Real Time Review Monitoring
Review Response Posting
If you are a service company you will live and die by your reviews. Read your reviews on the Internet. Start by searching for "yourCompanyName reviews" and see what comes up. If nothing comes up, you have a problem. Over 80% of prospects will read reviews before calling you. No reviews, no calls. Read the reviews and ask yourself if you would call this company? Remember that you have a pile of potential service providers and their phone numbers staring you in the face as you are reading your reviews. Ask yourself again, would I call this company?
Look and see where your reviews come from. Some review sites like Customer Lobby, Thumbtack, or Trust Pilot may not be recognized and prospects may not trust what is said. Look for reviews listed on the major review sites: Better Business Bureau, FaceBook, Google, and Yelp.

If you don't have any bad reviews you have not been in business long enough. If you don't have any bad reviews, most likely prospects are going to be wary of the reviews you do have. Bad reviews are good for your business, because truly no one is happy all of the time, people are bound to be displeased at some point. The way you respond to the review says as much as the review does. It is important to not let the reviewer define your business based on what other people say. It is an opportunity to reshape their review in a way that manages a reader's interpretation of the situation. It is a good idea to respond to bad reviews immediately and in a way that shifts the readers interpretation of the situation. Remember not to react in anger or frustration, instead looking to bring an explanation and if possible an amicable resolution. The only thing you cannot fix is deliberately bad service. If bilking customers is your sales and service strategy you should plan to be out of business in the near future.
