The definitive guide for technology vendors on how to conquer enterprise peer reviews, hosted by Destrier's Simon Jones.

    How vendors are using review data as a weapon

    How vendors are using review data as a weapon

    Today we’re focusing on some of the ways that vendors are capitalizing on the huge amounts of data that are generated by customers providing enterprise peer reviews.

    We mentioned before that it’s all about the data. In this episode, we'll show you why.

    With a little bit of analysis, it’s possible for vendors to extract a lot of information from customer reviews such as, which firms are truly their biggest competitors - and which are the competitors to whom they are consistently winning - or losing deals.

    This podcast is for technology vendors getting to grips with how and why sites like G2, Gartner Peer Insights, TrustRadius and PeerSpot are exerting ever influence in the process of helping business buyers in making better, more informed decisions about corporate technology purchases.

    What to do when you get a bad review (hint: don't panic!)

    What to do when you get a bad review (hint: don't panic!)

    Today we’re looking at a question that vendors ask us all the time: what do we do when we get a bad review? This episode is based on the best practice advice developed for the clients we support with peer reviews strategic advisory.

    Vendors often enjoy a brief honeymoon period as they move forward with a reviews campaign. The five-star reviews keep rolling in. That’s because they have approached their very best customers - the ones they knew they could count on to leave a five-star review.

    But that’s not going to last forever. The day will come when a dreaded low-scoring review goes online. It could be a one-star, a two-star, or a three-star review. Or it could even be a four-star where the vendor is damned by faint praise. One thing is for sure, it is important to work through the issue. And by playing your cards right, there is something you can do about it.

    Just like the words on the cover of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, this episode starts with some very direct advice: Don’t panic

    Are enterprise peer review sites really a thing or just a passing fad?

    Are enterprise peer review sites really a thing or just a passing fad?

    Today our focus is on two killer questions. First, are enterprise peer review sites really a thing or just a passing fad, and do they influence buyers? And second, why do buyers even write reviews?
    The story so far: Consumer reviews sites - like Yelp, Trip Advisor and Google - have been established for a while, but on the b2b side, there’s been a slower start.
    That’s changing fast. Sites like G2, TrustRadius and Gartner Peer Insights are exerting more and more influence in the process of helping business buyers to make better, more informed decisions about their corporate technology purchases.
