Most interesting conclusion for me? That 39 per cent of all local consumers are influenced by positive reviews online. The reviews may not lead to a purchase, but at the very least they will affect how the business is perceived. And as 87 per cent of reviews are always or mainly positive, it's clearly something businesses should be encouraging as part of their engagement strategies.
