When to engage in a conversation?

  • First and foremost, if everything is positive: The fact that every possible comment is mostly positive is a great position to be in. During this period, the brand must do everything to create a lot of buzz.
  • If everything is neutral: This indicates that the company is boring and is ultimately leading to danger.
  • Lastly, if negative things are said: There is underperformance in comparison to expectations, and it must be addressed as a top priority. During this time, businesses must be extremely cautious not to instigate any more conversation than is absolutely required.
