Where did the Google My Business iPhone app go?

 

6 Steps to Structure your ask for a 5-star Google review aka my “secret script.”

Studies show that people are dramatically more likely to complete your request if you do these things.

 

  1. Use their name – Start with “Hello James” or “Good afternoon Jane”. Leading off with someone’s name reminds them of how familiar and close you are.
  2. Make the ask – “Would you please give me a 5-star Google review?”
  3. Give them a reason“Because I’m trying to get ahead of my local competition” It doesn’t have to be crazy, studies show that even if the reason doesn’t seem that important the person will be much more likely to make give you the review if you give them a reason.
  4. Include a number if you can “I’m trying to get to 10 (or 25) five-star google reviews to get ahead of my local competition” is even better.
  5. Tell them it won’t take much time so they do it right away. “it will only take 2-3 minutes of your time and it will help me a LOT!”
  6. Provide them with the link – Hit them with the link right away! You’ve set them up and they’re ready to give you a five-star Google Review, make sure you make it easy for them and hit them with the review link right now!

Example Script You can Copy, Adjust & Use to get 5 Star Google Reviews

 “Hello *Their Name*, would you be willing to give me a quick 5 star Google review? I’m trying to get to 25 five-star reviews today, so I can get ahead of my local competition. It will only take 2-3 minutes of your time. Here’s the link. “

We have found this is extremely effective, ask in person first (if possible) send a message via text or email, include their name, give them a reason you are asking (use my reason or create your own,) include a number & tell them it won’t take up much of their time and give them the link so they can actually do it.

Andrew Peterson is passionate about projects and endeavors he undertakes, and this makes him most effective in the realm of website design, website development, and social media. After being floored by the effectiveness of his work in developing a website and Facebook/Twitter presence with the Easton Children’s Museum, I recommended he talk with a local non-profit “School on Wheels of Massachusetts” (SOWMA) and for-profit “Shaw’s Center/Campanelli Stadium” to deliver the same. SOWMA and Shaw’s Center were equally impressed with his capabilities, his depth of knowledge, and his unwavering commitment to projects he undertakes.
