Write a Review Day
Have a suggestion, opinion, or thought about a product or restaurant or hotel? You want to share your opinion with a wider audience? This is the best day to share your opinions with the world by writing a review!
As a reminder, Write a Review Day was established to remind people that reviews and sharing recommendations can have the power to improve their lives and protect them. Each review gives readers important information that helps them make informed decisions, whether they are the good, bad, or somewhere in between.
People are more likely to turn to online friends for advice and help than ever. Write a Review Day is the ideal day to engage with reviews online.
You can make informed decisions in the travel and hospitality industry by reading authentic reviews. Both positive and constructive reviews are equally important in validating a decision, or protecting the consumer from making mistakes.
It’s easy to give kudos to those who go above and beyond to help others.
Potential buyers, tourists, and diners can make informed choices about experiences by sharing reviews honestly and fairly. This is particularly important for tourists and travelers who are traveling in unfamiliar areas. A review can help you make a decision on the best hotel or guide you in the right direction.
In 1999, the first online product reviews appeared on a handful of websites such as eBay. In 2000, Tripadvisor was established as the first’social travel website’. It has grown to be the most popular in the world. It started with travelers leaving reviews about hotels and others reading them to aid in decision making.
Other review sites for restaurants and travel have been created since then, such as Yelp and Google. You can also leave reviews on sites that the person has confirmed bookings with such as Booking.com and OpenTable.
Write a Review Day was founded in 2022 by Tripadvisor. Its purpose is to assist people with better travel and dining decisions, and to give the tourism and hospitality industries some much-needed positive vibes. Over 350,000 businesses closed worldwide between March 2020-2022, as a result the COVID-19 pandemic.
Businesses can prosper by helping local diners, buyers of products, and travelers around the world to make better choices. They will be able to provide the food, stay, merchandise, and activities that people desire and deserve. The Write a Review Day invites travelers to leave reviews to help other travelers navigate the new roads and seas. That’s great news!
