A great way to get prospective clients interested in your business is by having great reviews for your business on Google. We highly recommend that every business have a process where they gather reviews on a regular basis. It is not easy to get reviews, so don’t forget that you will have to ask 10 people to get 1.  You can also refer to our sample emails to help you compose your review request email. Below are the steps to identify your URL to send to your clients, it’s your About page on your Google My Business.

The following steps will aid you in this task:

  1. Go to Google Local Search: https://plus.google.com/u/0/local
  2. Find and go to your About page.
  3. Copy the Google Local profile page url (and if there is a ‘?’ strip that and anything after it)
  4. Embed the link on your site, email
  5. OR Share via Google+

For instance, if you wish to share the reviews page for the ThreeFortyNine coworking space

Step 1: Go to Google Local Search


Step 2: Find the Profile


When the listings come up, click on the business name.


Step 3: Make the URL

Copy the Google Local profile page url, https://plus.google.com/107775422523824459466/about.  Your complete reviews will be listed at the bottom of the page.

Note: you will have to log in to get to this step. Don’t worry, the URL is the same even after you have logged in.



Step 4: Send the URL to your customers


In order to link a word to a URL in email (in GMail), the following steps must be taken:

a.) Select “Compose”

b.) At the bottom of the composition box, hover over the “+”, will see a chain icon (highlighted below):


c.) Select the chain, this will lead to the following box:


d.) Enter “review” into “text to display”, and the desired web address into “Web address”

e.) Hit “OK” and the word is now linked to the required URL (this helps to stop posting long links in emails)

When the user is signed into Google, they will be directed to your reviews page:
