The Top 10 Review Websites
We live in an age where opinion matters. Online reviews provide a platform for businesses and customers to share information, experiences, and yes, their opinion. Review websites can bolster your organization’s profile and increase your online presence. In fact, studies have shown that most consumers will check a review site before visiting a business.
As a Kelowna marketing agency, Twin Creek Media has helped several businesses use review sites for testimonials, online listings, and for engagement in providing the best customer service.
