The Right Way (and the Wrong Way) to Ask for Reviews
"Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about the right way and the wrong way to ask for reviews. But first we're talking about asking for us what kind of websites are we referring to I'm assuming we're talking about YELP G to Capterra decides the websites. Well. First off it just hit me I. Think we're almost four years into this podcast. We are. Oh, we're almost at fifteen hundred. We are four years into it as of this recording. Right it's crazy. Thinking about that. All right. So the reason reviews are important is If you do reviews happy for your anniversary Yay. If you get reviews. See back in the day when Amazon was I doing e commerce people buying products on Amazon and then Jeff Basil's was like Yeah I want to let people review them why you WanNa let them review it. He's like whatever Chris the best experience is what's going to help me win in the long run. And that was right and then reviews weren't just used for e contract started being used for to be services software literally anything that you can think of. and. The reviews are effective is look as humans. We all make mistakes aren't perfect but ones if you when you spend your dollar or your pound or your ruby or whatever currency using. If you can make sure you're getting what you want, and that's what reviews do. They don't guarantee that you're getting what you spend your money on, but it increases the chances that you're getting what you want when you spend your money. Yup I'm just GonNa give some real life examples where I just remember I got a good experience or a bad experience I. Remember one time post made. Using deliver rouw whatever door dash, wherever you dear food deliver UBEREATS, whatever. So Post mates delivered something to me and the guy sent me this really long text afterwards like you know gas is really expensive and it's really hard to drive to you and all that and he's like, give me this entire story. I really appreciate if you leave a five star review and also give me a tip as well. It looked like it was a can message and it just was not a good experience. Afterwards, that is a wrong way. DASS reviews a right way I remember afterwards I bought a product and then there was a card it only asked for review but gave me something else as well. So it sort of is me to write through and say, Hey, no pressure at all. But if you leave a review, it'd be. Really. Helpful for us and just please be honest and also by the way, here's another bonus for you. So they didn't need to do that and it was really optional and they kept it lighthearted that actually may be wanting to do it because if you look at whatever have online yelp or whatever. I, usually don't write reviews but if I'm compelled to do it because I felt incentivize do it in essence is. Getting at is the right way is to help people and do what's best for them. You can always do the soft ass but the wrong way is bribery and saying, write a good review and I'll give you this and you see some companies doing that it's just not genuine and don't look at reviews as off I get more five star reviews than people are going to buy from me well, if you're faking. The reviews in your incentivizing people in the wrong way, what's going to happen is you'll get the high reviews temporarily but then event, you'll keep getting negative views as well or you want people to just leave real reviews and when the leave bad reviews figure out how you can improve your parked or experience or your service. So that way in the future people nationally way better reviews which will naturally increase your sales. You might as well ask for the real feedback can you give me some honest feedback whether it's to stars four stars, five stars whatever because it helps make you better what I found from one of my friends restaurants is that they're yelp just started exploiting with reviews because they just kept getting better and better and they kept driving an amazing experience. The food was amazing. Experience was amazing. Amazing to be there and boom. It was four and a half stars and hundreds of reviews right if you can do that cut into what Neil was saying earlier with Jeff, bezos obsess over the customer and you drive a good experience you're for sure gonNA.

Just remarking school listeners, all you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel and today we're GONNA talk about five alternative ways to promote your content in two thousand twenty saga I I? One is zest. That's Z. E. S., T., I S. so I mentioned this a couple of episodes ago, but zest is a little known basically promotion to especially. If you're doing marketing business related content, you can put your content out there i. think you can pan the CBC basis, but you can use promote your content number two most people. People don't do this and I. Don't know why I don't know if you do eric, but we've been using adds a lot recently for content, it works out really wellness, super cheap, and it drives a ton of traffic funny enough. We started driving pinterest at traffic to our content that has affiliate links, and we're getting a positive roi so cheap while I mean any ads are arbitrage I like. Oh, you're arbitraging, but that's like anything so anyway, but usually to fill. It links as hard to make a positive Roi right, but. Or so cheaper to say, this is great while number three, you can do to Boola out brain yet to boone out brain these. Are you know the little I? Guess content recommendations you see on the bottom of like CNN and all these other big website so those I've seen a lot of people may at work I personally haven't made it work before so anyway you can test it out number four and this one works like a charm i. do this all the time, but very few people cop me and I don't know why I push notifications same anytime. I have contact I collect. Push notifications, subscribers and I'll do blast out and I kid you not like I can get. Get seven ten thousand extra visitors to blog, plus just by being a push notification, and you can go to subscribers dot com to sign up for that, and then the fifth one fifth one would be twitter actually actually I don't think people utilize twitter, enough or just leave it at that, but I actually see the same people's promoted tweets over and over, and that does like the branding does affect me like I. Was Andrew Wilkinson from tiny Houston that you want to sell your business want to say like I. keep seeing it over time like that's kind of embedded in me now, so twitter ads I think it's definitely worth taking a look at number six is a bonus. If you're in SAS. Software or agency YOU COULD USE G to to promote your business capterra is another option that. These review sites basically give you an option to promote what you have going on or. Promoting content, but you're promoting your business, so that's a bonus that doesn't really fit at number seven. Another bonus doesn't fit for all of you. Is Start collecting phone numbers on your website like you know how you collect email? Start collecting phone numbers. We're starting to test out texting people whenever released new content and the click rates are through the roof, the unsubscribe rates and people saying stop the taxi also through the roof and. And early high, but after the first one that you said, the unsubscribe rate is drastically slowing down, so it gets better after the second third for tax and people like it, but sending him text messages every time you have new content we're finding that works really well. What are you using the tax because I know a Gary V's community? What do you use Tokyo Api integration I've devs. And how do you see the open? Open, rates and the UNSUBSCRIBE 's so whenever we ended up texting the open rates I. Don't know we twit. UTM codes in the links were able to e the click rates, but if I send out a hundred text messages were getting like sixteen, Seventeen Eighteen,

Hey thank you for having me Yeah I love motor sports and I have been racing cars since when I was fourteen years sold. My last race was the twelve hours off. I will be well into your thousand eighteen so in miles per hour. How fast have you driven even one nine hundred miles per hour okay? That's fast. I remember one time. I was come down a highway and it was like kind of coming down a hill a little bit so there was like a decline on a highway. I think the speed limit was like seventy five miles per hour and I look down in. My speedometer. Had me going over one hundred miles per our and I freaked out. I'm like Oh my God I'm going over one hundred and I liked quickly like peeled back to like eighty or eighty five or something. So you've you've gone about twice voices fast as I have but again. I'm an amateur euro pro so that's not a big surprise but it was interesting. Matteo gave fire nation. A little exposure to in the introduction. Introduction is the fact that you have now built your passions in your business and now your life around sleep and of course we're GonNa talk all about your company. Eight sleep and wide unique mission. Is what the goals that you have for this company are but before we get into any of that stuff why sleep. What do you believe leave is important about sleep? And what are your thoughts around that topic. Sleep is one of three pillars of health. Right health is based on sleep nutrition. Three Sean and fitness and they're all of them pillars but at the end of the day sleep is really the foundation. Kills if you start sleeping to through our tonight. The regional trainings workout Notation that really matters sleep at the same time. Something that you every single day you cannot skip keep it and he's still a third of your life if you look at the average lifetime About Twenty five thirty years of your life spent asleep so it's really important that people start taking care of that part because it simpler than workout But you still need to be talk was a what do and what you dont. They're already a lot of studies that crew the sleep on Luxury D.. On health diabetes in some pockets on so lack of sleep can have very negative repercussions on on your health fire nation. Let me break this down for you. I have a virtual trainer four days a week. I am training my body on waits on high intensity interval training. I'm doing my Peleton on bike sessions. I'm doing that weight training four days a week. I'm on the Peleton bike. Five six sometimes even seventies per week. I've got my fitness on the control. I have a nutritionist. I have have a functional medicine. Doctor like I have really dialed in my Mac. Rose my proteins my fats. My carbs like I really understand that side of things like I have dialed that in. But guess what what when I wake up after a crappy night asleep. I don't eat right I I- bail on my fitness. Just skip it because I just don't feel like I can actually really function and do that so no matter the fact that I have the best intentions in the world. If I don't get at least a good night's sleep my nutrition suffers my fitness suffers. There's nothing that I can do around that but let me tell you the flip side when I wake up after a great night sleep and I'm talking asleep score score in the nineties because I have an ordering that tracks my sleep so I know exactly what I've gotten great deep sleep when my rem is on point when my wake-up overnight overnight my quote unquote. restfulness is low. And I wake up in the morning and I am absolutely energized. I feel rested. I give one of those big like cat yawns stretching stretching to the world I can take over the world I crush my workouts. I eat right. I'm hydrating correctly. I'm doing all the things. So when Matteo who says that sleep is the foundation pillar of those three pillars. He couldn't be more right because without a lease a good night's sleep you can just throw those other two pillars awake. You'RE NOT GONNA be able to operate at a high level on them. So let's keep moving forward Matteo and talk about specifically eight sleep. This is a company that you've have created that you founded you have a very strong mission with this company.

"It's a great tool not only for doing the path at hand. But also using the data from that asset him to begin to figure out how to fine. Tune your go to market. And, you know, John one of the things that I think people really need to keep in mind. When you're looking for accounting software is what do you really need? I really encourage people to think about buying software like hiring people and best practices in hiring. Individuals. Are I to bigger out your needs less like what is right and clear job description? What is this this role going to do what you know KPI's? What what are the key metrics that you're going to hold that that role to to know that it was worth hiring them? I will they demonstrate there are y. What what is the most important skill set that they need to bring to the table. Sometimes you really care about technical expertise. Don't care so much about personality and how kind of outgoing or have house fisted a manager. They are you just need somebody to get the work done. Sometimes you really care about the management stuff. And you kind of got other people to do the technical staff or sometimes or I would hope in every case people care about it being, you know, people being Bill Jim show up. They what they mean mean what they say. Be as attributes sort of the same way that you would interview a person for a job and the most important part about that is actually I being super fair with yourself about what that job is. And what success is higher gonna know that it successful in the same way. When you're buying software really think about it like an interview, which means in finance calming, for example, you know, clearly, you're gonna want double entry accounting, for example. And you're probably gonna want being able to import transactions from your Bank and cloud based accounting software for all the benefits we mentioned earlier probably gonna want some reporting tools to get that extra kind of juice from the data exhaust, you probably gonna want to count on the access if you were working with external accounted, but you may or may not meet invoicing or multi-currency support or payroll processing or payment. Passing or third party integrations may or may not be that portent to you. And so you gotta know what's like essential. It's what the central that software is going to play and make sure that those things are really strong. So when you read your of us, make sure that the meat of what you're trying to get everybody likes, and then be choosy about how much you're willing to pay for the stuff that doesn't really matter to you again, you know, like we talked about before review our great base figure that out and an if you're not sure exactly what features. What what optionality you need always start by? You know, finding those one one guy. You know, accounting software buying guide, for example, something that we put out every year like how should you go about thinking about this category of software? What's important? What's not important that can really help as well. Clear. You said a lot of awesome things today. But my favorite is still be ridiculously helpful because fire nation, if you can embody that in everything that you do you're going to see at a good high awesome level. And that's what kept here at us. They are ridiculously helpful. And that's why they're so successful. So clear a lot of great takeaways from this episode, but give us one thing you want to make sure that we walk away with we keep it in our memory banks. What's one thing that you want us to make sure that we get from our chat today. I guess I'm gonna say I want you guys remember to what is that? If you're looking for software. Capterra's a great place to start that search, but but the the ridiculously. Why actually concerned that would be helpful because it really will save you time.

And then couple months down the road. You're like man, this doesn't do actually what I wanted to do. But something like. Capterra fire nation. I mean, you can read the reviews you look at the ratings. You can stop that before it even starts because you have the opportunity to see exactly what's going on, you know, great analogy than I would use right now. 'cause I just got back from a sixty day European trip. We used Airbnb for everything and tell you how many times those reviews on Airbnb saved our lives like so much street noise at night, or like, the shower doesn't work or whatever it might be.

And I decided I didn't wanna stay at oracle in part because of the travel, but in part because sort of some of the cultural values in the way, the oracle machine. Works weren't totally aligned with mine. And and I found that capterra really had sort of the organizational orientational world that I think is really important are for core. Values are to seek the good to do. Great work to be ridiculously helpful and to keep on getting better and your tune for me here was to sort of take these really lived values inside of the organization and actually help them manifest more.
