The Secret to 5 Star Google Reviews
It is my birthday and I am feeling pretty generous! Happy Birthday to me! So I have decided to give you all a present. Here it is, the fastest way to grow your 5 star Google review rating:
You have had some great feedback from clients, but how do you get that to convert onto your Google page? Adding a 5 Star Google review embedded link to your email signature is an easy way to get testimonials. Plus with the review already at 5 stars it deters 4 or 3 star ratings.
How to create a link for a 5 star Google review
Create a Thank You Email Template:
The email is simple, to the point and heartfelt. They already know the excellent service you have provided. Go for it! Ask for your client to write a Google review. Within the request, send a direct link to the Google review page loaded with a 5-star rating. That way even if they don’t type anything, you still get the 5 stars.
On your phone, open Google Chrome in an incognito tab:
In the incognito tab on your smart phone, go to Google.com and search your business name exactly as it appears on your Google My Business page. Your business’ Google knowledge graph should show up with all of your business information. If you don’t see your business, include your city and/or province until your business pops up.
Select to review 5 stars:
Tap the 5th star on the far right. Make sure you see all 5 stars highlighted, as this will be your default link for requesting reviews.
Grab the link:
You will be prompted to log in. Don’t worry, that’s what you need! Scroll up to the address bar. Press and hold in the address bar until the “Select All” option appears. Click it and then select “Copy” to copy the URL.
Use the link in your email:
Congratulations! You now have a link that will work on both mobile and desktop, that you can embed in thank you emails. This will easily direct your clients directly to your 5-star review prompt on Google!
You can embed the link in the image of the Google Logo, or just have the link itself. If you can’t stand that long link? Shorten it with Google’s shortener, Goo.gl.
Click that link to see it in action!
