Living Water Digital: Recently, "Phil" posted a ONE-STAR review. 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.

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.
