  1. Shipping cost and speed is NEVER a concern of my clients.
    If it takes 3 weeks, they’re happy to wait…makes it special……

  2. “Half of consumers say they won’t shop at a small business if they have negative online reviews.”
    But they’ll go to Amazon and get the worst service possible? or another mega-corp that has horrendous reviews? Most reviews are opinions and not fact, keep that in mind.

    Small businesses must face up to the fact that American consumers are some of the worlds worse. Always exceeding the customers expectation is just one of many ways to combat this.

    1. I think that’s actually too broad a statement. They should have been more specific about how people rate a seller. I don’t buy from sellers with negative online reviews, either, but only if they have a high ratio of them compared to positive reviews — and what is high to me might not be high to someone else. It also depends on what is actually said in those reviews.

      For experienced shoppers, which are the ideal customer base in the eyes of most businesses, they know there are far too many variables to consider when choosing to do business with someone online.
