Digital Tourism Scotland and ETAG

Review sites and social media have given rise to a more powerful customer. There’s rarely a week that goes past without reports of customers or ‘lifestyle influencers’ trying to manipulate free stays or reduced bills with threats of negative reviews. And, with so much research pointing to consumer reviews being important sources of customer information, it can be a difficult to know how to respond to customer feedback online.


We welcome you to join us with Dr Jillian Ney (UK’s first Dr of Social Media and Digital Behavioural Scientist) to discuss customer reviews and how to respond to them. Jillian will introduce a new attitude to handle customer feedback and explain how you could actually make more money from your customer reviews.
