Google reviews: a new feature

by | Dec 14, 2018 | Websites

Before choosing which restaurant to book, what hotel to stay in, or any big purchase, the chances are that you’ll check out reviews online. And a five star rating is likely to sway your decision.

Social proof plays a really important part in deciding who to do business with, and choosing which accountant to work with is no different. Google reviews are an easy way to ask clients to leave feedback on their experience of working with you.

They show up as part of your business listing (a Google feature) so people will see them instantly when they search for your firm. There is also an additional positive impact on your local search results. So it is really worth encouraging clients to leave a review.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could also display these on your website as well?

Well, now you can. Our new feature checks Google daily for any new reviews and displays them on your website, in a choice of formats to suit you.  You can choose to show the most recent, the highest-rating, or the most helpful reviews at top. You can even add a filter to show only four and five star reviews.

Display your Google reviews on your website

You could just copy and paste the reviews into your website but by doing this you reduce the legitimacy of the post.

There is also the option for you to encourage more clients to offer their opinions by including a link inviting them to ‘leave a review’.

If you want to show the world how amazing you are get in contact with us to talk about adding this new feature to your site.
