Effective Ways to Ask for Google Reviews

 

When you want better local SEO, the quality and quantity of your Google reviews are an essential metric. Today, we will share effective ways to ask for Google reviews to boost your ranking and get your business the social proof you need to get ahead of your competition.

Why Are Google Reviews Important?

Our nature as social creatures makes us consider other people’s experiences before deciding on what products to purchase. Therefore, Google also takes these reviews into account when ranking sites.

You’ll need to have a Google My Business account for your business to receive Google reviews. Once you have a Google account, you’ll want to make a Google My Business listing for your different business locations. Each location can have its own reviews, and consumers can find your business based on their location.

Targeted Ways to Ask for Google Reviews

 

We discuss using social media, personalized text messages, emails, and videos to ask for reviews on Google. Also, find out why you need to be tenacious to get more great reviews than your competition. We also explore the option of using automated management software to send out texts to clients for reviews.

 

Learn simple ways to get quick reviews such as testimonials, use of QR code linking to Google, and why it is advisable to ask for a review immediately after a purchase is made. Also, find out why we caution businesses not to ask many clients to add a review within a short time frame.

 

Lastly, learn why you need to respond to your reviews on Google, whether they are positive or negative. And be especially careful to respond professionally when replying to negative reviews.
