How to Get More Customer Reviews for Your Business


Are you struggling to get reviews for your business?

After every purchase made, you ask those to leave a review if they were happy and thrilled with the service and/or product. Unfortunately, every attempt fails. Reviews are barely trickling in.

Why are they so important for businesses?

For starters, shoppers trust reviews as much as they trust their best friend's recommendations. They let others know if they were happy or unsatisfied with their purchase.

How can you get more reviews from your customers? Take a look!

Display the Ones You Have

One way to entice people to leave reviews is to display the ones you already have. This lets others know that people are buying your products and you're allowing them to voice their opinions. On top of that, people love the idea of getting their name displayed on your website.

Take Semper Solaris as an example. They display customer reviews from different platforms like Facebook and Yelp. This also lets people know they can leave their thoughts on those sites as well.

The Internet is an amazing yet scary place. There are new scams rising daily so people are wary when it comes to buying from unfamiliar places.

That's why displaying reviews can set potential customers at ease to know your business is trustworthy. Not only that but some customers come with questions. Reading reviews may help to answer those questions without having to reach out to customer service.

Make It Easy for Them to Leave a Review

No one likes to jump through hoops so they can voice their opinion. Keep it simple by allowing people to leave their name and maybe an email address as verification.

It doesn't need to be complicated to the point they ditch the review halfway through.

Once you start to see the reviews roll in, share them! Social media is a powerful tool that can make others aware of the exceptional service and products you offer. Be sure to get their permission first or let them know that once they leave a review, it might be shared across social media platforms.

Respond to Negative Reviews

One part of business is that you will wind up getting negative reviews. After all, no one is perfect.

It could be that they couldn't get a hold of customer service or that the product they received is defective. No matter the issue, let them know they are heard.

See how you can solve their problem and let them know by replying to their comments. Most review platforms allow you to do that so others can see you're aware of what's going on.

One caveat though: never add fuel to the fire. In other words, don't argue with the customer. Even if they're wrong, you don't want them to spread their negativity to their friends and family members because you decided to be snarky. Being polite is always the best.

The Burning Of Notre Dame Has Actually Strengthened My Catholic Faith

Corinthians 5:17 says, "Old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."


Every year, Palm Sunday is the start of Holy Week in the Christian faith. As the most sacred time of the year, those who believe Jesus died on the cross for our sins hold these days dear in our hearts. 2019's Palm Sunday, however, is now held in infamy. The very next day, the precious Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris started to burn.

As the world now knows, the famed and historic Notre-Dame de Paris was spontaneously engulfed in flames on April 15, 2019. The cause has not yet been identified precisely but is most likely due to complications during the $6.8 million renovations the cathedral is currently under. Completed back in 1345, the nearly 800-year-old church has withstood the test of time relatively well.

Until now.

The modern world watched as one of the biggest treasures of the past burned away before our eyes, Twitter even erupted in an unprecedented coverage of this world-wide tragedy as many took to social media to pour their condolences and share memories of this French icon. Religion, race and personal beliefs aside, the world collectively grieved and lent support.

While this is truly a loss on a global scale, the blow comes as a particularly harsh one to the Catholic community after a particularly difficult season of Lent. From the Pope addressing allegations of sexual assault, to backlash over the controversial theatrical release of the film "Unplanned", this latest development seemed like a cruel joke in the days leading up to Easter Sunday. I myself felt affected by this fire hundred of thousand miles away in North Carolina. One of our most beloved holy churches was ebbing away in front of us and all God could do was watch.

However, despite all that, we must look forward.

Despite much of the church being reduced to ash, some of the priceless artifacts and objects that were hidden away in the cathedral have been able to survive the ordeal; such as the crown of thorns, numerous pieces of art, the rose windows, the altar cross shown above and the iconic bells of Notre Dame. Once news of this broke out, I was strengthed to my core knowing God was indeed there.

It seems like such an oxymoron to see such a tragedy as a sign of hope, yet the Bible itself is full of those. The 7 plagues that tormented Eygpt, the Great Flood, and even the death of Christ as examples.

As children of Christ, we are told at a very young age to never question his plan. He is all knowing and has a way of making everything fall into place. God sensed that Catholics were in the midst of a troubling time and brought us this opportunity of a new beginning. The burning taking place during Holy Week can also be taken as perfect timing.

The whole premise of this week revolves around the death of Jesus at the hands of Pontius Pilate, yet miraculously returned three days later before joining Our Father in Heaven, the cathedral can very well do the same and return better than before.

It is a devastating loss but already we are seeing evidence of joyous aftermath. As I noted before, people from all walks of life are offering support and condolences to a faith they were scorning just a week prior. Priceless artifacts have miraculously been recovered and plans for rebuilding have already started. This is a sign of a new beginning, that God is backing us through it all.

Do not question His plan, just have faith. The rest will fall into place.
