It’s a jungle out there. When you’re trying to decide whether a review on a site is real or not, it can be very hard to determine fact from fiction. So how can you find reliable business reviews? Where can you find Nationwide Window reviews that are reliable? Here are 5 resources that you might not yet have scoped out.

Facebook reviews

Browsing through Facebook reviews is always a good place to start your search. For most businesses you will see a fair amount of good comments and a few bad comments, too. Read each carefully, and determine whether the review is appropriate for your needs from the business.

Instagram comments

Instagram is one of the most popular social media apps. For many people, the majority of their communication is spread across Instagram, Snapchat, and WhatsApp. Scroll through the business’s Instagram feed and check out the comments under the pictures. What are the commenters saying about the business, the products? People like to speak their mind on Instagram.

YouTube product review videos

Product reviews on YouTube have exploded over the past few years. This means they can be a great source of quality reviews. However, take note that many of the people reviewing products on YouTube are doing so in part to make money from affiliate links posted in the description. If they give a poor review, then no one will buy them. While it’s okay to sprinkle their content with bad reviews every here and there it doesn’t make sense for them financially to do so.

YouTube comments

These can be more of a goldmine than YouTube reviews for honesty. If commenters have also tried the product reviewed and either agree or disagree with the YouTuber’s opinion, then they are likely to say so and perhaps outline the reasons for doing so too. Drill down into the comments as on YouTube, a lot of them can be fairly useless, but you may be able to find genuine reviews. 

Reddit forums

While there are not so many business and product reviews on Reddit, if you manage to find them, they are often reliable sources. While there are many people on Reddit who like to joke around and be silly (something that the platform has a reputation for), there are also many people who are quietly clever and see Reddit as a platform where they are able to speak their mind and expect to have clever conversation back. If it’s about the business in question, then you’ve got a good source right there.

Finding reliable local business reviews can be like finding a needle in a haystack. However, looking at the business’s social media and overall online presence can give you a good idea of what other people think of the business and its quality of service.
