Reviews Case Study: First National Cairns
About First National Real Estate Cairns Central
A national real estate agents brand, First National, were seeking a competitive advantage to attract more customers for some of their offices. The First National Cairns Central group aimed to boost their online presence by gathering more positive reviews.
Previous research has suggested that:
- 78% of customers trust online reviews before contacting the business
- 64% of customers referred to a real estate agent would read the agents reviews before engaging
First National Cairns lacked online reviews on both Google and Facebook. These are 2 of the most popular web platforms and are often a customer’s first point of reference when searching for social proof online. The most effective way to grow their reviews was by asking their customers for feedback and reviews.
However, collecting and managing the reviews was challenging:
- No automation
- Multiple links to review pages
- Unable to manage poor reviews
- Unable to promote customer reviews on their website
- No central reporting for all reviews and office locations
- No cost effective way to send out review invites via email and SMS
They turned to AddMe Reviews for assistance to improve their online reviews.
