Why review websites are so important for your business

There are many online businesses that pop up every day of the week. Many are fly by night stores that may be set up with good intentions but people, especially people with little experience realise that running an online business is not all it is cracked up to be. I get hounded by ads every day on Youtube and Instagram about “make X amount per day” online businesses and join this this or that guru program to reach this goal.

Most of these ads are crazy and should be illegal in my opinion. They are very dangerous and people who are naive can put their life savings into something like this and lose it all because a “guru” told them they could quit their job and work from anywhere in the world if they joined their course. The truth is an online business is as difficult if not more difficult to run than an off line business. The same rules apply except that you are competing with the whole world essentially. You have websites in China selling products are very low rates and even though they will provide no customer service or warranty it will still drive down the price.

A large part to getting a successful business online is to build trust and the only way to do that is to get reviews from customers. This will boost your conversion rate so much and it is so important for your business. So don’t think of how can I make x amount online. Instead think of how can I please this customer so they can leave a good review which will bring in more customers. People will actively Google your website and “reviews”. For example when you Google “ reviews” their page is not the first result and instead it is a competitor that does not good reviews. People who are not internet savvy will not notice that it is a different website.

How Covid-19 is affecting businesses

Covid-19 has taken almost every business by Storm and whilst there are many worrying newspaper articles predicating one of the greatest recessions in history some businesses are seeing business boom. The most vulnerable sectors and the hardest hit by the Covid-19 lock down are tourism including airlines, hotels and bed and breakfasts with the retail sector also taking a hammering. There is now talk of pubs and restaurants not being open for another 6 months so many small businesses will go under in this period as these are fragile businesses that reliable on cash flow to stay afloat. 

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Outbreak: Government & business response ...

It is predicted over 50% of pubs will have to close if the lock down goes on another few months. Whilst the virus is of course dangerous, the fallout from this economic meltdown could be much worse but only time will tell. Some businesses and sectors are seeing an increase so that is a bit of positive news. The health sector is of course in huge demand any many businesses have moved from other sectors to get a piece of market share. 

For example some car manufacturers are now making ventilators of course to fill the need for them but let’s not forget that they are in business to make money also. Another market that is doing well is the home fitness equipment niche. With gyms also locked down many people were racing to get their fitness equipment online. Items like dumbbells pull up bars and weights benches were quickly selling out on many online stores. Some stores even increased prices as the demand was so high. Review websites like have since been popping up to help fill the void in the home gym equipment niche. There are other sectors like the more obvious ones such as hand sanitiser and face mask websites also popping up around the web.
