Create Google Review Link (In Just 60 Seconds!)

How do you get customers to write reviews for your Google listing, other than doing great work? 

You make the process as simple as possible.

That’s where the Google Review Link comes in. 

By sending these customers a URL to your listing, all they need to do is click it, rate it, type in a few words, and click Post.

Sounds great, but don’t know how to get started? 

That’s what you’ll learn today.

Tadaa, you just created your unique link.

You can pretty much send this Google Review Link anywhere.

If it’s WhatsApp, Facebook, or Twitter, click the appropriate button, and Google My Business will direct you to the channel of your choice.

Here’s how it works if you were to click on the Twitter button. Note how it prefills your Tweet with your business listing and Google Review link.

What if you want to include this URL in a ‘Thank You’ email?

Log in to your email marketing platform and start a new email.

Write your email copy and include the URL. Both links from Google Search and Google My Business will work just fine.

Using SendFox as an example, enter your Google Review link and click Save.

When users click on the link, they will see a pop-up that looks like this:
