END 041: Online Reputation Repair Made Easy

A disgruntled employee stormed out on his boss, vowing to get even.

Enraged, his new passionate mission was to slay and filet his now former employer by running straight home, firing up the ole’ home computer and leaving a nasty-gram review on this establishment’s Google business page.

Of course he did this anonymously. He even made it sound as if he were a customer who had a horrific experience.

Now I know this business. They give great service. The owner is a marvelous, hard-working, wonderful businessman and citizen in our city.

He and his staff have been striving 6 days a week for the last 27 years to give their customers a wow experience.

Then this hot headed turd-muncher comes along and tarnishes their online reputation in a very public way in a matter of minutes.

The above story is real. I am very familiar with it because they are one of my clients.

“Unfair”!  You say.  I agree 152%!

Just think!  Now every time a prospective client does a search on Google, there sits that awful review like bird poop on the hood of a freshly washed car.

Well, as you may expect, “we ain’t havin’ it”!

So, what did we do?  We got mad for about 10 minutes and then we decided to get even!  Hahaha!

I knew it was a waste of time to try to get that negative review removed from Google, so we had to devise a plan to bury that sucka! (The review, not the former employee – just thought I should make that clear. lol)

With that being said, have you ever tried to get one of your customers, clients, or patients to write your business a review on your Google page?  “Sure”, they say. “I’ll do it as soon as I get home”.

They mean well, but you and I both know that there are a million distractions before they pull into their driveway and that they will probably forget.

Plus, did you know that your customer, client or patient can only write your business a review on their home computer if they have a Google+ account?

Not everybody has one of those accounts, so your customer may not even be able to write a good review for you unless they open a Google+ account.

Okay, so now you get a sense of what we were faced with, however, after an intense quest to solve this problem we discovered a simple solution for getting customers, clients or patients to write a Google review, even if they don’t have a Google+ account.

The answer is to get them to write a review on their SmartPhones using the Google Maps app. Can you do that? Yup! You bet your sweet bippie you can.

The great news is that the Google Maps app comes standard on Android phones, however, it must be downloaded on iPhones.

The good news about Google Maps on iPhones is that since Apple screwed up their map system when it first was rolled out, a lot of iPhone users downloaded the Google Maps app because it was much more accurate and easier to use.

So just think. . .now you can have your customers, clients, or patients write a review for your business while they are in your place of business.

Now that you know this I’m sure you are thinking: “a lot of people don’t know how to use the Google Maps app to write a review”.  Man alive! Great minds think alike, don’t they?

And I’m a guessin’ you probably don’t have time to educate them on the process either.

Don’t sweat it!  I solved this problem with the aforementioned client of mine and now I want to make that solution available to you. It costs you nothing. Ever. I’ll tell you how you can get it in a moment.
