Most small businesses don’t realize customers can’t find them on the web, and that’s a huge problem…
According to the an SEO industry leader, BrightLocal, A 2018 Local Consumer Review Survey brought out some eye-opening statistics:
- 86 % of consumers read reviews for local businesses.
- Consumers read about 10 online reviews before choosing and trusting a local business.
- 57 % of consumers would only visit or use a business if it has 4 or more stars.
Customer reviews are becoming more and more vital for local businesses. Online stores have really turned the tide on how consumers do their shopping everywhere, including local service businesses. Daily we use google maps, Yelp, etc, to make decisions before visiting a business. People trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations.
But, why are reviews also so important for businesses? Well, they play a crucial role in determining the success of the business. Getting positive information from happy customers will signal to search engines like Google that your a legitimate and trustworthy site. Once they see that, they will begin to rank the business higher in the customer search results. Which also makes the business more credible and easily accessible for consumers.
