Online Reviews and Reputation Management Services (ORM)
Bad reviews hurt in more ways than one. Not only does seeing a negative review sting a little bit, but it can also be incredibly damaging to your company and brand. Customers rely heavily on reviews and ratings when shopping for products and services, and a bad review can severely impact how many people are willing to give your business a try. Luckily, trolls and other negative internet users do not have all the power when it comes to your business. If your reputation has been sullied by a bad review or two, there are steps you can take to rectify the situation.
The first thing you can do with a bad review is to respond to it professionally and politely under your business’s profile. This indicates to other potential customers that you do care about your business, and you’ll take steps to make things right if something should go wrong. Many people who see responses to bad reviews understand that in the event that they also have a bad experience, you, as a business owner, will care about it and help them out.
Bury the Review
The burial of a bad review takes a little bit of time and effort, but it’s a great way to neutralize the effects. Promote your rating platforms to your customers and encourage them to leave you a good review. Many people will gladly share their positive experiences if prompted, and many good reviews negate a few bad ones. If future customers see an overwhelming number of good reviews and only a few bad ones, they’ll likely chalk it up to a fluke or a picky customer.
