Four Tips for Responding to Positive Reviews

  1. Thank the customer for their review.

  3. Do a little bit of marketing and mention the product or service the customer used so future customer will see it.
  4. Ask them to do something like come in again or pread the word about your business.

Four Tips for Responding to Negative Reviews

  1. Apologies to the customer for the poor experience and show sympathy.
  2. Do some marketing here as well and mention that this experience is not typical with your business so future customers see how you deal with issues.
  3. Keep your response short and sweet… and do not mention your business name so the review is less likely to show in search results.
