With our new review widget, I think we've taken a significant step in making 'write a review' functionality more accessible to more website owners
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 17, 2009
RateItAll, the fun and social way to share reviews of anything, today announced the launch of its interactive review widgets, which allow site owners to quickly and easily add consumer review functionality to their sites, simply by copying and pasting. The new widgets are showcased on the websites of 100 launch partners ranging from web applications to products to local businesses.
These interactive review widgets allow both the posting of a review, and the browsing of the reviews of others - all without leaving the host site. This functionality is available for virtually any topic, including movies, books, gadgets, politicians, travel attractions, blogs, websites, celebrities, companies, and much more.
Samasource, a recent winner of the Facebook Fund competition, is a non-profit that partners with small, talented, tech companies in poor and rural communities to find them clients. Vendor reputation is extremely important to their business, and Samasource is using the RateItAll review widgets as a reputation tracking system for their vendors.
"Reputation equity is something we take for granted in the US, where most people can afford to get online and have a presence on a social or professional networking site," says Samasource CEO Leila Chirayath Janah. "RateItAll will help Samasource build an online presence for our network of small business owners in Africa and South Asia who have been virtually invisible on the web."
Theresa Minette Photography is a wedding photography business in Temecula, CA who uses the RateItAll review widget to maintain a direct communications channel with its customers.
"As the wife of a US Marine, My family moves every few years," says Theresa. "The RateItAll review widget helps to re-establish my reputation as a credible wedding photographer in new regions, even when life changes occur."
SF New Tech is a grassroots group of technology enthusiasts in San Francisco that is more than 5,000 members strong. Each month, the group convenes to network and watch live startup demos. SF New Tech will use the RateItAll review widget to allow its members to rate and review the presenting companies.
"What I like most about the RateItAll review widget is its portability," said founder Myles Weissleder. "This is a tool that can propagate beyond SFNewTech.com to the sites of the presenting companies to solicit additional feedback."
Colnect, offering collectibles collectors unique services in 35 languages, and a recent winner of the pan-European Startup 2.0 competition, is using the RateItAll review widget to solicit feedback on its service.
"As a one man operation, Colnect does not have the resources to have someone dedicated to soliciting consumer feedback," says Colnect founder Amir Wald. "I'm hopeful that the RateItAll review widget will allow me to automate part of this process."
Lefora, a provider of free forum hosting, has implemented the RateItAll review widget on its customer support forum in order to give its users a structured way to provide product feedback.
"Reacting nimbly to user feedback is a major part of our product strategy," says Lefora product manager Vinnie Lauria. "The RateItAll Review widget is a great tool to take the pulse of how we're doing with our customers."
RateItAll also offers a branded widget for corporate partners.
"With our new review widget, I think we've taken a significant step in making 'write a review' functionality more accessible to more website owners," said RateItAll CEO Lawrence Coburn. "Now anyone, whether they are a programmer are not, can quickly and easily add consumer reviews to their site."
