How To Evaluate A Graphics Company Near Me From Home
1. Review The Graphics Company’s Google My Business (GMB) Listing
Google My Business (GMB) is the foremost online review aggregator on the web, displaying all of the graphics company’s customer feedback right there on the Search Engine Results Page (SERP) for all to see, right at the top of the official company listing. It looks like this:
According to BrightLocal’s Local Consumer Review Survey 2020, consumers are most likely to look at Google My Business for local business reviews, with the average business getting about 1,260 views every month. This consumer confidence in GMB reviews is partly due to the fact that all reviews require “authorship,” which means you need to attach your name to your comment, making it harder to fake. With the exception of serious spam or offensive comments, GMB reviews can’t be touched by the business owner, so consumers know they’re getting real comments.
With all that in mind, we’re proud to say that Universal Signs and Graphics has a perfect 5-star rating, and we encourage you to check out some comments to get an idea of what you can expect working with us.
2. Check The Graphics Company Out On Social Media
Most quality graphics companies take the time to set up social media accounts, which gives prospective buyers a valuable window into the shop’s daily operations, sign skills, and customer care.
For example, if you stop by the Universal Signs and Graphics Facebook page, you can see:
- Pictures of completed custom sign orders to help evaluate our skills and design sensibilities
- 5-star reviews from real people (with real Facebook accounts to back it up) detailing their experiences
- On-screen interactions between previous customers and our staff on the homepage, giving you a feel for our approach to customer care and the kind of relationships we build
You’ll also find all of our contact information and details about store hours.
3. Visit The Graphics Company’s Gallery To See What They Can Do
Recognizing the value of an online showcase, most quality sign shops now go out of their way to create virtual galleries, either on their websites or on their social media channels. For example, you can take a look at our Gallery page, or check out our collection of Facebook photos.
If you can’t find any gallery from the graphics company in question, consider it a red flag.
