With one tap on their smartphone, ANYONE can find you and all of your competitors, right on Googles local business search.
And, what helps them decide which business to visit, call and buy from?
Well, they simply check out and read your overall ratings and reviews.
In todays consumer driven World, online ratings and reviews are the Number 1 deciding factor, when looking for local products and services.
In fact around 75% of customers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations. And, 70% of customers look for and choose a business with a minimum of at least 6 to 10 reviews.
Reviews are now considered so important, that major search engines and review sites now rank each business higher or lower in their local search results, depending on how many recent reviews that business has and their overall rating score.
The more positive ratings and reviews a local business has, the higher they are likely to appear in the search results. And of course the more positive reviews a local business has, the more trustworthy they appear and the more customers they attract over their competition.
Now, let's talk about YOUR business for a moment. Do you have at least 5 to 10 recent positive reviews for your business, or plan to get them?
You see, whether you are a fledgling business and you're tired of wasting money on advertising, or you are looking to grow your business revenue and customer base?, local reviews help you get found and stand out from the crowd when customers are searching for you online or on their smartphones.
It is as simple as that.
