Now we all know that consumer recommendations are extremely important for businesses. Most of the time recommendations can either make or break a product, a service and a business. It’s important for a business to fully understand how recommendations and reviews affect their business. It’s also important to understand what channels are more influential than others when it comes to recommendations.
