The Power of Online

The Power of Online Reviews By Josh Bass, President, Currituck Chamber of Commerce As the New Year is upon us it is time to start making those resolutions. I hope that one resolution for each of us would be to provide positive feedback and reviews to our local businesses. I think we are all guilty of stating the negative experiences we have, while we keep our positive thoughts to ourselves. Local business would be thrilled to hear it when they have done a great job. You could tell them or better yet go online and post a positive review. As a community we should be raving fans of the good people, places and things we have in our own backyard. Who hasn’t gone into a small locally owned shop where the owner themselves helps you find the perfect item because they know their inventory so well? I am continually proud that when friends from large cities visit me they love the high quality food found in our local restaurants that rival the food they can get in Washington DC or New York. Yet how many of us have gone online to review these local eateries and tell the world how great they are? It’s easy! Go to review sights such as Trip, Google reviews,, and Facebook. It only takes a few minutes but the impact on the community is huge! Positive online reviews help the community as a whole.
