Why are customer reviews so important (especially during Covid-19 lockdown)?
The internet has brought all things to our fingertips from buying groceries, booking tickets and holidays.
During this time of lockdown, people will be shopping online for many of their products as well as researching future products to buy once the lockdown restriction eases. Houses, cars and holidays are likely to be on this list.
The internet though has also evolved as a place to read customer reviews, this can help people to determine the services and products they want to buy from people who have already experienced using that company, especially useful during lockdown when people are not as easily able to ‘physically see’ and buy products from shops.
With more than 90% of all customers using online reviews as part of their research at a local and national level, this shows that merely informing a potential customer of the availability of a product or service is no longer enough – consumers want to hear about first hand Customer experiences.
Reviews not only have the power to gain trust, and encourage people to interact with the company but they are also the ideal vehicle for building a relationship between the provider and the consumer, they encourage people to interact with the company, influence customer decisions and strengthen the company’s credibility.
Studies show though that a customer is more likely to leave a review after a negative experience, this could have an extremely detrimental effect on a business, but also should be used as an opportunity to review the Customer Experience and make improvements to service levels.
At David Phillip Estate Agents the Customer Experience is absolutely key to us, particularly as we are a relatively new company in North Leeds.
