How To Deal With Fake Negative Reviews

How to Deal With Fake Negative Reviews [Infographic]

There’s nothing quite like a good review. When a satisfied customer takes time to sing your praises on your company website, social or third-party platform, it makes everything feel worthwhile. And better than that, it’s likely to encourage further business: 85% of customers will trust an online review just as much as a personal recommendation, and nearly half of all customers need to see at least a 4-star rating before they click ‘Buy.’

But it’s said that if you read all the good reviews, you ought to read the bad ones too. In today’s world of online fakery, that means more than just learning from the feedback you receive – it means staying vigilant against saboteurs and rivals planting fake negative reviews!

What Do You Want To Be Remembered For In Your Business?

Originally published on

Recently, I attended a local networking event, and we had a speed networking element where we’d walk up to another attendee and ask a scripted question. Rather than the easy “what do you do?”-type softball questions, we had to ask much more thought-provoking questions, like “What do you want to be remembered for?”

Push Notifications

Push Notification Tips to Engage Mobile App Users [Infographic]

Push notifications are similar to text messages in the content format and delivery method but instead of an outside sender, push notifications are sent, or “pushed,” from a mobile application installed on the device.

In today’s mobile-first environment the attention span for apps continues to be squeezed, which is why your app must deliver exceptional value to your users.

Depending on your industry, the users of your mobile app might be more receptive to some mobile marketing techniques over others. While the increases in retention rate and engagement from push notifications have been industry agnostic, you will want to understand what you can expect from your industry’s users.
