Checking references on professional painters is a basic responsibility of the Northern Virginia homeowner before they make a decision on which residential painting contractor to go with for their exterior or interior painting project. But reference checking has taken on a relatively new dimension in the past five years. It seems like there is a “connected” component to every part of life today, and online reviews are just another manifestation of that fact.
There are online review sites for everything from painters to proctologists to pastors and every other product or service provider. Trust in these sites used to be pretty much nonexistent because they were loaded with fake, often paid for reviews to promote a business.
But the times they are a-changin’, or it looks that way at least. According to Forbes in a 2016 survey, 84% of people surveyed said they trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations. That’s hard to believe, but there are numerous other surveys that say the same thing.
That said, what do you think?
