Green Industry Reputation Marketing & Management Platform One Of Ten Award Recipients For the 2015 Show
Portland, Oregon – Ten products were awarded with the Retailers’ Choice Awards™ at the 2015 Farwest Show, August 27-29, in Portland, Oregon, and ReviewSprout.com was honored to be one of them.
The Retailers’ Choice Awards™ recognizes new product introductions that are available to garden centers. While most of the focus is on live goods or hard goods that Garden Centers can sell to their customers, ReviewSprout.com captured the attention of the organizing panel as an innovative service that can assist garden centers in their marketing efforts. The organizing panel was led by Sid Raisch, a service provider to The Garden Center Group.
“ReviewSprout.com is a new and powerful tool for managing a garden center’s online reputation,” said Tom Kegley, owner, Tom Kegley Communications, and marketing service provider to The Garden Center Group. “It’s a comprehensive approach to building, promoting, and managing reputation. ReviewSprout.com coordinates and maximizes online marketing in ways that build and protect a garden center’s most valuable asset- its brand.”
“In today’s digital marketplace, a local garden center’s online presence and reputation is more important than ever,” stated Tim Fahndrich, founder of ReviewSprout.com. “Consumers are making almost instant decisions of where to shop based on search visibility, online reviews, social media engagement, and mobile accessibility. ReviewSprout.com assists garden centers by helping them get found and stand out above the competition. We are thrilled to receive the Retailers’ Choice Awards™ from The Garden Center Group.“
ReviewSprout.com uses a proprietary system to proactively gather feedback and reviews from customers and turn those reviews into a marketing asset. Using the concept of what the company calls a Reputation Marketing Power Wheel, it facilitates the entire process beginning with a new or recent customer transaction all the way through the generation of new leads who in turn become new customers, and the process starts all over again. The platform is the only reputation marketing and management system designed specifically for the yard, garden, and patio industry.
