Business Building Insights

  • One of the things you can’t “game” is what people say about you online.
  • It’s important to be active and manage your online reputation.
  • Be in tune with what your customers are saying online and truly listen.
  • We lost the art of asking. It’s okay to ask for people’s help to write a review.
  • Strong social proof is valuable. Shift your focus towards attracting reviews – recent, frequent and relevant reviews.
  • Engage with customers and listen to what they have to say.
  • You can’t please everybody. There will be negative reviews. When they appear, respond promptly so they know you’re listening, you care and you want a resolution.
  • Reviews build your search ranking too. Think of it as new approach to SEO.
  • Once you’ve gotten good reviews, market them on your social media platforms, in emails and on your website.
