There is a perception among some campground owners that encouraging more reviews from their guests is a bad thing. It goes hand in hand with the same sentiment that all online reviews are negative or that no one ever has anything good to say. The truth is that the only people who should be hiding from feedback are those who don’t want to improve.
Did you know that over 10% of your local search ranking on Google is based on the reviews you receive from people who have done business with you? That’s the most significant single ranking factor we know about, and it directly impacts your revenue.
So let’s assume for a minute that you are not in the minority. Let’s assume that you want to encourage more feedback because you know your campground is fantastic. It’s not hard to print up a survey or ask people in person to leave a review. The problem is that most people forget and that printed survey doesn’t go anywhere but your desk.
