I get asked ALL the time, how do I get Google Reviews.
I tell people the super secret answer… ASK!
It is so simple people don’t get it.
I get asked all the time how do I get reviews. I always suggest email.
So I want to let my dentist or actually his dental assistant show up.
Back drop story.
I just went to a new dentist and received an email today. It is not that well written, it has errors but you know what… it got them a review from me within seconds of it being sent. Here it is:
Hey Matt this is Janet from Parker Dentistry! It was pleasure having you in our office. Your appointment went great you are an awesome patient! We wish we could have more patients like you in our office. It would be great if you left us a review letting us know how your visit to our office went for you. Thank you and enjoy the rest of your day. 🙂 Below are the instructions for leaving a review on Yelp or Google. Thanks for coming in and trusting us to serve you!
Google: log in to your gmail account and search google for Parker Dentistry or click the link below and leave a review.
To like us on facebook, click below 🙂
End of Email.
Now whats wrong?
- She mentions instructions for Yelp which do not exist.
- The image to click on the leave the review says Follow us on Google+ vs Review Us On Google+.
- Facebook is a distraction from the google review.
- Capitalization and grammar not the best.
It is personal, very kind, does not beg for the review.
You can swipe the copy.
Or here is another script for thane email. SO here it is, copy and paste BUT be sure to replace your links between the ( _ ).
We always love taking care of you, your family and friends.
This is what our office is all about- helping our customers on their road to wellness.
We want to take more responsibility for the health of people in our community and the best way to do that is to get the word out.
We are asking that you help us in this effort by taking a few minutes to post a positive review about our office.
It can be a testimonial of how we’ve helped you recover from a symptom, or letting others know out there that we have a happy, friendly team, or any way in which we have helped you.
Doesn’t have to be long- just one or two lines is fine!
Click on any of these links that you have an account with to leave us a review:
(insert google map url)
(insert yahoo map url)
(insert Bing map url)
(insert yelp url)
(insert citysearch url)
We are eager to see what you have to say!
Thanking you in advance,
Try it have your assistant send similar emails after every visit for a week and see how that goes for you.
The business with the most reviews will get the MOST new customers from internet searches.
If you prefer to have a more trackable system we did build a great review management software Review Wave just for this problem.
