W E D D I N GW I R E E D U C AT I O N G U I D E • 7 Sometimes, we know it can be hard to get couples' attention or even remember to make the ask! Here are a few ways to help you collect reviews from your past clients: GIVE THEM TIME. Don't ask for a review the day after the wedding – they're most likely on their honeymoon (or not checking email!). Wait 2-3 weeks following the event to make the request. REPLY TO ALL YOUR REVIEWS. Writing a review is not a requirement for your past clients, so be sure to say thanks to the glowing reviews and reply professionally to any less-than-perfect reviews. Anyone who reads your replies afterward will appreciate your client service mentality. SHOW OFF. Add your reviews to your website, blog, social networks, email signature or even your showroom! Couples will see your rave reviews and be more likely to write their own. All business' can add the Reviews Widget, and work towards review awards programs badges. CREATE A TEMPLATE FOR YOUR REVIEW REQUEST EMAIL. Having a review request email with a direct link to your custom Review URL on hand to share or personalize and send any time makes sending the request quick. You can even pre-schedule requests with the Review Collector! FOLLOW UP. Give them a few days to get to it, and then send a gentle reminder that you would really appreciate a review if they are willing. Being politely persistent (but not pushy!) pays off.
