Google notifications

You’ve probably heard that your salon needs to be on Google My Business. For one, this is where more and more customers go to find local salons these days. And once you’ve claimed your listing, you have the ability to add and edit information about your business, reply to reviews, post photos, and more. 

The best part is, it’s free!

With a Google Business listing, you also have the option to receive email notifications every time your business gets a new Google review. This is super helpful for keeping you up to date on your reviews. 

When you get a new review, whether good or bad, you can respond to it right away because you were made aware of it. 

It’s best to respond to reviews as soon as possible—within a day or two after having received it. It looks good to Google and to potential customers. 

This is the do-it-yourself option of review management. So if you opt to do this for your business, you’ll want to dedicate time (yours or an employees) to tracking reviews, monitoring complaints, posting replies, and more.
