In the last few posts, we focused on the good and bad review websites and what to avoid. But with everything else in life and business, they are part of the necessary marketing steps that every small business should consider. Today, we will focus on the top five websites you should get your business listed on. You’ll need to go into each website and claim your business to take advantage of the free listing. It gives you a chance to see what customers are saying about your business. Then, if you find any bad reviews, you can reach out to that customer and resolve the problem using the Rating Bee resolution engine with each one of these websites. When claiming your listing, be sure to always have consistent information. Make sure to have the correct contact info, the location of the business, hours of operation and provide easy opportunities for the customers to communicate with your customer service reps.
