    • Why Reputation
      Is Priority One For Growth

      By Mark P. Fisher

       

      According to research, less than 1 out of 10 consumers will buy from you if your star rating is below 4.0.

       

      All marketing efforts will lead a consumer to learn more about a company.

       

      If a consumer discovers a less than 4.0 average rating, all your marketing efforts are driving away 83% of your market.

       

      However, research also shows a one-star increase in rating resulting in a 5% increase in sales.
