As my point of view, if one company got a bad Impression it is so hard to back it's normal. Because the company must be placed for resolving problems of consumers. If it is met failed means it is a failure to resolving problems of the customer. So back to the problem, if it solved then people will start approaching this company again.

First of all, we would like to know that why the business has earned a bad name in the market so that we can implement according to that because each and every problem has its own reason at the place. There are some common reasons which are going to be explained. Offering bad quality, less quantity, late delivery, High prices etc. If a company tries to use proper strategy to get rid of the bad name so that company may get rid of the bad name because it is not impossible only there is need of a proper strategy to implement at the market place.

Hi everyone,

According to me, if a business gets a bad name attached to it, then I feel it is quite difficult to get rid of that name, though its not completely impossible. Business has to identifies its flaws and work upon that, come up with new strategies, improve the quality of its products and services, try gaining public goodwill by identifying customer needs and satisfying their wants. Also it needs to realise its responsibility towards society and focus should be more on wealth maximization than on profit maximization. It will take time but it is not an unachievable task. Thank you.

For a business firstly it is very hard to establish its name among its customers and prove to be a reliable product and once established it is even harder to keep up its name.

So if a business gets a bad name attached to it, it can always come up again by using effective stratergies, for example, let us see the case of nestke whose one of the most favourite product got associated with illegal practices but then nestle soon recovered from this phase by gaining people's confidence once again! and this was done by putting up effective advertisements etc.

A business organization can easily get rid of the Bad name it had earned is just by satisfying the customer needs in all aspects. Be it the quality or price. The product the company launch must be reliable in such a way that even a layman can use it. In spite of having to satisfy the customer needs, the organization must also work towards the welfare of the people, especially during Havoc periods. Last, but not the least the business organization has to pay the Government Bills properly and above all the employees must be given incentives and awards to enhance their working skills, hence they will be loyal towards the Organisation.

Business is all about taking a risk and managing it. It may happen that business has to go through the bad stage but everything is not permanent. Steps should be taken to solve it. They should figure it out what is the reason behind it what is its cause and then take steps to recover it although it's difficult to regain the same level of trust but instead of being hopeless various steps should be taken to obtain the good name back. Like customers opinion will be helpful to improve the quality of the product and satisfying the demand of the customers. It is one of the main motives the business if customers will be not satisfied they had to go through bad name because customers will criticize if they do not get what they want their product to be.

First of all, once a company or business has earned a bad reputation, it will be a tough ladder up. But that does not mean they should get bogged down and take a drastic step which can further hamper the situation. There should be a proper planning stage in which it discusses what all went wrong, how they went wrong and what needs to be improved. Then proper research should be conducted depending upon the business. They should try to find out from the customers why they were not satisfied. Every persons opinion does matter and should be taken into consideration without any prestige or ego.

For example I might be a random person who is speaking to my friend saying that xy brand of mobile is not at all good and suggest not to buy it. Try to find out what his reason might be. Small inputs give way to bigger results. Then once all this is done, the team should work out and implement all these inputs adding innovation if possible. Then marketing and advertising again is a mammoth task since this business has already gained a bad reputation. Creativeness and understanding of customer needs and emotions plays a huge role. These are some actions which a business can take in order to gain back its glory. As I had mentioned, it is not an easy task given the competition it might be having but investing time is also necessary.

And again make a come back by selling product at a cheaper rate as in India max people first priority is the cost of the product.

First of all, the company needs to be changing its standards that have caused for a bad reputation. It should remove the persons causing for it. To regain the lost fame, it should attract the customers by the method of DIRECT TO HOME. The executives should go the people, meet them personally and ask for their ideas and try to implement them.

A team of people should complete the task. It will create a good and positive response among the people. If the condition is too worse, then the company name should be changed, as a method of tactics. The products should be released with lesser prices for some period of time. The company might worry about break even point but they should keep in mind that if the people trust the company, break even point is not at all a big concern.

Yes, it is very difficult to gain the reputation what they had before, but the same time it is not impossible. Firstly know the main reason why it has happened and make sure there is no next to it. Go for advertisements and do not remove the employees for that cause. If so employee may also spread the news against the company.

According to me its very difficult for any company to get rid of its bad name that it loose at once, because earning reputation is very difficult. Moreover bad name directly affect the turnover of the company. But as we all know nothing is impossible. So in this situation company has to revised management plan and strategy to recover its position in market again. Company should give more attention to that area for which company reputation fallen. Moreover company have to invest on advertising and endorsement and maintain its quality forever.

Once a company gets a bad name its very difficult to get rid of that. So employees are the assets of the organization, they can help the company in such a situation. Better hard work, marketing strategies etc are helpful to overcome such situation.

Famous companies such as cad bury, coca -cola also had faced such problems. Once worms were found in cad bury and later this bad name was overcome by appointing a good brand ambassador ie: Amitabh bachan who is a famous, huge fan following and trusted film celebrity. Same has happened with that of coca-cola. Earlier in my childhood days the public was saying that acidity is too high.

So it is damaging the teeth, it has the power of decaying the teeth. At that time we were not used to drink. But what happened now. The company sales volume has been increased and it is one of the famous company here.

So bad name also can be recovered by means of team effort and unity. By means of adopting proper marketing strategies, providing awareness to the customers. After all customers are considered as the king of the market/business.

Hello friends.

It is a very difficult task to earn someone's trust but it is very easy to lose it.

That's why, it will be a very difficult task for an organization to get rid of the bad name but nothing is impossible.

To get rid of,

First of all, it is necessary to find out the main reason and the persons who are involved (if any) and try to understand why such situation occurred.

The, organization should make a proper strategy and plans to work in the direction of the removal this bad name and also should try to convince the customers and society into your favor.

Employers should also accept their responsibilities and should work as a team.

Organization should form different teams to work in the different area like one team take care of the consumer demands, another one should take care of the work to be done properly so that the product can be ready on time and the costumer don't has to wait etc.

Also, such organization should do something for the society welfare.

How can a business get rid of the bad name that it has earned. As per my opinion we should design a chart i.e. 5W AND 1H. It describe WHO, WHEN, WHAT, WHY, WHERE AND HOW. Once we made a chart then go for solving the things so that next time will not be happen.

This task should do by top management without blaming to employee and customer. They should make a company policy in such a way that no one can do again such type of mistake again. The employee should work with dedication and made 100% effort to rid of the bad names. The customer should be giving time to overcome from bad names. It is very difficult task so every top management have to be patience, positive approach, persistence attitude.

When company get bad reputation then company should try to find the the reason why name of the company is being spoiled. If company gets the reason then it should try to resolve it with patience and cleverness. Company will produce good quality of products and these products will be available for customers in cheaper rate. Company must take some responsibilities and obligation for their employees, customers, society, government and environment.

Company's responsibility for employees :-company should not prevent labour turnover and not get out them without a reason this spoils the name of company.

A business reputation is often linked to customers satisfaction. If customers are not satisfied, it will surely bring in a bad name for the firm and getting back the reputed name requires a lot of patience on the part of the company. Once the reason of failure is recognized, the problem is half solved. Then the company must rework on its goal in such a way that such failures are not repeated again. For example when Nokia found there were some problems with the batteries of some sets, it offered new batteries in exchange to the customers and this strategy really helped.

Secondly, the company must try to get in partnership with some other reputed company or must go for some good brand ambassadors. Moreover the company should go for checking the feedback's and reviews of customers and then acting on the complaints as soon as possible.

Yes I am pretty sure that it will takes lot of time to recover (get good name) rather than to get bad name, First it had to collect the reasons for that and employees plays a vital role in developing a company and it's business. Even it is success or failure they must share.

Well I feel that any company's stability depends on many factors i.e. it has to fulfill certain obligations and responsibilities towards the society, government, consumers, employees, environment etc.

So the main point occurs that how to satisfy them. This can done by fulfilling its responsibilities honestly. Like.


1. Providing them good quality products.
2. Selling these goods at reasonable prices.


1. Paying taxes honestly.
2. Paying taxes on time.
3. Not to indulge in corrupt activities.


1. As they are only directly or indirectly responsible for creating these social problems so they have to only put the initiative to solve the problems like that of terrorism, corruption etc.
2. Providing social aids like organizing free health check up camps or any other thing just like that.


1. Paying them fair salaries.
2. And just not taking off there jobs without any reason.


1. Using the resources efficiently.
2. Giving back the earth whatever taken from her i.e.we have not inherited this earth from our forefathers rather we have borrowed it from our future generations paying them by making all the debts.
3. Proper disposal of wastes so not to harm the ecosystem.

SO, these are the things by which a company can gain a good reputation. Though it will take time but it will provide a long term interest to the firm. It could also help the company even in the BAD TIMES!

The most important things which a business earns are trust and good will. When a business has a bad name it looses both of the above mentioned. In this case it is very very difficult to get those back. No matter how hard the people associated to that business try to clean the name, its quite a possibility that they'll face failure numerous times. Also, strong competitors will raise the point again and again about the bad business, thus pulling it back. This is a very problematic situation. This has to be dealt with great patience, cleverly and with positive approach. But not everyone has the required potential to do so.

Hi friends,

A company when gets a bad name to get rid of the bad name it takes a lot of time and requires patience all the positiveness attained by the company I lost and it acquires the negatives feeling in approaching that company by that customer.

It requires lot of repairing or a damage control methods like.

Creating awareness among the customers through a good brand ambassador.

Properly checking to eliminate the occurrence of any new problems.

Creating awareness through live programs.

It is entirely like a crop.

If a crop/plant is affected by the worn we cannot get it back but we can stop it from spreading it to the other parts through pesticides so that we could manage the crop from entirely damaging but it takes a lot time.

Be patient, through hard work and sincerity will definitely bring success and fame to the organisation.

I liked the saying of one comment and I am agree with him to regain the lost land is hard than conquaring new land. The world is now a big single market and the fate of the company is decided by consumers via trust and reputaion. If a company lost its good will the company needs many years to regain the goodwill, example when it was found coca cola is contaminated with pesticides the sales went down same happened with cadbury. To regain the reputation company must look for the root of the bad reputaion and then the company should find the alternatives to solve the problem. Its important to choose the right alternative for the problem and finally should impliment the alternative at test level so that we can check the effectiveness of the alternative before implimanting it on higher basis. The various alternatives could be use of celebraties, use of media, use of personal relations, use of responsiblity management depending on the nature of problem or say root of bad reputation.

It is very difficult for a business to get rid of the bad reputation. First step is to find out the reasons for bad reputation. Who is responsible for this reputation? Is it a person or a product or a service? Second step is to improve or remove (if unable to improve) the reasons for bad reputation. Third step is to gain the confidence of the consumer. The business, to regain its good reputation has to start from scratch.

Yup, good reputation to a company comes after a hard and long process of satisfying customers. Ones if the company goes wrong in some condition then it will loose its reputation which it gained in that long process.

It can regain it by giving a good and cute message to the public in commercial advertisements or newspapers, and of course by giving good quality tested product with reasonable prices. In this situation company should not go for discount method for their products, or else the public may think the company is influencing the customers to buy their products which would be a harmful. Instead of that, a company can give the reasonable price for the product with a great marketing strategy.

The bad reputation got is verd hard to wipe it,but its not the impossible deed,the campany has to change their strategies ever since they have started their company and has to make a rapid change in their strategy applications.
Some initiatives should be made like,

->Promotions byy celebrities.
->getting in to the people with their new product launches.
->should make use of the social networkink sites helps them alot.
->the best is to make their business get into face book with e-commerce sites.
->and last but not the least they should maintain best quality in order not to loose the up coming customers.
Thank u for co-operating me for feling free to give my views.

A business can get rid of their bad reputation by delivering a quality product to their customers. You can ask me how will a customer trust a company which has lost its reputation. One can give a sample product to prove the quality. Once the customer is satisfied he can trust the product.

Hi friends I'm sharath, as per my opinion Its possible to decline the elevated bad reputation for the firm by accepting the bad things that done by the firm and by promising the customer to give the ecstatic products and services, and also the firm must empathetical think the problems of the customer with the product and make a new goals and responsibilities and take corrective action to not to re-happen in future.

Hello friends, I think it is very difficult for any business to grow and make a come back again once it has earned a bad name however it is not impossible, so to make a come back it will have to make lot of efforts with patience.

1) look back and study their Mission and Vision statement, what was it that the wanted to achieve and why they failed.

2) after finding the exact reasons rework on their Vision, Mission and ethics they want to follow.

3) they can make partnership with a good companies to enhance their image or they can also make such brand ambassador who are having a good image in country.

4) they should also work on their CSR policies that is very necessary nowadays, it will surely enhance the image of the company.

It is said in war that it is difficult to regain a lost land more than conquering a new one, the blood shed is more. Same applies to businesses, once a bad name is achieved it is very difficult to wipe it out though nnot impossible. Firstly thecompany sould assess the reaosn for the bad reputation in terms of product, service, quality. Once identified the next task is to develop a startegy to wipe out the reason associated with it. T give an example of cadbury, when it was established that worms were found in the chocolate, they endorsed Amitabh Bachahn to promote the product again after retifying their fault. Today no one rememebrs about it as there was never a second chance. Had the case occured again they would have been in troble. In fact today it is one of the established brands in Inndia.

For a business, it is not so easy to get rid of the bad name it has earned earlier. But it is not impossible kind of thing. it can be done by taking few basic steps such as-

1. Identify the facts that causes in this failure,
2. Take appropriate solutions in order to remove these failure
3. Advertise about the improvement
4. Company may also give some offers to attract their customers.

I think that these steps must be followed in order to get rid of bad name earned earlier.

A business can get rid of bad name it has earned by starting every thing from atomic level, since the bad reputation would initially run with the company and its product, so failure will stay with it for a very long time but at the same time an optimistic approach will definitely fetch one good opportunity ,sooner or later and their the path for success will be an integral part of getting a business out of such bad times is the never say die attitude if that is not their nothing will happen

Really the existence of business in this present competitive world is completely based on reputation. However that fame can be achieved only by providing right quality of goods in reasonable price and means. When the consumer loses the confidence and he never again tries to purchase that particular product and even he won't let others too. So the brand image would go into vain.

In order to rebuild the same reputation there should be certain campaigns to be conducted by the industrial personnel and other relevant means apart from providing right quality products. This would improve and retain the acquired good reputation. As we all know that haste makes waste nothing can be achieved in one day so keep maintaining the better quality standards.

Bad business image can be get rid of by good ethical practices that is social responsibility, promotional campaigns, etc. It can increase the societal image of the company.

Negative reputation leads to the high rate of turnover,reduce the market value, etc leads to the loss of the firm and may leads to the winding up.

To get back the reputation, the firm should be more socially responsible, maintain quality policy,increase promotional campaigns, environmental friendly, meet changing needs of consumers, etc.....

Lets take example of Catbary chocolate, which was found with worms in it.

But with the help of smart advertisement with Mr. Big B, they are back on their track.

Even in assembly line cocka cola soft drink, government auditors had fond fungus.

Unfortunately Indian public forgets very soon.

Company can get in to their tracks through advertisements, by offering discounts.

There can be many reasons for a company gaining bad name. But there are also required solutions to get rid of it, for example when cadbury earned bad reputation as it was found that the chocolates contained pesticides that time the strategy of re-earning the faith of the customers was practised. they used Amitabh Bachchan to advertise the fact that cadbury has now used improved techniques to improve its quality.

Moreover company has to give greater attention towards advertisement, customer wants and feedback and also should make the customers feel that they are very important to the company. By using such strategies and modifying them as per the requirement a company can be able to get rid of the bad name it has earned.

The first impression is often a lasting impression. This is especially true in case of reputations of corporates.Regaining the good impression that is once lost is an uphill task but is by no means impossible. A couple of steps that seem simple but take incredible effort on the part of the company that has lost its reputation include: Accepting the incident/ event that has caused the loss of reputation, Remedying the situation by the company, and following visible steps to ensure that the same incident doesn't repeat itself.

Remedying the situation is bound to prove costly to the company, however this is a cost which must be borne since the loss in number of customers due to the ruined reputation could prove even more disastrous.

The business can get rid of bad name only when it fully satisfy the consumers because business earn good reputation and maximum profit only when consumers buy their product. And the product should be cheap and good so that more consumers are attracted to buy.

The companies have a aim to maximize profit in all circumstances but it can't be done without customers satisfaction.

So, first of all, it is needed to have a good behaviour with customers because rude behaviour is acceptable by none, and it can be major reason of company's bad reputation. Every customer should feel, they are the only one.

Find out the causes governing the bad reputation and execute the solutions as soon as possible because of today's cut throat competition. The solutions should be somewhat visible and satisfiable to the customer.

The Media should be handled properly and effectively as the media has the great impact on people by doing so a company's good will can reach to each and every person who had been affected atleast once and never leak the information about the internal hazards that company following because of bad reputation, show that its running well and working in faith of customer and never let opposition to take advantage of your company's bad reputation.

Make a time to time survey and Add new and advanced features to the product as a surprise package, according to customer's need before your opposition and keep an eye on them.

I think goodwill of a business is prime important factor in its success and growth but as a businessman think and plan things it may not come in its way there may be different reasons which can create its bad image example-the relationship of the staff with the customers is rude, quality have been lowered, prices have increased and many more things. Now the only way for a businessman to get rid of this is to improve the factors causing the bad image, if posible change the location and name because it take lot of time to maintin goodwill but take a minute in spoiling it.

When a bad reputation strikes, the preliminary thing that has to be the finding out of what is the factor is, and the realisation that it could pull you all the way down. It is war time and execution is to be done at the max speed, hence the strategy should be implemented too fast. It should also be made sure that the solution is known to the public, ie, each and every one of the affected ones at least. Media should be handled appropriately and should be tide turned so as not to get the opposition.

When any company received bad reputation. There may be mainly two reasons, first is quality of product and second is corruption. When any of the condition arise which affects company's reputation. The company should take instant step to sort out this problem immediately. Firstly all the causes should be identified & the suitable steps should be taken to regain the trust of their customers. For example when Nokia found that there was some problem in the battery of in some models of its mobile. Then company immediately offered their customers to replace the battery by new one. This immediate step keep their customers all times satisfied.

On one side big companies can easily come out this types of situation because their name is enough to win the faith of customers. But the bad reputation creates much problem for smaller firms which are localized to small region and doesn't have large capital. When the company gets bad reputation at that time company's member should approach their customers to get the feedback & then immediate steps should be taken to come out the situation and regain the customers faith & satisfaction.

A bad reputation to the business is one of the major reasons that would reduce the turnover as a whole. Doing a business on loss is of no use. First, I will make a study on the causes and see how it can be rectified. To make people/clients/customers or whomsoever to gain their confidence back on my business deals with them. Change the name, like the axis bank did. Make people believe that its an entire different company. Implement new marketing and advertising strategies to attract more people. Lastly, that should be a lesson. I will never ever let it happen again.
