When dealing with brands, consumers aim to find quality products and reliable services that suit their needs. They are looking for positive customer experiences and often rely on word of mouth for references. However, failures happen, and when they do, dissatisfied customers are looking for a venue to express their frustrations and let their concerns be heard. 

Online review platforms have become a powerful tool that people use to address their consumer issues and seek solutions with companies. They allow users to share their grievances and voices with others while also attracting the attention of brands.

PissedConsumer.com is one such review platform. How does it assist consumers with their issues?

In this article, you’ll learn about our principles and policies, main features, how PissedConsumer assists in consumer issue resolutions, and much more.

What Is PissedConsumer?

PissedConsumer.com is an online review and reputation management platform for both consumers and companies. Consumers use it to analyze the brands, learn about other consumer experiences, and voice their own issues, while companies exploit it to improve their reputation and streamline customer service processes. 

The history of the platform dates back to 2006. It all started with an unresolved consumer issue that sparked the idea to launch a consumer-oriented space. The goal was to create a place where everyone would have equal opportunities to express their opinions, share experiences, and attract companies' attention to consumer issues.

Since then, PissedConsumer has become one of the leading US review platforms with about 20 million users and over 4 million reviews. Five million visitors to the platform every month can search through more than 106,000 reviewed companies in over 163 categories.

PissedConsumer's mission is to foster effective communication between brands and consumers, helping them achieve successful resolutions and enhanced relationships.

What is the meaning of PissedConsumer?

PissedConsumer is a collective image of all frustrated customers who have faced consumer issues with brands. The idea to name the online review platform “PissedConsumer” came from its CEO and co-founder, Michael Podolsky, and his business partner. Michael is an original pissed consumer who once had a negative vacation experience. Despite numerous attempts, his issue wasn't resolved by the company. So, he and his business partner decided to create a website where all unsatisfied consumers who feel “pissed” could freely speak up about their concerns, warn others, and draw companies' attention to their issues.
