Here are 7 tips for managing your online reputation:

BE QUICK.

  • 42% of consumers expect a response in under an hour.
  • 25% expect a response on the same day.
  • 9% want a response in 5 minutes!

DON’T RUN FROM NEGATIVE REVIEWS. 

  • If you receive a negative review from a couple, don’t make it a series of heated exchanges. First, acknowledge it online and then reach out to the couple behind the scenes to talk things through.

GET PERSONAL.

  • Include personal details when responding to a review.
  • Send a personalized note to every couple that writes you a review.

BE PREPARED. 

  • Have a plan and process in place to address all customer service issues.

KEEP YOUR REVIEWS CURRENT.

  • 44% say a review must be written within 1 month to be relevant.

MAKE TIME FOR THE ASK. 

  • Request a review within three weeks of the wedding date.
  • Make requesting reviews a habit by adding it to your weekly routine.

FEATURE YOUR REVIEW BADGES.

  • You’ve worked hard to get reviews from couples (and win The Knot Best of Weddings!). Make sure to add feature winning badges on your website.
