The Power of Having Reviews on Top Sites

Searching for and seeing your business through the eyes of a new customer is a key online reputation management strategy. Search keywords that someone might use to find your business or organization and remember – a positive online reputation is insurance for any advertising dollars you’re spending. Monitor, improving and managing your social media and review sites can be a full time job – – which is why thousands of businesses trust us to do it for them.
Pay Attention to Yelp & Use Check-In Offers to Get More Reviews
Yelp – love them or hate them – they’re here to stay and their reviews are seen by millions of people. Apple even showcases Yelp ratings in its Maps app, so when Apple users are looking for directions to your business or organization they’ll also see your Yelp rating. Here’s another pro tip: use check-in offers to get your positive Yelp reviews to “stick”. Digital Air Strike offers enhanced Yelp profiles which block competitor ads from your page and highlight your business better.
Knowing the Reputation Rules
No business likes getting bad reviews but getting more positive reviews will “push” the negative ones down. But the positive ones need to be legitimate. In fact, it is illegal to offer freebies or any kind of currency for reviews. Another temptation may be to create fake customers to leave fake reviews or hiring a company that offers this service. Review sites like Yelp are too smart for such tactics and these practices will come back to hurt your business. Our award-winning Review Surge technology helps businesses generate 9x more positive reviews on top review sites.
