Online reviews do play a big role in helping customers make buying decisions. It is not only for b2c buying decisions but also influences b2b buying decisions as well. Many businesses check the online reputation and ratings of a business before they sign an agreement with them. This is true for web development companies, call center services, third-party PR and marketing firms and even law firms.
