I like to leave online reviews.
I really take my time with them.
Perhaps this is because I used to be a journalist and a columnist for the local newspaper. That newspaper is long out of business, but I remember those days of being a professional writer with great fondness. I approach my online reviews with as much forethought and care as if it were a paid gig. I used to only do this with places to eat, but now I do with every business I visit, mostly on Yelp. Over the last year I have greatly enjoyed writing online reviews for cannabis dispensaries. In this city there are several dozen cannabis dispensaries. This is the biggest city in the state, actually the biggest city in the tri-state area, so there are a ridiculous number of cannabis dispensaries. Since they are all competing for the same market share, they want as many positive online reviews as possible, because that is where the bulk of their cannabis sales come from. I have learned that for every customer that walks into a cannabis dispensary, there are four online customers that want their products shipped. Even though cannabis is becoming legal in many area, most potheads still have a deep distrust of the cops and the government. People prefer to buy their cannabis either from a trusted friend, or anonymously over the internet. When I give a positive review for a cannabis dispensary, it almost always lead to higher online traffic, and increased cannabis sales, If you want me to check out your cannabis dispensary, hit me up in my DMs.
