The Secrets to Winning the Online Reputation Game

No Comments

It’s OK. You can admit it…you need help with your online reputation. Most dealerships do!

Popular review sites such as Yelp give customers a chance to review your products and services and share their experiences. However, it also gives dissatisfied customers a public forum to blast your dealership – and as many dealerships know, once a negative review has been posted, aside from convincing the disgruntled poster to remove it, there is very little you can do to take it down.

DO YOU NEED HELP WITH YOUR ONLINE REPUTATION?

More than likely, the answer to that question is probably a yes. It’s no surprise that businesses that have a strong robust online reputation have improved their traffic, customer loyalty, branding, sales and service. What is surprising is the number of dealerships that don’t take their online reputation more seriously. After all, just a one-star increase in a Yelp rating leads to a 5-9% increase in revenue. That means, if you have a 3-star Yelp rating and an annual revenue of $1 Million, a 1-star increase can bring in $50K -$90K more each year. Basically, More Stars Sell More Cars!

Whether you have an online reputation problem that needs fixing, an online reputation that could use a boost, or no online reputation at all, everyone can benefit from this insightful 1 hour webinar.
