| Respond To Your Customers’ CommentsSpend some quality time with your customers in the comment section!|
Show up and make it clear that you are listening to their feedback. That feedback often shows up in comments on social media, reviews on review sites or mentions on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter. Check in on those regularly and comment back when you can.
If someone shares a complaint or bad review, don’t wait too long to publicly acknowledge and then reach out via DM with more follow up. But jump in on the positive comments as well – thank them for sharing a great experience. Positive interactions with a brand online will bring a customer back time and time again.
