    1. Where is a good list of service type businesses to copy and paste from?

    I have around 25 different types, but when I go to scrape them from google and yelp around 95% of them don't have reviews, and they other ones do have reviews but they are pretty much all good.

    2. Is it worth just sending a nice looking post card almost to all of these businesses that don't have reviews and saying how much my service can help your businesses get reviews and so on?

    3. I thought about doing restaurants, but 90% of them if not more are chains. Would chain restaurants be interested in ORM at all?

    Thanks.

    1. A business with no reviews is in danger of a single bad review giving them a 1 star listing which immediately will cause customers to go elsewhere. This is an opportunity.

    2. If you're not local, you can try postcards. You won't know until you give it a try, start small and scale if it's effective.

    3. Some chains are locally owned (franchisee's) and others will have local management with advertising budgets. I'm sure there are some restaurants that don't have a local marketing budget, but it's worth contacting them.
