Tips for posting reviews on social media

The web, especially social media, can be crowded and tough to stand out. So here are some tips to share the voice of your customer and make your brand stand out in social channels: 

  • Choose the right platform: The first step in sharing your customers’ reviews on social media is choosing the right platform. Different platforms have different audiences, and you want to make sure your review reaches the right people. For example, if you’re a restaurant, you may want to use Instagram, whereas if you’re a B2B company, you may want to use LinkedIn.
  • Highlight the best reviews: Not all reviews should be shared – obviously avoid highlighting negative ones. Only highlight the best and most impactful reviews to share on social media. Look for reviews that mention specific features, benefits, or experiences that set your business apart from the competition. These reviews will help potential customers understand why they should choose your business over others.
  • Use visuals: Visuals are an essential component of social media. Use visuals like photos, videos, or graphics to make your customers’ reviews more engaging and memorable. Including visuals can help your post stand out in a sea of text-based content. Visual search is here and growing, so even better if you can use images that your customers have included with their review! 
  • Tag your customers: When sharing your customers’ reviews, be sure to tag them in the post. It shows that you appreciate their feedback and helps build relationships with your customers. Tagging customers can also increase engagement and reach on social media.
  • Use relevant hashtags: Hashtags are a powerful tool to help your post reach a wider audience. Use relevant hashtags that relate to your business or the review. For example, if you’re a hotel, you may want to use hashtags like #travel, #vacation, or #luxury. Be sure to research popular hashtags in your niche to maximize your reach.
  • Be authentic and transparent: Honesty and transparency are crucial when sharing reviews on social media. Don’t edit or manipulate reviews to make your business look better. Be authentic and transparent about your customers’ experiences, both positive and negative. Customers value honesty, and it can help build trust and credibility for your business.
