Salon Google Places: 5 Gold Star Rating

by David Glendinning · 29 comments

I’ve spoken about Google Places before… and those Salon/Spa owners who devour my stuff (and there are many) have grabbed hold of this tool to skyrocket their Google position to attract more clients.

This tool works. Ignore this at your peril. More and more of your prospective clients are looking on the internet for your service. Don’t let your competition beat you to it.

Today I want to talk about the 5 Star Gold rating that you can achieve with Google Places.

Here’s the benefit: Your listing stands out above all the other listings… attracting MORE clients.

Take a look at the image below… you can click on it to make it larger (then press “esc” on your keyboard to return to normal view).

Take a look at listings number 3 and 5.

See how the 5 Star Rating stands out from the other listings. I’ve just read an online case study that reports that theses listings get an INCREASED response from the minute the 5 Star Rating appears.

So it’s fair to say that these listings out perform the other listings. Yes, #1 ranking is great, but a 5 Star listing improves response.

So how can you achieve a 5 star rating?

It’s easy in principle… you just need 5 Google reviews from clients who have visited your business.

I say in principle because a client needs to know what they’re doing when creating the review.

They need to find your listing, log into their Google Account (if they have one) write out a review then publish it.

It’s not so simple if you don’t know what you’re doing.

BUT, getting a written review is well worth it for the business owner.

And I have a strategy and the instructions to do that… a way to make it easier for your clients to actually write a review.

To get this strategy you’ll need to contact me. Just leave a comment below and then I’ll email you back a copy of the strategy.

You could have a 5 Star Ranking in no time.

But remember… you want to do this before your competition does. Go do it now… just add a comment below.
