According to research by Heinz Marketing, “90% of people say reading online reviews has influenced their decisions.”
Additionally, according to the 2021 Local Search Ranking Factors report done by Whitespark, online reviews are the #2 most important factor in local search rankings.
Yes, having a lot of good, positive online reviews has a huge impact helping people find your church, ministry or business online AND giving a positive first impression that leads them to want to know more.
How do you get more positive online reviews?
You may be tempted to send out a massive email blast to your customers, supporters or congregation asking them to post a review, but this is a bad idea for several reasons:
- Many organizations struggle to find the best wording for the email and end up sending a message that is impersonal and ineffective.
- People rarely respond to the first request. Either they are not convinced or they think, “Sure, I’ll do that when I have a few minutes.” and then forget.
- Google gets suspicious when there’s a big, sudden surge of new reviews and often does not publish them.
The secret to gaining positive online reviews is to personally ask a small number of people each week to post a review using language which is effective and then following up with them.
You can do that yourself, but it takes time, effort, testing, organization and consistency.
Or you can put our experienced team and proven systems to work for you.

And there’s one more big thing we do…
We hate to say this, but online review sites like Google, Facebook, and Yelp have a terrible reputation for customer service. Sometimes people post reviews and they are never published. Sometimes reviews disappear for no reason. It’s nearly impossible to contact these companies. And when you do, they often don’t respond.
If you opt for our Online Review Plus Service, we will put our contacts and experience to work for you to resolve issues like this when they arise.
