Reviews are important!
Customer reviews are important because you can get meaningful insights about the service you provide and how to improve it.
Moreover, your potential customers can also see what they can expect when they become actual customers.
Getting positive reviews about your business is important, but it’s also important that you reply to these reviews. It doesn’t matter if the review is good, bad or just OK, you want to make sure that you reply to each and every one of them. It shows your customers and potential customers that you care about what they think and care about the service you provide.
If you respond to at least 50% of your reviews, you can grow the number of booking enquiries you get by 24%. More enquiries means more bookings.
TripAdvisor found that you can increase your occupancy rates by as much as 7% if you reply to all your online reviews. People like to see that you care about customer services.
The more you reply to reviews, the more potential customers will engage with your business. If you’re engaging with your customers, you can sell more!
If you’re active on your review sites, it encourages your guests to leave reviews about your business. If you’re doing a good job, then you want the world to know about it!
It's time consuming to reply to reviews...
The person who interacts with your customers is the best person to reply to reviews, but we know you’re busy! Too busy to reply to every review you get. That’s why we’ll do it for you.
We reply to 100s of reviews each week within 3 working days of receiving the review.
We make sure that you’ve got a 100% review reply score across all websites including TripAdvisor, Google, Facebook, Yelp, Booking.com and anywhere else you get a review.
We don’t copy and paste reviews over and over again. Each review is personal to the reviewer, addresses the points raised and is a professional response.
Replying to reviews is your window to the world. It’s not good enough to say “thanks for enjoying your meal”, instead tell them about the magnificent menu you have and why it’s the best food in town!
If reviews are mentioning a recent renovation or some work you’re doing on your business, tell them that the work has now been completed. Anyone reading the reviews, will see that you’ve got a newly renovated business!
Oh, no. I got a bad review...
Bad reviews are not the end of the world. In some cases, they are a fair reflection of the service a guest received. It gives you the opportunity to make amends. You can offer a refund or a free return visit.
Explain what went wrong and how you fixed it as other people will be reading these too.
Sometimes, however, the review is unfair or it’s a fake review left by a competitor. We’ll investigate it and try to get it removed. We can’t remove all bad reviews, but we do have a good success rate.
Encouraging customer reviews is easy...
We work with clients to help them encourage their customers to leave more online reviews.
People are quick to review businesses when they’ve had a bad experience, but not as fast when it’s been a good experience.
