Let your reputation shine

Brand reputation management is critical to growing a business. A positive brand reputation builds loyalty and increases customer confidence in your brand and product, ultimately driving sales and bottom-line growth. But, are you aware of the online conversations people are having about your business? If you’re not, your potential customers are certainly aware of everything about you. How do you deal with what people are saying about your brand? You don’t. You manage it.

Online Reputation

Online reputation management (ORM) is all about being aware of the public conversations that people are having about your company online and managing your business profile by engaging with both praise and criticism for you via social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) and review channels (Yell, TripAdvisor, etc). The goal is for those seeking you out online to be met with an overall positive sentiment from those who have worked with you in the past.

Reviews and social comments from previous customers can play a crucial part in winning more business. 85% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations (Source: BrightLocal, 2017); so the practice of getting involved with what people are saying about you can be incredibly valuable.

That’s why, at My Business Advantage, we’ve partnered with Yell,com. They’re offering a free personalised report pinpointing exactly where your online ratings and reviews are, and what reviewers are saying about your business.

Run your free scan today and find out how Yell’s Reputation Manager service can help you effectively manage and grow your online reputation.

And, that’s not all…

The online reputation tool can help you:

Check, update and publish your business details across hundreds of relevant websites

Stand out on with a reputation-enhancing profile page

Get set-up and promote your business on key social media networks from a single dashboard

A business that regularly generates and responds to reviews is far more likely to be trusted and chosen by prospective customers. Reputation Manager provides all the tools you need to take control of and promote your online reputation.

Get to grips with GDPR before the 25th May

Does your business rely on knowing what your customers want?

  • Is tracking visitors and measuring performance to your website important?
  • Does your sales team buy in-lists?
  • Does your marketing team directly email all contacts from your CRM system?

If you answer ‘yes’ to all, or any, of these questions then you need to pay attention.

Right now, knowing General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is more important to your business, than knowing how to interact with your next customer.

From 25th May, 2018, your business tools (website and customer database) need to be GDPR compliant, with an updated privacy policy.

Why Think About GDPR?

The GDPR is the most important change in data privacy regulation in 20 years and the window to correctly process personal information is closing fast.

Here are some reasons why GDPR should be at the top of your list to avoid breaching:

  • If your website and business interactions don’t show compliance, then customers, competitors and law enforcers can report you to the Information Commissioner Office (ICO)
  • After investigation, being non-compliant, attracts a high fine of up to €20,000,000 or 4% of your turnover (whichever is greatest).

What can you do?

Getting it right, does not mean spending potentially £1,000s for a solicitor to draft you a bespoke document, or think the other way and risk getting it wrong by using a free online ‘privacy policy’ sellers. Use our GDPR specialist. At Fuel Card Services, we work with a GDPR Privacy Policy who provides 100% compliant GDPR privacy policies, along with supporting documentation for just £150.

Reasons to act now

For a limited amount of time you can purchase your GDPR privacy policy and the supporting documents for just £100 + VAT – a £50 discount.

Just click this link that will take you directly to the offer on My Business Advantage. Choose a package that suits your business needs, and apply the discount code ‘advantage50’ at checkout.

DON’T DELAY update your privacy policy and avoid a fine up to €20,000,000 or losing 4% of turnover.

Let It Go!… Help With Your Winter Weather Damage Insurance Claim

Storm Emma is naturally having an impact on the UK weather-wise. But the disruption is not just travelling alone; this cold snap can affect our homes and places of business.

Of course, if freezing temperatures cause a water pipe to burst, a boiler to combust or a roof to collapse due to sheer weight of snow or a fallen tree, then your building and contents, whether domestic or commercial, will have got you covered.

However, the task of dealing with the insurance claims officer, the hassle of organising the right plumber, builder or roofer to do the job, and the anxiety of coping with the disruption and inconvenience, might leave you feeling as emotional and exasperated as a direct run-in with ‘The Beast From The East’.

At Fuel Card Services, we have found a partner Aspray Ltd, that you can turn to for expert guidance and support on property damage insurance claims.

Aspray can manage your claim from inception to completion by dealing with your insurer, or appointed loss adjuster, directly to negotiate a settlement. Once works are agreed, Aspray will project manage vetted contractors to complete the reinstatement works, all the while, putting you, the policyholder first.

How Aspray will handle your Insurance Claim:

  • Arrange a site visit usually within 24 hours of your call.
  • Prepare and present a detailed schedule of works for your insurer. 
  • Liaise directly with your insurance company and loss adjuster, if necessary.
  • Oversee a team of vetted tradespeople.
  • Aim to restore your property as swiftly as possible 
  • Negotiate any business interruption settlement for home workers and business owners. 
  • Help arrange alternative accommodation, where required
  • Project manage the claim and stay in close contact with you throughout.

In short, Aspray’s work is only complete when you are satisfied with the repair.

Money off your excess:

Best of all, there is no charge to you for their service. If you appoint Aspray they will project manage the contractors and be paid directly by your insurers. Please note any policy excess stated within your policy will of course still apply.However, if you do instruct Aspray to take care of your insurance claim and all reinstatement works, as a customer of Fuel Card Services’, they are offering a £100 voucher towards your excess upon completion. Terms and conditions apply.

So, before you make an impact claim on your insurance, simply click here  and make the whole impact damage process to your assets, whether home or company, a cool summer breeze.


Wait a minute Mister Postman…

Let’s be frank: if you’re wasting time queuing in the Post Office, when you could be enjoying lunch; wasting money on stamps, only to find them gathering dust in an employee’s desk; or missing deadlines, because you couldn’t get the task done within office hours, you need to source some mailroom equipment that will save you time and money.
