Customer Feedback For Virtual Office Services

15 Review Platforms To List Your Business & Get More Leads

Grant Merriel

Every business is looking to improve its online reputation and generate trust among potential customers. 

Nowadays, customers are spoiled for choice. An average person can receive hundreds (or even thousands) of advertising messages per day, making it difficult to choose a top-of-the-range product. 

For this reason, most people compare various products and services based on customer reviews. According to Qualtrics, 93% of customers read online reviews before buying a product (that’s quite a hefty chunk!)

So, people use other consumers’ opinions, ratings, and feedback to narrow down their choices and make buying decisions. As a customer, I imagine you’re doing the same.

Thus, listing your business on various review platforms is an absolute must to build trust and convert more leads.

1. What are review platforms and why should you use them?

Customer Reviewing A Virtual Office

A review platform is a powerful marketing tool that creates transparency between businesses and customers by enabling people to add product reviews.

Most of these platforms provide star ratings, comments, review filters, photo sections, and, potentially, the ability to add ratings for various attributes of the products or services. 

Let me get it straight. Review platforms are relevant for:

  • Helping customers find out if a product or service can fulfill their expectations
  • Building trust between businesses and customers 
  • Helping companies gain insight into the quality of their products and services (in order to improve them)
  • Increasing online business reputation
  • Improving SEO rankings (some of these platforms are official Google and Bing partners)
  • Helping businesses attract the customers who are not using (only) Google

‘Do I still need to list my business on these platforms if I’m already getting positive reviews on Google?’

Yes. I agree that Google reviews should be your top priority. But your Google reviews aren’t everything. 

For example, some of your customers are using Bing (and trusting Bing reviews).  

Anyway, let’s go back to the point. 

You should definitely list your business on these platforms. 

A certain percentage of your overall market is regularly using the review platforms mentioned in this post. So, why lose sales opportunities?  

Note: As I mentioned in my previous posts on setting up Google My Business and setting up Bing Places, you do not necessarily need a traditional business address to build a strong online presence on these platforms. 

I agree that you cannot list your business on various websites using your home address. Making your home address available to everyone would be unprofessional and risky. 

However, you can use a professional business virtual address to claim your business on all of these websites and start gaining more visibility.

Virtual Office Listed On A Review Platform

As most of the platforms listed above require a fee for their services, I am aware that you won’t be able to list your business on all of them. 

However, you can choose a few of them to list your business and start building more customer trust. 

To choose the most transparent and trustworthy platforms to list your business, I suggest you…read customer reviews. That’s funny, but you can actually read several customer reviews about reviews platforms. 

I cannot tell you what review platform fits your business best (this may depend on your business model and the products/services you sell). But I strongly recommend you spare some time to read reviews and comparison pages before deciding what review platform makes for you. 

If you found this post useful and understand the power of reviews but cannot list your business on these platforms because you do not have a professional business address, B2B HQ’s team would be glad to provide you with an effective solution. 

Contact us, and we can set up a flexible and affordable virtual office for your business. Our virtual office packages include a unique professional address that you can use to list your business on the most popular review platforms. Collecting positive reviews, building trust, and increasing SEO are easier than you think!
