What’s up guys. Hope your 2018 is going well.
I wanted to get your thoughts on something. I recently started working with a company to help me market my business and get me to the top front page of google. The company is called 411 locals.
So this morning I get an email saying I got 3 new reviews on my business page on google. At first I thought wow that’s awesome! But it turns out they were fake! The company had made up these fake reviews to try and beef up my page. Although a great marketing strategy, but it wasn’t for me.
You see, I started my business from nothing into something. And the reviews I have, I feel like I earned them. And when I saw those fake reviews I felt like I was “cheating the system.” Cheating my customers and lieing to get the business where I want it to be at a faster pace. For some that’s not a big deal. But for me, I want to feel/know that in 10, 20, 30 Year’s down the road, wherever my business is, I earned it.
So how about you guys? If you saw those fake reviews, what would you do?
This is a judgement free zone. If you run your business differently, there’s nothing wrong with that. You get your business to where you want it to be the way you want too. Just wanted to see what you guys would do in the situation.
