5 Minute Marketing Part 2 Authority

Put yourself in their shoes for a minute. You need to get somebody to help you with something so you hop over to Google for a quick search. Up pops a list of businesses. How do you decide who to call? 

If you’re like me, the first thing you check for are reviews, right? How many people like this business? How recent is the last review? Are there any bad reviews? If so, how did the business respond? 

You narrow my list down based on reviews, then you check out the websites of your top contenders to see if you can see who you’re actually going to be dealing with. 

Does the website make you feel like you can trust the business? Are there any examples of past projects? Wouldn’t you like to actually see a picture of the team – or at least the founder? You also want to verify that they actually serve the area where you live. 

Are they open right now? When should you expect them to get back to you?

In other words, everybody is looking for these five things: 

  • Social proof (reviews)
  • Responsive (they respond to reviews and care what people say)
  • Quality (they do a good job)
  • Trust (can I trust these people in my home?)
  • Integrity (do they treat people fairly?)

When a business checks all those boxes, that’s who you call.
