Are You Gaining Mileage on Your Business Journey?

Last Update: August 13, 2019

Putting the Petal to the Metal.

So, you're on your journey to build a great business with endless conversions. Yes, we all want to succeed in Affiliate Marketing. But, is your business leading to interaction with your visitors?

In a perfect world, a potential customer comes to your site, shops around, and then makes a purchase. However, are you letting him or her leave without conversing? Good question, right?! With that said, a super way to interact, bring your customers back, and draw in new customers is to generate reviews.

Why Are Reviews so Important?

Once you know why reviews are so powerful, you will understand why it's essential for your brand to come up with a plan for collecting feedback.

Visitors use reviews to decide what businesses and products they can trust. Developing trust is what every business should be centered around. And, at the top of the "trust list" are reviews!

"Social proof" is evidence that others have trusted a product or service, and every good website nowadays has customer reviews. Statistics show that 91% of consumers read online reviews before making a purchase. So, with that in mind, it's a great idea to have a star chart with a review page for each product.

This will help gather data in order to generate more sales.

SHOPIFY'S CLIENTS SEE A 239% RISE IN IMPRESSIONS WITH REVIEWS.

Interestingly, Shopify stores with customer reviews is one example of proof that they work. Not only do the reviews appear on the product page, but they also appear in the search data! So, when someone is searching for a specific product or service, and a review for it comes up in the search, chances are that they'll click on it! The same is true with reviews on other websites.

If you don't have reviews, it could impact your sales & revenue. Customers are more likely to buy when reviews about your products are visible.


How to Generate Product Reviews.

First, you must set up a system that invites previous buyers to leave feedback about their purchase. You can also generate further reviews by reaching out to bloggers and ask them to write blog post reviews about your products. The same applies to Testimonials.

Wealthy Affiliate Reviews From Your Referrals.

For those who have MMO sites promoting Wealthy Affiliate, you can ask all your referrals to write a review at the bottom of your WA Review page. This will certainly add credibility! You can even ask current members, as well. To do this, make sure they use SiteComments! Below is one on my post:

Here are Some Ideas to Help You:

  • Highlight some popular product reviews on your website.
  • Make it easy to leave a review on each product page.
  • Ask customers to leave product reviews by emailing them.
  • Develop an email list and campaign for all your buyers and follow up with them displaying other products you have for sale.
  • Engage with all your reviews.
  • Ask bloggers to review products.
  • Offer a reward or incentive for customers who leave reviews.

Engagement!

Make sure you also use SiteComments for all your posts! This will generate great input. Plus, add some content on each post directing your readers to the comments. Make sure you ask some questions to get them to engage! Google's algorithms will pick up on it!

I hope this gives you some ideas on how to gain some traction and "mileage" on your business journey!
