You can't please everybody all of the time - but this well-known local business has just a few online reviews, so this will really impact the number of phone calls and new business. And it's a ROYAL PAIN to deal with bad reviews after the fact. How would you like to insulate your business from this nuisance and even turn it into one of your biggest #marketingwins for 2018? My strategy ensures bad feedback is dealt with before it sees the light of day and facilitates great reviews that feed your marketing. Email ken@livingwaterdigital.com.
