One of the most common questions BNI members ask me is, “how can my business show up higher in a Google search?” Well, one of the first things we advise any business to do is to get more Google and Yelp reviews from your satisfied customers!

If each member in your group reviews with each other that’s 20-40+ reviews for your business.
For the majority of small businesses that will help you to beat out your competition on maps.
You can also leave more than 1 review, now thats 40-80+ potential reviews!
When you are “Googled” what business reputation do they see?
Shoppers today check the Internet before they buy. Your online reviews create a reputation which plays a crucial role in your ability to successfully market your business on the Internet.
