Nowadays the buying decision is highly influenced by the review information about the product or service available on the internet. Review information is mostly made up of previous customers sharing their experiences using the product or service on an online platform. People make the use of review information by evaluating what the majority of other customers thinks about the product or service therefore making a decision to place an order or look for the substitute to the product or service. This makes review information key to the sales revenue a company is able to generate on a given time period. Some of the things that a business can do to take advantage of review information are as follows.
When it comes to review information the company should have a proactive approach. This means they should not wait for an external party to be the first to publish review information about their product. Therefore the business employs a qualified writer to publish their own product’s review information. This will make the review information that potential buyers comes across first be positive as it is published by the company. This is usually accomplished by having a blog post on the company’s websites which is easily visible on the home page.
Another way of making the best use of review information is analyzing the written experiences of using the company’s products shared by the customers on various online platforms. Many people are willing to try out a company’s product if they are assured that any problem they face while using it will be promptly addressed. Hence to cater for customers’ feedback efficiently it is necessary to have an employee who is responsible to sending out replies to the feedback. This process will involve a series of public messaging with an angry customer until he or she finally feels that their problem has been fully solved. The reason for the follow up is to make the previous customers have a positive attitude towards the company making them buy again in the future and also recommend the product to other people.
Review information is also key in making product development and innovation decision. The customers’ feedback is a great way of learning about their needs, wants and preferences. Therefore the company is able to understand if the products features are useful to the consumers from their perspective. If not the company should introduce innovation on the product. If customers’ suggestions are not possible to be implemented on the existing product then the business should consider designing a new product. For example customers may request the company to make the product in various shapes and/or colors.
