#63 How To Gather 5-Star Google Reviews (Without The Cheesy Bribe)


“Welcome to a new era of marketing and service in which your brand is defined by those who experience it.” – Brian Solis

Times are changing! In days past you could depend on direct word of word of mouth from your clients. People trusted the word of their friends and family more than any other source.


  • 97% of consumers read online reviews for local businesses in 2017, with 12% looking every day
  • 85% of consumers trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations
  • Positive reviews make 73% of consumers trust a local business more

This new landscape makes gathering 5 star reviews from your clients more important than ever before.

If you’re like us, we hate the trend of bribing our patients to leave a review. We want them to want to leave a raving statement about how much they love us and our team.

Unfortunately, your competitors don’t care. They’re willing to compromise their values by giving away the farm just to stack their online review platforms with glowing comments regardless of whether they are fully true or false.

On today’s episode, our in-house marketing “guru” Dr. Michael Gibson joins us to discuss his strategies that regularly yield fantastic google reviews without bribing his clients to do it (at least not in an unethical way).
