As a business owner, you know the many benefits of receiving Google reviews, such as increasing your Google ranking for local SEO, increasing your online reputation, and attracting new customers. But why do most business owners dread asking for them? It's simple - it can be awkward and makes us feel uncomfortable!

The most important thing when asking for a Google Review is to make it as simple as possible for your customers. The best way you can do this is by giving them a simple link to click on that will take them straight to your Google review page. You can create your link in your Google My Business account. The next step is to start using it! Put the link on your website, Facebook page, and in your email signature. Another great way is to create an "ASK" email that you can send right after you complete a job, when your customer is at their happiest. As awkward as it may be for you to ask, don't delay as you're potentially missing out on growing your business! 𝗣𝗦... 𝗚𝗼𝗼𝗴𝗹𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝘃𝗶𝗲𝘄𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗳𝗿𝗲𝗲 - 𝗪𝗵𝗼 𝗱𝗼𝗲𝘀𝗻'𝘁 𝗹𝗼𝘃𝗲 𝗳𝗿𝗲𝗲 𝗺𝗮𝗿𝗸𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴!?
