Word-of-mouth publicity can work wonders for any company, especially within the attractions industry. Where positive feedback can result in excellent footfall for an attraction, a negative one might result in many people refraining from trying or testing a new experience.
Be it local or global travel – technology has brought us closer in terms of sharing our experiences with each other. Every single guest experience that is shared about a business can improve or hinder growth. Prioritizing how to receive and process these shared guest experiences is a must for any attraction looking to increase their number of annual visitors.

It seems so simple when referring to one end-user, but when looking at a popular attraction that hosts thousands of people annually, the ability to process and learn from so much information becomes overwhelming.
Through the use of modern technology, businesses can clearly comprehend customer sentiment through online feedback, reviews, social media, and other rating systems and improve guest experience.
