Review reply best practices:
When Replying To Reviews It Is Important To Remember The Following:
• You are replying to not only the person who posted the review, but also other perspective and existing customers of yours who will read your reply. It is often best for your business to always be gracious.
When Replying To Positive Reviews:
• Some businesses forget to reply to positive reviews and only reply to negative reviews, which makes the negative reviews stand out. Be appreciative of your positive reviews and thank your customers...you would do this if you were there with them in person.
• Include something the reviewer mentioned in their review, within your reply.
• Use the reply to invite the reviewer back to your business, and encourage referrals to their friends & family.
When Replying To Negative Reviews:
• If you are upset about the review, it is probably best to wait to reply until you have had a chance to calm down.
• Remain gracious. Replying defensively can become an online argument with the reviewer, which is visible to all of your customers, and prospective customers.
• Provide an opportunity for the reviewer to contact you via email or phone to further discuss their concern.
How do I get a review removed? The negative review is not from a customer?
