Paradigm shift on Review
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.
Plus Positive review
Impression for Purchase
No posted Review No posted Review
Review Collection become to key initiative.
Butâ€Ś 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.
