In today’s on-line environment, your business reputation directly impacts your sales.
When most people think about reputation, they think about reviews. This is for good reason, as a reported 88% of consumers say that they trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations. Positive reviews produce an average 18% uptick in sales. This is a meaningful uptick and it is within your power to control and influence your business reputation.
While reviews determine who does business with you, they also impact where your business shows up in search results. Google cares about giving the best answers to searchers. The best answers means providing quality companies first. Sure, distance and relevance are important, but equally as important is your business reputation. The number and quality of your business reviews determine your search positioning.

A business that takes the time to respond reviews will generate a .53 higher star rating on average. Responding to reviews also sends an important message to customers about the type of business that you are – one that cares.
Reviews are not the only important aspect of reputation. Managing your brand’s reputation starts with providing a great client experience. Client experience starts with your online business information. The accuracy and reliability of this information across dozens of search services on maps, apps, search engines, and voice assistants is very important in setting proper expectations with your customer and starting their experience with your company on the right foot. This can include information like offers, frequently asked questions, events, quality images and accurate driving directions.
