How To Build Online Reviews For Sites Like Google Plus, Yelp, Angie’s List and TripAdvisor
Anyone who has been in the local SEO business long knows how absolutely critical reviews are. If you have 30 reviews on Google maps and your next closest competitor has eight… guess who is going to get all of the calls?
We place a lot of emphasis on building real, safe reviews for our clients. Quite simply, we have found that if we can get the review count up, our clients get tons of leads as a result of our services and they don’t cancel on us. We like that J
Review building used to be a really arduous process for us… reaching out to past customers of our clients and begging that they leave a review. It was a difficult manual process to figure out if they had a Google+ account to write a review on maps, or a Yelp account to write a review there, etc.
Finally, we found a product that automates this process and is extremely effective. We highly recommend a company called ReviewShepherd for online review building. You just upload your online profiles for Google+, Angie’s List, TripAdvisor, Yelp or other online profiles that you want to build reviews for, upload email addresses for your past customers and they take care of the rest.
It’s a huge relief and it saves our company lots of time, money and frustration. It’s a great product for both agencies and small local businesses.
