When was the last time you searched for information about your own company? If the answer to this question is “never” then you are not alone.
Many organisations spend little or no time in researching themselves on the internet.This makes sense on the face of it; what could you possibly learn that you don’t already know?

You should care about online reviews because:
Between 1 and 3 negative online reviews will be enough to deter the majority of shoppers from purchasing a product or service.
70 per cent of consumers say that they trust online reviews.
A recent study has found that just one negative review can cost a business almost 30 customers. Seven in ten consumers will actually change their mind about a product after reading a negative online review.
