If you choose to respond to online reviews yourself, here are a few helpful tips.

We recommend that you respond to reviews at least once per week. This shows that you are a legitimate, active company that takes feedback seriously. Working in a few SEO keywords never hurts either.

Just make sure to be sincere and don’t get caught up in online review drama when you receive a negative review.

1. Positive Review Responses

Here are four key points to keep in mind when responding to positive reviews:

  1. Keep your responses simple
  2. Thank them for the feedback
  3. Address the customer by name
  4. Mention the appliance they had repaired

Sample Responses

“Thank you for leaving a review, Jan! We’re glad to hear that your refrigerator repair went well. We appreciate your business.”

“We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review about your washer repair, Eddie. Tim is an awesome technician! Thanks for choosing Appliance Repair Biz.”

If you wish to respond to these reviews that are only a star rating without any written feedback, keep it simple.
“Thanks for leaving a review!”
“We appreciate your feedback.”

2. Negative Review Responses

Here are four key points to keep in mind when responding to negative reviews:

  1. Keep it simple
  2. Stay positive
  3. Don’t be snarky or defensive
  4. Address their specific concerns

Sample Responses

Pricing Complaint – “We’re sorry to hear that you weren’t completely satisfied with the service you received, Karen. We base our fees on national industry standards, taking into account all that goes into providing a repair. We appreciate your business.”

Repair Delay Complaint – “We appreciate your feedback, Charles. Unfortunately, we are experiencing longer shipping times due to the pandemic. We apologize for any inconvenience.”

In this case, it’s probably best to let it be. No response is necessary.
