Make March Magical by sharing your gratitude! How? We love being part of this community!
We want to thank all of the local businesses and professionals that we come in contact with on a daily basis. Have you, as community members, ever thought how we can repay those professionals around us? We have! It’s called gratitude marketing and it’s writing a review for them and letting the world know how amazing you think they are! Why is this important? It’s important because now more than ever, people are making decisions by the reviews that they read about a business or a person. If you are like 90% of the consumers, you go to the web. You check reviews. You decide based on what you find. In fact, studies show that a review from a stranger often holds more weight than a referral from a friend. This area is notorious for being sleepy as far as review writing. Reviews are so important to businesses today, yet we all struggle to ask our happy clients for them. so, for March, share your magic….in the way of a review.
Here are some tips on writing a review:
Google their business. Their business will come up and on the right hand side of the page will be their “Google business.” On the bottom of that box, there is a spot that says to review.
Go to their Facebook page. While it won’t be indexed by google, many people will see, and that is very significant to the business or professional.
Go to their website. Most websites have prompts on how they want you to leave a review.
Go to Yelp. Yelp is important because when you ask Siri a question, Yelp answers. Yelp is tricky though, because they want you to abe a “Yelper” and do more than one review.
Linked in. Go to their Linked In Page. This is the professional equivalent to Facebook for a business professional. Please note! A recommendation is much more powerful than an endorsement.
