These loyal customers act as catalysts for others to join your train. Aside from business, positive reviews about an individual will make people want to associate with them, whereas negative reviews put people off. It is the same with your business. In this article, we are all about finding ways to increase positive reviews on products and services, to help you drive more traffic. 
  • Make it easy 

Most times, customers don’t even leave any reviews at all because they see it as a herculean task. You can simplify the process for them. This can be done by sending them direct links to their emails asking for their feedback. You can also set your website to request instant reviews once a purchase is made. Periodically reach out to your customers and request these reviews, because, on their own, they will be less likely to go for it. 
  • Maintain a positive social media presence 

This point cannot be over-emphasized. It is important that you constantly engage on social media. This engagement can be with your customers, followers or other accounts, especially similar ones.

  • Follow up 

This extends to more personal messages. More than email links and prompts as discussed in the first point, you can take it a step further to follow up personally via phone calls and text messages. Call your customers up and ask how they perceive your products or services. If positive, these reviews can give you user-generated content which you can broadcast across your digital platforms. 
  • Give incentives 

Depending on how you see this, it could serve as a subtle bribe to convince them to rate your products.

  • Provide excellent customer service 

Companies thrive with great customer service. You are in the business for the sake of your customers. You can’t afford to be mediocre about the services you render to them. Sometimes, your product or service might not be excellent in the grand scheme of things, but your customer service can keep them coming back for more.  Respond professionally to their complaints and concerns. Always follow up with emails and personalized calls and messages. These should get you started on acquiring positive reviews for your business. Good luck! Featured Image Source: THINK NATIVE BLOG
