If you can get your testimonials into online RAVE reviews,
now that is GOLD!
An easier way to get online rave reviews! Automated testimonial collection & display.
Fix spelling mistakes and make amendments on reviews already submitted.
Displayed on your wall of love and can easily publish their comments to other platforms.
When is the best time to get that testimonial or rave?
Right when the person is at their absolute highest 'raptness' (rapt with joy)
What if within seconds of that conversation or feedback you could send them an email (templated and personalised) asking for that review, and it would only take them 30 seconds (so you know it would get done)!
- Would that make life easier?
- How many more testimonials do you think you could get then?
- Do you think your testimonials would be more emotive and passionate?
- So what if then, you were able to automatically direct them to your online and social media platforms to get that review online?
Pretty awesome right!
By online and social media platforms we mean..
....... and the list goes on.
So for you to be able to fully leverage testimonials, recommendations and case studies online... very powerful marketing is this (said like Yoda).
If you're not doing this, it's like you're scoring 6 out of 10 for your marketing efforts, and why wouldn't you want a 10 out of 10 leverage score?
Your Google Business and Map listing is a massive opportunity for brownie points with Google, and SEO rankings BOOST benefit.
Who doesn't want that?
For even more social proof that you're a legend at what you do, your clients could get directed straight through to your Facebook Business listing to give you a star rating.
The leverage in that is huge, you send a simple personalised email and all of a sudden you're being put in front of an audience you would never otherwise be put in front of.
But there's more...
Let's not forget what happens to a 'True Local' Business Listing. These reviews show up online, complete with a star rating.
Did you also know when peoples do their 'due diligence' on you, as in search for YOUR business name online, your 'True Local' listing shows up in the results as well.
So does your Google Business Review AND your Facebook Reviews.
You do one thing, and all these benefits unfold.
Your social profile and circle of influence is on the 'up' and all you did was ask for a testimonial.
BUT because it's in a unique way your getting a BOOST in responses!
One reason is because it's so easy for them to do...
AND more relevant and passionate responses because it's timely...
AND it's out in the land of social signals, not just limited to your website, so again, better leverage.
Frequently asked questions..
Well, you'd only send the review request to those you're confident in a positive response BUT here's one element of 'sexiness'...
The review does need your 'approval' before it's displayed.
We have 2 strategies to help you get sharp, focused powerful client raves, and that's also included in this 'Smarter Reviews' package.
It automatically gets posted to your Smarter Review dashboard for approval and then displays on your website. How cool is that?
No copy paste or any actions required. Just click and it's done!
We understand what it's like as a business owner, too many things to do and not enough time to do them, so we've automated this process.
It will look something like this on your site, there's a few different ways to configure this but we'll look after all of that.
Oh yeah, and there's a link through to ALL your reviews section on your site, better for SEO and humans.
Yup, we thought of that too.
If the client rave is placed direct on one of the social or directory platforms there is implied permission, because it's direct on the internets, so that can be used anywhere in your other marketing anyway.
But what if it's placed direct on your website?
Can you then use it elsewhere in your marketing?
Watch this very short video on the 'sexiness' of this , really, watch this -
Specific placement of reviews.
eg: service 1 reviews are placed on service 1 page to further reinforce the power and force of the work you do

Do you want more referrals as well as reviews?
If you don’t respond, or acknowledge your reviews you’re leaving money on the table, that simple.
We’ve made it easy with ‘Smarter Reviews’ to get more reviews, but the end game here is to also get more referrals.
Question: Who is the best ambassador for your business?
Yes, those people who love you, and just gave you that awesome review.
So how to respond?
We have that covered, you'll also get our 'Review Response' worksheet. This is a FULL suite of powerful emotive heartfelt responses that will help turn your new business ambassadors into referral machines.
What if it's a negative review?
We have that sorted too. People just want to be heard, something happened for them, so with the right response you can turn that initial reaction into a positive and they can still remain ambassadors.
I think you can see this is the pinnacle of online reviews and integrating it as a marketing machine into your business. This makes a massive difference in helping business owners just like you get a handle on all there is to do with getting better reviews, getting more online reviews, with broadening the range of online platforms for your reviews, with then leveraging that into more referrals, and then with the side spinoff of better SEO results it's an actual no brainer...
Oh, one more thing...
Third Party Online Review Services
There are businesses out there that are offering 'Online Reviews' as a service, trouble as I see it is that it's on their web platform, so the review process is hosted by them, seems weird to me.
Why would you not want to have this built into your own website?
