The first step is to determine if a company review profile already exists for your flooring or home network installation company. This is done by searching for your business on the review website. If there is a profile, there should be an option to claim the review profile. Each review website is different on their claiming process, but it might involve using a company email address or waiting for a postcard to be mailed to the business address.
If your business doesn’t exist, you can then create a new account.
Once you claim or create a new review profile, you can add your business information. This should be the standardized data for your business name, address, phone, description, business hours and photos.
