Why Reviews Matter to Your Business
My guest on today’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast is Aaron Weiche, CEO of GatherUp. GatherUp is a platform that helps businesses capture customer feedback, testimonials and reviews.
Prior to joining GatherUp, Weiche worked for 20 years in digital marketing, most recently as COO of Spyder Trap, a digital agency based in Minneapolis. He speaks nationally about search marketing, web design, and reputation management.
On this episode, we discuss Weiche’s work with GatherUp, and he shares everything small business owners need to know about soliciting reviews, and monitoring and managing their online reputation.
Questions I ask Aaron Weiche:
- Do reviews matter in every industry?
- Do consumers understand the difference between first-party and third-party reviews?
- What drives a happy customer to take that extra step and write a review?
What you’ll learn if you give a listen:
- Why depth of information matters more than the source of the review.
- How small business owners should respond to reviews.
- How reviews play into a business’s SEO.
