    Review Sites

    Review sites are the devil or a godsend depending on how you manage them. Some businesses can thrive or die depending on the consumer reports they receive on review sites. They are a powerful form of earned media. In fact, according to Brite Local’s 2018 Local Consumer Review Survey
    • 86% of consumers read reviews for local businesses,• Consumers read an average of 10 online reviews before feeling able to trust a local business.• 57% of consumers will only use a business if it has 4 or more stars.
    With that kind of user trust in reviews, it’s hard to ignore the power they have. Luckily, Paige Black, your Denver-based PR firm has experience cultivating, monitoring, and managing online reviews.
