How to Get Your Business Phone to Ring

Are you a local business wondering how do I get the phone to ring, followed by, what is the fastest way to get the phone to ring? You might be a new company that’s brand new to online marketing or even marketing itself.

Online Reviews | How it Works

The best way to get the phone to ring is to get good online reviews, online reviews are huge. If you think about it, when you’re searching online on:

Their job is to their customers, which is the searcher, what they want to find. So, if they’re serving up a business that is not a good business, it doesn’t have:

  • Good Reviews
  • Any Reviews

You’re looking at not having a good, happy customer. They are not going to provide their customer what they’re looking for. When you have good online reviews on Google, Bing, Yahoo, whoever it is, is going to serve you as the business that they’re searching for.

Online Review Management Tool Purpose

One of the best things you could do is use an online review management tool that allows you to handle bad reviews offline. So let’s say, we got an email or text, we’re going to send this out to a new customer that just came into our store. We’re going to connect with them and ask them to leave our company a review. It will be along the lines of, “Hey, what did you have, a good experience or bad experience? And you’re thumbs up, thumbs down,” by doing that, it’s not going to let them leave a review online. It’ll allow you to resolve that issue offline and hopefully turn that into a solid review or not get the bad review online.

Select Review Locations | Online Review Management

By using an online review management tool, it allows you to select the platform you want to post your business reviews to such as:

  • Google My Business
  • Facebook
  • Yelp
  • Houzz
