Topic: Handling Customer Reviews


Date: Tuesday 15th June


Time: 10am-12noon


Venue: The Fiddler, Rouse Hill


Speaker: Jane Tweedy, FAQ Business Training

Customer reviews can make or break a small business because customers often check social proof before buying. This usually starts with the prospect checking out your reviews, particularly on Facebook and Google, and when relevant, on specialist sites like TripAdvisor.
But it's not only the ratings themselves that count. It's the way you react to them which makes the biggest reputational impact. In this session, we'll give you tips on how you can generate more reviews for your business, as well as how to handle different types of reviews:
In this workshop, presented by Jane Tweedy, you will learn:


The good
- why you must respond to positive reviews
- how to obtain more reviews
The bad
- handling bad reviews which are unfortunately completely true!
- making light of a one-off bad review


The ugly
- dealing with people who've lost perspective
- handling fake reviews
- handling trolls
- avoid breaking the law when obtaining reviews (and many people do!)
Come along and get the low down on the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to customer reviews from Jane Tweedy – FAQ Business Training.


During the event you can network with like-minded local business mums, with structured, fun networking activities. Bring business cards for your chance to win a “Pitch It!” slot to pitch your business to the Group at our next event.
