The ABCs of How to Make Reviews Boost Your Business
How many times have you been determined to make a purchase but then decided NOT to because you see that the business, service, or product has a bunch of negative reviews and 2 stars? If you’re like most people, more often than you can remember.
At the same time, how often have you been undecided about a purchase, but after seeing a bunch of 5-star reviews and reading glowing comments, you make the choice to pull out your credit card and take a leap.
Online reviews have become one of the most powerful drivers of purchasing decision in modern commerce, and they also affect how well you rank in search results. Do you really think you should leave yours to chance?
In this 45-minute webinar SEO Master Trainer Ross Barefoot will be joined by SEO and reputation management technician Matt Campbell as we teach you the fundamentals of protecting your most powerful asset, your online reputation, by encouraging good reviews and dealing with bad reviews before they do unnecessary damage.
Here are some of the action items you’ll be able to get done at the end of this webinar:
- “Ask” for reviews in a way that will keep you from violating strict review guidelines at Google, Yelp, and other review sites
- Find those dissatisfied customers who keep their complaints to themselves, right up until they share them will all of their friends online
- Be able to respond to the worst case scenario in a way that can turn a complaint into a selling feature
- Know what types of complaints might shut down a disparaging reviewer, and what types of actions will simply waste your time
