Online review sites – are they driving business your way – or away?
Since one of the most common ways that people find a business is a quick search on their mobile device, online reviews have become your first impression – whether you like it or not. In the absence of a personal recommendation or prior experience with your company, when people search for a local service, they receive a few recommendations on Google. These results display your company’s basic information as well as a snapshot of the number of reviews you’ve had as well as your average rating. Potential customers use this rating to determine which company to visit with a weight like that of a personal recommendation.
When asked in an independent survey, many customers stated that most of the time that they didn’t do exhaustive research into a company and rely on its star rating and reviews to decide nearly 85 percent of the time.
Have you looked at your online reviews lately?
One of the easiest ways to determine if your online reputation needs work is by searching your company and looking at your reviews. Are there negative reviews that you have received and not responded to in some way publicly? Do you have clusters of reviews and gaps between them – positive or negative? These issues can directly influence how customers view your company.
