How to Respond to Reviews From Within Your TRUSTist Account

It is always important to acknowledge the feedback you receive from your customers, whether it is positive or negative. Letting customers know that you appreciate the time they’ve taken to share their comments adds another level to your customer service, and makes the customer feel valued.

This is especially crucial for negative reviews, as when customers feel the need to leave a negative review you are given an opportunity to turn their entire experience around and show any prospective customers how amazing your customer service is. You can find more information on how to handle negative reviews here.
