Consumer Perceptions of Strategies For Responding to Critical Reviews

This paper tests the effectiveness of four strategies of organizations for responding to critical reviews: 1) providing no response, 2) quoting positive aspects of the review, 3) presenting the full text of the review, and 4) inviting consumers to respond to the review, in influencing consumer attitudes and purchase decisions.
