I don't know about you, but when I'm researching to buy something, visit somewhere or book a service, I have a look through the reviews from previous customers on Google, Facebook or TripAdvisor etc
Asking customers for a review seems a tedious task but these testimonials are a great way to know how you are doing, what customers are happy with and what may need a little attention.
Find a suitable time within your customer journey and kindly ask your clients if they could take a minute to share their experience with you. Google Business makes it easy to send a link and reviews are submitted directly to your profile, and here are some other ways you can ask also:
Ask them in person!
Email them - make it personal and let them know how valuable their feedback is
Create a short survey that you can send to your customers after the purchase of a product or service
Through your website - ideally with a reviews page and direct input form
On receipts/invoices leaving an email address or direct link to your Google Profile reviews
Keep yourself in the game and don't shy away from asking for feedback.
