Bonus 1: Google My Business Management

Did you know that Google lets you post pro­mo­tional updates dir­ectly to your Google My Business (“GMB”) page? It can be a great way to connect with cus­tomers who search for your business name on Google — which many do just prior to a sale.

The catch? Google only dis­plays these updates for a week.

The solution? Loc­al­Crowd — which now lets you schedule GMB posts and auto­mat­ically re-post them when they expire.

Bonus 2: SEO Plus Plans Combo

Loc­al­Crowd works even better when com­bined with my uniquely flexible “SEO Plus Plans”. Those, in turn, combine powerful SEO tech­niques with a far wider range of optional digital mar­keting tactics. So any of these packages offers huge value as-is.

Still, I’ve long been on a mission to help smaller UK busi­nesses benefit from cost-effective digital mar­keting. So you’ll get Loc­al­Crowd for just £75 per month if you combine it with any of my SEO Plus Plans.

FAQs for LocalCrowd Review Management

How can review management help my business?

Good citation and review man­agement boosts organic (unpaid) search pos­i­tioning for local and general search terms. It can also get your business fea­tured in the “map pack” above other organic search results. Why should that matter, though?

Well, almost all con­sumers now search for new local busi­nesses online. In fact, local search terms account for 46% of all searches on Google. Also, 16% of local mobile searches lead to a sale within 24 hours. So local search per­formance can make or break a small business.

Voice search is growing rapidly, too — with cus­tomers notably checking details like shop opening hours. Where do voice search bots like Siri, Cortana, Alexa and Google Assistant find that inform­ation? On dir­ect­ories, review sites and other business pro­filing systems like Google My Business.

Online mar­keting moves fast. As cus­tomer beha­viour changes, search engines respond. So you can’t afford to fall behind.

How can I handle unfair feedback?

All busi­nesses get neg­ative feedback at times — and that can be valuable. After all, con­structive cri­ticism is how we learn and grow. Still, sending cus­tomers to review sites risks com­plaints going public before they can be addressed privately.

Until you have lots of pos­itive reviews, even one or two poor ones can have a big impact. So that risk puts many small firms off even starting to gather reviews. Loc­al­Crowd can help you to address cus­tomers’ con­cerns before they go public. That helps you to improve your service, as well as your online repu­tation.

Loc­al­Crowd can help you manage reviews across a large range of sites, which each with their own policies for accepting reviews. Some, including Google, forbid this fil­tering of reviews, requiring you to reply to unfair reviews instead. So Loc­al­Crowd lets you turn review fil­tering on or off as you require. It also lets you respond to reviews from mul­tiple plat­forms through a single dash­board.

In any case, you are solely responsible for ensuring your review man­agement pro­cesses comply with the policies of the plat­forms you use.

How does LocalCrowd help me get reviews?

Loc­al­Crowd provides editable tem­plates for requesting reviews, with optional pre-screening of ratings as noted above. You can add links to any site that provides a suitable review URL, and schedule follow-up mes­sages for clients who don’t respond promptly.

These review requests are nor­mally sent through a special email platform to max­imise deliv­er­ab­ility. You can also add clients’ phone numbers to send the requests by SMS. Text mes­sages benefit from a much higher open rate than email, though extra charges may apply.

Why aren’t all my listings identical?

The content and formatting of listings are con­trolled by third-party sites. Over time, updates to those sites and acci­dental duplicate listings can create incon­sist­encies. Loc­al­Crowd can help you to find and correct these errors, within the limits imposed by the third-party plat­forms.
