Why use our service?
Find out why Real Word of Mouth is the best way to get recommendations and reviews for businesses and services.
We help you get recommendations from people you know and
already trust. That alone is a huge time saver. When searching
the web and reading recommendations from strangers, it's hard
work and takes time to read hundreds of reviews, figure out who
to trust and understand their biases or perhaps hidden agenda.
On Real Word of Mouth, there are no anonymous recommendations
Friends do far more than save you time.
Friends help you find the right service for your needs,
style and how you like things done. Even among friends,
not all recommendations are equal. You know which friends share your values,
who is an expert on various subjects (professionally or as a hobby),
and whose tastes and budgets are most like yours.
And your friends know you - they will know which businesses and services
could be a good fit for you.
You don't need millions of recommendations to make a decision or solve a problem -
you need the right recommendations... from people you know.
What you say in private among friends - the real "scoop" - can be quite
different from what you might say publicly to strangers.
