Google reviews are the most important reviews you can get today. In this post, I’ll share with you five easy ways you can use to start getting more Google reviews for your clinic TODAY!
Tip #1 - Have signage on your front window on how to leave a Google review
Have a sign on your front window or door about leaving you a Google review. You can easily download one for your business for free by getting your Google My Business marketing kit.
Tip #2 - Ask for Google reviews via your online appointment scheduler
Jane App is a popular online appointment scheduler for chiropractors and physical therapists, but it can also be used to ask reviews from patients right after their visit.
Use your online appointment software to help you start getting more Google reviews automatically without having to do anything! All you have to do is set up your software with the information needed for your Google My Business listing and the software will take care of the rest.
Tip #3 - Have your front desk receptionist help you get Google reviews
Your front desk staff can help you get more Google reviews by asking patients while they are waiting to leave you a Google review, or they can ask while scheduling them for their next appointment.
You can even help them out and increase the odds of you getting more Google reviews by providing a short 1-pager on how to leave a Google review for you. Make sure to include instructions for how to do via mobile or desktop to help make it as easy as possible for your patients to leave a Google review!
Tip #4 - Ask for reviews via social media
It’s a good best practice to ask for Google reviews every so often via your social media channels because there is a good chance a good chunk of your patients who are following you haven’t left you a review yet.
You may also want to link to a blog post or include a photo carousel that includes instructions on how to leave a Google review (again, this makes it easier on the person and more likely they will leave you a review).
Tip #5 - Have links to leave a Google review for you in your emails
Finally, its a good idea to utilize your email list to ask for reviews – whether you incorporate asking for Google reviews via your email template, or create separate emails every so often. Just like on social media, there are likely a good chunk of repeat patients of yours on your list that have not left you a Google review yet!
