Online reviews matter.

Your potential customers are visiting, and trusting, online review sites more and more, and it’s how they’re deciding whether to head to your place or the guy up the street.
According to BrightLocal’s Local Consumer Review Survey of 2017, 97% of consumers read online reviews for local businesses, and 73% of consumers trust that business more if they have positive reviews.

And these people are ready to give you their money. According to a Nielsen survey, 79% of these people plan to make a purchase within the week.

Charles Asselbeye, of Local Joe Cafe in Hawaii, says this:

“We’ve had people from as far as the North Shore come over and try out the machine, we’ve been featured in 3 different magazines who were attracted to the Ripples; Ripples has been really helpful in spreading the word about our shop. When people see the Ripples it just adds another dimension to the whole experience. We’ve had really great Yelp reviews.”

And his customers agree:

As a barista at Tierra Mia Cafe back home in SF, I really had to check out the coffee places here in Hawaii and I am so glad that I was able to find this place and add it into my itinerary for my first visit to Hawaii as well. The employees were super nice and the designs they make are so awesome! It made me even more happy when I found out they can do designs on cold drinks as well! I absolutely loved this place and recommend this place to be YOUR Coffee place in all of Honolulu!
