Tips for writing great reviews.
Writing great reviews helps others discover the products that are just right for them. Here are a writing few tips:
- Be informative and insightful: Be specific and relevant to the place you're reviewing, and describe what other visitors are likely to experience. Highlight what makes the place special, and try to share something novel and new. From favs to secret sales, reviews should reveal the unique experiences that places offer.
- Keep it real: Be authentic. Review your own experience, and explain why you liked or disliked the place. Try to be as accurate as possible, and include both the positive and negative aspects of your visit.
- Be respectful: Not every experience with a place is going to be perfect. Sometimes you'll want to share negative feedback. Even if you're frustrated, make sure your criticism is constructive. We often use feedback to improve our offerings.
- Reviews not General Commentary: At times certain topic may become the subject of larger public debate or conversation due to recent news coverage or current events.
