When looking for a landscaping company, did you know that 9 out of 10 people will look at Google reviews before deciding which one to reach out to? Crazy, right? What’s crazier is that many landscaping companies aren’t leveraging this powerful tool to its fullest potential.

In this video, we offer 5 simple tips to make asking for Google reviews a common daily practice.

1. Ask In Person

This one may seem obvious, but we’re amazed at how few people actually ASK for reviews and referrals. When a happy customer tells you how satisfied they are with your landscaping service, it’s the perfect opportunity to ask. Though it may seem slightly uncomfortable at first, you’ll quickly get over this mental hurdle once you realize how effective it is. Ask and you shall receive!

2. Follow Up

In your follow-up email after completing a successful job, mention how helpful Google reviews are to spreading the word about your landscaping business. It helps to provide a short example within the email. Create an email template and share it with your entire team, and make the process of following up a habit.

3. Automate It

Your team likely sends several emails per day. Why not make the process of encouraging reviews automatic by including it in your email signature?

4. Your business card or flyer

If you’re designing new business cards or flyers to leave with your clients, include a note about how much your business appreciates referrals and Google reviews.

5. Your website

Your website is the perfect portal to highlight past testimonials and to link to your Google review listing in the footer, on your Contact page, or on your About Us page.
