It’s reported that 97 percent of consumers read online reviews, and 40 percent will make a decision after reading just one to three reviews. What’s more, 85 percent of consumers say that they trust online reviews as much as they trust a personal recommendation from a friend or family member, giving reviews a lot of power. Consumers rely on reviews to help them know whether a product, a service, or even certain entertainment is worth the time and the cost.
The weight that consumers give online reviews means that there’s a lot of opportunities to not only help but also to make money by running a review blog. And one of the most fun types of review blogs to run is, without a doubt, a movie review blog.
Whether you’ve started one already or are always getting compliments on your reviews and are considering starting one soon, an important element of a movie review blog is its credibility. Although consumers may rely on online reviews, they need reviews that are honest and credible that they know they can trust. No matter what stage your movie review blog is in, the following tips can help you build up credibility quickly to ensure that the people who look up your reviews are getting sound information, and to ensure that your blog becomes one of the top-ranked for movie reviews.
Publish Reviews Regularly
One of the keys to building credibility as a blogger, no matter what type of blog you run, is posting consistently. Although you may not have the chance to catch every single movie that hits the theaters or watch every single TV show that’s uploaded onto Netflix, making sure you review the big ones and posting reviews regularly is important. By posting every day or consistently every week, you’ll build up reliability and credibility that your followers will love and come to depend on.
