then this is the video for you so make sure you bookmark we make sure you you subscribe down below of course bookmarking is a bit of an old-fashioned way of doing it make sure you click the alert button as well and then you won't miss the next update on this video now often when it comes to google they do like to tend to keep things within their own realms within their own areas and so obviously when it comes to leaving reviews on google my business google would prefer you to use their own email which of course is gmail and a huge amount of people do have gmail accounts so that's fine what happens if you don't want to sign up to another email account or gmail itself what happens if you don't want to use your gmail account you want to use say a different email account is it possible to still leave good reviews for people that have given you good service but without using gmail is it possible to do it on an iphone as well or on a local mobile we're going to look at all those questions today but also before we do that we're going

to just sit at the beginning how can you leave a very simple link to get reviews from your your clients and from your customers we're going to dive straight in now into the tutorial and then we'll then be able to answer those questions for you before we talk about how to leave a review and particularly if you haven't got a gmail account just first of all check the importance of making sure you know how to give a review link so we're going to particularly look at that how can you actually provide a link for someone to leave a review and google's made this really easy now so if you log into your google my business account and you'll come up with your dashboard which is uh here if you click on home if you're not there and you should find at the moment google is providing this box here get more reviews share your business profile and get new reviews from your customers and it really is as simple as that if you click on this share review form and that will then give you a link and you can just click on the link and

link is copied and now if i go anywhere i can paste that and that will then give the person that's given that link the opportunity to then provide a review so let's see how that works now of course you can of course share it on facebook whatsapp twitter or share it via email it's nice and ready to fill in it's even put some kind of some ideas as to what you can put and so on and then also if you can get your person to leave a photo of the product or the service they're happy with or even a smiling customer that'll all have a bit more of an impact on how google views this review it's a positive thing so especially is the fact that if they've taken on their camera it will then have the location of where it's taken and if the location is around the corner from you they're a happy customer then that all adds to google seeing you as authentic in a local area now what i'm going to do is i'm going to tackle this slightly differently because i'm logging into my own login and that doesn't help
But if i do this in incognito mode and if i now type in that address...
but if i do this in incognito mode and if i now type in that address in incognito mode and you'll see then that the map comes up and it now wants me to sign in now this is where most people are put off because they go sign in with your google account i don't have a google account and i don't want a google account i don't want to use a google account now for whatever reason you don't want to use gmail or google that shouldn't put you off giving a review and this is what i'm going to show you now that you can still give a review to someone even if you don't have a gmail account now the way it works you click on sign in and of course it still wants a gmail account you notice here it says create an account so you still feel like am i going to still require a gmail account so i'm going to create an account for myself and this is the bit that you need to look out for use my current email address instead and that's the bit that most people aren't aware of that you can still leave a review so you just put in
Your name and you don't need to put in a gmail account you can use your own current...
your name and you don't need to put in a gmail account you can use your own current account and then you can add your own password as well so in that case you just put into a yahoo account a hotmail account outlook account whatever account it is that you want to use you just fill these things in with that account and you then do not need to use a gmail account and that will then log you in so then you can leave a review and that's something that most people don't realize exists so that url will take you through to a link where you don't need to use a gmail account to leave review hopefully that means that you'll get more reviews from people that say that they don't want to use a gmail account so if you just want to get someone to do it on their phone it's just the same way really you just log into your phone and it can be on an iphone or a samsung or whatever it is android in this case what android i'm just going to paste that g page
Review that we mentioned at the beginning of this tutorial so just paste...
review that we mentioned at the beginning of this tutorial so just paste it in there enter that and then just in a similar way really it asks you to log in with your gmail account and you can just do that either your email address your phone number and that's fine and once you've logged that in you can then just then put in the review if you don't have a gmail account once again just click on create an account and you can either go for a new account in gmail or if you don't want to use your gmail account again you can use your own current email address so it's exactly the same on a phone as it is in a tutorial but just slightly less options and you often find that's the case so hopefully that's been useful too so if we go back to where we were and just to say that of course if you do have reviews coming in do make sure you reply to them make sure you click on replied and if you haven't replied then make sure that you get this emptied out because replying to reviews is really important it also emails them and thanks them
And it's also again another signal to google that you're on top of your business so...
and it's also again another signal to google that you're on top of your business so make sure you do that now what about when you've got reviews uh says a few little bonuses you can have them embedded into your website so it does again lend itself to the fact that if you've got reviews and you want them to appear on your website then why not get them to appear here now if you want to know a bit more about how you can do that and also how you can get them to appear on your footer as well so i've got some of the latest ones here appearing on my footer of the website then if you want to know about that then i've got a video that i'll put a link to um that is called how to embed google reviews 2020 and it's a free way of putting them into your website so make sure that you check that video out i'll put the link above for you to go to that if that's what you want to do and something else that happens when it comes to reviews here's an example being q and sutton we've got quite a few poor reviews unfortunately but what do you do if you've given given a poor review and it's not fair or it's not reasonable or it's clearly just a bit of spam
Well you can report it you can reply to it my advice has always been to apply reply to...
well you can report it you can reply to it my advice has always been to apply reply to the review and ask them to perhaps check to see if they've got the right company because it could be a misunderstanding of the company name and if they have a genuine issue then offer to put it right offer to make sure that if there's anything you can do professionally answer them really with the idea of trying to resolve it now if all those things still don't seem to get the review resolved and it's really unfair you feel it's been totally done to bring down your company well then you can also report it and there's ways to go about that as well so what i want you to do is if you haven't done this already to just see how to remove fake reviews i've got an account a video there that i'll put the link to and you'll find that helpful too and that will then help you so basically reviews are important but it's also worth bearing in mind that not the score alone is what google looks at
Google's looking more about how regular you uh get reviews how authentic the reviews...
google's looking more about how regular you uh get reviews how authentic the reviews are so don't get too hung up on the actual making sure it's a five-star review in fact if you haven't seen these videos came out i released it just recently i explained how google when it comes to reviews only 15 of your ranking of your google my business in google's eyes is anything to do with the signal coming from reviews and those reviews are really related to the quantity the velocity and the diversity if you want to know more about how that works in fact i've put seven tips together for the best practices so it's not just to do with google reviews but you really need to know and find out how to apply this video to your google my business so if you haven't done so already make sure you check that video out so i'm going to leave that video for you to go to now and when you go there i'll join you there and we're going to really dissect how google sees not just your reviews but how google sees everything to do with google my business so that you can
