In AskNicely, by clicking on the lightning bolt icon on the left, you will be taken to the "Workflows" page. In a nutshell, workflows are automatic emails sent out based on your surveys.
If you scroll about halfway down the page, you will see a "Get More Reviews" workflow. Read this article for how to set these up - the critical step is that you need to create a link for customers to click to review the 'correct business' on Google.
- Use this guide to generate a 1 click link that will open up the review for that business.
- Use a link shortener like bit.ly to shorten the link.
- In the "Get More Reviews" Workflow, put that shortened link where it says "website address here" in bold below:
<a href="website address here”>insert words you want hyperlinked here</a>
Save your workflow, and you're done! Congrats, you are on your way to a Google Reviews boom.
Something to note: Google Reviews only work for businesses on Google Maps. If they don't exist on Google Maps, Google does not provide a linkable method for reviewing them.
