Rize Reviews knows better than anyone — Reputation Matters™. These days we are collectively spending more time online than ever before. With most of the world enduring a lockdown period, your potential customers have more than enough time — and ample opportunity — to peek into your online presence. What do you think they’re finding?
It can’t be denied, your digital presence is dramatically impacted by your online reputation. The latter consists of all your business reviews across various platforms, testimonials on your website and your responses to public reviews. With each review, comment or engagement, you are further cementing how your brand interacts with its consumers, potential customers and the greater public.
Online reputation management has been challenging during this COVID-19 pandemic, especially if you consider the slowed publication of Google reviews over the past month. Thankfully, as discussions regarding the reopening of the economy continue on a national scale, business owners can see a figurative light at the end of the tunnel and it seems Google is following suit. Experts are seeing Google reviews slowly creep into publication, indicating Google may soon be conducting business as usual.
We at Rize are optimistic that most business owners will emerge from this challenging and unprecedented time more resilient and adaptive than ever before. It’s likely that business owners across industries will be better equipped with more tools in their arsenal to tackle any future economic challenges.
Rize is made up of a team of professionals who understand that focusing on new business development endeavours right now is a tall ask. So, in solidarity with fellow small business owners feeling the pressure, Rize is offering a free 30-day trial of Rize Reviews services during the COVID-19 crisis. This offer is only available for a limited time.
“Rize as a small business itself understands the troubles of maintaining review management as we continue to provide alternative methods on helping our clients receive reviews due to the majority using Google My Business to obtain those reviews,” said Marisa Russell, customer support specialist at Rize Reviews.
“Review management is beneficial during this time because although as a country we are facing a pandemic, more and more people are at home online reviewing, searching for essential services and products to purchase along with new hobbies to keep them busy. Those people want reliable, trustworthy and relatable companies to spend their now not-so-reliable income on. They want the reputation to match the value of the product. Now is the time to capitalize and build your brand and reputation while you have all eyes online.”
Tim Clarke, senior reputation manager at Rize Reviews, echoed similar sentiments and touched on the opportunity to be found in these uncertain times.
“As a growing small business, Rize Reviews understands how devastating this crisis has been for so many industries,” Clarke said. “Standing out with a large number of positive online reviews is a great way to overcome declining sales and beat the fiercer levels of competition.”
Rize extends a sincere thanks to all of our clients for entrusting us with their reputation management needs, year round and especially right now. We hope to grow the Rize Reviews client family with this free trial offering. While we don’t know what to expect after COVID-19, we do hope we come out of this global crisis stronger and more unified as small business owners.
