Online reviews are important…84% of people trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations. That is an AMAZING statistic! Reviews can really help drive and keep business.
We focused on online reputation a few months ago. In that blog, we explained what you can do to find where your business is being talked about, and what to do to make sure it stays positive.
Over half of consumers use Facebook as a place to learn about brands. The necessity of having an active Facebook page, as well as numerous reviews listed, is extremely important for your online reputation. Google is king! Having your name at the top of a Google search can help with great Search Engine Optimization (SEO), but if you don’t have good reviews, none of that great SEO will necessarily matter.
According to Google, “business listings that had at least 3+ star reviews” took 41 out of 47 clicks. 90% of consumers read less than 10 reviews before forming an opinion about a business. A great help, for a growing small business, is to get several reviews over the 3 star mark!
