How to Write a Genuinely Good Review

Posted on Blog, Tips February 16, 2018

Whether you’re exploring a new city looking for a good restaurant or searching locally for a reliable air conditioning technician, Yelp, Google Plus and Facebook are great places to read reviews about attractions, restaurants, and dependable services around town. While some reviews provide helpful details and recommendations, others praise or criticize without giving the adequate details that provide valuable information. If you’ve ever wondered how to write a good review, here are some tips to help you out.

Write a Detailed Description

When you write your review, try to imagine what you would want to know about a service or location. By including details, it can help readers discern whether the company is the right choice for them. Make it short, easy to read, and contain all the information a person needs to find the review helpful. You can include anecdotes with specific waitresses or technicians that made your experience outstanding or recommend a specific entree at a restaurant. Non-descriptive words like “good” or “bad” won’t be useful to users looking for ratings and recommendations.

Take Pictures

According to studies, most web users only stay on sites for 10 to 20 seconds, so photos can be a great attention grabber. A picture is worth a thousand words, especially for people who prefer to see a photo of how delicious a burger is then read a paragraph of all the ingredients. Especially with restaurants and service industry work, a great photo can prove the credibility of your rating or description.

Give the Review Immediately

One of the biggest mistakes that reviewers make is that they don’t write the review directly following the experience. While some people can rely on memory to write the review at a later time, most reviewers can’t recall specific, important details which can make or break the value of the review. Over time you may forget how that service really helped you out and went the extra mile or how delicious a specific barista makes your favorite latte. Often times, if you don’t write a review instantly, you’ll forget about it and never get around to it. This is a shame because your review could provide a lot of value to users looking for an honest, reliable recommendation.
