Comparison of Leading Reputation Management Tools
What are Online Reputation Management Tools?
Reputation Management tools are automated (or semi-automated) software which help local businesses systematically monitor & generate online reviews from their customers.
‘Local’ businesses are business that either have a fixed, physical location where they serve customers (e.g. shops, salons, accountants) or are ‘service’ businesses which travel to their customer’s home/work to provide their service (e.g. gardeners, builders, locksmiths).
Online reviews are an increasingly important aspect of digital marketing for local businesses. There’s a very high correlation between google reviews & ranking high in local search, and positive star ratings have been proven to increase click-through rate from search results & engender more trust in consumers for a local business.
