Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
Bazaarify, leader in Business Reputation Management (BRM), announced today the addition of SMS capability to its innovative reputation management platform. This industry-first implementation makes it possible for businesses to accelerate the customer review process by delivering automated review requests direct to client mobile phones via SMS. Business owners can also get instant review alerts on their own mobile phones.
In recent years, third party review sites have proliferated, with 92% of consumers now reading reviews prior to selecting a business and 74% saying they will not select a business with a poor reputation. Reviews can make or break a business. Yet, getting customer reviews remains elusive for many SMBs. Asking for reviews at the point of sale or service is not always practical (or welcome), while automated email review requests are often lost in the clutter of the customer’s inbox. To overcome these barriers, Bazaarify has added SMS text messaging to its reputation management platform.
With SMS review requests, businesses have greater success with coverage (brands using SMS successfully reach 95% of smartphone and non-smartphone users), reach (91% of adults have their smartphone within two feet), and immediacy of response afforded by mobile text messaging (90% of text messages are read within 3 minutes of delivery). Request for reviews can now take the direct route to the customer, in hand.
“We love the new SMS review feature from Bazaarify,” said Bailey Tree Company president Jeremiah Bailey. “Getting a steady flow of customer reviews is always a challenge, but with SMS, we have another powerful tool to help us. The initial results are promising, and we look forward to reaching even more of our customers.”
“We’re extending ways for a businesses to connect with their customers instantly,” said Naveen Gupta, CEO of Bazaarify. “By adding SMS, businesses can now accelerate the customer review process — instant feedback, faster remediation, and automated syndication. That means more positive reviews for businesses from happy customers, more referrals, and more repeat customers.”
