How can I trust the reviewers?
The main advantage of our directory is the GlobalNet community. We display a reviewer’s name, title, and company for most reviewers which provides you the trust and confirmation the review is legitimate. Any questions to the legitimacy of a review are immediately evaluated by the team at VentureOutsource.com who makes contact with the reviewer and validates the experience represented in the review. For more, see Review Guidelines.
Why are you offering this service?
Our mission is to help simplify finding potentially suitable providers, products and services for consideration and to help decision makers find the services and resources that best fit their needs. Choosing providers, products or services can be one of the most important decisions a professional or organization may make, and we know the right fit can be different for each person or organization. The more information we can provide to help inform during the evaluation and selection process, the better it is for everyone, including the provider. Ratings and reviews can be invaluable to others with similar needs and preferences. Customer testimonials are helpful to providers as well.
As a provider or owner, why would I want a customer or their colleague(s) to review and rate my company, product or services?
Ratings and reviews can help you acquire new customers by serving as endorsements or referrals, and / or they can help you further improve your services by serving as a feedback mechanism. (Note: Providers are able to post responses to reviews of their services on the site.) Great providers will flourish with this feature, and they’ll grow their businesses. In fact, we’ve seen that listings with ratings and reviews can increase the customer conversion rate two to three times as much as provider listings in the B2B directory without ratings and reviews.
My company is not listed. How do I get my company listed?
You can submit your company here.
Your information will be evaluated by our editors. Simply submitting your company does not guarantee inclusion. The final decision is subjective on the part of VentureOutsource.com.
Do you only list providers who pay?
No. Our directory lists all appropriate providers, products, services with our goal being to make the directory as robust and complete as possible for users.
As a provider or company owner, how can I get a customer to review and rate my company, product or services?
There are a variety of ways for you to encourage ratings and reviews. For example, you could:
- E-mail a review request to your customers and their colleagues, including a direct link to your provider listing on VentureOutsource.com.
- Post or distribute marketing materials encouraging customers to rate and review your organization, product or services on VentureOutsource.com.
- Share your VentureOutsource.com listing page with your social communities on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
Can anyone review a company, product or service?
No. Reviews can only be written by GlobalNet members in OEM and/or supplier (non-provider) companies with titles such as COO, CPO, CFO, VP of operations, procurement, manufacturing, supply chain, finance, or director or manager of supplier or vendor management, financial analyst, and similar titles. For more, see Review Guidelines.
What are the general guidelines for an acceptable review?
A review must indicate the nature of the reviewer’s experience with the provider and the reviewer must have firsthand experience with the listed provider, product or service being reviewed. For more, see Review Guidelines.
As a provider or company owner, may I delete reviews of my company, product or services? What if I don’t like a review that has been posted to my listing page? How may I dispute reviews?
No. Reviews cannot be deleted by the provider. If you feel a review of your company, product or services is inaccurate, unjust, or not meeting review policies and guidelines, you can email us at insight[at]ventureoutsource[dot]com. When you dispute a review, it is investigated and we will then follow up with you as needed to gather more information and share the moderation decision.
Why do some listings contain more information such as video, images, additional wording, numerous hyperlinks, and resources?
Customers can select to enhance their listing and add relevant content and resources to encourage our users explore the company, product or services in more detail. We coordinate with listed companies to ensure such enhancements to a listing are not overly self-promotional.
