    New free tool for Google+Local reviews

    Just thought you might like to check out the new free tool Darren Shaw and I came out with today:

    New Tool for Customer Reviews: Whitespark

    Darren just presented on it at SearchFest today. Above is the companion announcement I just posted.

    You're gonna love it. (Did I mention it's free?)

    No problem, Linda! The credit goes to Darren.

    Just wait 'til you use the thing. To paraphrase Tony Montana...

    It works great. And I like the few design options. Thanks for creating that, Phil (and Darren). I'm looking forward to version 1.1 which has the added feature of harassing people until they leave a review. Keep us posted, Phil.

    Re: New free tool for Google+Local reviews

    Awesome! Thanks a lot Phil and Darren! Great job guys!

    As you know, I use your Google Reviews Handout a lot so it's always nice to see new features being added. I've had a chance to test the new tool out and it works very fast indeed!

    I'd also like to compliment you on the new designs that have been added. As I mentioned on the post comments, they add a different "tone" to it all. I think clients will appreciate the variety. Although, I have to say, I am such a fan of the "classic"!

    Re: New free tool for Google+Local reviews

    *Hint for my #2 step above*

    Add "/about?fd=1" after your google + business page url and it will go straight to the review page.

    Example:

    https://plus.google.com/110002482086669999283/about?fd=1

    Thanks for your compliments, Bishop!

    It looks like you have a good system. The review handout I designed - the one that’s pretty plain-looking and that’s on my site - has been battle-tested over two years and about 600 business owners and my clients. It’s true there’s a decent number of steps, but customers find that to be helpful. It walks them through each step. Google Plus isn’t laid out very intuitively, so the people who would need any instructions at all generally need those instructions to go into a little detail.
