There is a unique opportunity that exists for local businesses right now.
90% of customers read reviews before making a purchase and over half (55%) of local businesses don’t think reviews are very important.
This disconnect draws to focus two critical points:
First, reviews have moved from nice-to-have to make-or-break in whether a consumer chooses to engage with a local business.
63.6% of consumers now visit Google to check reviews of a local business and 28% of consumers say they have looked up a business’s reviews while standing or being parked right outside deciding if they should go in.
Second, local businesses that proactively focus on reviews are the ones who are being considered in the purchase decision, the ones with the competitive advantage over their local niche and the ones making more money.
The truth is this: Consumers now go online before buying offline and reviews are now a fundamental requirement in winning today’s consumers.
There are three ways local businesses can jump on this opportunity.
First – they can invest their time, effort, and energy in creating a systematic, scalable review collection strategy that is geared towards revenue generation.
Second – they can hire someone to figure this out.
Third – they can use software that does it for them. Most of the software out there has been designed specifically for eCommerce.
Local business isn’t eCommerce. Local businesses shouldn’t have to overpay ($500 per business location) for bloated, complex software that wasn’t made for them.
Goodreviews was made for local businesses.
It was made to amplify the revenue impact of reviews. Our customers see an average uplift of 45% in onsite conversion rate.
It was made to grow your review profile. Our customers see an average uplift of 121% in reviews collected. And for every one-star increase in average rating, there is a 5-7% increase in revenue.
It was made to be affordable to all. We are 95% cheaper than our competitors at $49.99.
So our truth? We made something better, faster, and cheaper with a revenue-centric approach.
