How to Deal with negative online reviews

Negative online reviews can have an impact on your business. The increased popularity of social media and review websites means businesses need to be more aware than ever of what customers are saying about them online.

Fortunately, like complaints made in person, negative online reviews don’t have to result in lost business. Instead, turn them into an opportunity to attract more customers.

1 – Respond promptly

The online world operates 24/7 and people expect a quick response. It is important to deal with negative reviews promptly before they escalate and more potential customers read the review.

2 – Be polite and professional

Don’t personally react to a negative review. Respond in a polite, professional manner and don’t blame other people for the problem or create excuses.

3 – Take the issue offline

After acknowledging the problem, offer to handle the matter off-line, out of public view. Provide your email or contact details so you can discuss and resolve the matter.

Once you have been able to resolve the issue, you can then post a public comment on the review website outlining the agreed outcome.

4 – Request that fake or misleading reviews be removed

If you know that reviews are fake or misleading they must be removed.

5 – Encourage your customers to write a review

You can encourage customers who are happy with your product or service to write a review. Be careful not to influence them by asking that they leave only positive reviews.

Better manage online customer reviews by:

  • understanding how review sites work
  • registering with Google Alerts to track mentions of your business
  • registering with review sites, especially any specialist sites for your industry, so you can be alerted when someone posts a review
  • letting customers know you are listed on review sites and providing them with details on how they can post a review
  • sharing the reviews with your staff
