Reviews, recommendations, and personal testimonials are at the top of the list when it comes to research and influence in a buyer’s decision process before a purchase is made. In addition to the power of a high-quality and trusted review, the business and revenue generated from such reviews can also be worth millions. In fact, just the mere concept alone of compiling and providing such data for customers has generated billions of dollars in new business.
Sites like Yelp and Google Reviews help individuals find reviews for local restaurants and retail businesses. However, reviews and recommendations aren’t just for products and services. Take LinkedIn for example, which was acquired by Microsoft for $26 billion and is based on that same type of recommendation and review service, but on a more professional level. The game of online reviews, ratings, and recommendations is on that is continually being tweaked time and time again, yet always in demand.
With the way technology and data is rapidly growing and scaling across the internet, is it only a matter of time before everyone has an online review and rating system for themselves? This is something Completed.com wants to make happen. The company was recently featured on TechCrunch, as they are looking to change the way reviews and recommendations are made in the business world today — but also on an individual scale versus product or services, while also being more user friendly and personal.
Since we are all quite familiar with the concept of a site like LinkedIn, you should already have a good understanding of how a site like Completed.com. The difference between the two is where reviews, ratings and personal/professional highlights come into play. Also, profiles and reviews on the site aren’t limited to just business professionals, but everyone.
Besides the obvious of having a site that you can reference to for reviews, personal information, and work history, there are other benefits you may not have considered yet:
