Every business can benefit from Word of Mouth Marketing. Not only is it hugely influential-it’s cost effective too. Letting customers market your business for you is a smart strategy to adopt. And with the rise of online reviews, it’s never been easier to
access or share word of mouth recommendations.
Why Online Reviews are Important
Word of Mouth Marketing used to be limited to personal interactions. The internet has made it easy to share recommendations with an unlimited number of people. It should come as no surprise that shoppers take advantage of this.
Modern consumers read on average 10 reviews before shopping at a new business. They trust reviewers to steer them in the right direction and it’s easy to see why. Online reviews establish a business’s credibility. Potential customers will notice if your business has no reviews. It makes you appear untrustworthy. Silence, in this case, speaks louder than words.
To remedy this, businesses should be actively encouraging their customers to leave reviews.
