Frequently Asked Questions
Why are reviews and positive testimonials so important?
You’re losing business to your competitors if you aren’t being proactive about leveraging testimonials and social proof in your marketing.
Positive testimonials and social proof helps you stand out from your competition and grow your business. Period.
Because testimonials just click ™ with consumers.
Can I seen an example neighborhood business profile and directory?
Sure. Check out our neighborhood directory for Salem, Oregon, and click on any of the listings.
We’re building an alternative to Yelp, Angie’s List, Home Advisor, and Nextdoor.
How do you help generate more reviews?
We make it easy to generate a steady stream of positive reviews. Here are our two most popular tools:
- Kiosk or ‘Check-in’ Mode: Use our kiosk or ‘check-in’ mode to make it easy to get your customers into your review funnel. Once you capture their contact information, it automatically triggers the Review Invite Email Campaign and optional SMS text message. [See Example]
- Upload Contacts: Upload a contact list and easily ask them for reviews using our automated Review Invite Email Campaign.
Both of these methods drive your customers into your Review Funnel, making it easy to generate a steady stream of positive reviews.
What do you mean by Recommendations?
We’ve built an easy way for you to build a virtual recommendation wall of other places on Whirlocal that you know, like, and trust. This helps build social proof for your business or organization. You can be recommended by unlimited places, and each account level has specific limits on how many businesses you can recommend. [See Example]
What does 'Unlimited Earned Contacts' mean.
Any contact that writes a review or fills out a form on your profile is considered an “Earned” contact and goes into your contact manager. There is no limit to how many you can earn. In contrast, each account level has limits to how many contacts you can upload into your contact manager.
What are the Neighborhood Publishing Tools?
Content is king! We’ve given you the ability to publish blog posts, projects, and special offers. This helps build social proof and can grow your business.
What is a Neighborhood Newsfeed?
Facebook, Linkedin, Instagram, Nextdoor, and other sites all have newsfeeds. The problem is, these newsfeeds are not focused on your local neighborhood. We’ve built hyper-local neighborhood newsfeeds so you can see what is going on in your neighborhood without all the drama and content you don’t need. [See Example]
Can this help me with my social media marketing?
Yes! We’ve developed a proprietary TURBO Content Framework ™ to help you generate content and answer the question of “What do I post?” on my social media channels.
Can I see an example "Community Hub"?
Of course. Here is a “Buy local” community hub that we are running in Salem Oregon to promote Salem area businesses.
What is the affiliate referral program?
As a WhirLocal Affiliate, you earn recurring commissions in two ways;
