Prioritizing online reviews will help build your company and create a positive online presence.
Consumers increasingly rely on reviews to make decisions about the products and services they purchase:
- 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations
- 92% of people regularly rely on reviews when making a local buying decision
Building customer reviews showcasing your products and services is an ideal way to provide third-party proof that your business is trustworthy, provides quality products and services and most importantly, your customers are happy and willing to share their experience.
Not only do reviews showcase a positive online presence, they boost your local visibility in search! Reviews are extremely important for local search. Directories like Google and Yelp! have made them an essential element for ranking well in local search.
