The ability to grow your online testimonials is an important part of every local business today. Not only can customer reviews increase a company’s ranking on search engine results, but are very likely to play an important role in buying decisions.

It is never too late to develop a strategy to capture reviews online

We have listed below some key points to keep in mind when building out your strategy.
It goes without saying that you should never write fake reviews for your own business. Nor should you ever consider paying or using 3rd parties to post fake reviews. Your patrons must post their own reviews using their accounts on the related review site.
I always advise my clients to implement a review capture strategy to include a simple yet effective web form. Our technology in particular, encourages positive reviews to get posted online, and limits negative reviews from being posted.
Training of your staff is also an important part of the reputation culture. The more that employees understand the value of exceeding customer expectations, the easier it will be to pile on the reviews.
Keep in mind, there is no rush to gather 5-star reviews, having a solid plan is most important. Please contact us if you have any questions. Visit our YP listing at, or give us a call we are glad to help 248-716-1936.

How do consumers use online reviews to make buying decisions?

It is important to keep in mind, consumers often identify with prior consumers. Let’s face it, if you are contemplating a choice between two companies, who would you choose? Company A with seven 5 star reviews or Company B with NO or even Poor reviews? The answer should be obvious – Company A!

If they read several positive reviews, especially for the specific service they are looking for…then …the decision is clear.

7 Ways to Use Negative Customer Feedback to Beat the Competition

“Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.” — Bill Gates
Negative feedback from customers can be a hard pill to swallow. It often feels unjust, unhelpful and inaccurate. Even the most professional business owners can be defensive and emotional in the face of criticism. And while business owners may intellectually know negative customer feedback is critical to improving their business — a 10-percent increase in Net Promoter Score (NPS) can correlate with a six to seven-percent increase in revenue — the hard bit is constructively incorporating it.

The following are seven things every business, small or large, can do to extract as much value as possible from negative feedback.
1. Gather competitive intelligence.
While you likely monitor your own reviews closely, it’s also important to scour the public reviews of competitors. By reading their reviews, especially negative ones, it’s possible to get a sense for how your products and services stack up to theirs and see if their customers have similar complaints. Careful reading of competitor reviews can also help you determine their weaknesses and find opportunities to win over their customers.
2. Benchmark performance against industry.
If 60 percent of your customers are very happy with the service they received, is that good? How does it compare to others in your industry? SurveyMonkey offers a tool to help you gauge this using their benchmarks. Similarly, some review sites offer detailed customer ratings on metrics such as service, value, quality, returns and shipping, which can also be used to benchmark performance.
