Asking for reviews on Yelp

Yelp has a policy against asking for reviews, which you should be aware of before using Reviewshake to ask your customers for reviews on Yelp.

Proceed with caution when asking for reviews on Yelp

One method you could use to err on the side of caution is instead of asking your customers for a review, simply alluding to your Yelp profile as so:

Hi [CUSTOMER NAME],

I see you’ve recently visited our establishment, [business name]. I wanted to follow-up with you to check in about your experience. Did you enjoy everything?

We are committed to providing our customers with a fantastic experience, and your feedback helps us make that possible.
