They say nothing is more valuable than word of mouth (marketing). However, the way in which we now receive “word of mouth” recommendations has vastly changed over the last decade. We once relied on our neighbors, family members and industry friends to pass on insights and knowledge in addition to the positive or negative sentiment surrounding whatever it was we were interested in. Yet, now we rely on the experiences of strangers from all over the country (and even the world) to assist and steer our buying decisions through the influence of online reviews. Virtually anywhere you search, browse, or shop you can find dozens of online reviews for the items you are curious about and the automotive industry is no exception.
Here at Friendemic we’ve always seen and know the value that online reviews hold in the digital world for dealerships. We’ve spent years working with our clients to grow, gain, respond and implement reputation best practices. With that being said, we’d like to formally introduce the newest product to our suite “Website Widget: Online Reviews''! So what is the Website Widget: Online Reviews product? It’s a simple piece of code you can place anywhere on your dealership website (like the home page, about us page, service page, etc) and it will highlight your top 100 most recent reviews in a rotating carousel format. The review panes will appear in gray or white or we can customize them to match your website color (by website provider). You can view a few examples of product in action below:
Also, a little bit of additional exciting news - If you're a current customer utilizing our Catalyst Connector Package this add-on is 100% free! Otherwise, if you are interested in the product you can book time with a member of our team now to find out how you and your dealership can get the Online Review: Website Widget on your site by clicking the button below.
As Jeff Bezos said “If you do build a great experience, customers tell each other about that. Word-of-mouth is very powerful".
