Get More Reviews
We all know how important reviews are online these days. They can be a make-or-break factor when a customer is deciding to choose your business.
Businesses with more reviews tend to be better trusted and tend to get more calls and more sales. So how do you go about getting more reviews for your business?
Well for one, be very good at what you do and always follow through with what you say. This may seem pretty straightforward, but it really is good advice when in business to do the best possible job possible and always take care of the customer a 110%.
Now there is way to get more reviews online that is a rather nice hack. And this is using a little tool called Bit.ly, which is a link shortener to send a customer who is happy with your services directly to your review page on Google.
The way to do this is to set up a Bit.ly account, you can do that here. Once you have a Bit.ly account, you’ll want to navigate to your Google local page to where the reviews are done.
Open up the review area where the stars are at and copy the URL in the browser bar at the top of the page. Once you have this should go back to Bit.ly and paste it into the short link box to create a short link.
Inside this box will create a random number and letter link and you can highlight that and change it to whatever you want, like review your business. For example SkyPoint’s is bit.ly/reviewskypoint. This takes the visitor directly to where they can leave a review for our business and makes it much easier to get the customer to actually fill it out.
The cool thing is when you know you’re sending to a Gmail account, then that person will already be logged into their Gmail account and can fill out the review immediately.
Without having to login, this is much easier for the customer and is what makes it so successful!
So go get out there and get more reviews for your business. It will definitely pay off as you get more and more business calls and sales down the road with the more reviews you have.
