More than ever, your prospective customers are looking for objective sources of reputation online. Here are three numbers that tell the entire story:*
94% of prospective customers look up suppliers online before doing business with them. That's whether or not they meet you at a trade show or speak to you over the phone.
85% of prospective customers trust online reviews as much as word-of-mouth recommendations.
30% of prospective customers do online research to evaluate a supplier after receiving a quote. So receiving a custom quote from you is just the beginning of their research process.
Why should you care?
Businesses are 4x more likely to purchase from a supplier for whom they found positive reputation information.
