More attention - even in search engines

More customer contact
By means of short messages, your clientele can rate their experience with you not only quantitatively with stars but also qualitatively with words.
Use these comments as a convenient opportunity to get in touch with your customers. If you react to customer needs, then a feedback culture will develop. Furthermore you'll experience first hand what's inspiring people when it comes to your business.
Campaign for positive comments and stars
Most businesses don't just have happy customers. However, according to a HolidayCheck study, at 82%, most online ratings are positive. Should a customer post a rating that isn't very positive, then the business has the opportunity to also to express itself with a comment.
By engaging in dialogue with the customers, most discrepancies can be cleared up straight away. Yes, you should respond to all the comments on the local.ch company page with at least a thank you. This comes across as amiable and inspires other customers to describe their own positive experiences with you.
Reaction to reviews
As soon as your company has been reviewed, you'll get a message from local.ch in order to react publicly to the praise. We suggest reacting individually and refraining from using cliches.
Take a critical comment as a chance to address questions and also present the perspective of the company. Writing a response shouldn't take more than five minutes.
For those behind the times...
Even on the internet, the only consistent thing is change. Today, users of other websites, such as the travel and gastronomy industry, are used to being able to rate their experience with a company or service. They want to help others make the right decision and they want to express their thanks to the company. So: See the new referral system on local.ch as an opportunity and open up a dialogue with your customers.
