Positive Reviews can Result in Direct Lead Generation

Member reviews are among the first things people see when they search your

 studio category on Google or Google Maps

Why Google Reviews Are Important?

Google reviews are a big part of your Google knowledge panel and are critical to your studio’s local ranking on Google Maps and Search.

When people use search terms like “Gym nearest to me,” they want to join a gym! If your studio doesn’t have enough reviews, you WILL NOT SHOW UP IN THE SEARCH RESULTS and you’ll lose potential customers every day.

As a franchisee owner or a studio manager, you’re busy running your business. But don’t worry, that’s where our team comes in! Let us help you.

Google Maps Studio ID

We’ll create a link that your members can click to leave a review on your studio on Google. You can easily share the link with your members to encourage them to write reviews and rate your studio.

Owner Review Response Notification

Google Announcement:

We’re launching notifications to inform your customers when you respond to their reviews, with plans to release mobile push notifications at a later date. When businesses respond, or update responses, to customer reviews, the customer will receive an email notification.

The business’s response is published immediately and the notification is sent 5 minutes later. This 5 minute delay allows time for the merchant to make any corrections to their response after submitting.The notification email informs the customer of a reply to their review, and contains a link to a page with the full owner response. Note: The review response is published immediately on Search and Maps.
