How to Add Reviews to Your WordPress Website

by | September 10, 2019

In their article on the importance of customer reviews, Forbes, citing a survey made by BrightLocal, claims that as much as 88% of the customers trust online reviews as much as a personal recommendation. The Forbes article continues by stating that only 12% of the population doesn’t read the reviews regularly.

All that means that, whether your business is based entirely on the web, or you just use your website as a business card, you ought to let your clients share their opinion with other clients.
