HOW TO: get more reviews
As the saying goes, in business, a referral is the ultimate compliment.
These days it’s more than that … a heap of great reviews is one of the best ways to convert a potential customer before they’ve even spoken to you or checked out your socials/website. Google and Facebook reviews also help your website rank higher on search engines.
Don’t be afraid to ask your customers to write a review of your business, but make it easy for them. If you send them a link directly to your Google My Business review section, they’ll just have to think up a few kind words and press ‘post’ … making it much more likely that they’ll do it.
Here’s how to do it:⠀
1. Log in to your business google account⠀
2. Go to Home and scroll to ‘Get More Reviews’⠀
3. Click ‘Share Review Form’⠀
4. Copy link and then email it directly to your customers (or share it on your website, socials or newsletter)
Don’t forget to say thanks by responding to all reviews (you can do this in the ‘Manage your Reviews’ section of Google My Business’).
