5 stars
The coveted 5 stars are hard to achieve!

First up, a follow-up email is a great way to ask for a review. After you’ve completed a job, send a friendly email thanking them for their business and asking if they’d be happy to leave a review. Make sure to include a direct link to your website or review page so it's easy for them to leave feedback. Another idea is to add a request for a review on your business cards. Simply include a line on the back of your card asking for a review, and explain how to leave feedback. That way, your customers will have a tangible reminder to leave a review and can easily refer to it later. If you’re feeling brave, why not ask for a review in person? This is a powerful way to get customers to leave feedback, and it shows that you really care about their opinion. You can even prepare a simple script to help you ask for a review confidently and professionally.

Social media is a great platform to request for reviews. Take a photo of the work you've done and post it on your social media accounts. Include a caption asking for a review and a link to your website or review page. You can even offer an incentive like a discount on their next job for leaving a review.

Finally, sending a newsletter to your customers is a great way to remind them of your services and ask for a review. Include a friendly message asking for feedback, and a link to your review page. You could even offer an incentive like a discount or coupon for leaving a review.

Asking for a review doesn't have to be hard work! Try out some of these ideas and see which ones work best for you. The more reviews you get, the more visible your business will be, and the more potential customers will trust and choose you.
