Any type of small business can benefit from good reviews, but remodeling businesses probably have the most to gain. As a remodeler, people in your area want to know that you do good work, and your customer reviews can be very reassuring to them. If you want to get more leads and more work, getting more reviews is a good place to start. The team at TIC Digital Marketing has a few ideas about how you can achieve that goal.
Ask for Reviews after the Project is Complete
If you want more reviews, all you have to do is ask! Every time you complete a job, ask the client if they would be willing to give you a good review. Whether it’s on Google My Business, Yelp, Houzz, or on your own website. Good reviews pack a lot of search engine optimization (SEO) punch that will help you rank higher on local searches.
If clients are reluctant to take the time to review you, a little motivation might help. In exchange for their review, you can offer free services, merchandise, raffle tickets, or anything else you can think of.
Put it On Your Website
Make it easy for clients to review you by putting up a form on your website or links to popular review sites. The fewer obstacles in their way, the more likely they are to sit down and write that review.
Use Reputation Management Platforms
If you’re having trouble getting reviews, you may want to consider hiring a reputation management service or asking your digital marketing team for help. Reputation management can help you get more reviews, helps with SEO, and can help you deal with unfounded online attacks. Just make sure you research the firm you choose to make sure they don’t use illegal or unethical tactics.
