Responding To Negative Reviews on Review Directories Like Yelp | Ep. #12

responding to negative reviews

Today we’re drinking Founders Breakfast Stout and talking about responding to negative reviews on review directories. Think of review directories like Yelp, Yellow Pages, Foursquare, and Google Pages. This topic isn’t covered much and is so forgotten about! Review directories are everything!

I also learned that if you leave a stout out for about 10 minutes, it opens up the flavors and makes it that much better to drink!
