We Create a One-Page Document for Getting Easy Google Reviews From Your Customers
Did you notice the yellow stars above? It does not matter if you have 100 reviews on Yelp and 200 on Yahoo. If you have no Google reviews, it will appear to many potential customers as though you have no reviews at all. This results in them being less likely to click on your business — and more likely to check out your competitors. We don’t want this.
Worst of all, you’re more likely to be outranked by your local competitors if they have more Google reviews than you do, even if their customers hate them and their reviews are awful.
You know Google reviews are crucial to your local visibility. But I’m guessing the problem is you don’t know of an easy way to ask customers to review you.
If you’ve ever tried explaining to customers how to create a free Google Plus account (which they need), how to find your Google+ Local page, and finally how to post a review, you probably know what a pain all this explaining can be.
(Oh, and you have to do all of that in just a few minutes, or your customers will tune out the way they did in 8th-grade algebra class.)
You find it frustrating and time-consuming.
Your customers get confused.
And you end up with no reviews and a phone that doesn’t ring.
Solution: clear instructions for your customers
Or you can do it the easy way. Getting Google reviews doesn’t have to be hard.
You just need a system that makes it easy for you to ask your customers, and that makes it easy for them to write you reviews.
That’s why I’ve put together a one-page explanation that you can give your customers, which will…
- Easily explain how to set up a Google Plus account
- Shows them where to find your Google page
- Walks them through how to post a review – now don’t have to walk them through it every time.
All they need to do is follow the steps on the one page sheet of paper. They’ll thank you for educating them and showing this valuable information. Now you’ll have people on your Google plus circles that probably wouldn’t have been there. Imagine what this will do for your referral rate.
Now you have a stream of Google reviews coming in—and most likely a Google local ranking that’s more visible, with yellow stars that stand out, and that attracts more customers.
Check out this example instruction sheet to give to all your customers. We can make one for you to email or have printed in your lobby for customers to work from.
