Nothing sells your products and services better than a 5-star rating.  For those of you in the real world who are happy with 4 to 5-star rating, you qualify too. Regardless of your results we have a special treat for you.  For a very limited time we are making available our new All-In-One Ratings Widget to you for Free. Blue Social Ratings widgetWe built this widget for all those businesses who spend many hours collecting, prodding and rewarding customers to give them reviews. 

Every ratings source is vital to a business to promote themselves, enhance their reputation and convince the public to buy products and services from them.

In the end, the hope is that potential customers will visit their business listing and see their results.  However, the business listing is but one place that prospects search and find a business.

Why a Social Ratings Widget

Consumers are searching and finding a business’s ratings in a multitude of places, including the business’s own website. To benefit fully from all the ratings sources out there, we’ve created a small, easy to use, web widget which integrates all of these sources into one place.

When a web visitor visits your site with the Ratings Widget they will:

  1. Receive an integrated view of your business ratings, 
  2. See that the results of the ratings are up to date; leaving the visitor with a comfort level that the business is interested in maintaining their ratings over time and
  3. Click on each of the icons and be taken to the actual reviews so they can see for themselves what people are saying.
