Getting a google review
If you have a business or perhaps are planning on starting one, you probably realize that customer reviews are important for your sales and popularity. But how do you get those, preferably in the way most visible to others?
The solution is “Google reviews”. First of all, when customers will see your listing on Google’s local search results, you will appear higher on the list than if you don’t have google reviews. The more reviews the higher you appear. So, even without actually entering your website, potential customers will see the number of reviews you have received. (Temptation will be high to check you out).
Another benefit is that when anyone posts their review about you, this will automatically be shared in their circles. Not only will you become more visible via social media, but perhaps some friends of your customer live nearby or are travelling close. This means – even more potential customers!
One little problem: it is a pain to explain to your customers how to create a google+ account, to find you and to write a review. This is why an easy hand-out with instructions is offered to you so you can give it to your customers.

Personally, I think that this is not a good idea. I cannot imagine creating a social media account just to be able to write a review. I guess this is another way in which Google tries to promote Google+. However I do think that in case people have a Google+ account already, this is indeed a good way to get reviews. Especially because of the fact that the number of reviews appears in the search results on Google. What do you think? Will customers be willing or reluctant to post reviews via Google+?
