Skragglies Automated Reputation Management

Reviews determine how people perceive a business, whether or not they would buy from it – even it’s visibility in search engines!

Maybe you have a great business, great products and lots of happy customers, but… Other than hoping and praying what can you do to make sure your customers share their positive experiences about your business online? Is reputation management out of your control?

Now, it doesn’t have to be.  Skragglies’ review management platform gives you a simple review funnel process.  It’s easy, and effective.

Happy customers don’t often write reviews.  They never thought to do so, or they simply forgot, or it’s just too difficult.  These are all problems our system can solve!

We automate the tasks of asking, reminding and guiding your customers through completing reviews on the review sites that matter to you.

What about unhappy customers?

Of course things happen, and there are those customers that you’ll simply never please.  Our review funnel process gives your business a second chance to fix any problems and to recover angry customers before they vent online!

The net result is more and better reviews for your business from your real customers.  Finally, giving your business the online reputation it deserves.

Reputation management doesn’t have to be like the wild west, crawling with characters making vague claims about what they do and how they do it. Then charging an arm and a leg for their services.  Our system isn’t pie in the sky.  It monitors your reviews across scores of sites and alerts you whenever reviews are posted. (Even on review sites specific to your industry!)

We capture all of the data and show you exactly how your business is doing with intuitive up to the minute charts and graphs.  It even supports large multi-location operations.  The system works for organizations of any size – and to get more mileage out of each and every positive review your business earns – we can automatically stream your latest and greatest reviews to your website in a way that will give you big SEO benefit!

And, it’s all done for you!

So maybe you can’t control what customers say about you online.  But you can do more than just cross your fingers and hope for the best.

Social Responsibility – Skragglies’ Coding Boot Camp

We made a lot of mistakes building our company, far too many to count, but one thing we did right was put social responsibility into the DNA of who we are from the start.  It was those early discussions before we even filed as an LLC that allow us to take part in things like the “Coding Boot Camp” we helped put on with CNCT Rockford, and Rockford’s 2nd Police District.

It was the same spirit that allowed us to launch our Skragglies Web Designer Scholarship, and to offer free logo’s, websites, brochures, and a ton of other great things to non-profits at no cost.

The “Coding Boot Camp” is a 6 week course, that gets these kids to a point where they know just enough to get started on their journey’s as the next generation of programmers, coders, designers, and developers.  The goal is for these kids to have a real working website they built themselves, which our company will host for free.

As business owners, we always measure how much return we get on the investments we make.  If we spend money or time on something, we like to know it pays off.  Things like this Coding Boot Camp might not bring money in to our business, but the difference we make in other people’s lives is the single best paycheck we could ever get.

All in all, I love working at Skragglies.  I love that we put people before profits.  I love that we measure success not just in dollars, but in the real difference we make in our community.  It’s all in a days work, here at Skragglies.

Watch the video below for more information about this program, and definitely check out CNCT Rockford, and the many other great projects they have going on!
