How to share and feature reviews
When you get praise for a job well done, you want to be recognized for that work. Especially if you are a business trying to capture additional customers in your market. Reviews are one of the main ways consumers decide on which businesses to use for their projects. Over 90% of consumers say that they read online reviews before making a purchasing decision. The end users of a product or service may read up to 10 reviews to make their opinion before a purchase or scheduling a service call. There are several platforms that consumers go to for customer feedback, including Google, Facebook, BBB, Home Advisor, Angie’s List, etc., to read and leave reviews for businesses. Real Time Reviews allows your business the opportunity to manage, respond and feature these reviews to help grow your market share. It takes a few simple steps to set up your Real Time Reviews account and several features can be managed automatically.
Linking Social Media Accounts
Adding your Facebook, Google+ and other social media accounts to Real Time Reviews allows your business to respond to and share reviews all in one place. You can feature positive reviews on your social media profiles. This is advantageous for several reasons. All reviews that are four stars and above will automatically post to your Facebook page as a post. This creates original content with link building, important tools to improve your ranking on Google. Showcasing your reviews across multiple platforms gets more positive feedback to more consumers. All you need is the admin or ownership status of the social media account to link it to Real Time Reviews. You can do that under the Setup section by linking through Setup Social Accounts. If your business does not already have a Google My Business page, it would be very beneficial for you to set one up. Google makes it easy or contact us to assist with the process.

Share Reviews in the Reviews Section
