Site Features Encourage Interaction Between Businesses and Their Customers
CHICAGO, Oct. 19, 2010 — Its slogan says it all: “Where businesses and customers mingle.” Yet this isn’t a shopping mall or department store chain or corner coffeehouse. Actually, it’s all this and more – but it’s all online.
It’s SomeReview.com, and it’s “social media to the max,” says CEO Dare Ajala. The site is designed as a one-stop shop for both businesses and consumers. “It’s the next best thing to being there, and it’s an invaluable tool for building businesses – and customer relationships.”
SomeReview.com is a turnkey application that makes businesses, their products and their executives more accessible to the public. According to a report titled “Socializing Your CEO: From (Un)Social to Social,” released this month by PR firm Weber Shandwick, 64 percent of CEOs are not using social media to engage with the public. The study also found that most businesses stayed away from social media because there isn’t one out there good enough to meet their basic business needs. Well, now there’s one.
According to Dare, “We wanted to create a place where businesses and customers can easily locate each other and do business. The way SomeReview.com is set up makes it easy for us to build applications upon applications into the system to enhance the flow of communication between businesses and customers, current or potential.”

A 2010 Social Shopping Study, conducted by e-tailing group PowerReviews, revealed that product reviews continue to play a central role in online shopping behavior. The findings suggest that product reviews save time, satisfy the thirst for knowledge about products, and provide enough confirmation that the person will make the correct purchase decision. When customers are able to see products in demand, they just must have it.
Dare explains further that SomeReview.com goes beyond just having products and services displayed for customers to see. Businesses can send targeted messages to customers who have subscribed to news feeds or, as the site cleverly calls it, “Getting the Gist.”
SomeReview.com was created by Eczell Corp., which specializes in connecting businesses and customers via technology. The company is already developing new features to enhance the online experience for both businesses and consumers.
