[Vidcast] Wealth Creation Websites – Margaret Lomas, Destiny

Word of Mouth They claim “is the No 1 business review site in Australia. It’s a user-generated directory where people share the experiences they have with businesses – both good and bad. Every day, Word of Mouth helps thousands of people find awesome businesses (and avoid dodgy operators). As well as helping consumers get better service, Word of Mouth also helps good businesses stand out from the crowd and be recognised for providing great service. We all know how powerful a recommendation is, but with our busy lives it’s sometimes hard to have that over-the-fence chat with our neighbours to find out where they get their hair cut or their car serviced. But who doesn’t want to hear about a great new restaurant that’s just opened, a fantastic plumber that won’t rip you off, or a dentist that makes the experience pleasant?”

Product Review They claim “is Australia’s first and most comprehensive consumer opinion site, online since May 2003. We provide a platform where people can rate and review services and products and the shops that sell them. It is consumer response – satisfied or not! On this site you will find real-life experiences and opinions voiced by Australians. We provide our users with the tools to easily find the items they are interested in, read what others have said about them and share their own experiences. We believe consumers shape and change products and are the driving force behind innovation. In addition to the obvious value provided to the consumer, our unbiased user experiences also provide manufacturers and retailers insight into consumer trends.”

Not Good Enough  (NGE) They claim “Is an Australian Customer Complaints & Opinions website operating in Australia and New Zealand – and around the world… [it] is Australia’s largest and longest running online consumer advocacy website. … [with] over 54,000 members that discuss a range of products and services, including retailing, financial services, utilities, airlines, hospitality, telcos, as well as politics and social issues.”

The Checkout (ABC TV consumer affairs satirical show) has a list of resources for consumer complaints/organisations. If you have a bad consumer experience, you could always email your gripe or post a video there on F.U.Tube where you can post your own videos and complain about products.
