Customers Trust Local Reviews

The best strategy, according to study completed by Stanford University, will include collecting both more reviews than your competitors and collecting more 4 and 5-star reviews as well. But more and better reviews is not the end-game. You also need to partner with a company that can promote those reviews in more places that count, like Google My Business, Facebook, Yelp, TripAdvisor, and more. Local Reviews answers all the concerns mentioned in the Stanford University study.

Your reputation matters—because people do business with companies they trust.

Local Reviews can help you collect more quality reviews in more places to drive more sales for your local business.
