    • DO  Respond Publically.  You’re not only responding to the guest who wrote the review - you’re responding to anyone who reads that review.  Keep Tone Light.  Online tone can often be misunderstood, so keep that in mind when typing your response. Keep responses simple. Take longer discussions offline.  Balance Your Response Frequency. Don’t respond to every online review - if you do, it can come off as overbearing. Try responding to every negative review, and perhaps to every 5th positive review. DO NOT Don’t reward or incentivize guests for positive reviews. Review sites like Yelp frown upon and will even remove reviews if they feel they were influenced by incentives to post. Don’t ask Don’t ask for more information, or invite them to Like you on Facebook or join the email club. Keep to the task at hand. Don’t be Combative. Take a deep breath. The last thing you want to do is sound angry . Remember that others are viewing your responses.
