Getting negative feedback on review sites doesn't have to mean bad news for your small business. Anita Campbell explains why negative reviews can help you grow.

Anita: I recently met representatives of the new United (United Airlines + Continental) at a supply chain management event and asked them what they have learned from the history. Have you heard that Dave Carroll (of United Breaks Guitars video) created a customer service site called Gripevine?

The best thing you could do is to take a negative review or constructive feedback from a customer and turn it around and make the dissatisfied customer into an ambassador of your company.

As an example, I wonder if a company like the new United (United Airlines + Continental) has learned from the "United Breaks Guitar"?

Couldn't agree with you more about air travel. And commuter flights, generally necessary for those of us who live in smaller cities, are the worst. :( However, on the subject of negative reviews and complaints made publicly via social media and elsewhere, I think these things can often turn out to be quite positive as a branding exercise. They can allow your company the opportunity to show real customer service by reaching out and trying to make things right.

Hi Martin, I think United did learn something. Of course, air travel is still miserable and consumers have little choice. It would take more than a viral video to fix the enitre airline industry. LOL
