If you want to improve your chances of prominent positioning on Google, getting consistent reviews is going to be of great help. Start making the ask for reviews a regular part of your business process!
(after you’ve created a Google business listing, of course!)
Send clients a direct link to your Google business profile
Creating a short link for your business profile on Google and sending that out to clients will help make it as easy as possible for clients to find you and review you online. The less confusion there is, the greater the odds are that a client will follow through with leaving you a review on Google.
What if I don’t have a physical business address?
If you’re under the impression that you can’t list your business on Google because you don’t serve clients out of a consistent physical space (for example, you work out of your home and meet clients at their business), I have good news for you! Service providers are able to claim their business using their home address and specify a service area rather than displaying a business address.
