Take Advantage of Summer Foot Traffic to Ramp Up Online Reviews 

Summer is officially here, and with the warm weather and vacation time comes an influx of foot traffic for local businesses. Whether you own a restaurant, retail store, or equipment rental company, summer is probably your busiest season. With all those customers coming through your doors, now is the time to invest in reputation management solutions to help you keep your online reviews fresh and positive. 

How to Generate More Online Reviews This Summer

There are a few ways you can take advantage of increased foot traffic to generate more positive reviews for your business, including: 

  • Collect customer info with each purchase – When you prompt customers to provide a phone number or email address upon completing a purchase at your business, you then have an avenue to follow up and ask them to share more about their experience. People are busy, so even if they love your product or service, they may forget to leave a 5-star review without some extra prompting. 
  • Include a QR code on your receipt leading to your preferred review site – Another way to remind customers to leave a review is by adding a QR code to your receipts that leads to your profile on your preferred review site, like Facebook or Google. 
  • Use physical signage to remind customers to leave their feedback – When people know that their feedback is heard and valued, they are more likely to take the time to leave a review. Adding physical signage to your business encouraging customers to leave a review—again, you can include a QR code to make things even easier—will send the message that your business wants to hear what your customers have to say.
