I’m pretty sure I posted pics of multiple clowns in my area that I guess you’d call “competitors”.
I just don’t really care what my competitors are doing. Even the good ones. (I think there’s only 4 good ones)
Anyway… you guys are gonna love this:
Over the last two days I’ve received 4 fake, positive reviews. I responded with this to one with a “competitor” named in it. Check out this ding dong.
I even called the guy this morning to let them know one of his customers put a review on my page by accident because I had no clue they were fake. He told me he operates in Las Vegas, Florida, and a few other states and hires someone to chase reviews and has a team of developers that handles his websites. Cool.
Then I got another fake review with a generic picture of a guy and a woman’s name. I put 2 and 2 together, called my digital marketing lady (@SchertzServicesLLC you’re paying wayyyy too much for yours in your market homie), and she got on the phone with google.
Turns out this dufus at Power Wash KC, who is second in line with reviews behind me, has been paying someone to leave fake reviews.
There are verbatim duplicates, generic pictures, and Kansas City misspelled the exact same way galore. My digital marketing lady and are in tears laughing, reading these reviews and seeing what he’s doing. My face hurts it made me laugh so much.
Oh and a couple of the reviews just end with “good” hahahahaha
Double oh! One of the reviews makes it sound like he’s operating a hotel and another like he’s a pool guy.
