Reach More People and Increase Your Revenue With Google Reviews
Your number one goal as a business is to be seen by potential customers and to convert those views into revenue. To do this, it’s imperative that your business is highly ranked on Google and that you’ve earned trust within the demographic you’re advertising to. Adding reviews to your Google listing, Facebook page, and website allows you to achieve both of these goals, and Hudson Brauntz makes the process fast and easy.
How Adding Reviews Can Improve Your Google Ranking
Before we get into how adding reviews can improve your Google ranking, we should discuss why your ranking matters. When you rank higher locally on Google, your business’s information is more likely to appear on the first page of search results when someone in the area searches for your service. We call this local SEO and it’s extremely important when driving new business to your webpage or physical location.
So how do reviews help with local SEO? Well, they help in two ways. First, abundant, high-quality reviews are one of the most important factors Google uses to calculate your ranking. Businesses with tons of good reviews are seen as credible in Google’s eyes and, as a result, are prioritized in searches so that customers are more likely to be satisfied with their service. (Google REALLY wants people to be happy with their search results so that they continue to use their search engine over other options.)
The second reason reviews matter for your business is simple: people trust other people. Companies that have reviews are far more credible than those without and therefore, they get more clicks and conversions.

Ok, so now you know why customer reviews are important to your business, but how do you go about getting top-tier reviews? That’s where we come in. Hudson Brauntz digital offers a comprehensive review management program that makes it easy for satisfied clients to leave a review after they ‘ve experienced your service.
After a project is complete, your customers will receive a text message asking them to review your business on the platform of their choice. Popular options include Google and Facebook for gathering reviews. The direct ask automatically populates a five-star rating and encourages customers to confirm with their own comments. Plus, you can opt to set your review program to hide any reviews that are less than four stars, ensuring only the best reviews are seen by the public.
