Start a conversation with your customers. A lot of people forget that when a company writes a review they would like have a conversation with them. So go ahead and pay close attention to any feedback you get from customers, and reply to the best of your ability. Make it your mission to learn everything you can about their needs, and use this information to make your next move more effective, or improve your company as a whole.
