Edmonton Business Coach | Is a Facebook Page Enough?
A lot of people asked the Edmonton business coach if a Facebook page is good enough to get your business started. The answers that question is definitely no. In our estimation the reason to have a Facebook page or any social media is to draw traffic either to your physical location or to a website. And once people get to your website then they’re invited to either contact you by telephone, or by email. And then once they get in touch with you it is up to you to sell them on your products and services.
The most important thing that you need to develop for any online presence is a Google friendly website. A lot of companies think they have to have their website all finished and ready to go before they can start working in their business. This is absolutely not true.

But in the meantime you need to get as many five-star Google reviews as you possibly can. Because our research shows that the average customer expects a business to have 40 Google reviews before they trust their star rating. And according to Forbes 88% of people read reviews before buying. So if you are not in control of getting Google reviews for your business and your not going to get to the top Google, and you’re not going to beat the odds of business.
Edmonton business coaching | be a review machine
The most important thing that we tell all of our clients at the Edmonton business coach, is that they must take charge of being the Riverview magnet for their business. This means that they have to create systems for their staff to be able to ask for those Google reviews and get them from their clients when they are in front of them. This isn’t always easy to do depending on the industry that you’re in but it is possible.
In order to become a review machine you have to be able to ask for the reviews. I’m not sure why, but a lot of business owners think that is beneath them to ask for a review. But seeing as 80% of people look at reviews before making a purchase decision, doesn’t it make sense that you would be in charge of getting the reviews for your business.
As an Edmonton business coach, I’m not sure why people would feel proud to ask forever review from a happy customer. All I know is that if you don’t ask for a review from somebody who is happy with your product or service, you are going to receive reviews unsolicited from people who are not happy with you or from your competitors.
A lot of people are scared to put their businesses onto Google because they’re afraid of getting negative reviews. All this is absolutely a nonissue if you are actively pursuing your customers for an objective Google review. Theof the people who are not asking for the Google reviews who should be afraid, because the people who would leave the reviews are people who are upset about service, or their competitors, or they are disgruntled staff who just want to hurt your Google rating. So to get in front of this you have to get as many Google five-star reviews as humanly possible.
Don’t stop at the minimum 40 reviews that people are expecting a small business to have, get as many reviews as possible and then never stop getting them. What some companies do in order to get more Google reviews is they incentivize their staff to ask for the Google reviews that include their personal name. So every time that they get a Google review that the customer mentions their name they get a cash reward or a gift card or some other recognition for getting that review.
Google my business is free for anybody who wants to take advantage of it. So don’t delay get set up today with the Edmonton business coach start gathering those reviews as soon as you can. There is no reason that you can’t give your business a boost while your website is being designed.
