A review will immortalize the trust that you've earned, and allow you to grow your business in some serious ways.

Principles of Getting More Reviews:

1 - Actually Ask for the Review & Plant the Seed Early

Few factors help your business as much as Google and Facebook Reviews.

The primary behavior you and your staff will have to master is your offer rate. If you don't ask for somebody to leave a review, or bring it up during your sales process, service, or follow up, people are just going to go along their busy days.

Our goal is to build behaviors within our staff, and our own conversations, to normalize Google and Facebook reviews with everybody that we interact with.

A critically important step is to lower the commitment level that it takes to actually get a review.

If people trust you, they can leave a review.

Obviously a customer testimonial that has photos and deep detail about how you solve their problem is best, but sometimes you need to be more generous or lower the standard associated with getting that review.

I think you should approach reviews from the standpoint that you're trying to show that you are worthy of trust, and that they trust you.

You just wanna show people you're not crazy and you actually do what you claim you d

2 - Create a Doable & Easy Path to Leave a Review

If you want people to leave you a review, you need to make it stupid simple for them.

People are busy, and you need to gently remind them, and follow up a couple of times, with a simple way for them to quickly review.

We like to place a review section on your website that has a review button, and we also have found that automated texting and or drip followup is very helpful.

What works BEST to get reviews?

  • Perform a “wrap up” and ensure every expectation was met.
  • Meet all expectations before ever asking for a review.
  • Call them personally and ask
  • Text them the Google My Business link after you call
  • Email them the Google My Business link
  • Followup that evening with a text to see if they link worked
  • Follow up the next night to see if it worked
  • After asking a couple of days in a row, give it a week and gently followup again


Text & email is best, gently follow up diligently because they are truly busy. People that love you and want to do business with you will quickly forget about leaving the review.

There's also a weird thing that people procrastinate with it because they associate it with more energy than it actually takes, my wife is notorious for this. 

3 - Reduce the Commitment Level of  Review & Provide Examples of What to Say

It takes energy to craft a succinct message about something.

You can reduce the energy needed to create their own review by providing a quick example.  I think the less formal you are with this, the better.

I’ve sent messages and emails that say something like 

“I really appreciate it, you could say something like”

“Feedbackwrench helped us grow our sales and build up our revenue with Google ads”

Or 

“Rob really helped me know what to do with my accounting business”

Take some of the energy out of it if you sense they need the relief.  Some people don’t need help, but others do.

Reduce the Commitment

Reducing the commitment is all about making it more about trusting you and confirming that you do what you claim you do, rather than making it feel like overly committal.

This is helpful and lowers the temperature for people in general, and you’ll probably get more reviews as a result.
