How do I build up reviews on my listing?

There is the option for people to leave reviews about your business, much like those on other platforms such as Facebook and TripAdvisor. Our reviews can support your wider reputation by appearing in searches and your Google listing.

Sharing the link to your business profile on other marketing platforms such as Facebook and customer newsletters.

Telling your team and other people you know about the page and encouraging them to leave a review by clicking on the ‘write review’ button.

You can also add reviews from other platforms yourself, such as those that have been hand written to you or shared on TripAdvisor. To do this, simply log out of your account, navigate to your SouthHams.com profile as if you were a visitor, press the ‘write review’ button and follow the instructions. Make sure when you do this that you are not logged into your account.

Tip - Don't add more than one review at the same time.

Kevin Mason

Very happy with the amount of customers who contact us through South Hams Directory, we always ask when we are contacted. Seems to be a very popular website locally. Keep up the good work.

We have advertised our cleaning business on this directory for many years. I can genuinely confirm that it has worked wonders. Regular enquiries, some small cleans and larger permanent contracts. Great work, fully recommend to contact Joe and the team.

All I can say is read our reviews from some of our customers who have contacted us through this website. I couldn't ask for anything more. Thank you very much, you do a great job.

Ben Brierley

This is a brilliant website and fantastic value for money! They are constantly updating the infomation on the site and whenever I ask for our details to be amended it is done almost instantly! Thank you for your great customer service and I look forward to many more years working together.

I just wanted to express my thanks for your excellent on line directory, I have been a member for nearly three years now and the results have been fantastic, it’s repaid my subscription 5 times over, at least!

The search engine technology means that I have a great accessible website costing next to nothing but enabling me to reach the generally older and therefore more affluent potential customers that Facebook doesn’t reach, it simply doesn’t have the professional reach for the higher network clients to enable me to work in some fabulous properties.

I love all aspects of my job, no matter how big or small but your service has enabled me to work with some cracking views!

I recommend you to every fledgling small business as it’s excellent value for money, thank you.
