How to handle a complaint given on forums, social media, blogs?
To handle a complaint on forms / social media as I suggested earlier we should have a positive dialogue with the customer and try to solve the problem which he/she has faced amicably. After making sure that the complaint is resolved. Request the customer to give a thanks on the same forum sing that the issue is resolved. Because there are lots of people there who is the part of forum and which gives a positive impact on them in respect to our brand.
In case of blog. It will be same process but in this case we have to contact the clog owner to convey our message. But there are lots of cases where our competitors can also leave some negative comments to defame our brand name. In this case we can directly approach google via google forum and give a complaint against them. But before doing so we should have a proper evidence that we are not wrong and it’s the competitor who is trying to defame our brand name.
