Should I ask my customers to write reviews on Findin9ja?
We discourage business owners from asking their customers to write reviews. For one thing, most businesses tend to ask their happiest customers to write reviews, not the unhappy ones. These self-selected reviews tell only part of the story, and we don not think that is fair to consumers. We would rather hear from members of the Findin9ja community who are inspired to talk about their experiences without a business owner's encouragement.
Your best bet to get high quality and unbiased reviews about your business is to provide a memorable and amazing customer experience -- it has nothing to do with asking your customers to post on Findin9ja.
Also, it should go without saying, that offering compensation or incentives in exchange for reviews is a violation of our policies and we have programs in place to protect consumers from such activities.
