Alright so I tried to record this video earlier in the office but I did it sitting in a chair that spins around and I decided to do the whole video of like holding my phone up while I was spinning in the chair in circles the entire time, and I watched it just now, well not just now but right before I left, and I was like, yeah, no, people are gonna end up puking.

Because it’s just me going in a circle the whole time, so, instead I’m going to do it while I’m driving, because THAT’S safe…

So, here we go… this video is about how to get a bunch of awesome reviews on Google and Yelp and your facebook business profile. Here’s how to do it! The first thing you should do is make a list of all of your clients… their first name, last name… If you only have their first name that’s fine. And their email address… Put it on a spreadsheet and start at the top. You’re gonna send the first person an email.

You’re not gonna send the whole list a mass produced email. You’re gonna send the first person, just one person, an email. …to make it as personal as possible and you’re gonna ask them a question.

And here’s the question: you’re gonna say “would you recommend my business to a friend? Yes or no? Reply back and let me know.” This is a really important email to send because what it’s doing is it’s separating the people that think of your business favorably and the people that do not to think of your business favorably for whatever reason.

If they reply “yes I would recommend your business to a friend,” then you can reply to that email and you can say “awesome, Mr. So And So, it’s so great to hear and I’m so happy to hear that…” …”If that’s the case I would love for you to leave a review on my Google business page, for example, and give them the link, or you can say “I want you to leave a review on my yelp page” and give them the link…

Uh… hold on, I’m driving here… hold on… annnnnd turned successfully, great!

It’s important to only give them one the link to one review page because if you give them a bunch it’s just like really? It’s too overwhelming, I’ll do this tomorrow, and then they never do it. So… instead, what you do is you ask for a review on one thing.

Here’s a little tip: if they have a gmail address, if they email you from a gmail address, ask for a Google review. They’re already logged in… …most likely… they have a Google account already, at least, so they can log in and it’s simple for them to leave a review. Ask for a Google review. Google loves it too. Great for SEO.

So, that’s if they say yes they would recommend your business to a friend. If they say no they would not recommend your business to a friend… You say “you BASTARD!” No… You reply that that sucks but you’re sorry to hear that and you ask if there’s anything you can do to fix whatever went wrong. Let me know what went wrong, I’d love to make it right, and love to give you another widget that works, I’d love to give you a discount on a future service, or I’d like to give you services for free…

Something to make it better…

The cool thing about that is, number one: you learn about how to make your business better, number two: people that you fix problems with often become lifelong customers. Because you went out of your way to make them happy.

I’m gonna change lanes here hopefully without crashing. Okay… Success…

So that’s what you do if they say no. It’s really that simple. Send out an e-mail, ask if they would recommend your business to a friend. If they would, ask for a review. If they wouldn’t, ask them why.

That’s it. It’s a lot of work, but it’s simple and it’s free. It just takes a little bit of effort.

If you don’t wanna put that much effort in, and you want to automate the whole process, you can do that too. There’s software for that. I’d like to tell you about that. We partner with a couple companies it’s not it’s not required but it is cool and it works, so, if you’re curious about it, ask me in the comments below…
