How to Generate Reviews

Did you know that generating reviews is FREE? All you have to do is ask for the review and then make it easy for clients to leave their feedback with direct links.

Once you’ve done that, research and put into place a review action plan. The first one you come up with may not suffice. Rework and tweak the review process until you settle on one that works (ask 3+ times).

Whether you’re the owner of a coffee shop or a hair salon, time is of the essence – the best time to ask for a review is when the customer is still on the property. Here’s what you can do:

  • 1. Hand out review cards with QR Codes and Text Keywords. (Show the client how easy it is to leave a review) Open your camera app and demo.
  • 2. Electronic Invoice – ask for the review and provide direct links to Google and Yelp.
  • 3. Follow up 10 to 30 days later with a call and email. Again, provide direct links to write a review. Text clients thier link to write a review.
  • 4. Website should have a link to write a review.

Do not expect a review if you’re not asking for the review! Here’s why

  • 90% of consumers expect to be asked to write a review
  • 60% will write a positive review if service meets expectations (if you ask)
  • 80% will write a positive review if they are wowed
  • 90% will write a bad review if they are dissatisfied

Even when advertising, reviews play an important role in converting a shopper to a buyer. You can improve conversion rates on your Google ads by generating reviews. Don’t know how to go about this? We do! Call Tactical-Moves now for a free consultation.
