#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.

Now…

  • 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).

    • A front end offer.
    • The core product.

#47 How To Handle Bad Online Reviews

The reality is, you can do everything right…

Create an extraordinary business, deliver a VIP experience to everyone, care about your customers, get results, become the best darn chiropractic office on the planet and you could STILL get a bad online review.

For better or worse, online reviews come with the territory. If you’re operating a business in “modern” times, you should and likely do have an online presence.

An online forum or review sites like Yelp, Google and Facebook are all platforms designed for your customers and prospects to interact with your business, which includes leaving their deepest thoughts and experiences for the rest of the world to read and make their judgement about.

Sometimes the reviews are simply the rantings of an apparent lunatic who has never even been to or remotely close to your office. What can you do about those? Not much, they typically speak for themselves and your possible clients can recognize that too (hopefully).

In other cases, you or your team made a tiny omission, a misstep, or some miscommunication. It happens. Address it like a good business owner and move on.

Far worse are the reviews that just might be…well, true. I know that stings a little (or a lot). Sure, you may have a different side to the story, but somewhere along the way you or your team made a mistake.

How do you handle each of these unique situations without escalating the problem and disqualifying 1000’s along the way?

That’s exactly what we cover on this episode!
