Cultivate Google Online Reviews

Cultivating Google Reviews

You have lots of happy and satisfied customers. Wouldn't it be great if you can get more of them to write a positive Google review for your business? As you know, this may be a challenge as even if they agree to write a review, it's still a rather complicated process to visit Google, look for your shop, and actually write the review. For this blog, we've outlined an easy method for you to create a link in which you can include in an email or embed as a button right on your website. Customers can then just click the link or button and start writing.

When customers click the link or the button, they'll instantly see a review box (see graphic on right) which is even prefilled with five stars! This will provide you the best opportunity to garner more positive reviews. Let's get started.

Visit the following link and scroll all the way down to the bottom:
