Online reviews can make or break your business.


If you don’t believe me, consider this: 88 percent of U.S. consumers read reviews posted on sites like Yelp, TripAdvisor, Google, and Facebook in order to determine whether a local business is good or not. Moreover, 74 percent read anywhere between 2 to 10 online reviews before making a purchase decision. Reviews also inspire twice as much trust as social media likes, tweets, or follower counts; and, 4 out of 5 times, a consumer will reverse a purchase decision after reading a negative online review.
