Online reviews have been around a while. But in the past few years, they’ve increasingly become more important than ever, and the statistics to support its relevancy are overwhelming. Think about it: when you are considering buying a product on Amazon or searching for a restaurant to go to, do you ever look at the reviews to help make your decision? The answer, most likely, is yes.

Today, you can find just about anything online, whether that’s a product or a service, and everyone out there is in the business of marketing. Oftentimes, it’s hard to tell if the images and descriptions are really what you’re getting, or if you’re being scammed. But when we see online reviews from real people just like ourselves who are willing to testify for this brand, it gives us peace of mind that we’re making the right decision.

Our team of digital marketing experts agree: the worst enemy for a business’s online presence is an outdated website.

There are several elements of your website that might be considered outdated, including content, design and images. Even having just one of these sections not up-to-date can hurt your website’s effectiveness, because it makes your overall business appear to be outdated as well. People are less likely to trust a business with a website that looks like it hasn’t seen an update in over a decade, especially if they only landed on your website through a search.

When you look at your business’s website, are you proud of the way your remodeling company is represented? Do you feel like your level of work is accurately portrayed through your photos, web design and site optimization? If you can’t stand using your own site, chances are that your clients won’t either. But before you give up on your kitchen and bath company’s online presence, consider the difference your business could see when your website is gaining you new clients rather than repelling them.

When it comes to your company’s online presence, your website can go one of two ways: either it can help your business, or it can hurt your business.

It’s no secret that online reviews are growing more and more important to the success of a business. They’ve become a key factor for trustworthiness, visibility and rankings. A collection of positive reviews has the power to attract more customers to your business, because people trust the opinions and experiences of other people like themselves who are using the same services. And while it’s easy to assume that getting a 5-star review from every customer is ideal, that’s actually not the case.

Believe it or not, reviews with less than 5 stars can actually have a positive impact on a business’s reputation and online performance. You might be thinking, how can it be that lower reviews are better than higher ones? There are a number of reasons why 5-star reviews aren’t always ideal.

Most businesses, no matter the industry, will see at least one bad customer review in their lifetime. Companies can fall into this category, too, often without major fault on your part. With a home remodeling company, for example, an appliance could have been incorrectly ordered, or the client may be unhappy that their remodel took slightly longer than expected. Although these things happen and are quite normal when dealing with a service-based business, customers often forget that and take out their frustration on the only outlet they know: The Internet.

The reactions many business owners have when they see a negative online review involve getting upset, finding someone (either the client or an employee) to blame for the situation and hoping potential customers don’t see the review. But rather than let a bad review get to you, there’s an easy—and smart—way to turn that negative online review into a marketing asset for your business.

Owning your Google local listing is an absolute must when it comes to marketing your company. Anyone who is familiar with the digital marketing industry can tell you that.

First, let’s start with the basics

For many of us, the Internet is both a blessing and a curse. It provides endless outlets for information and idea sharing, but it can also be a major distraction, leading you from one page to the next, until you’ve somehow found yourself watching funny cat videos on YouTube. We’ve all fallen prey to Internet distractions, but the last place you want people to be distracted is when they’re visiting your business’s website.

Eliminating those distractions is easier said than done, but the best approach to take is going with a minimalistic website design. A design concept like this works hard to display your content in the simplest form possible, getting right to the point. It might sound simple, but mastering it takes a lot more than just making the delete key your best friend.
