The power of Google reviews and how to get them!
VIDEO: Google Reviews for your business
Hi, it’s Adam Franklin. Today’s video is all about social proof, particularly via Google reviews. Now, if it’s not something that you’re actively collecting from your customers and subscribers, then it’s something that I recommend you start straight away.
How do you get reviews in Google?
First you need to set it up. Technically how you do it is you go to google.com/business and you can then register your company. Or even if you’re an individual, register yourself as an individual on there and you’re going to validate your actual physical address. They’ll send you a postcard.
Then what happens then is that you can be accumulating Google reviews from happy customers and clients. Then when people Google your name or they Google your company name, down the right-hand side of the search results will hopefully be your profile and a whole bunch of hopefully five-star reviews.
Hope that helps. See you.
PS. Now you need to get some Google reviews!
Always ask clients who’ve had a good experience to write you a Google Review. I recommend sending them a link directly to your Google Business Page to make it easier for them.
How do I read google reviews?
You can see them publicly on your Google page, but I recommend logging in and responding to the reviews as well.
