Review and reputation management is more important than ever for businesses. Did you know that?…
95% of people search local businesses online.
91% of people read online reviews about local businesses.
Most consumers look at 2 or more reviews before making a decision.
84% of people trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation.
73% of consumers think that reviews older than 3 months aren’t relevant.
Whether you shop online or buy from local stores and service providers, chances are you also judge and ultimately choose who to patronize based on their online reviews… and not just of the Google variety. Based on your industry, there are likely other websites/apps which your target customers are turning to to research the products and/or services you offer (Facebook, Yelp and YP just to name the major ones).
For the past year, Rooted ID has been working diligently on a solution for a dilemma that we have seen both newbie and seasoned business owners or marketing managers struggle with during our 8 plus years in business…
How do you effectively ask for testimonials?
Like most any marketing agency, we recommend that our clients ask for testimonials as part of an overall marketing strategy to build their reputation. Stats prove that an average consumer considers online reviews in purchase decisions and that positive online reviews create new leads for companies, so it’s no wonder that review management software solutions for businesses are popping up right and left. The problem is that many businesses are signing up for these tools without a real understanding of how to leverage them.
We believe that the most effective way to ask for testimonials is to implement a defined process which includes offline & online marketing strategies centered around the functionality that quality review management software provides.
As such, we have designed an affordable review and reputation management solution ($125/month or less) to help business owners and marketing managers…
