San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 2, 2009
RateItAll (http://www.rateitall.com), a leading consumer review network and web service that allows people to find and share reviews on any topic, today launched two new marketing tools for website and small business owners; 1) a free "Claim this Business" tool that allows business owners to take ownership of their RateItAll listing; and 2) a self serve sponsorship program that provides local businesses and websites greater control over their pages as well as additional promotion opportunities.
RateItAll's free "Claim This Business" feature allows owners or representatives of a website or business to take ongoing editorial control of their listing on RateItAll in terms of business description, photos, and outbound links.
Priced at $39.95 per month, RateItAll's sponsorship program provides owners or representatives of a website or business with a number of additional promotion and publishing tools including:
- Ad placement on competitor listings and business category page
- Official response tool allowing business owners to respond to consumer reviews in an official capacity
- Featured review tool allowing business owners to select one review for featured placement
- Competitor ad blocking tool preventing competitors from advertising on their RateItAll listing
- Email alert tool that notifies a listing owner when new reviews are posted
RateItAll employs Amazon Flexible Payments System (Amazon FPS) to ensure secure online credit card processing.
"Consumer reviews are not just for products anymore," said RateItAll CEO Lawrence Coburn. "Our goal is to provide a powerful, easy to use set of publishing and promotion tools for businesses and websites to make the most of this influential medium."
