Reviews by happy patients on any review site are always welcome, but the ones that count the most are Google. Why are five-star Google reviews so valuable?
Google loves Google. When you have many five-star reviews, you rank higher in search engine results.
When patients see five-star Google reviews, they are more likely to choose your practice. A recent survey showed that 90% of respondents said that positive reviews of businesses influenced their purchasing decisions.
Those great testimonials on other sites are certainly worth having, but Google is the “gold standard.” You gain credibility. Think about it. Because you are serving the public, you need a steady stream of new patients. Those patients use Google. They are influenced by what others are saying. Take a look at how many great Google reviews your competitors have racked up and you be motivated to get more of your own.
You first have to create or claim your Google business listing. Navigate to Google My Business.
Just follow the instructions. Make sure that the information is correct and be sure to add a photo if one is not already on your listing.
Ask patients who have already given you a five-star review to please review you on Google. If you get just one new, five-star Google review per month, you will reap great benefits over time.
