Did You Know?
The majority of mobile searches (mobile access to the web has surpassed desktop access) are for local businesses and business information. And did you
know that online inaccuracies and unmanaged online reviews can greatly affect your revenue? Instead of sitting idly and letting unknown and unchecked
online problems send customers to your competitors, let BrawnGuard be your eyes and ears online, while actively helping fix detrimental problems.
BrawnGuard Effectively Manages Your Online Reputation
Without checking, do you know exactly where your business is listed online? Do you know if your business information is correct across all online
directories and review websites? Do you know how your online presence stacks up against your competitors and industry standards? Probably not.
This current online marketplace is saturated with listing and review sites like Yelp, FourSquare, Google Business, Bing Places and hundreds of
more. Creating and maintaining accounts with all of these sites can be very time consuming, time that you could spend running your business.
The reality is, going to every site and checking it manually is a huge project, and that’s where BrawnGuard can help. Using BrawnGuard’s Snapshot
tool, a company can analyze their online presence in a matter of minutes. By putting a few pieces of information about your business into the
search tool, a report containing all of your business’s listings and accuracy is generated. Take a look below at the sample report.
We generate this report before you contract with us to show you exactly where, and how we can help your online reputation.
Why Your Online Reputation Matters
Having the correct information about your business across several different platforms is the best way to generate more targeted organic search
traffic to your website.
When a Google search is done, the algorithm scours the internet and uses thousands of variables to find potential accurate results. The more that
your business is listed across the internet with the same exact information, the more votes go towards your website and other listings in your
name to be the top result.
Little differences like your street address being Route 9 on one site and New Loudon Road on other sites (even though they are the same road) could
mean the difference of getting that click through to your profile and not. Nothing turns a potential consumer off of your website or store
front more than finding conflicting information from one search.
BrawnGuard Gets Your Information To Major Data Providers
There are constantly new online directories and review sites being published and used every day. Yesterday the hot new page was Yelp, now Facebook
is getting into the directory and review industry and tomorrow… Who knows?
In theory, you could go and update the top 100 online directories with your correct business information, but what happens when the hot new app
comes out? Just because your online presence is refined and exact at one point in time doesn’t mean it will be safe forever. BrawnGuard takes
your data and pushes it out to the top four data providers in the industry. These providers send their data to directories and review sites
on a consistent basis to ensure that consumers have access to the correct information.
The Importance of Acknowledging & Managing Reviews
88% of consumers trust online recommendations as much as a personal recommendation. Online reviews are the new “word of mouth” advertising. Keeping track of
your average ratings and customer’s experiences can give you insight into new ways to innovate your business.
Responding to reviews, both positive and negative, is also a great way to engage with the customer, build trust and further develop your relationship
with your targeted market. Reviews are a great way to directly connect with a customer and plug your business at the same time.
The consumer feels good they were acknowledged, you feel good because you just got a return customer and showed that you care about your customers
for other potential customers to see.
Brawnguard enables the user to be logged in to all review and listing sites that your business is presented on. This means that all and any activity
on your accounts by users is fed right into one centralized location. You can also respond directly to customer’s reviews right from BrawnGuard.
This is much easier than logging into every site individually, checking for reviews and responding.
In short, BrawnGuard is your one stop destination for managing, fixing and editing your online presence on hundreds of different platforms and sites. This
product will not only present your business in an optimal way, but it ensures that your customers feel cared for and appreciated at the place of your
