Build, Promote, & Manage Your Online Reputation
- Use our proprietary platform to generate an unlimited, steady stream of new online reviews from your visitor, donor, member, or volunteer on the sites that matter most to you
- Build the ‘know, like, and trust’ factor online with online reviews, the new word-of-mouth
Here’s How the Reputation Platform Works:
Send Automated Review Invites Via Email
It all starts with a new or recent visitor, donor, member, or volunteer. Start by uploading your recent customer contacts into our system (OR let us do it for you – included) and send a fully custom automated email series inviting them to submit feedback about their experience with your company.
Generate Reviews On The Sites That Matter Most To Your Organization
Using our intelligent Review Funnel, your visitors, donors, members, or volunteers are automatically routed to popular 3rd party review sites that matter most to you. They also have the option to write a review on your Whir•Local ™ review engine if they don’t have an account on one of the 3rd party review sites or simply prefer not to publish their full name online for the whole world to see. We give them ultimate flexibility on where they feel comfortable writing a review and make it very easy to do so.
Popular 3rd party review sites include:
- Trip Advisor
- and more …
If a user submits a review on your review engine, a customized follow-up email is sent out immediately to them. This is a great way to say thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and provide an additional marketing touch with optional calls to action. You might consider including things like the following;
- An invitation to “Like” you on Facebook
- Ask for referrals
- … and more
Gathering reviews is one thing, but exponentially powering those reviews by marketing them is another. And that is exactly what we do when one of your customers writes a review on our Whir•Local ™ platform. Once published, your review is syndicated across your social profiles. The result? More reach, likes, comments, engagement, and social proof. You are also quietly sending signals to the search engines, which can improve your search rankings as well. What does this all mean? It means more referrals, more leads, better conversion, and ultimately more customers.
Here are just a few of the ways we can market your positive reviews and reputation;
- Social media sharing options for the reviewer
- Social media syndication to multiple profiles such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Linkedin
- Live review streaming to your website (no more manually copying and pasting reviews on your website or having to contact your webmaster to do so)
- Reviews are individually indexed by search engines
- and more…
Social Media Cover
When somebody visits your social media channels, you only have a few seconds to make a positive impression. It all starts with your cover image. This is your page’s billboard and typically covers 30-50% of the page. It’s a huge part of your visitor’s first impression. So wow them. Don’t waste the opportunity to showcase your brand, reputation, a special offer, or an upcoming event. Using the same branding across all of your media channels is also a great opportunity to build consistency and trust.
As a non-profit partner, we’ve put together a few simple requirements that you’ll need to complete each quarter in exchange for your complimentary access to our Whir•Local platform.
- Use the system
- Provide us with your current logo and several high quality pictures for use on the platform
- Add us as an admin to your social media channels so we can syndicate reviews
