Word of mouth referrals are among the most important ways that small businesses gain customers and make more money.
And with the power of social media to connect people, word of mouth referrals have the potential to work at a scale much larger than ever before.
The problem is that until now, nobody has figured out how to make this enormous potential work for small businesses.
RelyCircle (https://relycircle.biz/) is the first social media community specifically designed to drive traffic and revenue to small businesses through word of mouth referrals, and reward the customers who help make that happen.
Read on to find out how else RelyCircle differs from other social media communities, and why it’s so much better for small businesses and their customers.
Recommendations are Better Than Reviews
Most websites that allow customers to weigh in on the businesses they’ve visited use a star rating and review system. And while reviews have their place, RelyCircle’s recommendation system is better for both businesses and customers.
Reviews are Often Skewed One Way or Another
People are far more likely to post a review on a traditional review site when they’re dissatisfied. This means that many businesses have a review score that is more negative than their services deserve.
On top of this, customers give more weight to negative reviews than positive ones when making a decision about whether or not to visit a business, so the negative effect on businesses is compounded.
RelyCircle’s recommendation system ensures that only verified customers can make recommendations for businesses they’ve actually purchased from.
No Upfront Costs
RelyCircle is the only social platform where you can market your business to potential customers without paying a penny upfront.
RelyCircle harnesses the power of positive word of mouth by rewarding your customers when their referrals on our social network turn into new sales for your business.
It’s totally free to register and list your business, and RelyCircle even advertises for you at no cost. The only time you pay is when a customer who was referred to you on RelyCircle buys something from your business, at which point you pay the referral fee that YOU set.
Free Leads Through Direct In-App Messaging
RelyCircle allows customers to contact you directly through the mobile app to ask questions or get quotes. This means more customer contact and more leads for your business.
