So you have your Google My Business Listing registered and you have started to update it. Or you are about to register for it and thinking about what to add to it once you get your verification code from Google.
Want more reviews? Yes!
When was the last time your customer left you a Google Review? Would you like to make it easy for them to leave one for you? Yes. Well there are a couple of things you need to have in place before you can and then after that you will be able to make it very easy for your customers to leave you 5 Star glowing reviews!
What do you do first?
Well, the first thing is you have to have a Google My Business listing. If you have one then that is one thing less to do. But if you don’t then don’t worry as all you have to do is to apply for your Google My Business Listing and from there set it up properly, check out my step by step guide on this. Here is what you will see when you go to the Home Page to register for your Google My Business listing:
So what’s next?
Now that you have your Google My Business Listing verified and all set up. So what’s next you ask, well all you have to do is go to your Google My Business Account on desktop (easier to share the link from) but you can use the Google My Business app. Below is what the Home dashboard in my Google My Business Listing looks like.
On the desktop in the “Home” dashboard scroll down and find “Get More Reviews” (see the little guy in the blue shirt). See below what he looks like:
You found him, now what next?
Click on “Share Review Form” and copy the unique URL link. From there you can share it personally to your customers via email, in a text or message.
Reviews matter! Next time you are looking up a restaurant or looking to buy something local I bet you look at the reviews don’t you. So why not give your customers the opportunity to give your business a new review today and all they have to do is click the link you send them and they can leave you a glowing 5 start review! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I hope you found that helpful and all reviews welcome! And if you feel like leaving me a Google Review please do here (ah no you don’t have to).
