How it Works
Create a landing page to ask happy clients to leave an online review after a positive survey rating (Ok and bad ratings will not bring up links to online reviews pages). Customize your message and your links (icons) to increase the conversion rate. Choose the channels from the Crewhu list or add other online review channels.
Go to Settings > CSAT and check the Online Reviews box, as in the image below:
Copy and paste Your online links (at least one of them).
In the example below, Google and G2 were chosen to be displayed.
If you need to include another channel that is not listed, click on Add, upload an image, the name and the online reviews link. The recommended image size to upload is: width = 100px; height = 100px.
For higher conversion rates on online reviews make sure that the links take the user straight to your reviews page so your clients don't have to take extra steps to find it. Check the article at the end of this page to see the instructions on how to create direct links to your Goole Reviews and Facebook Recommendation pages.
In the Landing page workflow section, you can decide how often a request for review will be sent to your client. Select one of the following options from the drop-down menu:
Always – the user sees a landing page with a request for an online review every time he gives a positive rating;
Do not show more than n positive ratings – set the frequency that the user will get the review request. In the example below, the system will wait for 5 positive ratings until it displays the next online review request:
Do not show more than n days/hours – adjust how many days or hours your client will go without seeing the online review request on your survey landing page. In the example below, the system will wait 5 days between each request for a review after a positive rating:
After choosing your settings, simply click on the Save button at the top of the page. Your reputation management landing page will look like the image below (G2 marked as Featured):
Customize the landing page to align with your visual identity and to send your own message to your clients :)
When the client clicks on one of the buttons, the survey feedback will be copied to the clipboard to make it easy for them to paste that feedback on the chosen online review channel.
