Why are online reviews important?

Mathew Coghlan -


Online reviews are important because local consumers use these reviews to determine which local businesses to contact & use.

Reviews also create standout within local search results & directory listings which enables a business to shout louder than it’s competitors. BrightLocal conducts an annual piece of research into Online Customer Reviews; you can view the findings of the 2014 survey here.
