Customer Review System

Automate Your Effort to Acquire, Monitor and Amplify Customer Reviews

What is a Customer Review ?

Most commerce-related word of mouth today takes the form of customer reviews on sites like Yelp, Google, Facebook, Yelp and Angie’s List. Online customer reviews are arguably the greatest in attracting and retaining customers for small and local businesses today. Reviews determine how people perceive a business, whether or not they would buy from it, even its visibility in search engines. If you handle marketing for a small or local business, you need to grab this bull by the horns. Right now.

Customer Reviews as a Marketing Channel

You can turn customer reviews into your new favorite marketing channel and score big wins for your company or your clients. To some degree, winning customer reviews is a numbers game, but you can improve your numbers.

Myth: Only unhappy customers write Reviews

Truth: Most reviews are positive, but negative reviews are over-represented.
And as it turns out, the vast majority of online reviews are positive across products, services, industries and online communities. Still, negative reviews are over-represented on review sites thanks to the so-called “adverse reviewer problem”—the truism that disgruntled customers have a greater-than-normal incentive to bad-mouth a business online. However, there’s opportunity to unlock more of the positive sentiment customers hold back and get them sharing the good word about any brand.

Why Customer Reviews matter ?

You can find hundreds of recent stats and studies that confirm the insanely influential role online reviews play in getting customers to buy or try new products, services, and local businesses. Customers don’t trust what you say about your product or service, and they really don’t trust your ads. Instead, they trust other people like themselves. Because customer reviews are perceived as being written by regular folks with no agenda, people trust them—even more than they trust expert opinions. A 2011 study found that 55% of consumers felt that the opinions of “people like me” had the greatest impact on their buying decisions.

Almost everyone reads Reviews

Consumers today have access to a wide range of information and opinion from independent third parties about products, services, companies and individuals. We use these data sources to discover, evaluate and compare the things we’re interested in. Marketers sometimes call this burgeoning phenomenon of online opinion-sharing “electronic Word of Mouth” (eWOM), a term that encompasses online reviews, social media and discussion forums.

Myth: The more positive the Review, the better

Truth: The more Substantive the Review, the Better
Positive reviews are good, but substantive reviews are better. To be meaningful—that is, to pique interests and sway purchasing decisions—a review should relate how real customers experienced a product or service so that other real customers can decide whether that product or service is a good t for them, too.

Online customer reviews are arguably the greatest in attracting and retaining customers for small and local businesses today.
