If possible, outline the possible solutions in the published content to better demonstrate company’s commitment to a quick resolution and aides message control.
2. Monitor to gain the actionable insight
The crisis consultants need to lay their hands on the various advanced software programs that monitor the news and social media happenings in real time thus, making them stay close to what’s happening in the market and also stay updated about the public’s mood and sentiments.

While providing crisis management services, the consultants need to understand that repairing brand reputation primarily requires transparency.
