How Small Businesses Can Benefit from
Great Online Reviews
As a small business, you already know how important it is for people to say great things about you, whether online or face-to-face with their friends and family. Small businesses tend to get a lot of their patronage that way, through word-of-mouth.
While word-of-mouth remains the best way to gain the attention of new consumers or patrons, it’s shifting more and more from face-to-face to the online community. A majority of people now are researching businesses online before making the decision to visit them. So, if you don’t have great reviews, you’ll be overlooked.
According to research, an astounding 86% of consumers read reviews for local businesses (including 95% of people aged 18-34). That’s huge! Clearly, you can’t afford to ignore your online reviews any longer.
The Best Online Review Sites for Local Businesses
While there are a large number of review sites (and extra that are specifically for niches like restaurants, hotels, and home services), there are a few top ones that are looked at more than the others. If you’re a local business, you should work on your reviews for:
- Any others that appear on the first page of search results for your type of business
While having reviews everywhere possible is great, it’s best to focus on the big ones (at least, at first). These are the ones that the majority of people will use to make their judgements about your business before visiting.
How Small Business Should Ask for Feedback
It can be a really daunting process to get more reviews. You don’t want to feel like you’re bothering people, but at the same time, you really need those reviews! Here are a couple pretty easy ideas.
Train Employees to Ask
You can easily let employees know when and how to ask a satisfied customer or patron for a review. It can be during a checkout process, after a service is complete, or whatever works for your unique business. To really help those employees get used to making the ask, you can implement a reward system of sorts. Whoever brings in the most positive reviews gets a gift card (or something similar)!
To make this process even simpler for employees, you can print out some business-type cards to hand out to patrons/customers with information on how and where to leave a review.
Set up an Email Drip Campaign
This sounds complicated, but with a tool like Rize, it’s pretty much “set it and forget it”. If you gather email addresses, you can load them into an email campaign that’s set up to send out a series of emails asking for feedback. If a customer doesn’t respond to the first one, you can have another one send out automatically in a few days or so. If there’s no response again, you might want to try a third reminder.
Within the email, there’s an easy feedback system. If someone indicates that they were happy with your business, they’ll be directed straight to your review sites of choice to leave their review. It’s much easier than you think!
