The Top 5 Star Awards in Every Major City

Congratulations on your   "5 Star Award"  and Rating!

If you want to get the most out of your award and bring a wave of new business to your business we have a few suggestions and we are experts!

 

 

 

 

Calendar Magazine, the National Mobile Directory of Top-Rated Businesses has given your business a prestigious 5 Star Rating! What is the real value of Star ratings?

 

Entrepreneur.com Research shows Star Ratings matter just as much as (If Not More Than) online reviews. In his study “Reviews, Reputation, and Revenue: Harvard Business School researcher Michael Luca found that even a 1-star improvement translated to anywhere from a 5 to 9 percent swing on revenues. Furthermore, local and independent restaurants were more affected by diner reviews and star ratings than chain restaurants.

 

Two Berkeley economists, meanwhile, discovered that the tiniest rating change, a half-star improvement makes it 30 to 49 percent more likely that a restaurant will sell out its seats during peak hours.

 

We are all familiar with J.D. Powers Awards but have you ever gone to their website? Well, no one we know does yet the power of their awards is seen everywhere! Why? Simply, because the companies that receive awards most often add a message to their advertising stating that they have  the award for one reason, it works! You should do the same!

 

A Five Star Award gives consumers confidence. It symbolizes that a business brings quality to their customers. When Calendar Magazine's Five Star Award is displayed has the same effect. 

 

Calendar Magazine's goal is to show the massive number of mobile users the best of the best events, attractions, restaurants, hotels and resorts for major cities in a simple, and effective mobile display. As part of that effort, we research to find "the best of the best" in each city and they receive our Five Star Award.

Just how valuable is a 5 Star Rating on mobile?

We all know that the mobile phone is an intrinsic part of our daily lives. In fact, according to Meeker’s 2015 Internet Trends report, mobile phones not only have a 73% global penetration but they are now used more often to access the Internet than traditional computers.

 

Mobile Technology Fact Sheet Highlights of the Pew Internet Project’s research related to mobile technology states... Today nearly two-thirds of Americans own a smartphone, and rely to a high degree on a smartphone for accessing online services and information — either because they lack broadband at home, or because they have few options for online access other than their cell phone. Almost every person in the USA and tourists to the USA rely on their mobile phone to find information and services. 

 

Smartphone usage has been on a tear as of late. Nearly three-quarters of Americans check their mobile phones at least once per hour, according to a Gallup survey.  Almost all – 90 percent – of that mobile-phone time is now devoted to using apps, analysis reveals. Americans now spend more time looking at their mobile phones than they do watching television. 

 

It is undeniable that mobile is not only the future but actually the present! Your business needs to be effective with mobile today or risk losing your business. Mobile is unlike other forms of advertising. Extensive research shows you have just seconds to engage interest on mobile. Decisions are often made in seconds, not minutes.  Calendar Magazine's format, is designed to provide a simple and efficient mobile experience.

 

Customers know that they begin their search knowing that they are searching the "Best of the Best" and the 5 Star Award Rating confirms that in seconds and build confidence. Then they can reach that business directly with just a click or two, ensuring a positive mobile engagement.
