We talk all the time about what you, as a business owner, should be doing to get more eyeballs to your website and more clients to your business. You need SEO rich content. You need up-to-date content. You need lead generation strategies. You need customer reviews and on and on and on.
Well, they’re as powerful as ever. And, in fact, it’s easy to use them to your advantage. Did you know that 80% of the people coming to your website go directly to your reviews page once they have landed on your site?
Your reviews page is THE SECOND MOST VIEWED PAGE ON YOUR SITE (with the exception of advertised pages). So yeah, they’re important. But what are they?
You’re probably thinking “What’s the difference between a review and a testimonial? They’re the same, right?” Well, they’re not.
Testimonials are often solicited by a business from clients they know will be generous. Reviews are left beyond a business’ control. Reviews are real.
Reviews build trust with potential leads and they can demonstrate your expertise firsthand. They make potential leads feel comfortable spending money with your business and they boost conversion rates because they provide you with a proven track record.
They are essential to any successful business. But just having them isn’t enough.
If your business currently uses a NextRep Website, you have a head start because reviews from your clients are given a prominent position on all of our themes.
We gather reviews from all corners of your business’ reach, including multiple social media platforms, and we bring them together into one digestible page.
Like any other page on your site, visitors aren’t going to spend hours flipping through word after word. They want the gist and they want it fast.
Here’s what we suggest:
Throughout your website, we talk a lot about what makes your business great and what you can offer your clients that other people can’t. Your reviews page is the only chance you have to show a lead how great everyone else thinks your business is. Don’t let it go to waste.
