Forrester Study: Reignite Growth with Hybrid Customer Experiences | Download the study
Customer reviews are one of the most important channels brands can use to optimize their online reputation. By tapping into the power of reviews, you not only improve the customer experience but you also stay ahead of your competitors. Customer reviews also influence ranking in local search results, resulting in increased clicks, visits, number of prospects and sales.
Managing your clients' online reputation wherever their customers are talking about them includes identifying and monitoring their current and prospective customers’ feelings about their product, service or locations on more than one platform.
One of the best ways to optimize a brand's online reputation is through customer reviews and comments on social media platforms.
Take complete control over your clients' online brand image with impactful reputation management solutions.
If your client already has local search visibility, a good review rating is crucial for establishing trust and helping consumers make their purchasing decisions. Every time potential customers use words such as: best, top, great and highest rated, Google will show them businesses with a review rating of 4.0 or higher in the results first.
By giving users the power to select the highest-rated businesses in a given area, reviews have become a major ranking factor in local search. The higher the review score of your business location, the more likely it is to reach nearby consumers.
Reviews give you a wealth of customer data to spot and monitor trends. Easily highlight issues with specific locations, so you can act quickly and use the insights to predict similar problems in other locations.
The easiest way to take advantage of reviews is by including them as a channel to leverage in your digital marketing plans. Start by getting proactive with existing customers and leads. This can be as simple as sharing location-relevant news, promotions and events across all platforms.
Encourage customers to review your clients' business and then respond to reviews immediately, showing them that you appreciate their feedback.
From one easy-to-use, centralized platform, you can respond to reviews in seconds, upload images from an event or fire off a promotion on Facebook — all in real-time.
