This was exciting. I went to go see a customer today to Refinish her hardwood floors and she found us on HGTV.com. I was pleasantly surprised (especially since I hadn't registered on their site...at least as far as I know). Apparently, they now have an option where you can find contractors (or all types) near your zip code.
...And, you can sort the ratings and reviews (which is what this customer did). She told me that even though I was further away, she specifically wanted to meet with me. Here's what she found.
Now, how did this happen? Well apparently all my reviews from Kudzu.com are feeding into this site. How cool is that? It pays to have customers who like you...and give you good reviews. And, it can help you online in more places than one.
This is not the first time that I've seen reviews from one site feed into another. So make sure your customers give you reviews. It can really help. I need to do more of this.
