whirLocal is a reputation marketing system designed to help local businesses build, promote, and monitor their online reputation. In the age of Google, Facebook, and Twitter, customer reviews and recommendations matter more than ever before. Reviews are everywhere!
According to recent studies, consumers look up between 6-10 reviews before making a purchasing decision, and 4 out of 5 consumers have changed their minds about doing business with a company based solely on negative information found online. In addition, 72% of buyers trust online reviews as much as personal word-of-mouth recommendations.
“We’re very excited to work with the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce,” stated Tim Fahndrich, president of thirdRiver Marketing. “The Salem Chamber is a very progressive chamber and is recognized as an industry leader and innovator throughout the country. Partnering with them to provide whirLocal services to their members is a fantastic opportunity for us to help local chamber members in Salem stand out in their online marketing efforts.”
“We’re excited to partner with thirdRiver Marketing to bring this service to our members,” added Jason Brandt, CEO of the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce. “Not only do we fully endorse the whirLocal system, but we also use it ourselves, and know that it can be a powerful tool to help our members in today’s marketplace.”
