If you’ve reviewed automotive reputation management solutions in the past or currently have one in action, there’s a good chance you’ve been shown the “benefits” of having a two-step solicitation process. This is a big mistake.
The two-step process sends your customers a survey that attempts to understand their sentiment. If the sentiment is positive, they are then sent a follow-up email asking them to leave a public review. If the sentiment is negative, they’re sentÂ a follow-up email asking them to contact the dealership directly. In theory, it sounds like a good idea. In practice, it’s filtering and goes against the terms of service for most review sites.
