Stik: Authentic Reviews

July 24 2013

stik logoLets say you are in need of a product or service. Following the ZMOT conceptZMOT concept, which hopefully you have read, you do your due diligence and start researching your options online and stumble upon a few possible choices.

What drives your decision to one vendor or another? Chances are it's going to be the reviews and/or testimonials.

Testimonials are tricky these days. There are nefarious services that companies can pay to give them better reviews, which I obviously don't recommend, and consumers aren't so easily fooled anyway.

Not only is today's consumer looking for reviews, but the smart consumer is also evaluating the validity of these statements.

  • John H says "fantastic customer service!"
  • Peggy S says "best person for the job!"

A testimonial without substance like a full name, photo, or even possibly a linked social media account doesn't hold water anymore.

That is what drives the new, updated version of anonymous reviews, no phony recommendations! Each review is linked to a "real" live social media account, so your potential clients can see that you really do have raving fans and not just a creative mind!
