Pizza Marketplace recently posted an infographic from websitebuilder.com about Online Reviews.

The undeniable truth is this: Online reviews really can make or break your business. Are you managing  your online reputation on a daily and weekly basis? Here’s why you should.

  • Consumer reviews are trusted nearly 12x more than information from a company
  • Reviews contribute 10% to Google SERPs (Search Engine Results Page)
  • For every boost in a star a business gets, there will be a 5-9% increase in revenue
  • 86% of people will hesitate to purchase from a company that has negative reviews.
  • 61% of consumers have read online reviews about a restaurant
  • 77.9% of consumers think other travelers’ online reviews are extremely or very important for deciding where to stay

Top industries impacted by online reviews

  • Doctors’ offices / Hospitals
  • Hotels / Travel
  • Restaurants
  • Hair Salons
  • Jobs

According to the study, when a business responds to a negative review on social media and online ratings sites, a third of customers either deleted their original negative review or replaced it with a positive one. Many went on to become loyal customers, making future purchases.

No matter your industry, there are multiple sites where people can and DO leave reviews. Purplegator has a product called Gator Local that helps you to manage your reviews on many platforms. Gator Local allows you to take action: thank people for positive reviews and to handle negative reviews quickly.
