Posted by on December 5, 2011 - 3 Comments

As the year is coming to a close, we at JJ’s List have been reaching out to you, our treasured reviewers, to find out how your experience on our site has been. One of the things we heard back was that it’s not always obvious to everyone how to write a useful review.

Sure, we’ve got some helpful pointers on the right of our “write a review” page, but seeing actual examples written by other people would be even better.

So here you go… here’re some great examples of reviews, both positive and negative, posted by consumers just like you. We’re so grateful they’ve taken the time to share their views and we hope that this makes it easier for you to write yours.

In the meantime, feel free to contact us if you’ve got more great suggestions on how we can improve your user experience.


Tips on writing a helpful review:

    • Keep it short.
    • Tell about what the staff at the business did to accommodate, support or assist.
    • How did that make your experience, or that of the person with a disability a positive one?
    • If you use the business or service, you can review it: entertainment, doctors, dentists, employers, lawyers, schools, salons, banks, realtors, pets, restaurants, stores, safety services, transportation, churches, synagogues, mosques.
    • If you had a negative experience, share it, but be constructive. Offer suggestions about what the business can do to improve disability awareness in customer service.
    • Remember, we want to build positive experiences and promote community participation for people with disabilities one review at a time.
    • Don’t review a business that you own.
    • If you attack, swear, rant, bash or use hate speech your review will not be posted.
