Customer Retention is crucial - how is your online appearance? Our platform is the perfect tool for all sized businesses for review management, to increase customer retention, improve their online appearance, and make sure their business isn't wasting money on ads. How do we do this?
Online Appearance & Review Management
Your brand, and customer perception of that brand, is the most importance asset your business owns! Positive perception = increase customer retention. A ton of companies don’t even realize when a new review has been posted about their company, or lack the resources to engage previous customers to increase the value of their brand. Word of mouth is the best way to grow a business because it’s completely free marketing from a trusted source – someone who’s already used your business!
We look at customer’s as the number one source of new clients and customers. Its infinitely more important to retain customers than it is to find new ones. The return on investment is exponentially higher. If all of your customers at some point over the next year influenced a friend to engage your firm – you’ve doubled in size without spending a dime! Retaining customer’s can be hard for firms, though, so we provide insight and resources to our team to do it on your behalf!

Reputation Management and Customer Retention FAQ
What is reputation management?
The reputation of a business is both what they say about themselves and what others say about them. Managing reputation is nothing new; what’s new is how the internet and social media have changed the way businesses are being defined and how fast their reputations spread.
What is presence management?
Presence management is making sure that customers can find the right information about a business online. Correct and consistent listings across directories, review sites and social networks is crucial.
Why is online review monitoring important?
With over 33 million local reviews on Yelp alone, it’s clear that customers are sharing their opinions online. Seventy-two percent of consumers say they trust online reviews as much as personal referrals, so whether it’s a testimonial, a detailed article on someone’s blog, or an offhand comment on Twitter, people are now chatting 24/7—and local business owners need to be paying attention.
Why is it important to respond to reviews, both positive and negative?
Customers appreciate when they feel their voice is heard, whether the reviews are positive or negative. Responding to a negative review can help your business understand what went wrong and how to fix it.
Can negative reviews just be deleted?
Negative reviews cannot be deleted off of 3rd party sites. However, reviews that violate that site’s terms and conditions can be flagged. If the listing site agrees with the request, they will remove the review.
