We Help You Get Reviews & Referrals Through Our Simple Process
STEP 1: Point them to where you want the review
Need more customer reviews on Google? Check the Google box. Your customer receives a link to review your service on your Google Business page. Reviewrefer works the same way for other business review sites as well.
STEP 2: Decide when to send the review request
You can send the customer the request while you are still standing in front of them, parked outside after the job, or schedule to send latter. Your customer receives a text message or email (depending on which you chose to send) and they post a review on the link you gave them to Google, your Facebook business page reviews tab, HomeAdvisor, etc…
STEP 3: Start getting reviews where you’ve needed them
We’ve built our service to be super-easy-to-use so that all you need is their consent to message and their phone or email to send to. Our process helps you bypass your competition by keeping a fresh stream of reviews piling up where you need them the most. The best part is that you save a lot of time because the complicated stuff is automated.
WHAT WE’VE LEARNED FROM THE REVIEW & REFERRAL INDUSTRY AND HOW IT BENEFITS YOU
A lot of assumptions are made about reviews and referrals by business owners, managers, and employees. These assumptions are usually implemented into business policy and practice and do more to hurt a business than help it. We’ve done a lot of research which include studies conducted by Harvard University, Statista, Forrester Research, to name a few. Here are the core lessons we’ve learned and also incorporated into ReviewRefer to get you the highest value possible in growing your business with new customers.
The Star Count Does NOT Matter
Customers care more about what is written in the reviews by other customers than what the star counts and rating totals are.
5 Or More Reviews Gets More Customers
A Northwestern University study identified 270% greater conversions for businesses with at least 5 reviews on a review-based platform.
No Reviews Creates Immediate Distrust
Prospective customers doing online searches for financial services will skip businesses which have no reviews. You build a wall between you and your prospect by having 0 reviews.
94% Of People Read Reviews
Prospective customers go to their trusted review websites and search engines to research which home service business is the best choice via reviews.
Reviews Play A Critical Role In The Decision Making Process
In an industry-lead study, 97% of those surveyed said that customer reviews factored into their buying decision.
Consumers Distrust Advertising & Turn To Reviews
In a TrustPilot study, 70% of consumers do not trust what they read, see, or hear from advertisements and turn to reviews to make an informed purchasing choice. Let’s face it, most print ads go into the trash and prospective customers search for home service businesses with their phone online.
How Do I Use ReviewRefer To Win Over My Competitors?
We’ve built Review Refer to be extremely easy to use with a lot of features and ways to get in front of new customers compliantly. Here are some of the top benefits:
You steer your clients where you want them to post reviews of your business!
Text or Email Review and Referral Requests
You can ask a customer while they are still in front of you if you can text or email them a message with a link to post a review of your product or service.
If you feel uncomfortable doing that or don’t feel that you have the time to do this individually while you are top-of-mind, you (or a staff member) can send the request later.
Review Refer supports the upload of your customer phone numbers for text messaging them OR the upload of email addresses to email them your review or referral request. With each we offer them the ability to opt-out of receiving further requests from you.
Save Time with Automation
No one wants to have to re-type the same message over and over when asking clients for a review. Plus, there are custom links you have to use with certain sites or your customer will be taken to a login page and not your business review page.
With ReviewRefer you enter this info one time and the service remembers it. Going forward all you need is the customer phone number or email and then hit send. Super easy to use!
You can send a review request instantly while still in front of the customer, after you leave, or schedule send in bulk. We do a drip-send so that the review websites are not hit with a flood of reviews all at once. Pause or cancel the bulk sends at any time.
