Paradigm shift on Review

12

For wide range of industry, review became one of the key factor to decision making on purchase. As a result “no posted Review” doesn’t mean neutral, but “Not popular” with negative feeling. To acquire competitive power, it’s important to get more good review.

Negative Review


But‌ Of course, there may be negative review posted. I believe much company hesitate to deal with reviews because they would not like to touch negative reviews. Advice ďƒ˜ Typical Response is important. We support the hotels on owner response with various materials.

There are still much people don’t know TripAdvisor. I think, at first we should improve visibility, and also keep on improve our translation and message. From next page, I prepared two of suggestions to increase Visibility.
