- “A whopping 93.2% – almost the entire survey sample – used online search to find information about a company or product within the last week. Also within a week’s time:”
- “About 85% are positively influenced by customer reviews. 45% are significantly more likely and 40% are slightly more likely to buy something they hear about via customer reviews.”
