Why Are Google Reviews So Impactful On Small Businesses?

Great reviews are the key to getting new customers. The more reviews you have, the greater your the visibility and credibility — driving more customers and revenue to your business.

$

Customers see your Google reviews the instant they do a search for your business, forming powerful first impressions. The better your business looks, the higher your star-rating, and the more reviews you have, the greater your chances of making a fantastic first impression.

$

Your reviews are prominently displayed on local maps — one of the first places customers “comparison-shop” local businesses. 94% of consumers say they will pick you over your competitor if you have more reviews.

$

Better reviews help you rank higher in Google search, giving you higher visibility to potential customers. (According to Moz, Google reviews are the #3 most important factor in determining your search ranking.)

Google is currently the biggest online review platform (and most critical to Local SEO)

More and more customers are discovering local businesses through Google. This makes it more important than ever to consistently gather and broadcast quality online reviews from your customers.

How It Works

An Overview Of Our Reputation Marketing Process In Five Simple Steps

STEP 1: PREPARATION

We start by auditing and upgrading your online presence to ensure you are maximizing your reach across your Google My Business, Business Directories, and Social Media profiles. We get everything set up so you are ready to begin receiving customer reviews, to include a one-on-one training session.

STEP 2: GENERATE REVIEWS

We’ve made the toughest part about requesting reviews simple and easy for your customers. Simply send them a review request via email or text message, and our system will walk them through the process in just a few clicks. If they are happy with your service, they can leave a review. If they are disatisfied, they will instead be provided an opportunity to contact you directly and make it right.

STEP 3: FLAUNT YOUR REVIEWS!

This is where it gets really fun! We will automatically broadcast your best reviews all over the places that matter most to your customers: your web pages, social media, and the “Pop-Up Bubble” on your website. This “omnipresence” is so powerful because it builds trust and credibility before you even start your sales conversation.

STEP 4: MANAGE REVIEWS

Managing reviews gives you a chance to really shine as a business owner. We recommend replying to each customer review (glowing or not!) in a way that reinforces trust and a positive image of your brand. This engagement is a quick and simple way to amplify the impact of your reviews and make your business stand out amongst the competition.

STEP 5: OPTIMIZE & REPEAT

Not only is the feedback from your reviews useful for perfecting your customer experience, but you may find themes and ideas that you can use to power-up your marketing messages. We will make adjustments to the campaign as necessary to ensure we are maximizing your return on investment.

What Our Clients Say…

“We just had our best year of sales ever in 19 years of business, thanks to the marketing campaign you built for us… For the value we’re getting, it’s already paid for itself at least ten times over. We should have started working with you a long time ago.”

Anne Dallas

“We found Steph through a friend who referred us and it’s a huge relief to finally have someone who is so personally dedicated to our success. She’s honest, results-driven, and I think she’s brilliant.”

Janie Hoffman

“… After our first conversation I knew this was the right fit for us. We’ve since slashed our monthly marketing budget in half and are getting much better quality “leads” than we were before at a tiny fraction of our previous CPA (lower than what Zillow charges per lead…) .”

Gordon Decker

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS REPUTATION MARKETING?

Reputation marketing is a strategy to promote your business’s existing good reputation by highlighting and amplifying positive customer reviews and other positive brand content to boost sales.

WHAT MAKES THIS BETTER THAN THE COMPETITION?

We have done alot of research and seen what our competitors offer; they do a great job. However, we’ve built our system to be as feature rich, robust and capable as the best in the industry. We are able to offer better value for a lower price, simply because we have built this company without venture capital and we do not have the steep overhead that other companies have. The short answer is we get the job done very well, at a better price. 

WHAT'S THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO GATHER REVIEWS FROM MY CUSTOMERS?

The most effective way to gather reviews from your customers is to send them review requests via text and email, containing a direct link to your business profile on Google and other reviews sites.

Requesting reviews from your customers in-person is less effective because trying to find you manually is confusing and entails multiple steps. It may be time-consuming for your customers to do this on their own, and it’s easy to forget to do.

CAN'T I JUST BUY FAKE REVIEWS TO ACHIEVE THE SAME BENEFITS?

Under no circumstances should you attempt to purchase reviews. Not only is this unethical, but it could easily backfire on you.

What you’re risking when you buy fake reviews:

  • Degraded customer opinion of your business. (It’s not hard to tell which reviews are fake, and that could be a deal-breaker.)
  • Fines by the FTC
  • Google search ranking penalities that could make your website disappear
HOW DO I CLAIM MY BUSINESS ON GOOGLE?

Claiming your business on Google is simple, and is a must for any business that serves customers in its local area.

1. Find your business on Google. Under your listing, click on the link that says “Own this business”?

2. Confirm your business information (business name, address, phone number, etc.)

3. Verify your information. Postcard verification is the preferred method; Google will mail a postcard to your business address with a pincode to complete your profile verification online.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY “ONE BUSINESS TYPE PER ZIP CODE"?

While we’re working with you, we won’t work with your local competitors. (Otherwise, we would be competing against ourselves, and what would be the point of that?)

Your success is our priority – this means we will actually turn away business to ensure you are dominating your market.

This is one of the most significant qualities that set us apart from your other marketing options. Would you rather compete with us, or against us?

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO REQUEST ONLINE REVIEWS FROM MY CUSTOMERS?

We recommend requesting reviews the same day as you complete your sales transaction. This way, the transaction is still fresh on the customer’s mind.

The best practice is to systemize this by incorporating the review request into whatever “customer close-out” process that you already have in place.

WHY DO I NEED YOUR SERVICE? CAN'T I JUST DO THIS MYSELF?

Yes, you can absolutely do this by yourself. But, oftentimes, doing this on your own can be time-consuming and easy to neglect.

You already have a lot on your plate as a business owner, so having us automate this process for you will save you tons of wasted time, guesswork, and frustration.

Consistency in gathering reviews is very important, and our automation ensures you will continue to collect a steady stream of reviews for as long as you work with us and continue to serve your customers.

Not to mention, the businesses who we automate the review request and publication process see, on average, an 8% increase in revenue after six months.

We make the review contribution as seamless as possible for your customers, which drastically increases the likelihood they will leave you reviews.

Our service pays for itself MANY times over!

DO I HAVE TO BE LOCKED-IN TO SOME KIND OF CONTRACT?

No. Our service is month-by-month, so you are free to cancel at any time.
