SMX Keynote Bill Tancer 800x450It seems nearly everyone consults online review sites before making a purchase. But what do we really know about how online review sites work and how consumers interact with online reviews? How should businesses manage negative online reviews, and what can businesses do to extend the impact of positive remarks?

Bill Tancer has a lot to say on the subject of best practices for dealing with online reviews. Tancer, the New York Times best selling author of Click: What Millions of People Are Doing Online and Why it Matters, spent over a year studying the online review scene to write his latest book, Everyone’s a Critic: Winning Customers in a Review-Driven World (October 2014).

The old adage of ‘The customer is always right’ is now ‘The customer is always reviewing’—and business owners better be prepared. Fortunately, Bill Tancer has created an essential guide to the new world of online reviews. —Danny Sullivan, founding editor, Search Engine Land & Marketing Land

As the General Manager for Global Research at Experian Marketing Services, Bill also leads a team of research analysts that specialize in providing cutting-edge research and insight into consumer behavior, both retail and shopping trends and the application of competitive intelligence.
