Why do customer reviews lead to higher sales figures? Trust sells! Before consumers actually buy anything from you, they will have heard about your company and seen related content several times. Customers feel the need to inform themselves about potential new purchases and service providers much more comprehensively than 20 years ago. In this context, the voices of your customers are the ideal medium to ensure that people trust you more than the competition – and in turn generate higher effective sales figures.

Your ProvenExpert profile as a magnet to attract inquiries and orders



When it comes to searching for a product or a specific brand in the world wide web, Google and similar websites are usually the first stop. With your ProvenExpert profile, you can offer prospective buyers more than just another search engine hit. Your ProvenExpert profile contains the information that is relevant to your prospective buyers: the experiences of your customers are the right arguments to decide in favor of you. With the „Callback request“ and „Write a message“ buttons, you can offer more possibilities to contact you – as far as our experience goes, this very often results in concrete inquiries.



More reviews – more customers

To acquire even more customers who then can promote your business, you can invite your customers to participate in surveys with the help of our invitation function. The more specifically you ask your customers about your services, the higher is the probability that you can in turn reach out to prospective customers with similar interests or problems.In other words: the more diverse your customer reviews are, the more prospective buyers identify themselves with the reviewer – which moves them one step closer to your cash register. You can also add reviews from other platforms to your ProvenExpert profile. This enables you to present yourself as transparently as possible. The more reviews you collect, the more representative and convincing is your review score for prospective buyers.



Tip:By the way: some customers simply forget to write a review – even though they actually wanted to do it. Additionally, many customers think that their feedback is unnecessary because reviews that have already been posted reflect their opinion. Nevertheless, these voices are important. Reach out to these customer groups with the help of our invitation and reminder functions – this way, you won’t miss out on these valuable promotional messengers.
