While striving for a POSITIVE online reputation, don’t forget about the NEGATIVE experiences occurring every day that you never hear about

Posted by Rachel Larsen on Jul 6, 2016 1:05:03 PM

While this is good news to most storefronts, the problem is that negative feedback, in fact, helps a business improve operations, retain customers, and avoid repeated mistakes. Without knowing what is turning customers away, the result could be more, negatively, powerful than having 5 stars for all of your locations.
