The Value of Business Listings and Customer Reviews for Success
Job #1 around here is client success. When our clients achieve their goals, we all succeed.
Imagine a 24,000% increase in your business
Imagine if your business saw a 24,000% increase in business interest? That’s what happened to one of our clients.
In a 30 day period, he saw a HUGE increase in interest for his business’ services. He came to us with a single goal; to make his business sustainable as his sole source of income.
To help the client achieve the goal, we set out to build a strategy that was simple, easy sustainable and very low-cost.
How to Create a Simple Reputation Management Strategy
- First up on the plan was a solid business Listing.
- The client adds Posts to his Listing on a regular basis.
- He includes images that represent his business and his approach.
- Using his customer’s keywords, he is able to match his Listing and services with what customers are searching.
- We included direct access to his booking app, phone numbers and location information.
- The client needed a web presence, separate from their personal social media accounts.
- We used Google’s ‘Site‘ tool to build an easy to use, single page site.
- Then we uploaded pictures that represented the work the client does.
- Links were included directly to the client’s booking app.
- We added business hours and location.
- And we included content that described and differentiated the client from others in the business category.
- Asking for Customer Reviews.
- Customer Reviews are one of the fastest ways to drive traffic to your Listing and website.
- Our client asked his raving fans to leave Reviews on his business Listing.
- On a regular basis he continues to request Reviews to drive local traffic to his Listing.
Asking for Reviews, or responding can be tough. It’s very un-Canadian of us to ask people to praise our work. For some tips and suggestions on how to respond to Reviews, or generate Reviews, read here or watch here.
