Stand Out In the Crowd: A Webinar
Stand out in the crowd | How to successfully collect hundreds of online reviews
Webinar on March 8, 2017 at 2:00 P.M.
It should be no secret that online reviews are a powerful tool that can influence buyer behavior. In fact, a vast majority of consumers now say they trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations from family and friends. Despite all of that, many businesses are still leaving online reviews to chance, but doing so is a big mistake.
So what can your business do to make sure it is taking control of its online reputation? You should proactively seek feedback from all of your customers in the form of online reviews. Doing so will boost local SEO, improve consumer confidence in your business, and provide you with invaluable insights that will help you improve your operations.
Join us for this presentation to learn first-hand from experts at Podium, such as Vice President of Marketing Nico Dato and Director of Retail Sales Nick Miller, how to harness the power of customer feedback and make the most out of your online reviews. Key takeaways include:
- Why online reviews matter to your business
- How to use online reviews to climb up local search rankings
- Tips and tricks proven to help businesses collect 100s of new reviews

Catching Up With Judi Powers
Before Judi Powers became a jeweler, she had a career in book publishing. She pursued a dream to make jewelry, fueled by her love of telling stories and creating narratives. Upon debuting her fine jewelry collection in 2013, she immediately garnered attention; later that year she won the UncommonGoods Design Challenge.
Powers is now a second-year JCK Las Vegas Rising Star. Her mission in her jewelry design is to create pieces that are luxurious, effortless, timeless, and “as comfortable as your favorite cashmere sweater.” As if you needed another reason to love her jewelry, she uses recycled precious metals and ethically sourced colored gemstones and diamonds!
We caught up with our Rising Star to learn a little bit more about the inspiration behind her designs and her personal style, and got a sneak peek at what she will be revealing when we see her at JCK Las Vegas!
