Benefits of having positive Google Maps reviews

Table of contents

    People want to know how your company is doing. And it's not because they care. They have their own undeniable interest in it. Do you have a good Google Maps review? They will be more willing to use your help. Is your reputation bad? Don't fool yourself. They will run to the competition. Even if they decide to use your services or products, they will have a negative attitude. And then they will be more than happy to confirm how poorly you are doing by leaving an unfavorable comment.

     

    What is Google My Business for?

     

    It is not just a place where you can advertise your business. Above all, Google My Business is used for collecting reviews. Google Maps users can give you a rating from 1 to 5 stars. In addition, they can write any comment in the text field below.

     

    Over a billion users worldwide use this platform. It is used by as many as 97% of Polish internet users. That is why having a presence on it is almost obligatory for a business owner.

     

    Positive Google reviews contribute to increased sales.

     

    This is the most obvious effect of good Google reviews. Companies that have a rating above 4 stars account for the majority of sales. Especially if they have many reviews that confirm their experience. By reading positive comments, consumers feel more and more convinced to make a purchase. Why? Because they trust other buyers more than the company's employees.

     

     

    A good reputation on Google Maps attracts more customers to you.

     

    This benefit is clearly connected to the previous one. Google reviews work like a self-fulfilling prophecy. If other people are satisfied with the services of a company, there is a good chance that I will be too. A continuous influx of new customers in turn provides you with more and more reviews. A well-utilized Google My Business listing functions like a well-oiled machine that drives the growth of your brand.

     

    Google reviews can give you an advantage over the competition.

     

    Imagine two companies. They offer the same product. Moreover, they sell it at a very similar price. One company has a very high rating on Google Maps, although its business website is very minimalist. Under the listing of the other company, there are many comments about delivery delays and poor customer service. On the other hand, its store seems to be well-stocked with a wide variety of products.

     

    Who do you think the consumer will choose? Your customer wants to buy a specific item. And they want to do it without stress. They will never invest their time and money in a lower-rated option if they have an alternative.

     

    Google uses reviews in local SEO.

     

    Did you know that Google can display different results when you enter the same keyword in the search engine? It all depends on where you are located. You don't have to use local phrases containing the name of the service or store and a specific city. That's why Google Maps is an indispensable tool not only for companies with a nationwide reach. Even businesses that sell goods and services locally will be more visible in search results if they take care of their reputation on Google.

     

    Google My Business

     

    Negative reviews cannot be removed. But their impact on the rating can be reduced.

     

    Finally, there is the benefit of reducing the significance of bad reviews. In Google Maps, there is no option to disable the option to leave comments. Negative Google reviews can only be removed if they violate the guidelines. So what can you do with them?

     

    First of all, you should learn from them. Secondly, you need to solve the problem of the dissatisfied customer. And thirdly, you need to acquire enough positive reviews so that the negative ones appear to be minor mistakes of a very well-functioning company.
