How to get More Google Reviews for Your Business with a Text

Figuring out how to get more reviews on Google may be troublesome for new business owners. So I want to share some insight on how I design websites to help business owners get more reviews through texting. (And stay professional too!)

Step 1: Get your Google review form URL

Access your Google My Business Account. Get the URL to share your review form. This specific URL will trigger the 5 star rating system on Google to instantly pop up for users to leave a star review.

Step 2: Create a new page on your website for reviews

Make the URL for your new web page something simple like ‘www.yourwebsite.com/reviews’ .

Put these 5 things on your new web page.

  1. Your logo
  2. Ask the user if they would like to leave a review
  3. Yes button
  4. No button (Optional)
  5. A disclaimer that reviews submitted are visible online.

Step 3: Hyperlink the Yes button to your Google review form

Yes! Hyperlink the yes button to the share URL you got from your Google My Business account. This specific URL will trigger the 5 star rating system on Google to instantly pop up when clicking yes.

Step 4: Hyperlink the No button

Here’s two options for the no button. Both require you to make one more web page.

  1. On the new web page ask the user to stay in touch and follow your business social accounts.
  2. On the new web page ask the user to submit private feedback with a contact form, for your eyes only.

Step 5: Ask people for a review. Send the Text.

Text your clients the link to your new review page. Depending on your business you may, or may not, already have the clients’ mobile phone number. If you do not, ask the client at the end of service if you can text them a review link. Upon the clients approval, send the text!

Yo Gal Tip:

If you want to try to get reviews on multiple platforms, hyperlink your yes button to another new web page. On that web page post an icon for all the platforms you are trying to get reviews on. Then hyperlink the icons to your review section on those platforms. Many platforms have direct URLs for leaving reviews on your companies specific page.

 

Looking for help setting up a review page for your business website?

If you would like some help from Motive AV setting up a review page like the one mentioned in this post please fill out the form. The service fee for the review page is $65.

That includes 2 new web pages! The review question page and a no page (no pages have the option of social follows or a private feedback form!). The yes page will link directly to the google review.

If you have multiple places you would like to get reviews, I can create an extra page for an additional cost. The extra page will be a yes page that has links to other places you are trying to get reviews!
