Trustpilot for your website?
Another way to encourage intereaction with your website visitors and build trust and reputation.
I was thinking about ways to go over and above the usual call and response comments system for our websites, so decided to explore Trustpilot as a way of enhancing my reputation. The way I see it, industry is full of scams, so legitimate sites deserve a boost when they provide good product.
Trustpilot are a ratings site, where people post about, and give my site a star rating. Trustpilot are a great way of enhancing the rep of websites that sell products, but has anyone considered that affiliates that give good recommendations and advice can also benefit from them?
I spoke on the telephone today with a Trustpilot guy and told him what I was doing and my plans, and he gave a big thumbs up to using it on a recommendations and review website. He agreed that starting on their free plans to include a Trustpilot button was an excellent idea.
I’ve put the free code on my website and now every review and recommendation will include a ‘Review with Trustpilot’ button.
What do you think? Good idea or not?
Let me know, Dave.
