5 Steps to Gaining Online Reviews

It’s no secret that positive online reviews can have a huge impact on your restaurant’s sales and customer retention. More and more, customers are going online first before trying out new restaurants. 

Interested in improving your restaurant’s online reviews? 214 Eats is here to help! 214 Eats provides an end-to-end digital marketing program for restaurants and bars. Follow these 5 steps to improve your restaurant’s online reputation and increase your positive reviews. 

 

1. Just Ask! 

Many people won’t even think to write a review. Have your waiters or cashiers ask customers to write a review while they are checking out. Customers will be able to remember their experience and, don’t worry, research shows around 85% of reviews are positive! 

 

2. Quickly Respond to Negative Reviews

If a negative review shows up, don’t worry, but you will need to address it right away. You don’t want a customer to grow even more angry the longer they have to wait for a reply. Be kind and respectful to the reviewer, and let them know how you can remedy the problem. 

 

3. Highlight Positive Reviews

When someone gives you a glowing review, show it off! Share it on your restaurant’s website or social media page. Potential customers will see it and be more likely to come in and enjoy your restaurant! 

 

4. Utilize Social Media

Many social media websites make it easy for customers to review your restaurant. Utilizing all major social media outlets will bring in more customers and create more reviews. Post links to popular review sites so customers can easily write a review. 

 

5. Simplicity is Key

Make it easy for customers to write a review. If it’s complicated, customers will give up and never finish. Use an online reputation management platform (like 214 Eats!) to make the process easy and simple.

Are Online Reviews Hurting Your Restaurant?

Believe it or not, online reviews make a huge impact on sales and customer retention! According to statistics put out by websitebuilder.org, positive reviews can increase your sales by 18%! However, according to the Harvard Business Review, every unanswered negative online review can cost your restaurant almost $7,000 annually. If I were you, I’d be double checking my online presence right about now. 

Customers rely on feedback from others to decide whether your restaurant is worth their time. Every positive review creates more trust between your restaurant and a potential customer. If other people like it, then surely they will too! 

Negative reviews are something that need to be handled quickly and professionally. For every negative review nearly 25% of potential customers will not eat at your restaurant. Yikes! That percentage increases as the number of negative reviews increase. 

Negative reviews need to be responded to in a helpful and pleasant way. If the review has you fired up, take some time and process then come back and respond. You do not want to add more fuel to the fire by engaging in an argument. Most customers and potential customers won’t write you off if they see that you genuinely care and take the time to address potential problems. 

It’s your job to ensure they like what they see online, but how do you do that? Let us help! 214 Eats is an expert in online restaurant reputation management in Dallas. We want your restaurant to succeed as much as you do!
