In this fast paced, multi-tasking world I’m always looking for experts to help. It’s not that I can’t do a great job of the task myself, but I am already in ‘full time everything’ mode (full time job + full time family = full time life!) and adding another function will mean that quality suffers (or that the cat doesn’t get fed that day!)
91% of consumers read online reviews for local businesses.
The last two blogs have highlighted the importance of managing your business’s reputation with Reputation Management and Reputation Spy. And while these products offer you all the functionality you need, they are self-serve (after we set you up of course!) So, if you are already in ‘full time everything’ mode and need to manage your businesses reputation, you need an expert. DirectWest’s Review Management product is the answer!
