So the business with the most positive reviews that are real and relevant usually sees the best results.

By responding, new potential customers can see that you are actively working with unhappy customers and may decide to choose you based on your ability to address an issue promptly.
Q. Do you guarantee all reviews submitted will be posted to review sites?
A. We cannot guarantee reviews will be accepted and posted by review sites. Each has their own terms and conditions that vary with each site.
