Here are a couple extra points to think about when getting your Google My Business Customer Reviews together:
A great time to ask your customers to leave a review is shortly after their purchase. Send a follow-up email asking about their experience with your product, business or service.
Be simple and direct in how you ask for the review.
We’re not allowed to incentivize customers with discounts of other offers for their review. This could get your business banned.
Ask your customers to focus on one point in their experience.
Don’t be afraid to ask your customers to be honest. Honesty works and so do reviews that are authentic rather than contrived.
Now create your direct link and get your customers talking about your business!
