Google reviews are important for marketing your business. Why? ONE, they boost your local search listing. TWO, they enable prospective clients to learn about you from independent third parties. THREE, they offer you (as a business owner) valuable feedback for sharing with your team or actioning to become a better business.
Naturally, the more 5-star reviews the better, and you might even make it to Google’s highly prized ‘map-pack’.
Map-pack? That’s the locality map and shortlist of business names displayed (with Google’s compliments) at the top of the search page. In short, it’s a list money can’t buy!
Google responds to reviews – good and bad.
If you have a good business offering fabulous products and outstanding services but you don’t have genuine Google reviews, you’re missing out on an important, and valuable, opportunity.
Businesses with excellent Google reviews enjoy more click-throughs to their website, simply because they are more visible in searches, and that creates opportunity for more introductions to customers.
So how do you get business reviews? Easy. Simply ask your clients.
In our experience, happy clients will be delighted to share their experience. We know, because we recently asked some of our clients to review us. And they did!
The reviews we received were great, lovely in fact. While we’ve always had strong client relationships, we were still surprised to read just how highly our clients value our contribution to their business.
