Not registered with Trustpilot? Sign up for an account so you can review companies and provide people with honest, genuine feedback about your buying or service experiences.
If you can’t find a company on Trustpilot, don’t worry! You can still review them. Create a new company profile page and be the first person to review a business.
Reviews on Trustpilot shouldn’t contain information that identifies people — such as names, phone numbers or addresses. Please note that name abbreviations, initials, describing a person’s physical characteristics or referring to their unique job title (such as CEO, owner, receptionist) may also lead to a person being identified and shouldn’t be used in your review. We also don’t allow reviewers to use their review to promote other companies. For example, the author of this review could be asked to edit it:
Freedom of speech gives you the right to express yourself, but there’s a line between appropriate and inappropriate. At the extreme end, the law prohibits defamatory statements. This includes accusatory statements that are untrue or not yet proven to be true.
If you want to generate more positive reviews, it helps to know what an excellent review really looks like. You might be thinking, “Duh, I know this already, people say nice things about my business.”
The highs-and-lows of customer feedback are all too real. The problem is that most businesses focus on the former.

When you are job searching, it’s important to read company reviews to get the inside scoop on the organization. Company reviews are written by current and former employees, and provide useful details about a company. Reviews provide information on the company culture, the managers, the hiring process, salaries, and more. Company reviews and ratings are available for just about every major company and many smaller employers.

Finally, the one place where you have total and utter control: your website. It’s an excellent place to publicize reviews you receive (perhaps embed some of those tweets you favorited?) You could carve out a section of your website dedicated just to reviews and testimonials, and even include a form so happy customers can submit their unsolicited reviews. But if you’re actively campaigning for positive online reviews and you encounter happy customers who want to leave you a positive review but don’t have accounts on sites like Yelp, Angie’s List, or Google, it’s handy to have a place on your website to publish their kind words. Consider adding testimonials to landing pages and product pages, too.
