The reputation of a business is both what they say about themselves and what others say about them. Managing reputation is nothing new; what’s new is how the internet and social media have changed the way businesses are being defined and how fast their reputations spread.
With over 33 million local reviews on Yelp alone, it’s clear that customers are sharing their opinions online.
