Realtors and Reviews: Do’s, Don’ts and Advice from Scottsdale Reputation Management Firm
Having a positive online image is crucial for any person offering any kind of product or service to the public. This is extremely true in the competitive industry of real estate. With so many realtors to choose from, it may be hard to stand out from the crowd, but a bigger problem that many realtors face is trying to find clients after suffering negative reviews. Scottsdale reputation management firm JW Maxx Solutions is sharing with realtors some of the ways that they can improve their reviews and thus, their online image.
1. If you don’t ask, you won’t receive.
The old adage goes, “Ask and ye shall receive.” The same saying applies to reviews online. One of the biggest complaints that Scottsdale reputation management firm JW Maxx Solutions sees from clients is that they do not have enough reviews online. But oftentimes, these individuals and businesses never ask for their customers to go online and give them a positive reviews. More often than not, clients will not go out of their way to go online to post a review unless their experience was absolutely horrible, or at least extremely unsatisfactory in some way. If a client verbally expresses their satisfaction or appreciation of a job well done, that is the opportune time to politely ask them to go online and post a positive review.
2. Never post fake reviews.
Even if you don’t have a lot of reviews online, fewer reviews are definitely preferable to fake reviews. If the average consumer looks at your reviews and is suspicious of what is written there, then you have already lost your reputation battle. Distrust from a target market is the absolute worst thing a realtor can instill in their clients. Once this happen, it’s time to enlist the help of the Scottsdale reputation management firm JW Maxx Solutions.
