Timing is everything
The key to getting more Google reviews is timing! If you get the timing right, you can increase the number of reviews you receive by up to 8 times!
The best time to ask a student to leave you a review is when they are the most excited and engaged. This is usually a week or two into the course. You will have to play about with this to find the optimum time. New Students are more likely leave reviews that older ones because they are feeling the most grateful for your service. Asking at the optimum time can get 40% of your students to leave a review as opposed to approx. 10% of old students.
