The company should also follow up on any review information published by either a customer or another party. When going through other customers’ feedback potential buyers are keen to see the response of the company about the issues raised. This is because customers are likely to change a negative comment to a positive one if the company contacts them by replying to the first negative post and offering assistance. Therefore it is very important to reply in writing to any of the customers’ feedback. For example if a customer had a bad experience the reply should start of by apologizing and then offering an applicable solution to the problem encountered using the product. The reason for the follow up is to make the previous customers have a positive attitude towards the company making them buy again in the future and also recommend the product to other people.
