  • Distribution of All Reviews Negative reviews play an important role too • A variety of experiences are consistent with real life• You can’t please 100% of your customers 100% of the time
  • If a yelper mentions “good” customer service in a review, they are over 5 times as likely to give a 5 star review rather than a 1 star. Similarly, nearly 70% of “bad” customer service experiences are given a 1 star review and less than 5% are given 5 a star review.Source: Based on Yelp reviews as of April 2012, excluding reviews that were filtered or removed.
