As you’re receiving great ratings and feedback from your clients, you’re probably thinking: how can I share this online for potential clients to see? Wouldn’t it be amazing if they see these great ratings when they search for my clinic location?
Jane’s got you covered!
Before you do that, it’s important to note that some disciplines are not allowed to post reviews publicly. If you’re unsure of this, please consult with your governing body to confirm whether you’re able to publicly market patient testimonials.
Jane is working hard on creating a region-specific list with some easy to digest information based on different regulatory bodys’ marketing standards. You can view the list here.
Setting up your location for Google Reviews
Okay great! Now that you’re certain you’re able to post testimonials for marketing purposes, let’s get started! When a client leaves you a review, Jane’s Ratings & Reviews feature can suggest they also leave a review on Google so they can add their voice to your clinic’s marketing efforts!
To enable this suggestion, make sure you have the Ratings & Reviews feature enabled on your account. If you’re not sure how to do that, check out our guide for setting up Ratings & Reviews.
Once the Ratings & Reviews feature is enabled, we’re going to add Google’s Place ID to your clinic location. Each location has its own Place ID so you can follow these steps for each one. Let’s get started.
💡 You’ll also need your Google My Business setup. Here’s some information if you’d like to learn more about Google My Business for healthcare providers.
Add your Google Place ID
As an Account Owner or Full Access user, you can add your Google Place ID to a clinic location. You can do this by heading to Settings > Ratings & Reviews. Under the Google Reviews section, you’ll see a list of every clinic location in your account.
To make it easy for you to find your location’s Place ID, simply click into the Search field here for the location and start typing your clinic location’s name. As you type, the autocomplete will help you search through Google to find the location.
Once you’ve found the location, click the name from the autocomplete and you’ll see your Place ID has been filled in for you. Don’t forget to click Save at the bottom of the page to save your Place ID.
Now after your patients leave a review, they’ll have the option to copy their review by clicking the Copy button, and opening Google Reviews to post it for your location!
What if you don’t find your clinic on Google? Make sure you’ve signed up for Google My Business to verify your business and you as the owner. You can find out more and sign up through Google’s Welcome to Google My Business guide.
💡If you prefer to add your Place ID manually, simply add a check to “Manually enter Place ID” and paste your Place ID into the appropriate field for your location.
And if you’d like to read & reply to your reviews on Google, they have a great how-to on this here.
