Your business, the products that you produce and the services that you provide to the world are searched for everyday online. Just go to Google, type in your business category and your city—like “Dentist Reno”, “Chiropractor Sparks”, “Attorney Carson City” and you will find several results for that. Hundreds or even thousands of people are searching for them every single month online as people rarely use the Yellow Pages anymore.
Would you buy a product or service that has bad ratings and reviews? Suppose that there are two identical products: One has 10 good reviews and the other one has 3 good reviews and 1 bad review. Which one are you going to buy? Obviously the one that has 10 good reviews.
Why is that? Because we want to have a great experience and we’re looking to make sure that a company is consistent with delivering that experience or that product or service. This is what consumers, individuals, and companies do every single day. They go online looking to find the most reputable company to do business with, and only one bad review can send the customer from your website or your listing online to someone else's. That’s the difference between your phone ringing or your competition's phone ringing.
This is an invitation to attend a live seminar that will help businesses who are deeply concerned about or have received negative reviews.
Most businesses do not know what to do when they see negative reviews whether its unethical competitors, angry ex-employees or irrational customers who write them. They might even be true, but the typical response from the business owner is similar to the grief cycle:
- First they are shocked that anyone would write such a thing and deny its truthfulness.
- They get angry and frustrated seeing such embarrassing statements.
- They may get depressed and lose energy or become overly confrontational.
- Finally they just accept it hoping that people will see that it's "only one review" or "there are some real idiots out there, no one is going to believe that anyway."
The problem is that research has shown that 72% of consumers will believe anything written in an online review! (Nielson Corp.) But it doesn't have to be that way! It can be fixed and you can show the world who you really are, with a great reputation people can trust!
