  • Almost 2/3rds of all consumers read reviews on the internet. (Deloitte & Touche)
  • 78% of people trust consumer recommendations above ALL other types of advertising and marketing. (Nielsen Global Online Consumer Survey, 2009)
  • People that read reviews are 30% more likely to purchase. (Coremetrics, 2007)
  • In the US, each star rating increase an independent (non-chain) restaurant has results in a 5-9% increase in revenue (Harvard Business School, Nov 2010)
