Best Ways to Boost Reviews for Your Business

Best Ways to Boost Reviews for Your Business

Reviews matter. They are a form of customer service that can help you build trust with customers, increase sales, and brand awareness. When customers leave honest reviews on their own accord it carries more weight than solicited ones.

Here are the best ways to achieve this;

1. Set Up Online Profiles

Increase your online visibility in an impactful way. Visit popular sites in your industry and have a consistent process for managing your interactive accounts.  Use Search Engine Optimization techniques to ensure your site appears before competitors on local search engines like Google, Yahoo!, and Bing.

Wondering where to start? Search your business name on Google my Business. Have a professional website with a complete page containing adequate information about your business.

Claim Your Business

2. Claim Your Business

On Google my Business, if the question “Is this your business?” pops up, it means you can still claim your business. Claiming your business gives you control of the information displayed about your business. To achieve this, follow the simple prompts on Google.

Sites like Yelp, Bing, Yahoo, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, also allow you to claim your business. They can help you build your business’s online presence and send you proactive customer leads.

3. Email Campaigns

Send out automated emails, asking customers to review their product experience. Include a short graphic that shows how easy it was to use and that asks the customer if they would recommend the product/service to others.

Customer Surveys

4. Customer Surveys

Asking your customers to rate your business on a scale from 0-5 stars (with 5 being the best) will allow you to determine where you stand in terms of customer satisfaction. For example, through the extension Google Seller Ratings (GSR), Google Adwords shows the level of business trust by displaying the score under the URL of the ad.

To qualify for the GSR extension, your business needs at least 150 unique reviews over the last 12 months…

5. Retargeting Campaign
