Customer Relationship

Simple, quick to read and concise, reviews describe customers' experiences, giving future consumers an idea of what they might experience.
Even if they are a goldmine for businesses, the power of customer reviews is often underestimated.

How to manage and use customer reviews

The influence of customer reviews

According to an infography by K-Lya, while 83% of consumers say they no longer trust so-called traditional advertising, 73% say they trust the reviews left by other consumers. At the same time, the rise of review sites and comparators specialized by field of activity has not escaped anyone's notice, offering consumers the opportunity to share, not only with their friends and family, but also on the web, the experience they have had, whether it is good or bad.

Manage your reviews

Analyzing customer feedback is essential to enable the company to improve and best meet the current and future needs of its customers. Upstream, companies must therefore group them together and to do this, they must know the pages and sites (social networks, specialized sites, Google My Business...) on which their consumers are likely to give their opinion.

Negative reviews are a powerful godmine not to be neglected. They are first of all a source of improvement for the company, but they also reassure the consumer on the authenticity of the reviews: 95% of Internet users consider a page with no negative opinion suspicious. In order to control them, companies can set up a customer service to centralize negative reviews and provide a personalized response to disappointed consumers.


Finally, take the time to respond to comments ! Companies responding to at least 32% of the reviews received have a conversion rate of over 80% !
