How do online reviews impact business?
Over the years, online product and service reviews gained dramatic popularity among the customers around the globe. It has become a common practice to check out the reviews for a product or service before making an order or purchase in order to get genuine impressions from the people who have already tried the item out.
Here are the key points of the 2018 Local Consumer Review Survey survey, conducted by BrightLocal:
- 86% of customers study local businesses reviews.
- A customer needs to read at least 10 reviews before trusting a business provider.
- 91% of customers trust reviews as much as personal recommendations.
- 80% of customers leave reviews for the goods and services they have used.
- 22% of potential customers are discouraged by a single negative review, and three negative comments can drive away up to 60% of potential clients.
Therefore, it is crucial for a modern business to establish a solid digital presence and not only monitor for positive and negative comments, but also encourage their clients to leave reviews. This is where such well-reputed reviews and ratings platforms like Clutch come into play.
What is Clutch?
Clutch is a Washington DC-based independent reviews and ratings firm, founded in 2011. It has a unique and meticulously crafted reviews methodology that differentiates it from the competing business rating companies. Clutch holds an unprecedented credit as the most valid B2B reviews platform, with over 42,000 agencies’ profiles and 22,000 reviews from clients listed at Clutch.co platform.
Clutch.co was created to fill the need for trustworthy business reviews that would not be a sponsored or advertisement-based content, or endorsed in any other way by the agencies themselves. Over the years Clutch analysts developed and perfected an unmatched ranking system, based on industry data, services provided and company portfolio, market focus and personal client feedback. All these metrics are carefully calculated to determine the ultimate rating of an enterprise.
All the Clutch-listed companies are organized in 500+ categories and specific subcategories (by focus, by technology, by industry, by global and US location, etc.), which provides a clear and convenient sitemap for users to search and navigate.

How do Clutch.co reviews work?
Clutch obtains reviews two ways: online and via the phone. For a project with the budget under $25.000, a customer submits their review via an online form, individual for every industry. The submitted form is reviewed by Clutch analysts and then published.
To review projects with the budget over $25.000, a phone interview a customer company representative is required. The interview lasts for 10-20 minutes, is recorded, transcribed and then edited for length and conciseness to be published in the review section.
Over-the-phone customer reviews became the feature that distinguishes Clutch among dozens of review companies and serves as a guarantee of rating objectivity. As a service provider company, you provide to Clutch representatives only general information about your client and the project you worked on. Also, you remain completely unaware of the questions asked in the course of the interview as well as the answers your customer provided. Moreover, a review can be altered or updated in case there are significant changes in the working experience with the company.
The published review looks the following way. On the left, there is the general reviewer information, on the right – the project reference and the summarised information of the work done.
Although each interview is individual, it consists of five necessary sections: Background, Challenge, Solutions, Results and Ratings.
- Background – information about the company and the position of the interviewed person.
- Challenge – overview of the project the company was hired for.
- Solution – description of the work performed by the company.
- Results – how effective was the performed work.
- Ratings – overview of the project performance.
As a result, each project gets a comprehensive and detailed description that helps the potential clients to overview the work already done by the provider and assess their expertise and possible challenges.
