The Importance of Online Reviews
The title may say it all, but this blog will focus on exactly why online reviews are so important and why we appreciate every one.
Years ago, word of mouth was the only way to get feedback or a recommendation for a product, service, or company. You relied on your friends, family, and neighbors to help you decide based on their personal experience. Today, online reviews are the new word of mouth and the once, small group of reliable people giving you suggestions has grown to thousands.
According to BrightLocal, “87% of consumers read online reviews for local businesses in 2020 – up from 81% in 2019.” How many times have you Googled or visited a company’s website to see if you want to use their services or buy their product, but first checked the reviews? The more reviews, the more you may be apt to use a service or purchase an item. After all, if that many people are satisfied, you will be too! You can also look to social media for help when trying to decide. You can post a request for suggestions and your list of friends and acquaintances can chime in whereas, without this source, you may be limited to only a few opinions.
Online reviews are valuable to consumers, but they’re valuable to companies as well. Forbes Magazine’s article,Online Reviews And Their Impact on The Bottom Line states that“online reviews lead to increased visibility to customers, especially within search results”. Simply put, more reviews help businesses grow.
