I like to leave online reviews.
I take my time with them, perhaps this is because I used to be a journalist for the local newspaper.
That newspaper is long out of business, however I remember those lovely afternoons of being a professional writer with great fondness. I approach my online reviews these days with as much forethought and care as if it were a paid gig. I used to only do this with nearby locations to eat, but now I do with every corporation I visit, mostly on Yelp… Over the past year I have greatly enjoyed writing online reviews for cannabis dispensaries. In this nearby neighborhood there are a dozen cannabis dispensaries. This is the largest neighborhood in the state, legitimately it is the largest neighborhood in the tri-state area, so there are a ridiculous number of brand new cannabis dispensaries. Since they are all competing for the same market share, they definitely want as many positive online reviews as possible, because that is where the bulk of cannabis sales come from. I have l acquired that for every customer that walks into a local cannabis dispensary, there are four online customers that want their products shipped. Even though we know cannabis is becoming legal in many areas, most potheads still have a deep distrust of the cops and the entire government. People appreciate buying their cannabis either from a trusted friend, or anonymously over the safety of the internet. When I give a positive review for a cannabis dispensary, it always leads to higher online traffic, and increased cannabis sales. If you want myself and others to come check out your cannabis dispensary, slide into my DMs.
