To see the full benefit of TrustedSite Reviews, we recommend collecting a good number of high-quality reviews from your customers. There are several ways you can encourage people to review your site:
- Install the review widget
This is the little button that floats on the left side of your site and lets your visitors leave reviews right there. Learn how to enable the widget here.
- Email your customers
A great way to get more reviews is to email customers who have already purchased from your site. Just send them a short email with a link to your reviews site like this https://www.trustedsite.com/site/example.com/
- Add a review link to your email signature
Adding a link to your TrustedSite Reviews page is not only a great way to get more people to review your site but it simultaneously shows off the reviews you already have.
- Offer incentives to review your site
Sometimes it may be useful to offer your customers a small incentive for reviewing your site. You could give them 10% off a future purchase or a free shipping coupon but make sure you’re giving the incentive to everyone - not just those customers who leave good reviews. You may be required by law to disclose any incentive you provide in exchange for reviews.
- Post your review link on your social media accounts
If people liked you on Facebook or follow you on Twitter, there’s a good chance they’ll also be willing to review your site.
Please carefully review any applicable laws regarding endorsements and solicitation of reviews. The United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has published answers to commonly asked questions on their website. If you believe some reviews are spam or inappropriate, let us know and we’ll take a look.
