How Online Reviews Influence Offline Sales

Leverage Your Online Reviews into An Increase in Revenue

The first thing most people do when they come across advertising for a new business is to look for online reviews from past customers. Bad reviews damage to your reputation and discourage new customers from giving you a try. A lack of online reviews can have the same effect since users want to see some type of history on your company and want more than your marketing efforts to rely on.  

How Reviews Impact Offline Sales

Online reviews affect more than just purchases made online. Brick-and-mortar stores also depend on virtual customer feedback. The ROBO (research online, buy offline) economy is driven by consumers doing online research on a product on a mobile device right there in a store before making a purchase.

Each dollar spent at a physical store feels five times the impact of customer reviews than those spent with an online merchandiser. That makes it doubly important for businesses operating both on and offline to keep up with the feedback being provided about their services.

Provide Feedback on All Reviews

Stop feeling helpless when you see someone post an inaccurate review of your business’s products or services. Make sure customers get to see your version of events and get a well-rounded view of a situation. YouReview’s “review stream” helps you direct the best four and five-star reviews onto your primary web marketing platforms in an SEO-friendly format.
