Handling Negative Reviews is something every business owner needs to learn how to do and do well. Believe me, it’s not easy, but with some tact you can turn a negative comment or review into a positive for all parties involved.
There are some instances that the negative reviews are warranted and other times they are unnecessary.
The prime responsibility for any digital marketing manager, business owner, web developer etc. is handling the comments with grace and resolution. In this episode of The New Marketing Show, Kevin and Greg discuss handling bad reviews, haters, trolls and online hate. Greg also revisits his appearance on Gordon Ramsey’s Kitchen Nightmares at Amy’s Baking Company in Scottsdale, AZ and how that debacle got started.
