- Boost local search ranking: With Google Reviews, your business shows up higher in local Google searches and clients can find you easier on search listings and on Google Maps. Plus those 5 stars really stand out and make you look good!
- Influence decision making: When you have more Google reviews, that helps customers choose you over the competition.
Here’s how to get Google Reviews
- Claim your business: Create your “My Business” profile at google.com/business opens in a new window. You will need a Google account. Enter your business details and then verify your business.
- Update your listing: Optimize your business listing by entering the rest of your business information including keywords, hours of operation, and high quality photos. Make sure your profile looks as enticing as possible.
- Ask customers for reviews: Ask your satisfied customers to leave you a review but make it easy for them by sharing your unique review link.
Find that link by following these steps:
- Go to Google My Business and click on Home.
- Click on the “Share review form” button, on the right side of the page.
- Copy and share that link with your customers.
- Ask again and say thank you: If your customer doesn’t leave you a review, don’t fret; just ask them again. Don’t ask them more than 3 times though since you don’t want to be pushy. Usually customers are more than happy to share their good experience. After they do though, make sure to leave a public response thanking them!
