Customer Review Effect On Your Business
Social media and review websites are placing more and more power in the hands of consumers. People listen to each other’s experiences, which means that good or bad reviews will have an influence on your business’s future. Each review contributes to how customers see your brand and products. Often customers who give reviews are the ones most excited about the product or the ones who have been disappointed. If they have had wonderful experiences, that’s great, but bad reviews can be disproportionately damaging. When leaving negative comments people tend to explain everything with a high attention to detail, and this lends further credibility to an already bad review.
The number of people going online before making a purchase, reservation or appointment is growing, so the chances are people will talk about your business in that medium, whatever industry you represent. Many businesses realise this and are now engaging in review management. Knowing what your customers are saying is crucial for your business’s existence, and good reviews will encourage potential customers, create a positive image, help you retain existing customers, and are a great contribution to marketing. Just a single bad review, on the other hand, will drive customers away, create a negative image in the minds of potential customers, and can cause lasting damage to a business.
That’s why constant review monitoring is vital to the development of a good online reputation. The first step to take is understanding what your customers think about your brand, and what online image they have created for your business. Then, create an action plan for online review management. When dealing with online reviews, know your strengths, and understand and plan ahead on the basis of your known weaknesses. You need to have a clear strategy for dealing with negative comments, and a successful plan for the use of your existing assets. Social media channels engage people, and generate more positive feedback.
