I see so many people getting terribly upset by negative reviews and it puzzles me a bit.
Sure, I don’t like getting them either but I tend to shrug them off quite easily as I am aware that people can be odd. It’s what makes my favorite hobby of people watching so much fun but I’ll save that for another post I think.
For now, take a look at some of the most amazing sights in the world and some of the negative reviews left about them.
It is also interesting to read negative reviews about places which have nothing to do with the actual place itself such as Messy road leading to it or Too many tourists. Sound familiar? Buyers can leave whatever review they want on the Seller’s profile… Whether their experience was “ruined” by an issue with payment, customer support, their screen brightness being too low/high, their kids spilling food on the TV or whatever else happens that day.
I encourage you to assess any negative review you get and if there is any truth to it then learn from it. If there’s not then just leave a professional response and shrug it off.
The types of Buyers you want are those who would still visit the Grand Canyon as they would disregard the negative reviews it has as being from people who’s advice they would never take anyway.
