Online reviews can make or break your business. According to Hubspot, 72% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations. In an age when online reviews – on sites like Yelp, ApartmentRatings.com, Google+ Local, Angie’s List, etc. – have proven to increasingly influence offline consumer behavior, what’s a business to do? How do you respond in ways that maximize a glowing review’s word-of-mouse potential, while also understanding the impact that a negative review can make on your bottom line? Do you find that responding to a review fuels an online argument rather than diffuses it?

Join Ansley Sudderth, Social Media Training and Communications Coordinator with For Rent Media Solutions™, as she provides answers to these commonly asked questions. You'll leave this #FRMSChat knowing how to craft a diplomatic response to negative reviews, boost brand advocacy using positive reviews and create calls to action to get residents and prospects alike to review your property.
