LocalCrowd — Listing & Review Management for Local SEO

If you serve local markets, you need Local SEO. It’s vital for reaching more local cus­tomers. Local SEO needs con­sistent listings on key dir­ect­ories, and good reviews. Managing reviews and listings can be hard work, though. You need to:

  • Promote your business on major dir­ect­ories
  • Claim listings that have been auto­mat­ically created for you
  • Monitor your listings to fix incon­sist­encies and duplicates
  • Track your reviews — you can’t manage what you don’t know about!
  • Request more reviews from happy cus­tomers
  • Respond to neg­ative reviews to manage your online repu­tation

Still, 90% of cus­tomers will research your firm before buying. Poor reviews will lose you sales. They’ll hurt your search rankings, too. So will incon­sistent business listings — or only having a few.

Clearly, you need to manage your reviews and listings. So, what’s the solution?

FAQs for LocalCrowd Review Management

How can review management boost my sales?

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.

Almost all con­sumers now search for local busi­nesses online. In fact, local search terms account for 46% of all Google searches and 16% of local searches on mobile 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. Siri, Cortana, Alexa and Google Assistant find that inform­ation on dir­ect­ories and business listings like Google My Business.

How can I handle unfair feedback?

Everyone gets neg­ative feedback at times — and it can be valuable. Unfair reviews can be dam­aging, though. So they need to be managed. Some sites require you to respond in public. Others will let you check poor reviews before they are pub­lished. In either case, LocalCrowd provides prompt review alerts, a cross-platform dash­board and optional screening tools.

How can I get more reviews?

LocalCrowd provides editable tem­plates for requesting reviews, with optional pre-screening of ratings as noted above. You can link these to any site with a review URL, and schedule friendly reminders for reviewers if needed. It can send these through a special email platform to max­imise deliv­er­ab­ility — or even by SMS.

What causes inconsistent listings?

Your listings are con­trolled by third-party sites. Over time, updates to those sites and acci­dental duplic­ation can create incon­sist­encies. LocalCrowd helps you find and fix these errors, within the limits of those plat­forms.
