Why online reviews matter for your bottom line

Never before has the reputation of your company been as important as today. In this digital world, customers can create and view online reviews in seconds. Perspective is everything, and what your customers say about your business defines the quality of your product and service. Word of mouth will always be important, but online verification and investigation are a convenient tool. Most people prefer to research a product or service before trying it. If your business has a less than stellar online presence, this can impact your future sales.  

“Not only does 97 percent of consumers read online reviews but 88% say they trust reviews are much as recommendations from friends and family.” – Brightlocal.com

Constantly having new reviews boosts local SEO and leads to a higher search ranking. When your business is noticed online, sales increase. Consumers and search engines define your brand's reputation. Having great, authentic reviews give your customers a taste of your brand before they experience it. The quickest way to acquire new customers is online. Consumers choose what restaurant, nail salon, barber shop they want to try out next, by doing some quick research. You only have a couple seconds to stand out from your competitors. The last thing you want is a couple of bad reviews to sour your brand's image.

Local search results rank businesses based on rating, quantity of reviews, and recency of reviews. If you have a poor rating and struggle to get new reviews, how are you going to stand out? If you only have a few good reviews, you leave your business vulnerable to the potential impact of one or two bad reviews. You need a constant stream of new reviews.
