Crystal Horton: Hello everyone, how are you today? OK, so today’s topic of discussion is how you request a google review kit from Google so that you can display some of your best reviews or one of them, um, in, in your location. So as we’ve been discussing, you know, these past couple of weeks and Google is often the first point of contact between a customer and the business. So whether it’s from finding a business nearby planning itineraries, um, upcoming trips to looking up, you know, forgotten phone number, um, we, we always plug in to google to help us with anything that we want to know. And so if we want to find out how business the or even to, if we want to find out how a business compares to the other, we look at Google and we find out what other people’s experiences have been with those specific businesses. So I’m google reviews of course, has its awesome feature which allows businesses or users to write reviews directly about that business on Google or Google maps. And now I’m to what it’s been awhile, but now you can also add photos to your reviews to better explain what you’re trying to describe about that business. So since reviews are obviously favored, find the search engines, you can now go to Google and request your review kit from Google. And so here’s what it looks like. I’m going to share my screen.
Crystal Horton: Um, OK. So if you go to this link, which is small thinks dot with Google doc, I’ve already added that into the comments. You can request a toolkit so you can request a printed thing like this from Google of your favorite reviews. So you search for your business. And let me make it known that you have to have a google my business page just in case that question comes up. Then you select on it and it brings you to a link that shows you one of your, um, your customer. You get a free printed materials by mail, or you can even download this kit, print it yourself, and also share it on your social media sites. Or you can add it as a photo to your google. My business photos, so OK, so then it kind of gives you an idea of what your social media image will look like.
Crystal Horton: Let me see if I can enlarge this year. SOCI. It shows great service delivering sensational results. It gives you the name of the individual here, says Martina B. and then the review star, which is five star reviews. OK, and then look at the bottom here. It also gives a plugin that says, support us with your reviews and photos on Google. So it’s also encouraging the individuals that are reviewing this to leave a review to support you with a review. OK, this is um, a poster that you will receive that you can place in your office. You can put it in the window, you can put it in one of your high traffic areas so that it’s there forever. And we went to see. And it also encourages not only others to leave your review, but in, it encourages your staff to ask for a review because seven out of 10 people will say yes if you just ask for a review.
Crystal Horton: And then here is it pretty emotional material which says support us with your reviews and photos on Google. OK, let me see if I can. Um, so here you can request it by mail. If you just click on that, it’ll tell you what’s in your toolkit with this, which is a 16 inch by 20 inch poster, a table tent, a sticker in a window cling. And so when you order it, because you were Google, my business page is already connected to it, it’s going to pre populate the address and send it directly to that address. You just click on confirm and it sends, or you can also download and you can start printing and sharing. So you know, you can unzip your download, read the tip sheet because it also comes with the tip sheet to learn more about sharing and displaying your customized material. And the cool thing is OK, so they just created this, this new video where you can share a video of your recent business highlights with your customers. So I’ll push play so you can see what that’s like. OK, I hope everybody can hear this. OK,
Crystal Horton: why?
Crystal Horton: Yeah. OK, oops one. Yeah.
Crystal Horton: How am I? How awesome is that? Fancy little 34 second video. OK, so c here. Now you can add it to Google plus you can click on it. Added over on facebook. Let me share it to my page. Got a few pages here. So let me find the right one so we can put a nice little message. Put it. Thank you. And posted on facebook here and there you go. Let’s see. We’ll go check it out to make sure it’s on facebook cause I always like to double check everything. Yeah, a little slow today. Either that or I need more patients, right?
Crystal Horton: Yes, maybe it’ll show. Well I guess we’ll come back to that. OK. So then if you scroll down, now you have some options to where you can share these reviews as well. So if you click on facebook, of course it will go on to facebook, you can click on twitter, it’ll transfer over to twitter. This is what it’ll look like. Yeah. OK, you can tweet that out. Um, and you can also download it. So once you download it, then you can put that wherever you’d like, you can put it on your website, you could put it as your desktop. If you’re sharing your screen, I review the possibilities are endless, so then you can also request to have it printed. And so this is here as well. Um, and then here’s another one too where you know, you can request support us with your reviews and photos on Google. I mean you can really send an email and ask somebody to support it and just put your um, but your photo in there as well. So let me see if there are any questions. Yeah, yeah,

Start with Google.to request your toolkit and it’ll show you the review that it’s highlighting. You can also just one more time real quick, I just want to show you this, that you can personalize your [inaudible] tool by tool kit black by picking some different ones that pre-populates and you can choose the layout with the review and then you can also choose your style and your color because obviously not everybody’s going to have the same color, so you can incorporate your business colors into that style as well. See, right here at the bottom where it shows the colors.
