improvement companies —"80 percent"— fall in a range where there are mostly positive reviews with some negative reviews. Only the bottom 5 percent, where there will be more than a dozen negative reviews and very few positive reviews, gets punished by prospec- tive clients. "When you go and look at the online re- view world, what you see is a really distrib- uted and diffuse space," Bairstow explains. "You can have five stars on one site and two stars on another site; a smiley face on one, a frown face on another; and in the search results, there looks like there are a ton of re- sults. But this range of ratings from site to site ultimately makes it difficult to tell whether you are a good or bad company." Here some additional online review and reputation management software products worth investigating: • BirdEye Reviews, birdeye.com • Trustpilot, trustpilot.com • Reputation.com, reputation.com • ReviewTrackers, reviewtrackers.com Grade.us | grade.us This company also has a range of services and is designed to be seen as 100 percent your own company's service, which is known as white-labeling.
