The number one goal of most businesses is leaving a good impression on their customers. A good impression means a good review which results in more business. However there is one surefire way for your business to leave a bad taste in your customers mouth. Pests.
In many businesses and organizations such as restaurants, schools, hospitals, and hotels it is especially important to keep your place of operation free of infestations. Infestations can almost always guarantee a customer not only being scared away from you business but also scaring others away. One of the most powerful ways to spread information is through the internet. If a customer discovers bugs in your business it is very likely that they will make it known on the internet that your business is not sanitary. This can be especially lethal for restaurants as sanitation is vitally important and pest problems are a way to easily have your business shut down.
Sometimes an infestation may even make the headlines on a popular news or blogging website. The last thing you want is a story about rodents or insects or other pests floating around with your business’s name attached to it. Word of an infestation can spread like a wildfire and soon completely wipe out your customer base and deter any new customers from doing business with you. Information on the internet may not seem like a big deal, but often times a large amount of a business’s reputation is on the internet. From things like reviews and testimonials to features on famous websites and location in search engines. The internet is where a lot of people will get information about your business and form their opinion based on what they find. Bad information spreading about your business can ultimately cause it’s downfall.
Sanitation is a big concern for many people. People don’t want to eat in a place that has a rat problem or receive education or medical treatment at a place with cockroaches crawling around. If a person goes to eat at your restaurant or takes a class at your institution and sees cockroaches crawling around or silverfish scurrying through the room they are quite likely going to tell their friends and family about the conditions of your organization and deter people from ever giving you their business.
Publicity is one of the most vital ways of growing your business. Good publicity and reviews from high customer satisfaction lead to business growth. Dissatisfied or disgusted customers lead to bad reviews and publicity which can ultimately kill your business. Pest control is important in business because the cleanliness and sanitation of your business plays a big part in the way people perceive your business and review you.
The most important thing to remember is that good publicity being spread equals fast business growth. It is also important to remember that cleanliness plays a big part in the perception of your business. A clean and sanitary business with a nice environment and atmosphere will always win good reviews.
