Every brand finds itself on the receiving end of a negative comment at some point…

Every brand finds itself on the receiving end of a negative comment at some point. Smart businesses view these difficult moments as opportunities to turn the situation around and achieve a positive outcome. If you can address the negative post in a way that satisfies the commenter, they may delete the negative comment or even become an advocate for your brand.

STEP 1 – Find an Example
Find an example of a negative online mention for your brand (or a different brand, if none is available for your own). Screenshot the negative comment or copy the text of the comment to share in your discussion post.

STEP 2 – Read and Research
Read the following articles on why (and how) brands should respond to negative comments online.

How to deal with negative comments on social media by Hubspot
5 Steps for Dealing with Social Media Negativity by Buffer
A brand’s guide to dealing with negative comments online by Flagship Social
STEP 3 – Engage the Discussion Board
Discussion Prompts:

Provide an example of a negative social media comment from your company or a competitor, include the Tweet, Blog post, Facebook comment etc.
How would you respond? What exactly would you say to a disheartened customer?
How quickly would you respond? At what point will you try to move the conversation offline, and how?
Will you delete the original comment or let it stand? Why? If you elect to delete it, will you post anything to explain your decision on the site where the post was made, or communicate directly with the commenter? Explain your choice.
Initial Post Instructions
