Asking for a review in person can be intimidating but it is often the most effective approach, so if the opportunity presents itself, seize it. The easiest scenario would be that of a customer who approaches you with unsolicited praise.
In this case, express your appreciation for their taking the time to provide the feedback, and then make the suggestion.
You might say something like:You: That is so great to hear. And thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. You: You know, those kinds of comments really help prospective customers to feel more confident in choosing us. This will render your conversation ingenuine and you will come off as not really caring about their experience but rather just about getting the review. Get a read on the customer. If they respond positively and offer more information or feedback, continue the conversation.
As it comes to a close, ask them for the review. We love sharing that kind of stuff with potential customers so they can feel more comfortable with choosing us. However, if you have a self-proclaimed satisfied customer (ideally if they express gratitude for your help), this is a great time to ask for a review. Have an email list.
We must be doing something right. Let us know what keeps you coming back for more. Thank you for your recent purchase. We hope you love it. If you do, would you consider posting an online review. This helps us to continue providing great products, and helps potential buyers to make confident decisions. Nothing can make a customer feel quite as appreciated than receiving a personal email from the business owner.
We are constantly striving to provide the ideal experience for our customers, and your input helps us to define that experience.
Involve your employees in the process. Stress the importance of customer reviews to your staff and ask that they send personal emails to customers. Note: Be sure to keep email correspondence short and sweet. Businesses can utilize thank you pages to collect customer reviews. If you enjoyed your shopping experience, tell us (and others) about it.
Reviews help us to not only improve our products and services but also to let others know that we care about delivering the best quality. Let them know by writing a review. Other business owners understand the value of a review, and leaving one on their website or listing may be enough to get one from them without even asking.
However, there are opportunities to ask for reviews from them as well. Smith, I really have enjoyed working with you on this project and value your insight.Sean, United States South and West in Detail, July 2016 This was our second trip using Nordic Visitor (Norway, 2015) and we feel the service has been consistently top notch. Dyan and Dennis, United States Iceland Grand Tour, July 2016 Our travel agent, Kristin, feels like an old friend now.
I emailed her constantly with questions before the trip, and she answered every one with details. I am amazed how well she listened to what we wanted to do and see during our visit and set us up to do it all. Our accomodations were excellent and the tours were top notch.
We will let our friends know about your travel service as many of them are curious about our trip. Thank you for an amazing adventure on your magical island. Brett and Amber, United States Pearls of the South and West, June 2016 Everything was planned out carefully and we encountered very little problem because of this.
The hotels were great and the voucher system made everything simple and hassle-free. Our service consultant did a great job keeping in touch, getting us what we needed and answering questions leading up to the trip. The overall process was very simple from beginning to end. Traveling somewhere new can be a stressful experience and Nordic Visitor made it simple and worry-free. Michael, United States South and West in Detail, June 2016 I've already recommended Nordic Visitor and Iceland to friends and co-workers who may be interested in visiting Iceland.
Including the paper map with highlighted routes and suggestions is very useful. All of the printed material provided was well thought out and very useful. The meals that were included were great.
I don't recall having any bad experiences or issues with any of the services. Anita, Singapore Nordic Odyssey, June 2016 We were very pleased with the service provided by our travel consultant, Sofia. Marie, United States The Natural Wonders of Iceland, June 2016 My husband and I had the best honeymoon. The tour guide was knowledgable and structured things so well that we were able to view a few extra sights with our spare time.
The hotels were all cute and the food was plenty and diverse (but not too outside the norm for people not so adventurous). The stories that our tour guide told us about trolls and elves and the history of Iceland definitely added something to the tour that we would not have had otherwise.Bets will have action once the 1st formation lap starts. The winner is the constructor of the first car to retire.
Each driver's handicap is applied to their race time. The driver with the best race time after applying the handicap is considered the winner of this market. Race Leader must complete 40 laps for bets to stand.
Bets stand irrespective of individual withdrawals. Any driver who does not finish the race or whose official classification is 1 lap or greater behind the winner will be deemed a loser. Bets are settled on the first completed lap of the original race start. Any official restarts are disregarded, unless in the original race the first lap is not completed fully. In this case bets will be settled on the first fully completed lap.
In the event of one lap not being fully completed all bets will be void. Any driver who is deemed to have completed no laps on the official FIA Race Classification will be deemed winners. If a driver is not in position to start the formation lap bets involving that driver are void.

For example, Driver Gordon qualifies in 1st place but due to injury is replaced by driver Brack (all bets void). If a driver is replaced during the race then bets will stand on his replacement. For example, Driver Gordon starts the race but due to injury is replaced after 10 laps by replacement Driver Brack who then finishes the race and places 4th. In the race standings and for betting purposes Driver Gordon would be credited with a 4th place finish.Megan Price uses statistics to answer important questions about social justice and human rights.

In Japan, sake has taken a back seat to many other locally-made alcohols such as malted beers and distilled beverages like the local shochu Non-sake products have the advantage of being better positioned in the market because of pricing.
This meat and potatoes segment is incredibly important and is the lifeblood of the major breweries. The premium category has remained mostly flat in sales whilst the regular sake segment has tanked and will probably continue to do so.
This regular sake segment is supported mainly by males 35 years and older. The future for this major part of the market looks bleak as its customer base is aging rapidly.Tim, United States Iceland Complete, September 2015 This was easier to do than I anticipated. Gary and Andrew, United Kingdom Iceland Full Circle, September 2015 In general, my experience with Nordic Visitor and the trip they provided for me was exceptional. Henry, United Kingdom Scenic Fjords of Norway, September 2015 Overall I had a really fantastic time.
Sara kept me informed, sent everything through in good time, and made sure I had received what I needed. Bergen was the highlight of my trip.
Thank you for making my first visit to Norway so effortless and memorable. Our reason for coming to Europe was to see the U2 concert in Stockholm, Sweden and visiting Norway for a week, prior to the concert, was an afterthought. We thought it might be nice to visit Norway since we would be near for the concert.
What we got instead of a quick tour of a neighboring country was the best vacation I have ever experienced. Bjarni made everything perfect.
There was no rushing for trains, boats or busses. Everything was perfectly timed so that we did not feel like we had to hurym but we did not have to wait long periods of time to get to our next destination. The hotels and staff were excellent. We did not expect the level of comfort or higher-end accommodations that were provided. Everything was planned convenience and for that I am grateful to Bjarni and to the people of Norway and Sweden for their gracious hospitality.
I will book through Nordic Visitor again, that is for sure. Natina, United States The Golden Triangle of Scandinavia - Express, September 2015 I had the time of my life in Scandinavia. Nancy and Charles, United States From Vikings to Icebergs, August 2015 We loved the sailing among the icebergs tour in Ilulissat. We felt the airline bookings and hotel bookings were all as explained to us. Also they would have been difficult for us to coordinate from the States.
It was such a relief to have every part of our trip proceed as planned with Nordic Visitor. There were no glitches at all, and we appreciate the professionalism. I asked Helga many questions beforehand, and she was always very pleasant and responsive.
We would definitely recommend Nordic Visitor and Helga. Edred, Canada Iceland Full Circle, August 2015 I travelled with my children and grandchildren, comprising a party of seven in total.
James, United States Iceland Complete, August 2015 I was pretty skeptical about booking a tour over the internet, but it worked out really well. Lisa, United States South Iceland at Leisure, August 2015 We thought the trip was planned beautifully and the timing was perfect.
John, United States Express Iceland, August 2015 Our trip was wonderful. Victor, United States Express Norway, August 2015 Even having traveled a lot this trip exceeded my expectations. Kathleen and Eugene, United States Norway Complete, August 2015 Kolbrun did an excellent job of planning and understanding what kind of accommodations we needed. John, United Kingdom Ultimate Journey of Norway, August 2015 We found Norway to be very beautiful and the people were so friendly and welcoming.
Mike, United Kingdom Iceland Full Circle, August 2015 A very interesting and well planned tour with overnight stops on good accommodaton. Steve, United Kingdom The Capitals of Scandinavia, August 2015 We booked a combination trip to Stockholm, Copenhagen and Oslo with Nordic Visitor and we had a wonderful holiday.
