If they find your profile genuine and interesting, they may get inclined to take your service. This, further, boosts your chances of getting social media customer reviews.

Trade LinkedIn Reviews

Ask your coworker (if any) to trade LinkedIn reviews with you. This can benefit both of you. If some of your employees listed under the company page have huge recommendations, choose them for trading customer reviews. Plus, when your clients see reviews on your profile, they may feel the urge to leave one.

  • Yelp Review Strategy: Own a restaurant? Or, in hospitality industry? Make sure you’re using Yelp. If your business has just started to strengthen its online presence, try to get 5 reviews minimum on Yelp at the earliest.

Place Yelp Review Badge on Your Site

When you place a Yelp badge on your website, loyal customers will come to you and give reviews. You can also place Yelp signage in your physical store. ‘People Love Us’ and ‘Find Us on Yelp’ are some of the signage this network has. Moreover, you can also get your website’s rating from it. All these can stir up interest in your customers to write reviews.

Additional Tips

  • Shoot emails to ask for reviews. Feel free to write ‘Leave us a review’ in the body of emails. Don’t forget to include link of that social media profile where you want them to give reviews.
  • Promote your existing positive reviews on social media. If you promote the customer reviews you already have, the users are more likely to leave reviews.
  • Place CTA buttons in the website. Keep them just beside the customer reviews. Make sure your CTAs are clear and concise so as to make them clickable.
  • Ask your customers for a review at the right time. It’s best to ask them for reviews after 3-5days of their purchase. Thank them before asking. If they’re happy with your product or service, they will surely leave reviews.
  • Never delete negative reviews. It’s because if anyone has already read the negative review but didn’t find it the next time he visits your site may make him lose trust on you. Instead, apologize for the inconvenience caused to that customer and promise him to perform better next time.
