Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) January 26, 2012
With RatePoint.com's recent announcement that it is officially shutting its doors on February 2nd, thousands of Ratepoint customers are suddenly left in a lurch, desperately trying to salvage their customer ratings and reviews before everything goes dark.
It came as a shock to many Ratepoint customers, when out of the blue they received an email from Ratepoint informing them that they were going out of business. Here's an excerpt from that email...
"As some of you may know, RatePoint’s assets and technologies are currently being acquired. Unfortunately this means that all RatePoint accounts will soon be closed. Effective February 2, 2012, all RatePoint services, including Reputation Management, Email Marketing, Surveys, and Product Reviews will be discontinued. Your ability to access your RatePoint account will end at this time."
In an effort to help Ratepoint customers salvage the online reputation they've built over time, Shopper Approved is helping Ratepoint customers transfer their customer ratings and reviews to the Shopper Approved platform.
"The most trusted type of reviews online are 3rd party reviews because it shows new potential customers that the reviews are trusted and vetted by an independent party. Without being able to transfer their Ratepoint reviews to another trusted 3rd party, all of the reviews that Ratepoint customers have collected to date will have very little value. We want to help these businesses maintain the value and integrity of the ratings and reviews they've collected by giving them a new home," says Scott Brandley, co-founder of Shopper Approved.
In an effort to help Ratepoint customers make the transition, Shopper Approved (http://www.ShopperApproved.com) is offering a special 50% discount off their services to all Ratepoint customers, in addition to moving over all of their ratings and reviews free of charge.
