Trip Advisor-the good, the bad, the ugly!


What others say about your brand, is ALWAYS more powerful than what you say about it. With the phenomenal growth in online review sites, and the power in what consumers are saying about your brand, online reputation management is critical for businesses. Trip Advisor is the world’s number on travel website – and it is likely that most businesses have already received a review from one of your customers… so it is crucial to monitor feedback and respond where necessary.

Most online review sites are a free tool, they can help your business manage online reputation, continuous improvement and business excellence.
