How to get reviews on Google

Another Monday Morning Website Tip by Marcus Rangel

Have you ever thought of a Google review this way? What if you were to drive by your business and the “star rating” was directly above your business on the street… would it be more important to you then? My guess is, yes.

Here’s the good news, getting your clients to leave 5 star reviews on Google isn’t as hard as you probably think. Here’s several ways I’ve done recently for some of our clients and even for IMC.

Send a personal email.

I love mass communication as much as anyone else, because it’s easy. But sending an email in mass even if the email is coming from “you” from Mailchimp, isn’t the same as coming from your Outlook box to someone else’s. Making it personal is key, thank the customer for the business, say how much you’ve enjoyed working on X, Y, or Z with them, and then ask them for a review on Google with a direct link to your review page. The key on this is to not take it personal when someone doesn’t leave a review. They got busy, they forgot, or didn’t have the time that very second to leave a review. It happens and not everyone bats 100, just ask the “Sultan of Swat…” ha!

Ask for a review in your P.S. Line of your email signature

Don’t forget about your P.S. line of your emails. You are sending emails everyday and you would be shocked to see how many people click on links at the bottom of an email, especially if it’s unique.

P.S. Whatever you do, try something!

Getting reviews on Google is one of the best ways to boost your local SEO and where you show up when someone googles a type of business in a particular city.

About Marcus Rangel


I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.

I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.

When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Topeka, KS.

What happens or should happen after someone fills out a form on your website?

The KC Royals had just one the World Series… finally. They have hours, days in fact of footage to get you hyped about the next season and have everyone ready to buy next years season tickets. As a creative team, we had decided to buy season tickets as giveaways to our team and the credit card was in my hands. I guess I was expecting something magical when I clicked the “buy now” button to…

2020 Website Trends and how I used them for our new IMC website

Big text, gifs, large photos and “storybrand” conversational copy, it’s all part of how the web is going in 2020. What’s great about these trends is websites are now truly adapting to using the entire screen and they are honestly starting to look like a print pieces. I feel that in 2020, the days of sites having 12 point font should be over. Let’s look at why. Big text, no really big text is awesome!…
