Do you use QuickBooks Online to manage your companies books? If so, you can bolster your companies online reputation by setting up a consistent flow of new Google reviews in just five minutes.
Simply by asking for them. In a survey, 70% of participants said they would leave a review if asked. You will be amazed by how many more reviews you will get just by asking customers to leave a review for your business on Google when you finish a job.
You may think the best way to ask for an online review is by asking in person, but that is not true. The best way to ask for feedback is actually by email or text.
When asking in persons, you have to hope that the customer remembers what they promised to do when they have access to a computer. You are also banking on the fact that they can find a website where they can leave a review for your business.
The reason a review request message is better is that it makes leaving a review quick and easy for the customer. You can include a link directly to a review website in a digital message. By making the review process fast and easy, you reduce the amount of time you require the customer's attention. The less attention the task requires, the better the odds the customer completes it.
It is really easy to start sending review request messages when you already have a QuickBooks Online account because of an app called Simple Review Management. Simple RM is a new type of app that has the same functionality as a lot of other apps but with one big difference. It can do it all on autopilot. If you are having trouble picturing it, think of it like this. Imagine that by installing the Simple RM app, you are hiring an employee. Your new employee's sole job is to watch your QuickBooks Online account for the balance of one of your invoices to go to zero or the creation of a sales receipt. When either of those two things happens, your trusty employee takes the email address from the invoice or receipt and sends them an email asking for a review.
Set up is fast and easy because Simple RM takes care of everything. Let's get back to the thought that installing the app is like hiring an employee. The position with your company would not be this employees first marketing job. They are experienced and able to work through complex situations. One such case is if you don't have a Google business listing.
You need a Google business listing in order to receive Google reviews. Simple RM makes the process incredibly simple. There are quite a few questions to answer when you are making a Google business listing. However, since Simple RM is handling the creation of the listing, and it has access to your QuickBooks Online account, it can pre-fill the answers to questions. All you need to do is give your approval. Of course, this only happens if you don't already have a Google business listing. If you have one, Simple RM will detect it in your Google account automatically.
If you are ready to improve your online business reputation, getting started is easy. You can find the button to do that below. If you want more information first, you can read more about Simple RM here.
