For local businesses, the name of the game is online review management. When a potential customer reads a positive review, it’s as if someone said to them,

“Hey, you can trust this business because I do.”

It reassures them that by choosing your business, they’re making the right call.
But if your business lacks positive reviews, customers won’t be as trusting. You can’t turn a blind eye to your online reputation. One negative review could be seen by dozens of potential customers. Consumers trust them just as much as word-of-mouth recommendations.

It’s clear that business reviews are influencing your customers. What can you do to manage your online reputation? You’re looking for a way to keep a watchful eye on your reputation (without constantly refreshing Google).
Take hold of your online reputation with Rep.co. With our review monitoring software,
you’ll always be in the loop about what customers are saying about your business.
Here’s how your business can benefit from monitoring online reviews:

What Is Review Monitoring?


Every day, consumers write thousands of online reviews
on popular review sites. How do you know if customers are reviewing your business? You could check those
sites each day.

But for most business owners, this approach isn’t feasible (especially if you have several locations or companies).
On top of that, you need to monitor reviews on multiple websites, including Google, Facebook, and Yelp.

Here’s a better idea:

Use Rep.co to monitor incoming reviews. Our software notifies
you each time you get a new review.

You can choose whether you get notified about positive, negative,
or all new reviews.
Once you’ve set up your campaign, all your new and existing reviews will be synced to the “Reviews” tab. 

This section gives you an overview of all your feedback.
With Rep.co, you can keep your finger on the pulse of reputation management.

Never miss out on the chance to rectify negative reviews or capitalize
on positive ones.

Why your business needs Online Review Monitoring

You know that other marketing methods have their advantages, from the content on your website to the newsletter you send out each week. But online reviews are a step above the rest; they’re trusted far more than conventional advertisements.

Reviews are an unbiased way for customers to evaluate the quality of your products and/or services.

Here’s how your business can benefit from review monitoring:

  • Appease dissatisfied customers

    Despite your best efforts, a customer may have a negative experience with your business. While you can’t please everybody, you can do your best to resolve the situation.

    When you respond appropriately to negative reviews, it shows customers that you care about their feedback. It demonstrates that you value the customer experience, and you’re always working toward improving it. Those who read your response will see that your business sees the value in righting wrongs.

    And who knows? After reading your response or speaking with you directly, that customer might decide to alter their initial review.

How to respond to online reviews

If you aren’t responding to business reviews, you’re missing out on a golden marketing opportunity. By engaging with feedback, you can help establish your brand, build a stronger online presence, and manage your reputation.

The first rule about responding to reviews is this: Respond quickly. Not just to positive reviews but to negative reviews, too. The next step is figuring out how to respond to reviews. If you’re trying to outrank local businesses, a 5-star rating and plenty of positive reviews will help you do so.

Reviews show search engine algorithms that your business is trustworthy, credible, and authentic. Positive reviews play an integral part in any successful SEO strategy. With online reputation management, you can outrank your competitors. You don’t want people to think you’re ignoring their reviews. Responding to them is the perfect way to show them that you value what they think.

Not sure how to respond? We’ve put together a few tips to help you out. You can change your
approach based on how positive or negative the review is. Here’s our advice:

Responding to Positive reviews
Responding to Negative reviews
You’ve just received a glowing review from a happy customer - great! Now’s your chance to make the most of that review by responding to it. Your review response helps establish a connection with that customer, encouraging them to keep coming back. Clients see that you’re more than a business owner - you’re a person, too. It boosts brand loyalty and customer retention rates.

If you receive a negative review, your first instinct might be to ignore it. Criticism can be hard to hear. But ignoring those posts can be damaging to your reputation. Instead, show others that you’re willing to go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction, whether it’s by reaching out to learn about the experience or offering a discount/refund to rectify the situation.

Top off your message with a promotional message; you could mention an upcoming sale or your latest product that you
think the reviewer may enjoy.

Generate More Online Reviews

You know that review monitoring is important. But what if you aren’t getting any online reviews in the first place? What can you do to encourage your customers to leave feedback?

Rep.co is a great way to get started.

Our review generation software is loaded with features designed to streamline and simplify the review generation process. Automate the process of requesting reviews with custom emails, SMS messages, and feedback templates. Once you’ve set up your campaign, all that’s left to do is sit back while the reviews pour in.

But before you begin your review campaign, a quick disclaimer: Make sure you aren’t violating the terms of service of your chosen review platform. For example, Google states that review-gating violates their guidelines. This refers to the practice of prohibiting/discouraging negative reviews or only reaching out for positive reviews.
In addition, you cannot incentivize positive reviews by giving your customers
money or discounts in return.
