Alternatively, try writing a simple email instead.
Bare in mind that many just won’t reply, and that’s ok. It’s not personal. Not everybody has the time.

3) On Your Site
Since you have a fabulous new website, could we add a popup on your website with a link to you Google listing?
4) Social Media
Let your social media followers know that they can review you and give them the link.
Including a testimonial as part of your advertising strategy really works, particularly if you show off your genuine Google reviews.
Try schedule posting on your business Facebook page for example, or sharing a screenshot of your latest Google review on Instagram.
Tip: Don’t forget to reply to your Google reviews!
6) Social Listening
If you observe large companies behaviour on social media, you will see that when people comment or converse about the brand, the company respond.
You could always respond with thanks, and ask whether they would be happy to leave you a review (using the link you provide).
7) Email Signature
Another great tip is to include a star-rating in your email signature.
This reminds customers that you’re collecting, as well as building trust through your reputation.
And also add a line that says ‘leave us a review’ and link to your Google page to boost engagement and conversions further still.
Perhaps you send a monthly newsletter to your regular clients?
If so, be sure to include a link to your Google review listing on ever newsletter you send.
Once you have got a fair few Google reviews, continue with these practises, only work on another review platform, such as Yelp for example.
