Taking Care of Trolls in Your Online Marketing Campaign

Trolls are individuals who, through the power of online anonymity, are capable of having a platform for extreme views regarding business and other topics. If they target your online marketing campaign, you could have some reputational trouble on your hands. Here are a few things you need to do to take care of trolls to ensure your marketing campaign becomes successful.

  1. The Fire Alarm

Set a boundary where trolls will truly have eroded the business’ reputation with their remarks. Because of their anonymity, they could have their own listeners. Remember, you cannot remain silent, and you are spending money on your online marketing campaign.

  1. Use Facts

Trolls will try to provoke the social network or blog manager’s replies with offensive remarks, or for some with finesse, some facts why the product does not work. Counter-acting this by using facts and research that you have conducted with specialists in the industry could help reverse the opinion of trolls, and public viewpoint.

  1. Passion

It is true that when you fight anonymous trolls in the internet, you are participating in the “Retarded Olympics.” But then again, people can witness your passion for your business, products, services, and your responsibility for the business, by responding promptly and calmly against trolls. You could use obscene offensives by anonymous attackers to prove that you mean business for your customers.
