Imagine a scenario that if you have launched a product and you had some fantastic reviews, but on the other hand there are also some negative reviews. Then would you simply ignore the negative reviews? Or will you respond to them and will find out that where did the mistake happen? Is there any way through which you can satisfy them?

If yes, then work on it. Most businesses simply don’t pay attention to the negative ones and as a result, they lose so many customers.
