76% of all consumers read consumer reviews before making a purchase decision – 3 out of 4! For small business owners that have thrived on word-of-mouth referrals, the trend toward online reviews presents both a threat and an opportunity. Those who ignore the online review space risk falling behind competitors, while those who embrace technology have a chance to take word-of-mouth to a whole new level.
Stik helps local professionals navigate the world of online reviews. We make the process of collecting and showcasing authentic customer reviews as simple as 1-2-3:
- Happy customers review your service
- Stik posts them across the web
- Your business grows via online referrals!

Stik’s online review solution is a uniquely efficient customer acquisition strategy for most small business. In as little as 2 minutes, you can sign in with Facebook or LinkedIn and start requesting reviews. The system suggests high-value reviewers, but remain in total control of who will be asked for a review.
Unlike advertisements, which are expensive and untrusted, or blogging, which is generally time-consuming, low-impact, and quickly forgotten, Stik reviews are free, trusted by consumers, and timeless. Why? All reviews on Stik are connected to Facebook or LinkedIn, so that later readers can quickly recognize their validity and authenticity.
Once you gather reviews on Stik, you never have to do it anywhere else. Our toolset allows you to take reviews anywhere and everywhere that you interact with clients, including:
- Facebook business pages. If you created a Business Page but can’t seem to keep up with it, you’re not alone! 70% of business pages are currently “inactive” – that’s why we made sure that Stik reviews are automatically posted to Pages!
- Facebook profiles. Personal profiles get far more traffic that Pages, but aren’t built for business purposes. Stik is the first company to bring professional reviews to Facebook profiles!
- Your Website. Most Stik users have professional websites, but many are out of date and uninspiring. The Stik review widget will catch customers’ eyes and immediately improve key website metrics including time-on-site and lead form conversion.
- Email. You’re sending hundreds – if not thousands – of emails each week, and we’d bet anything that they are not working as an effective marketing channel for your business. By putting your Stik reviews in your email signature, your clients are reminded each time they hear from you how great you are!
Each of these can be done in just a few minutes, and there’s more! We’ve got lightweight integrations for Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and more added all the time. We even have consultants available for those who would rather delegate the critical task of building online review content.
200,000 mortgage brokers, insurance agents, real estate agents, home contractors, lawyers, financial planners and countless other professionals that are using Stik to turn their word-of-mouth referrals into a commanding online presence.
So don’t wait to grow your business. Put your positive reviews where people will see them!
