Quick Tip: Twitter Whiners

Sometimes you will have an issue with someone repeatedly making negative comments about your company. You want them to stop but you are not sure how. Whether you intervene into the conversation should be discussed on a case by case basis. However, if you feel it is libel you may want to step in sooner than later. The best advice I can give is to contact this person via twitter and offer to help anyway you can. Most times they will stop talking about you once they know you are listening. Unfortunately, if they keep it up there is not much you can do. The more you respond the more negative attention you will get. Usually it is better to just let them rant. There is a certain type of person who just likes to complain about everything, and the people reading their twitter feeds will probably figure that out pretty quickly and learn to ignore the rants. Eventually they will get tired of talking about you, and move one to someone else. As long as you make that initial step to reach out and lend a hand, you will maintain a good company image.

Negative Twitter Comments

And How to Deal With Them

Getting involved in a conversation with someone writing bad comments about your company on Twitter is a slippery slope. Ninety percent of the time I recommend not intervening. People need to let off steam and they will find a way to do it whether you’re watching or not. I only recommend you intervene if you believe that there is something your company can do to help. For example if they say “I hate Company x, I will never use them again!” let it go, you will never be able to satisfy every customer. However, if they say “I hate Company X, I ordered their product 10 days ago and I still haven’t gotten it!” In this instance you may want to participate in the discussion because there is something concrete that you can do to help the situation. In this example you may want to use their name from twitter and try to figure out what is going wrong with their order and fix it. Then you can go onto Twitter, identify who you are and who you work for and explain that you are sorry for the delay and that you have put in a request for immediate delivery.

The one thing to be careful about is how you obtain the customer’s information. Check with your company’s legal team to find out what you can and cannot do. If you are not able to get the customer’s information or the shipping information it is best to contact the person via twitter. Let them know who you are and who you work for. Then tell them you want to help anyway you can and ask them to send you their information via twitter message or personal email so that you can deal with the matter more confidentially. It is very important to double check with someone else in your company before you send a message. You can never…I repeat NEVER take it back and you don’t want to fuel the fire.

The most important thing to remember is your image. If you believe that someone on twitter can benefit from you intervening, than it will benefit your image as well. Showing people that you are listening and willing to help will make them feel empowered, which can lead them to tell their friends about your company.

Next Tuesday we will address what to do if you can’t get someone to stop making negative comments. If you want advice about a specific incident happening to your company, leave a message below explaining your situation.

Quick Tip: Who is talking about you on Twitter?

With millions of people on twitter, you must be wondering what they are talking about? Even if you do not have a twitter account you can still see if people are talking about your company. All you need to do is go to twitter.com and find the big search bar on the top. Type in your company’s name and search. The search bar will help you find conversations where people are using your company’s name. Keep in mind the comments may have nothing to do with you, so it is important to read the context surrounding the comment. Just click on their picture and it will take you to the conversation. Also realize that the search only checks comments made in the last few days, so try a few times over the next couple of weeks.

Check back on Friday to find out what to do if people wrote something bad about your company on Twitter.

Getting it Right the First Time

I received an e-mail recently entitled, “Cutting Costs In Tough Economic Times is a Reality.” The title struck me – it really got me thinking about how IWD stands apart from the competition.

A number of IWD’s clients come to us because they are looking to redesign their websites to utilize SEO and social media strategies. So how does this tie into cutting costs? Simply stated, if their sites had been designed and optimized correctly the first time, our clients would not have to allocate additional funds for a re-design.

At IWD, our team of professional designers, copywriters, programmers and optimization specialists gets it right the first time.

Unlike many of our competitors, we know a strong website is more than a pretty homepage – we deliver websites that are marketing tools designed and optimized to drive sales, support growth and to position our clients above the competition.

But don’t just take my word for it – click here to read what our clients have to say.
