Why Do Your Prospects Care About Reviews?

Customer reviews are incredibly persuasive. To understand why, we dig into how prospective customers use the words of their peers to build trust (or distrust) in your business.


Reviews + Local SEO = 🎉

It's impossible to separate reviews from local SEO. Hundreds of millions of searchers come to Google each month to find local products and services. Reviews are the foundational social proof that powers the whole system.

"Widewail has been an integral part of our operational and SEO strategy. Their partnership has enabled us to assist staff in responding to reviews in a timely, professional manner while utilizing SEO keywords to provide a lift in search engine visibility."
