Like it or not; agree or not we need search engines [Google] in order to bring in customers and enquiries into our businesses. Huge sums of revenues are spent on Google Adwords and other forms of paid advertising to enable business websites to show up within Google’s Search Results for specific Keywords. Now – to the title of this post …

“Google Reviews [Provide] Free Advertising”

… refers to those customer Business Reviews that are left directly on the Business Google Pages that show up in the search engines. In fact the display of positive reviews in Google that are read by customers serve to provide prospective customers with a real good overview of the excellence [assuming we deliver high quality products / services] of the company in question.

When we consider how many times a day we ourselves as consumers or information seekers turn to Google in order to assist us in making purchase decisions, we only need to relate this to those who could be our customers if they were to view those positive reviews left by satisfied customers which serve to act as free advertising for our company. Whilst businesses are of course looking to focus their energies on providing the best services that they can to their customers – it is most often the case that they do not [as a matter of process] routinely ask customer to leave reviews for the company on their Google Maps Listings Page.

So how do we go about systematically increasing those Google Business Reviews that are becoming more and more important in terms of the execution of Digital Marketing strategies ? Well, looking at the typical customer transaction – the best time would seem to be post sale when the customer has just experienced excellence in customer service. And; with the widespread use of mobile phones that we tend to carry with us most of the times – making use of this medium to increase Customer Feedback via Google Business Reviews would seem the best way to achieve the desired objective.

The BestBusinessReviews.co.uk platform seems to tick all of the boxes that any business owner could ever want in terms of seamlessly being able collect those desired comments from customers. Consider being able to make an overview of all of the comments and reviews that have been left by satisfied clients over the period of month ! With the monthly reporting feature of the BestBusinessReviews.co.uk system …

… Business Operators Are Now Able To Use Google Reviews, Customer Feedback & Social Media Interaction For Business Strategy Planning Purposes …

… this can only serve to provide a competitive advantage for any company or collecting of franchise outlets.

So how does the system work ? It is quite simple; the customer facing representative simply asks the customer if they are happy to leave a review. Next they enter the customer’s mobile phone number [and email address if available] into the dedicated platform and the cloud based service takes over. The customer is taken through a series of questions which first asks for Customer Feedback and then to leave a Google Review on the Business Page that is specific to the location of the company. This means that if there is a series of locations of any company then there will need to be reviews left for each location that will be shown up on relevant Google Reviews pages.

So what can the business owner who wants more exposure within the search engines do without spending 1000s on paid advertising in order to put themselves in front of customers ? Well customer reviews on any company’s google page actually provides free advertising and the use of the BestBusinessReviews.co.uk platform is a mere fraction of paid advertising campaigns [which we have nothing against and think are entirely necessary as a key component of any digital marketing strategy plan].

If you are looking to systematically increase the number of ratings on the company’s Google Maps Listings Page; then get in touch with us so we can get you setup [normally within 7 working days] and start to experience the positive effects on your business that displaying customer feedback can provide.

We know that traditionally Retirement & Care Homes may not extensively engage in outbound Digital Marketing; i.e. strategically identifying the key target market customers. Remembering that for certain markets we target influencers or decision makers and not necessarily the users of the particular product or service. In the case of care home and retirement residences – the key messages may be directed towards family members who themselves will have a specific profile which will be different to those who will eventually make use of the care home services.

Enhance Reputation Of Care Homes

If any residential care home were to make use of the BestBusinessReviews.co.uk on a consistent process driven manner; the reputation of the organisation within the Search Engines will be seen to rise over time as satisfied visitors over time leave positive google reviews simply as a result of being given a system through which to do so.

Care Home Have Few Google Reviews

It is astonishing to see certain care home establishments that have been in business for years and yet have only a handful of positive google reviews listed within the search engines. Yet when bad publicity arises in those rare cases, the organisation is normally in the spotlight for the wrong reasons and often on a national basis.

Process Driven Google Reviews Collection

Now; by providing family members, friends & other visitors with a defined process & system for leaving positive Google Reviews, customer feedback and social media sharing will serve to build the reputation of the organisation.

It is important at this time to note that retirement & Care Homes are ranked and displayed with their Google Reviews just just like any other business. Now think of the 100s of [satisfied] visitors happy with the professional staff from the care home on a consistent basis – yet their positive experiences are not reflected within the specific care homes Search Engine Listings.

Making use of the BestBusinessReviews.co.uk platform which we consider to be the Complete Strategic Company Google Reviews, Client Feedback, Search Engine Marketing & Social Media Interaction Platform will [as alluded to above] positively affect the reputation of Residential Care & Retirement Homes within the specific care home’s local search region within the Search Engines [as Google continues to place more importance on customer reviews within the search engine marketing results] and; with our sharing function the platform will widen the Social Media Footprint of the organisation.

Care Home Management Customer Feedback

The system is designed so that disgruntled visitors are able to electronically give feedback to the residential care home, this valuable [sometimes criticism] feedback can be passed through to customer support personnel [as configured during the setup phase] so direct contact can be made with the individuals for relevant resolution steps to me taken

Contact us at BestBusinessReviews.co.uk right now in order to learn more and to get the dedicated portals setup with the outcome of boosting your residential care home’s reputation and boosting its social media influence.

Companies with certain levels of revenues are seen to continually run paid advertising and marketing campaigns that bring in new customers and revenues; this in turn generates adequate levels of funds to allow for more paid campaigns. The process continues and we see that organisations of a certain size and revenue generation will be seen to be the dominant players within a particular marketing sector with smaller organisations with excellent quality products and services not able to get a foot hold; that is due to the fact that they may not have the 1000s of GBP or $US that is necessary to develop and execute ongoing digital marketing campaigns. Now while we do advocate that companies engage in paid social media marketing and search engine optimization for business campaigns [and we do offer such services] – at times certain organisation’s means of competing may be in terms of utilising google business reviews from a strategic marketing perspective.

All businesses need to come up with some sort of advertising, marketing and promotion – this is a given and a must and is of course totally necessary just so that the customers who they are targeting can get to learn about the services that are being offered into the market place. With the vast majority of customers turning to the world’s most used search engine to seek out their desired products and services – Google Business Reviews present a viable method for organisations to be able to compete with the sometimes 10s of 1000s [GPB or $US] being spent.

Now, making sure that the positive experiences of the satisfied customers of your company are there for all to see by making sure those Google Business Reviews are displayed prominently will serve to bring in new customers who otherwise would have turned to those with their paid advertisements being displayed; for our insignificant monthly fee – we here at BestBusinessReviews.co.uk are providing the platform, systems, structure and processes to enable companies to actually get Free advertising via the display of Google Business Reviews that show up directly with those ads that others have paid 1000s [GPB or $US] for.

For those looking to expand the reach of their online reputation; looking to reach those customers using the search engines looking for products and services that are being offered. Here is a robust Strategic Client Company Google Reviews & Social Media Interaction Platform that can be put to use to not only consistently collect Google Business Reviews but also to share customers positive experiences which in turn boosts the company’s reputation and search engine marketing positioning results.

We encourage you as the marketer, business owner or direct to as a matter of process start to collect those genuine Google Customer Ratings & Reviews which can be used to bring in new customers and boost sales & revenues. The BestBusinessReviews.co.uk platform is search engine marketing friendly; and is simple to integrate within your business as only a dedicated URL is needed in order to enter the customer’s SMS number.  At the time of writing we are offering unlimited social media shares and customer reviews and ratings – so get in touch today; we will have your system setup with haste.

It is certainly not too difficult for anyone to consider the number of customers that a typical Property Management or Real Estate Agent company dealing with Buy To Let, Rent To Rent, Rent To Own, Buy To Own and other categories of property customers sees in a given week. Next consider if every customer was asked to …

  • a) Leave feedback on their experience with the property management company
  • b) Write a positive star rating Google Review
  • c) Share their experiences with the Estate Agency company on their Social Media account

… it does not take too much imagination to see how consistent feedback, reviews and sharing would have a positive effect on their Real Estate Search Engine & Social Media Marketing performance results. Also the Estate Agency Google Business Reviews Platform through which the feedback is funneled into the property management company could be readily used for ongoing business strategy planning purposes.

Potential property investing, rental or purchasing customers that will make use of the various aspects of a Real Estate Agency or Property Management Company are utilising the search engines whereby they will most certainly come across Google Business Reviews; the data shows that decisions whether or not to do business with a particular company do get heavily influenced by the experiences that potential read that have been left by previous customers.

Also; there is an aspect of relevancy that comes into play; consider the following : One company is seen to have a stream of positive reviews week in and week out until the present date; in contrast to another whose last review was left 6 months ago. Whilst we cannot speak in 100% certain terms as to how Google will treat either company in terms of their SERPs …

… [Search Engine Ranking Positionings] we do know that it is likely that the company with more relevant, recent reviews will be ranked higher for any given estate agency or property management search terms [such as “estate agent london” or “property management company new york” or “best buy to let company in Manchester UK”.

We have been speaking about search but also Social Media Marketing comes into play for the Estate Agency as within the eco system of Social Media people’s buying decisions are seen to be entirely made on that which those in their group have experienced and speak about favourably.

This is of course on of the features of the complete Strategic Client To Company Google Reviews, Client Feedback, Market Research & Social Media Interaction Platform which provides users with the facility to share their positive property purchase or letting experiences directly within their own social media profile. This serves to have the effect of magnifying the social media digital marketing footprint of the Real Estate Agency thereby bringing in new customers, internet traffic which in turn will translate into sales and increased revenues.

As the world of Digital Marketing Strategy Development & Execution continues to expand and modify – search and social will continue to play a major role in how businesses not only get found but also on how they are judged by potential clients. Therefore the more that any property management or real estate agency company can learn about their customers; with those positive experiences being reflected within the search engines – the utilisation of the customer feedback for further business strategy plans will serve to assist one property company to gain a competitive advantage over the other.

Building companies [just like the properties that they perform their services for] come in all shapes and sizes from small building one man operations to large companies that operate fleets of vehicles with their staff being sent out on a daily basis to go to places of residence of maybe business dwellings and office spaces. One thing that can be stated is that home owners turn to the search engines to look for builders to perform certain tasks within their properties.

The range of building tasks are far and wide and include …

  • Plumbing [from a leaking tap to a full central heating installation]
  • Roofing [replacing roof tiles to full felting renewal]
  • Tiling [replacing a few tiles over the kitchen sink to complete bathroom wall and floors]
  • Window Glazing [replacing a sealed double glazing unit to a full house window installation]
  • Scaffolding [for painting the front of a house to a full loft installation operation]

… and the list could go on and on.

Now from a strategic business perspective, just imagine that for each successful job that was performed the customer was asked to leave a review that would appear in Google’s search engine rankings ? As is the case most building companies and self employed individuals leave it to chance for a review to be left; often stating that “we get most of our work from referrals” – this may be true but they for sure will be missing out on the vast amount of business that could be coming their way if those who were searching in google for say a plumber would come across a string of glowing reviews for a job well done and how the plumber cleaned up and was respectful and courteous.

What we are referring to here is for building and construction companies such as

scaffolding providers, central heating installers, flat roof extension repairers, bathroom and kitchen tilers, fitted kitchen installers, driveway paving contractors, double glazing installers

and for all services that fit within the building trade to think about how they can consistently as a matter of process [that means not leaving it to chance for the customer to be satisfied and then to go to google to leave a positive review and star rating] to ask the customer to leave their own client feedback as well as star rating google review.

Now, the BestBusinessReviews system is a service that has been developed by Capid Houser with the understanding of how Google Reviews Impact Search Engine Marketing For Builders. Its use is quite simple, all that the builder [be it a plumber, window installer, roofer, carpet fitter or tiler] is to have their dedicated portal always at hand on their mobile phone, then ask the customer to leave a review – all that is really needed is the mobile phone number of the customer and then our software as a service google business reviews platform will guide the customer through the feedback and star ratings reviews process.

The nature of the restaurant, coffee shops, wine bars and eateries business means that in a give typical day the business can have 10s or even 100s of client pass through its doors and receive service from staff members. It may be the case that most of the customers have a great experience and are completely not only satisfied with the quality of the food received but also of the level of service that the highly trained, friendly courteous staff presented them with. Now as is human nature most of satisfied clients will pay their bill, leave and the restaurant may never hear from them again – maybe until they next visit for another meal and experience. Now, we may contrast this with the situation where maybe the food was late, not up to temperature, under [or over] cooked or maybe the service staff were not as friendly as they should have been. It is in these cases where we see that often clients are quick to leave a bad review for the restaurant which appears within Google Search Business Reviews for all of the world to see, and the business cannot remove the review as it is a legitimate and verified customer feedback documented account of events.

Now, if the Chinese Restaurant happened to have 100 4 star positive reviews and 1 or 2 really negative reviews then the prospective customer would be able to view those reviews and read of the positive times other diners had at whilst eating the fine Italian Pasta and make a valid judgement call that the bad experience was a one off event and no reason not to go and experience dining say some fine Indian Cuisine. This is where having a defined process in place for collecting customer feedback and good reviews comes into play.

It is recommended that collecting restaurant diners feedback as a matter of process can only service to enhance the reputation of the restaurant within the region and act as a counteracting effecting in the low percentage of times when a client does not have such a good dining experience.

We at BestBusinessReviews would like restaurateurs, owners of cafes, coffee shops and wine bars to consider the positive effect on their reputation that will be seen if they were to actively pursue customers for and ask them to leave a positive review at the point of them paying and the staff asking them if everything was ok ! It is at that moment when the positive comments and dining experience will be best to get captured; and if the customer happened not to have gotten that which they were looking for – then they would be able to voice their opinions which would be channeled back into the business and viewed as valuable customer feedback.

In order to capture customer feedback in a smooth and efficient manner we the BestBusinessReviews platform allow customer to leave their feedback via their mobile phone, after feedback is left they are then directed to leave the star ratings and reviews directly on the Google Business page of the restaurant in question – quick, smooth and efficient. And; on top of this – ever month a comprehensive report will be sent back the restaurant so that they can view, collate and take action in the necessary direction based on the reviews left for the eatery by the customer.

Goole Reviews For Business

All that any owner of an hotel or bed and breakfast establishment business needs to do is to go to Google, perform a search for a place to stay for a few nights and then take note of the number of reviews that appear within the search engines. All of these reviews which we all take notice of are there for the world to see and have a direct impact on whether or not someone who stays at a hotel or not.

In the case of a glowing positive review this will lead to people looking for a great place to stay for a few nights to want to have the same positive experience had by their fellow travelers. On the other hand – a negative review can lead to the loss of potentially £/$1000s of revenue that the hotel owner may never ever learn about due to the fact that the traveler simply took their business elsewhere.

Taking a typical Bed & Breakfast Hotel in London UK into consideration we can easily deduce that in a given week hundred of guest may choose to stay at any given establishment. Chances are that most of the guests are completely happy with their room, the conveniences as well as the food but as a matter of course – the hotel has no formal process in place to gather customer feedback and google reviews from guests.

Granted, it may be the case that there is a guest book at the check in desk [as is often the case] however these comments will only ever be read [by definition] by individuals or those who are already guests that are already in the Hotel or Bed & Breakfast !! In this day of mobile technology and immediacy, any given Bed & Breakfast Hotel can accelerate their reputation by consistently asking, collecting and displaying positive guest feedback as well as positive Google Business Star Ratings.

Consider the scenario that was built into the daily business operations and drilled into every reception desk staff. It goes something like this …

After checking out a guest, simply ask if their stay was satisfactory – then ask them for an online review. By pulling up a portal [as that developed by BestBusinessReviews.co.uk] and entering a SMS number, this will allow the process of collecting Google Business Reviews and Customer Feedback from the guests.

Over time the Bed & Breakfast Hotel will end up with a collecting of written feedback that can be used for shaping the future operations of the business.

Those glowing positive reviews will be there for all to see in the search engines and most importantly those unhappy customers will have a chance to vent their frustration which will go straight to the hotel owner – the customer can then be dealt with on a personal matter preventing any long term damage to the hotel establishment.

One thing is for sure and that is the statement that people [both men and women] care about the way that they appear on the outside and the evidences for that is clear for all to see; i.e. by the amount of monies that are being spent everyday in hairdressing and beauty salons in every major city in the developed world [at least]. In the UK where we reside one just needs to look at the major metropolitan cities of say London, Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Bristol etc etc and walk down any high street and view the number of beauty salons that will be at times filled with clients.

Now, beauty salons, barbers, spas and hairdressers just like any other business in this technologically advanced world in which we live – need to active in terms of their digital marketing strategies development and execution. One such aspect of the marketing puzzle is that of getting to grips with just why hair and beauty salons and spas google business reviews are marketing highly influential in terms of search engine marketing and then setting out a specific strategy in order to make sure that the views of happy customers are readily displayed on google for the specific locations of each salon.

So what are some of the daily beauty salon services that are delivered daily to customers that in the majority of cases the satisfied customers never ever leave a google reviews ? a short list is as follows …

Hair : cuts, relaxers, perms, colors, shampoo, conditioning, curling, reconstructing, weaving, waving.
Nails : manicures, pedicures, polish, sculptured nails.
Skin Care : European facials, body waxing, massage

… now if you are reading this as a salon owner or employee – consider how many times you have actively as a matter of process asked a delighted customer to provide their client feedback, share their experience on their social media account and to leave a star rating on your particular salon’s google business page ?

Our consulting, training and digital marketing strategy development and execution experiences say that the percentage positive response to the question posed above is very low – we’d say less than five percent. And part of the reason is that salon staff are not trained in marketing, they are not required to ask for digital marketing based feedback and more importantly the beauty salon does not have the mechanism in place that will enable them to guide the customer through a defined process in order to gather the required information.

Such a defined process is exactly what the Best Business Reviews platform provides the beauty salon, spas and hairdressing industry with. With no hardware or software to install – all the salon staff need do is to enter the clients mobile phone number into their dedicated portal. This is where the process commences …

  1. The customer is asked to provide written feedback on their experiences
  2. Next a star rating Google Business Review is left
  3. Then the customer shares their positive experience on the their social media page

This last point is worth noting, in order to expand the social media footprint of the hairdresser having multiple mentions on clients account will serve to do so – as opposed to having all of the comments on their own say Facebook page.

If you are looking for a way to let more customer know about the excellence of each location of your beauty salon, spa or hairdressing business – having a consistent stream of google business reviews is the way to go. Now with the Best Business Reviews platform which will be configured and get targeted for each salon location – you have the ability to not only collate customer feedback for use in future beauty salon business strategy planning purposes, but to expand the social media reach of the business and to give your search engine marketing efforts a huge boost through the presence of the stream of star rating google business reviews.

So let’s take some time aside to consider the question regarding the benefits of Google Business Reviews and; the importance on the collecting of such reviews from clients built into the operational structure of the company in question. Well it is blatantly obvious to say however it should be stated that if one were to list the things that potential clients see when looking up details about a particular company; customer reviews are one of the main things that they take note of after viewing a business on Google or via Google Maps. In addition to the above it have been proven that positive reviews work hand in hand with any search engine marketing campaigns that are being executed by or on behalf of the organisation.

Now when it comes to dealing with SMEs or small companies, online business reviews are great when it comes to social media marketing and in particular bringing in the benefits of social proof to the company. In doing so these [positive] business reviews will serve to assist in increasing the level or degree of trust that is felt when it comes to dealing with a business that one is not familiar with all based on feedback provided by other individuals who are in the market looking to benefit from similiar products or services.

In fact there are many studies on this particular topic but one in particular states that as much as 88 percent of clients have been seen to trust internet based business reviews as much as they do those that would have been made by someone in person.

The search engines in general and specifically speaking Google is often the first place where a customer comes into contact
with and begins to learn some of the company operations including products and services delivered to the marketplace and
other related information that can lead to that customer exchanging money to experience or consume some of the said products
and services.
We all as consumers have our different reasons and method of using the search engines that is determining various businesses in close proximity, to planning the details of local, national or international travel [for both business and personal circumstances] to assisting us with remembering something as simple as a phone number.
The whole process begins with us using our mobile phones, laptops, tablets or [even] desktop computers to type in related keywords into the search engine that we happen to be using with the aim of retrieving that [sometimes] crucial piece of information that we wish to be made aware of.
In relation to that; if we wish to determine how one company may compares to another company, we ,make use of the search engines in order to learn about the experiences of other people with the business in question.
From a strategic business planning and marketing strategy perspective it is important to recognize the need to provide customers with the [easy to use] facility through which they are able which to leave [positive] reviews directly on the company’s Google or Google Maps listings page.
It is fair to assume that that Google reviews are favored by its parent search engine and will show up prominently within those critical search results, therefore if one’s company has a desire to be seen as having a solid, professional and customer satisfying presence within the search engines then by definition one of the very best to make a start would be to accumulate is those positive Google reviews.
