Below we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions about Review Biz and the Review Biz widget that sits on your website. If you have a question that we haven’t answered, please get in touch.
The evidence as to the importance and power of reviews is overwhelming (see details in both The Facts and Benefits sections on our home page. These days, the marketing blurb isn’t enough. As well as reading what a company says about their product or service, we also want to know what their customers say. Credible customer reviews tell the real story and bring a brand to life generating many benefits for both you and your business.
We say that Review Biz unleashes the power of your reviews for lots of reasons. Here are some of them:
- When reviews are given via a third party like Review Biz they have much more credibility and influence.
- Most customers will happily give a review when asked and with the simple Review Biz widget on your website you make it easy for them to provide one.
- Once someone has given a review they are much more likely to mention your business to others.
- Asking for reviews can be difficult and time-consuming but Review Biz makes it easy.
- Review Biz promotes your reviews on Facebook and Twitter, helping to increase the value of positive feedback and drive new visitors to your site.
- Reviews are considered as ‘outstanding content by the Search Engines, hence your SEO will be greatly enhanced.
Beyond the many benefits already outlined, we know from feedback that our customers find Review Biz makes an extraordinary difference.
On average, our customers report that they are receiving four times as many reviews as they did before. This gives them vital information they can use to boost their profile, enhance their reputation and motivate their teams.
We also know that website ‘dwell time’ increases as a result of having Review Biz on it. That means people are spending longer on your website and engaging with your company more fully both emotionally and practically.
Having a strong portfolio of reviews is useful in the long term too. It will boost the level of goodwill in your business, a vital component in the valuation if you’re thinking of selling it.
We don’t believe there is a like for like comparison available because we are the only service that offers full independent validation and moderation, meaning your reviews will be so much more powerful in terms of credibility and influence as well as protecting you from unfair and malicious content (see our validation and moderation process.
Also, unlike other options we are an Independent facilitator who by placing the widget on your site ensure that the focus is entirely where is should be, on you and your business. It’s about your brand not ours.
