Tip of the week: Make It Easy to Write a Review

According to SearchEngineLand, 70 percent of consumers will leave reviews when asked. That number may be even higher if you make it really easy to leave an online review.

Make sure to use a variety of formats when requesting reviews, including on-site tablets or kiosks, email-based request and text messaging. Be sure to include links to high-impact review sites like Google and Facebook in your requests, as well as on your locations' websites and business listings.

Some Online Reputation Management platforms offer mobile apps to simplify sending text-based requests. For example,  the Reputation Live app lets front-line sales reps send SMS review requests to customers with a few clicks. Check out the app here.
