Responding to comments creates customer engagement and allows them to connect on a personal level with your company.  It shows them you are listening to what they are saying and that you value them as a client. Let’s look at the two ways you can respond to customer comments.

Step 2:  Once you have opened the comments section, choose the comment you want to reply to.  When you hover over the comment a sub menu will appear under the comment. Click Reply.

Step 3: A comment box will appear under the comment bar.  This is where you will type in your reply to the comment.
