How to Get More Google Business Reviews

By | NJ Web Design, Online Marketing, Website Design | No Comments

Encouraging customers and clients to write reviews for your business can result in attracting more customer. With Google being the most powerful search engine, it makes sense to focus your review solicitation efforts on your Google My Business page.  As the verified owner of the business page you have the ability to manage your own information and control control what appears in maps and search results.
The shortest path to getting a review is making it simple and easy for customer to leave a review. This is accomplished by providing the customer with a link to your Google My Business page review form.

Here is how to get started:

Search for your company in Google and click the button that says “Write a Review”

Cut and paste the URL in the address bar of your browser. You’ll get a URL that looks like this https://www.google.com/search?q=bza+llc&oq=bza+llc&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i60j69i61j69i60j69i65l2.2631j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#lrd=0x89c301d99c1495a5:0x3d03ac5abdd195d5,3

The last digit which is a 3 controls the style of the review pop-up box. If you change the 3 to a 1 then the pop-up box will contain your current reviews.  But if you add a 5 to end of the URL (…3,5,) this will pop-up the review box and already fill in the 5 stars.  Now, all the customer has to do is fill in the comment field.

https://www.google.com/search?q=bza+llc&oq=bza+llc&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i60j69i61j69i60j69i65l2.2631j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#lrd=0x89c301d99c1495a5:0x3d03ac5abdd195d5,3,5,

You can use a URL shortener like Tiny URL or Google’s tool https://goo.gl/  which makes embedding the link a lot easier. After using this tool the long URL is now shorten to  https://goo.gl/qmFakp

How to Promote Your Clickable Google Review Form

Now that you have your powerful URL, it’s time to put it to work.  What you can do:

  • Cut and paste it into your email and send it to clients
  • Send it to a client once the project/sale is complete
  • You can add it to your email signature file as Review Us
  • You can link it in emailed invoices

By | NJ Web Design, Website Design, WordPress | No Comments

The Hearing Group in West Orange New Jersey, provides audiological evaluations, aural rehabilitation including hearing aid dispensing and repairs.

The Hearing Group, a long time client of BZA, had an early WordPress website.  At the time mobile websites did not exist.  As a short term solution the client had a separate mobile website built.  This was problematic as now they had two websites to update.

BZA built the new site utilizing a premium WordPress medical related theme.  We customized the theme to the client’s branding and added several new features that both educates and engages patients.
WordPress Website Features Include:

  • Appointment Request Form
  • Downloadable Patient Forms
  • Integrated Google Map Directions
  • Product Gallery
  • News Blog
  • Social Media Integration

WordPress Appointment Form

BZA provided personalized training utilizing the client’s own WordPress Admin Dashboard so updates can be easily performed by in-house staff.
