What to do if you feel STUCK!

Updated: Apr 27

Nothing bothers me more than when I hear a negative review.

It literally bothers us all!

There are basically two simple ways to handle this:

You never respond in the heat of the moment.

In other words, you step away, If you have trouble not responding just state you are going to meet with your staff to address the issue and will respond back as soon as possible. This will give you time to think.

. . . You do not want to sound generic . . .

. . . or you sound like you're just giving the standard response . . .

. . . or (worst of all), you're not listening.

Respond with empathy.

These two simple ways go together, of course.

Sometimes empathy is so hard to put into words, especially when you are hurt.

So, what's the solution?

The answer could be Chat GPT

The answer is to mix in different content the same way a master chef will spice up a dish with some amazing flavors.

Since I see this all the time, and since I get so many questions from my clients on how to handle this, I came up with the perfect way you can do this easily, without the hassle of having to learn.

P.S. Look, ALL the great players know that the secret to standing out from the crowd is by throwing in and asking for great reviews. Reality is that is not always what we get.

Knowing how to handle trolls and bad reviews makes look and sound like a creative genius.

(And more doable than you would ever realize.)

And it's EASY to do when you're shown exactly what to do.

Chat GPT Prompts:

Acknowledge and Apologize: Start by acknowledging the reviewer's experience and apologizing for any inconvenience or disappointment they faced. It's important to validate their feelings and show that you take their feedback seriously.

Be Specific: Address the specific issues raised in the review. This demonstrates that you've taken the time to understand their concerns and are focused on addressing them directly.

Offer a Solution or Explain: If there's a way to fix the issue, offer a solution. If the problem stemmed from a misunderstanding or something that can't be changed, provide a clear and respectful explanation.

Invite to Discuss Further: Encourage the reviewer to contact you directly (through a private message, email, or phone) to discuss the matter in more detail. This shows a willingness to resolve the issue in a more personalized way.

Express Gratitude: Thank the reviewer for their feedback, regardless of its nature. Feedback is valuable for improvement and shows that you're committed to enhancing your service or product.

Be Professional and Positive: Maintain a positive and professional tone throughout. Avoid defensive language or disputing the customer's experience.

Of course this is only a general outline and helps me put my own words into a better format. This seems very robotic and generic as is. I would take the time to edit this so it sounds more like me, my true sincerity, and personalize it.
