  1. I have to agree that our reputation is everything. There are multi million dollar companies that have built their companies simply on word of mouth. That is why customer satisfaction is important. However that being said there are also customers and competitors (unsavory granted) who will slander you if not careful it is something I will look into closer.

  2. Thanks for replying! It's true that you need to be very careful that you check reviews. You don't want to have unhappy customers ruin your rep :)
