Anyone who occasionally shop online will recognize how important reviews can be when choosing a product or company. Especially, but not exclusively, hospitality businesses are increasingly dependent on their online image. A series of excellent or destructive reviews can be the future of a newly opened brasserie make or break. NederlandReview.nl has been cleverly responding to this since 2015 and has an ambitious goal: reliable, objective reviews of all companies in the Netherlands. But is that a bit successful? And should you register your own company on NederlandReview.nl? We figured it out for you.
Review services for entrepreneurs
Especially for starting entrepreneurs - in virtually every industry - satisfied customers are worth gold if they express their positive opinion online. It therefore sounds tempting to try to be present as much as possible on sites like Netherlands Review.nl. Via Google and Facebook You can of course also receive reviews and try to collect them, but such platforms are not primarily intended to exchange customer experiences. NederlandReview is that and also offers some extra services for entrepreneurs:
- For example, once your company has registered, you can widget that you can post on your own site. The average rating and the most recent reviews of your company are displayed in the widget. In this way you create a positive image on the website of your own company, without falling into a we-of-toilet-duck story. Visitors can click on the reviews and see that you have not posted them yourself, but that these are regular consumers who have left their opinion.
- A second, very handy service van NederlandReview is the proactive pursuit of customer experiences. Once your company has registered, NederlandReview will approach your customers after they have made a purchase with you. They do this at the right time - not too short after their purchase, but also not too long - and ask for an objective judgment. In this way you will receive more, hopefully positive, reviews. We do not have to explain to you that more positive reviews lead directly to more sales. Nice service!
- Own company page. NederlandReview collects all the reviews of your company for you in one review business page on their site, specifically dedicated to your company. By means of a strong piece of SEO, they also ensure that this page scores high in the Google ranking. Potential customers can easily find this.
Objective and user-friendly
NederlandReview.nl is one dedicated review site where you can not order anything. That distinguishes it from sites like Tripadvisor or a product review Bol.com. NederlandReview looks very objective and has no interest in a positive or negative score from a company.
In addition, as a visitor to NederlandReview.nl it is very easy to compare and compare different brands or companies in a certain industry. The site therefore excels in ease of use. And, super-relevant for companies that are sometimes wrongly blamed by consumers or even competitors: reviews they don't trust go off. With email confirmations and IP address verification, the origin of a review is traced.
Certainly interesting for SMEs and freelancers
Whether a registration at NederlandReview is interesting for your company depends on it. The number of reviews on the website is currently somewhat disappointing. After all, the site has only been around for a few years and large, well-known companies often only have dozens of reviews, where you would expect hundreds of reviews.
That is why it is mainly small companies that benefit from the services of NederlandReview: you start proactively collecting reviews and a small number of reviews already meet expectations. Moreover, the services of NederlandReview.nl are completely free, so you can never be bothered. And to be honest, the service provided as described above is worth a lot more than a simple star system such as, for example Google that owns it.
