5-Star Google Reviews
Yes, one of the best things for Ranking is Reviews for sure. 5- Star Reviews!
Online Reviews are one of the biggest local ranking factors for Google and Google Maps, second behind Google My Business. Yes, that means we have work to do, let’s get your Google My Business Profile and Knowledge Panel.
According to BrightLocal Local Consumer Review Survey, 79% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations from friends or family. I know, my daughter tells me all the time why and how she chooses a company online, they had good reviews!
Are you able to easily get reviews? Most people are Internet savvy, but we should always try to make it so easy for people to tell us how much they liked our service. Like sending a link by text or email, or attaching that very link to a monthly newsletter.

OK, so your are getting reviews, now what?
Respond to Your Reviews
That’s right, a great response can make the difference on every review, especially if they aren’t 100% happy. Responding shows that you are reputable and taking the high road. You don’t have to explain in micro-detail, just the jest and that you are willing to meet and/or talk to get the communication straightened out. That goes a long way.
Responding to good reviews, a piece of cake, right? Especially comment on how awesome your clients’ business is and if it is appropriate and you have used their services or know how they’ve treated others, leave them a review as well.
Bad Yelp Reviews – What do I do?
Yelp, can be really great for business, especially restaurants and lodging. Customers and non-customers have free reign and sometimes even after replying the bad review remains. Stay positive and know that other people reading reviews will check out the reviewer and if they see a pattern will know it’s exaggerated.
Reviews are a Conversion Factor
What happens after potential customers read good reviews about your business?
They come see you.
They search further for more validation on your Social channels and website.
Contact your business.
Sometimes they continue searching.
But… they will look at you. If they can’t find you and your reviews on Google and then see those reviews on your Website, well they may move on.
Proof is in the Pudding
Or in this case becoming your customer.
Did you know that only 50% of consumers consider using a business that has fewer than 4 stars. AND have current reviews. OK, we all need to get busy.
