10. The Case For Internet Reputation Management
90% of Consumers Start Their Search Online
If you checked Google Analytics, you would see that your dealership name is your #1 source organic traffic.
The Yellow pages and BBB are dead and have been replaced by Google Maps and Peer Reviews.
Google Maps shows thousands of times a month when people search your business name.
The scary fact is that many business owners have very poor visible consumer review scores on Google Maps.
11. Google Maps Shows Review Counter
12. Who Takes The Time To Post Reviews
The majority of posts are motivated by anger after a negative experience.
Only a small percentage of customers who have a positive experience will post without prodding.
This is changing with the next generation of mobile applications.
Encouraging your customers to take action is NOT an easy processbut you can not ignore it either.
13. Google Maps Facts
Google Maps rolls up reviews from multiple sources: CitySearch, InsiderPages, Dealerrater,
Consumers can post reviews directly on Google Maps and we recommend direct posts.
Once negative reviews are posted, it is hard to get them removed.
The goal of your IRM process is to have balance not perfection; you cant stop negative posts.
The order of dealers listed on Google maps is not static and often based on the IP of your PC.
14. Google Page One Check
Type in your dealership name
Is Google Maps Correct?
How Many listings do you control?
