More opportunities to collect Google and Facebook Reviews

Did you know that most studies show that over 90% of consumers read online reviews before making a purchasing decision? More interesting than that, studies have also shown that over 90% of consumers hesitate to make a purchase if the business has NO reviews! It is also important to remember that consumer reviews play a key role in your online presence by helping to boost your business’s website ranking with search engines. This makes it easier for new customers to find you! This means that having an effective way to collect and showcase your consumer’s reviews online is a very important part of gaining new business.

Collecting reviews can be a time-consuming process if you don’t have the right process or service in place to help you. In fact, having a service that automatically solicits Google and Facebook reviews is the best solution, but make sure they’re following the rules to help protect your online reputation while doing this. You don’t want to end up on the Google naughty list.

Guess what, you’re in luck because SocialCRM with LocalSearch can offer you that service. When you enhance the power of your SocialCRM marketing service by adding LocalSearch, you’ll open up more ways to collect Google and Facebook reviews. Here’s how:
