Socializing and Attending Events Remotely
One of the most difficult parts of social distancing for many people has been the “social” part. Being separated from friends and family and unable to participate in normal social events has been a difficult adjustment for some. Many companies have been able to deliver social experiences and events to those who are distancing and consumers are sharing their 4 and 5-star experiences on Trustpilot. Below are some of the companies that have delivered these experiences virtually and received positive feedback from consumers.
Twinwoods Adventure has received 5-star reviews for their virtual escape room, allowing groups of up to six one hour to solve a mystery through a series of puzzles and clues.
For those looking for someone to share the loneliness of quarantine with, DateinaDash has been offering virtual speed dating sessions. One reviewer said it was “a fast paced and fun night” and another deemed it a great way to date in strange times.
Many people are still waiting for the day when they can visit breweries or distilleries again, and enjoy tasting craft beverages. Eden Mill is trying to make the wait more bearable by offering virtual gin tastings, which one consumer said was just as good as some in-person tastings they had participated in.
For beer lovers, Beer52 hosted a virtual beer festival that earned them 5-star reviews from consumers.
Kids have been forced to miss many important milestones during COVID-19, including graduations, parties, and birthdays. Companies like RemoteFun are receiving positive reviews from parents who were able to host virtual birthday events and celebrate at home.
And for those who are missing travel (most people, we assume!), turning on your computer to attend a virtual experience is the new boarding a plane. Companies like Ultimately Sydney have been offering remote tours of cities and cultural experiences, and consumers are leaving them reviews
Staying Healthy, Virtually
Social distancing means that some people have had limited access to gyms, health clubs, and even doctors and pharmacies. Companies that can deliver these services virtually have been critical in helping keep those at home healthy and happy and many consumers have left reviews for these outstanding wellness experiences on Trustpilot.
Taking care of mind and body is an important part of maintaining your health and MoveGB offers virtual mindful yoga classes that one reviewer found a great way to help maintain an at home wellness routine.
One consumer found that they could complete their yoga teacher training through YOGABODY® virtually and praised the remote wellness education experience.
If golfing is your preferred sport, you may have had difficulty getting to golfing greens or connecting with golf instructors due to local social distancing orders. Consumers have claimed that virtual sessions with Dr. Golf has been “great as they are designed and structured specifically for golfers” and have helped improve their game remotely.
And finally, even though many consumers have been taking care of their health amid social distancing, illness does occur. Many patients looking for non-COVID-19 medical treatment have found relief in virtual doctor visits provided by companies like MDLIVE.
Virtual Shopping and eCommerce
As economies around the world begin to bounce back and people resume shopping habits, many have embraced the simplicity that comes with shopping online. Consumers are leaving reviews for companies that traditionally require an in-store experience, but have offered virtual customer service or consultation they consumers make shopping decisions remotely.
With renovation and redecoration also comes much needed closet cleanouts. One consumer was happy to get virtual help from a consignment specialist at The RealReal and make some extra money selling luxury items in their closet.
Making an investment in valuables like art and jewelry can be anxiety-inducing even when you get to see the items in person. Purchasing these items remotely adds an entirely new element of stress. Artmarket arranged a virtual viewing for a consumer resulting in a 5-star purchase experience that the consumer shared with the Trustpilot community.
Even as we begin to return to something that resembles normal, we may still see a preference for virtual events and experiences that keep people distanced but connected. If you’ve had a virtual experience with a company and want to let them know your thoughts, as well as share your experience with other consumers, be sure to leave a review on Trustpilot.
