When working online as an internet marketer it is very important that you build yourself an outstanding reputation. Most marketers who attempt to market using questionable methods end up with a bad reputation and a ruined business, while those honest marketers with gleaming reputations claim all the customers. There are many ways in which you can ruin your reputation and many ways in which you can make sure that you are looked upon as a respected sales person or service provider, here are just a few.
Provide Excellent Customer Support
Customer support is possibly the most important aspect of any business online, or offline for that matter. If you want to build a good reputation then it is immensely important that you ensure that you keep your customers happy, after all it is those customers who provide you with business and pay for your products.
If a customer ever has a problem with one of your products and cannot get that problem solved, chances are the customer will refund their purchase and, more often than not, never buy from you again. It does not take long to answer an email or a support ticket and those few minutes spent typing a few sentences will ensure you keep yourself in your customers’ good books.
Only Promote Top Quality Products
If you ever venture into the world of affiliate marketing, there is one sure fire way of destroying your reputation, and that is by promoting useless products. So many marketers fail because they pitch product after product to their subscribers without making sure that the product in question fits their subscribers needs.
If you take the time out to research the product and make sure that if your subscribers were to buy it and use it, that it would be of benefit to them, then they will be eternally grateful. If they use a product you have recommended to them and they make money, then I am quite sure that they will be more than pleased with your recommendation.
Provide Your Subscribers With Content
Building a great reputation can be achieved simply by keeping your subscribers happy, and you can do this by sending them a little something every now and then to keep them interested in opening your emails, etc. It does not have to be much, maybe a free low value product, or whatever you feel you can provide to help your subscribers. This will give them an incentive to remain on your mailing list. If a subscriber thinks that they are going to receive something free and helpful every now and then, then the chances are they are going to stay.
However if you just bombard your subscribers with email after email, promo after promo, then before too long you will see your unsubscribing rate soar and you will earn yourself a poor reputation.
So if you want to become successful online it is vital that you ensure you build yourself an honest reputation. In the online world word spreads fast and if you use questionable tactics it wont be long before the majority of people know about it.
