How long it takes to look stellar depends on YOU, your business, your team and your industry, just to name a few.

We want to spread the reviews as far as we can so it helps your visibility online and turns prospects into buyers quickly. Any review over 90 days old online is ancient history!

A.Yes! Per BrightLocal's Annual Consumer Review Survey (2017), responding to reviews is more important than ever, with 30% naming this as key when judging local businesses.

Q.Do I need to fix my business listings?

A. Think of it like this. If you are a train and need to get directly from point A to point B, quickly, would you be there with fewer delays if the track is straight and clean? Or, if it was muddy and in disrepair? The first choice, right? Your business listings work the same way. When they are messy and don't match correctly, it takes your potential customers much longer to find you, and they may be distracted by a shiny competitor along the way.

Q.Are paid ads necessary?

A. Paid ads are becoming more and more necessary as entities such as Facebook & Google test different aspects of their applications. Additionally, the reach you can attain via paid ads is much larger than your already popular close social network, aka, the people who are already seeing your posts and who are likely already your customers.
