If you patronize new or established Bluffton businesses, you can contribute to their well-being with more than dollars. Writing a review gives viewers new reasons to exit the interstate or walk through the door.

Some of the most prominent places to write reviews are Google, Yelp, Tripadvisor, and Facebook. Here are some tips on writing reviews:

  • Give short and specific pros and cons.
  • Note when you were there and what it was like.
  • Did anything special happen?
  • What were your expectations?
  • If you had a bad experience, don’t rant.
  • Summarize your experience or recommendation.

When was the last time you wrote an online review? Are you a Bluffton booster?
