Select Preferred Online Review Website

Online, the more reviews you have, the more social proof you have of your great customer experience or care you provide at your practice. Customers and patients looking online are influenced by both the ratings and the volume of reviews businesses have on their profiles. The more positive reviews, the better the perception of your business.
Plus, when you are consistently asking patients to leave new ratings and reviews on your public profiles, you’re protecting against the potential damage of a negative review. Remember, the only way to prevent the impact of negative reviews is to consistently receive positive ones!
Increasing the number of Google reviews for your business or practice is an easy way to improve the search visibility for your business and practice. This ensures the maximum number of people are exposed to your business - but it does take some work.
In order to increase your reviews on Google My Business, the best thing you can do is implement a reputation management program that includes consistent solicitation of reviews from customers or patients - whether that is manual or automated using software, such as RepCheckup.
The best way to increase your Healthgrades ratings is to continue to provide quality patient care and then make sure you ask the patient to leave a review. A recent BrightLocal consumer review survey showed that 70% of patients who are asked to leave a review will actually leave one for you. The best way to ensure this is happens is to automate your patient review solicitations, making it easier for them to follow-through.
There are many ways you could ask customers for online reviews: in-person, via a receipt or signage, via email, or via text. Ideally, you should be asking for reviews through a combination of these methods – with customers getting asked personally before you follow up with an email or text request. However, RepCheckup customers have found the most success with sending out text solicitations.
Nope! There’s no situation that would make purchasing online reviews for your business a good idea. These reviews are often poor quality, obviously fake, and raise red flags for both your potential customers and the websites they appear on. Instead, save yourself the money and make sure your staff is properly trained on how to ask for reviews and use a reputation management tool to make soliciting customers easier.
Incentivizing customers to leave online reviews with a discount or free gift is largely a gray area. Blatantly offering money in exchange for a good review IS a violation of the terms of service for many review platforms, like Yelp and Google, so we always recommend steering clear of gray areas just as much as you stay away from incentivizing reviews because they are essentially the same as purchasing reviews.
With RepCheckup you can consistently generate new online reviews and keep a pulse on what’s being said about you on over 20 online rating and review sites across the web in less than 5 minutes per day.
