MCR Enhanced Business Listing

As Promised…

A few weeks ago when we rolled out our new Licensing and Credentials section, we promised to also allow you to include even more information about your company on MovingCompanyReviews.com (MCR).

32-facebook 32-twitter 32-googleplusWhen choosing a mover, consumers are looking at a lot of different criteria. Most movers are hyper-aware that consumers are always looking for a good deal. That’s true, but they’re also interested in the softer side: How responsive are you? Do you seem like you care about their business? That’s where your presence on social media sites come into play.

We’ve opened up the ability for you to add more of this important detail on your MCR Business Listing.

Just hop on to your MCR Mover Dashboard, and edit your company profile to find these goodies:

  • Your Facebook page
  • Your Google+ profile
  • Your Twitter page
  • Your Better Business Bureau page
  • Your van line affiliation, if applicable

 

Any one of these items on its own doesn’t tell the whole story. But together, and in conjunction with your MCR Verified Reviews, it lets someone know more about your voice, your authenticity, and frankly… whether or not “anyone’s home”.

So if you pay more attention to your Facebook than your Google+, or you’re more of a Tweeter, feel free to pick and choose which links you want to display. This is your chance to take control of your listing and how you’re perceived.

So, go ahead and login to your MCR Mover Dashboard, and get those shiny new social icons on your profile page.  While you’re there, verify your licenses and supported move distances are correct.

Any questions? Contact us and we will walk you through it, step by step.


How to Attract More Customers

AttractMore

A Free Business Listing allows consumers to research your licensing, request free quotes from you and review your moving company. The best part is, it’s totally free! There are many other moving companies for consumers to choose in your market— how will you stand out from the competition? That’s where we can help.

Here’s how to attract more customers to your Free Business Listing on MovingCompanyReviews.com

 

1. Check Out The Competition In Your Area

  • How many photos have they uploaded?
  • How many recent reviews do they have?
  • What’s their overall rating?
  • Do they respond to reviews?
  • Are their licenses up to date?
  • Have they included social media links?
Now search for your business listing, how does it compare?

 

2. Claim Your Business Listing

Your company may already be listed, and can already be reviewed. You just don’t know it. By claiming your listing you’ll receive email alerts whenever a consumer writes a review or requests a quote from your business.

We recommend using an email address you monitor daily. This is where we will send all notifications and fully detailed quote requests… For free!

3. Drive Customers To Your Business Listing

Use our Free Badges to drive more traffic to your Free Business Listing. Your badge code is located within your Dashboard after signing in to your MCR account.
