How to Write a Google+ Review in 4 Easy Steps

October 31, 2013

Today, we’re going to tell you WHY we think Google+ is the best place for your customers to leave their glowing reviews about your business. Then we’re going to take it a step further and show you HOW to submit reviews on Google+.

Imagine this scenario:

Woman on the phoneYou’ve just gotten off the phone with a client who is thrilled with the work you’ve done for her company. She wants to write a review about your company so she can share her enthusiasm with the world.

That’s great news – to get great reviews, you first need to do great work. Congratulations, give yourself a pat on the back!

Now, you’re probably wondering if you should direct her to your Facebook page, Yelp, or Yellow.co.nz to write the review. Or maybe you should put her kind words on your website in the testimonial section?

It seems like the number of places for leaving reviews is growing by the week. You may even feel overwhelmed trying to keep up with all the options. Don’t worry – we’re here to help.

4 Reasons Why We Think Your Customers Should Use Google+ to Leave Reviews:

  1. The Google+ review will show up in Google search results.
  2. Everyone uses Google (Ok ok, not everyone, but we think hundreds of millions of people is close enough).
  3. Everyone will see your Google+ review (Reason 1 + Reason 2 = Reason 3… didn’t know this was a math lesson, did you?)
  4. The last reason might be the best of them all. It appears that positive Google+ reviews can help your company rank higher in search results. And we’re not the only ones who think so – our brainy friends at Moz.com have published a very brainy study about it.

An excellent review on Google+
