For the Consumer it’s another story….

It’s a Saturday night and you’re looking for a good place to eat, or you’ve just moved to a new city and are in search of a hairdresser. The days of trusting “walk-ins” are becoming something of the past. We want 5 star ratings, detailed reviews, and photos of validation before we call to make a reservation or appointment.

It’s a well known fact that instant review-based decision making has impacted the success and failure of local businesses around the world.

Ireland Directory Smartphone Reviews

Here at Ireland Directory, we encourage consumers to leave reviews and the Business Owner should also do the same, because it is a sure way to increase business.

Business Owners and Reviews…

Undoubtedly the best way to get a good review is to keep providing excellent products and services, but you can also give your customers a little nudge by asking them for their feedback.

Some companies will dissuade you from directly asking for reviews from happy customers but it’s not against the laws of business.

If you offer a good service or product and engage with a customer and they’re happy, why not encourage them to go on Ireland Directory and talk about their experience? Asking someone face to face is the best chance of getting a fantastic review. Encourage your staff to keep this in mind each time they have a good experience with a customer.

Don’t just set up your Ireland Directory account and walk away, you should be as active on Ireland Directory as you can.

Ireland Directory customer reviews are the most important aspect to maintaining a high search position, and the best way to moderate your customers’ experiences is to actively engage with them.

Responding to positive reviews is a nice personal touch to show visitors that you appreciate customer feedback and are actively communicating on Ireland Directory.

You should never respond in a demeaning or negative tone no matter how terrible the review is. The way you communicate with customers is public for everyone to see so being professional at all times is extremely important.

Are you hosting an event or remodeling your store? Maybe you’re throwing an end of season blowout sale. Use the Announcement tool to invite customers into your business or to keep them up to date on your store’s latest activities. All you have to do is create the announcement and post it on your Ireland Directory page.

Give potential customers who find you on Ireland Directory an incentive to visit your store with offers and special deals. Discounts, gift certificates, and buy-one-get-one deals are fantastic ways to connect with new customers and grab some more positive reviews for your page. It also gives you a way to stand out from your competition.

We look forward to seeing you soon and helping you to increase footfall to your business. And remember that we are always here ready to help.
