Often times, business owners think about getting 5-star reviews; however, this article talks about how to give a 5- star review. Check out another one of our articles if you want to learn How to Get More Google Reviews!

Want to leave a 5-star review and don’t know where to begin? It’s a good idea to create a checklist in your head of what to review a business on. Here are five aspects that you should add to your checklist:

Quality of work

How satisfied were you with the work that was done? Were your expectations met? Were they exceeded?

How quickly the work was completed

Was the discussed deadline met? Was the work completed well before the deadline?

How well the business communicated during the process

Did the business talk with you about ideas and target dates? Did they answer all of your questions?

What value the company added to you/your business

Would you have been better or worse off having not worked with them? Would you be the same? If it didn’t make much of a difference whether or not you worked with them, you can give some constructive criticism without leaving a bad review.

Overall experience

Overall, how was the work they did? How was working with that business? Would you recommend them to someone else? When you think about your experience with that company, what kind of emotions do you feel?

Keep in mind, this article mostly focused on giving a Google review, but the same thought process applies no matter what platform you review on. Some reviews may ask you to rate specific things instead of just one overall rating, and in that case, you should still keep this checklist in mind.

5-star reviews are the lifeblood for businesses. If you go through your mental checklist and you decide that everything was great, but then you give a business 4 stars instead of 5, you could be hurting them. If you have no complaints, then there is no reason not to give a business a 5-star review. Think about if you have a business, how it would feel if someone gave you 5 stars in every category but then only 4 stars overall. Be thoughtful when writing your review and express what you were most excited about. Share something personal! Potential customers reading your review of a business are going to be more persuaded to go with that company the more personal and captivating your review is. Write about numerous aspects of the business as to give people a good sense of the type of work they perform. Want to leave a 5-star review and don’t know where to begin?

“It is with great pleasure that I write a recommendation for Eldie Web Design and Marketing. Three words to describe this company: integrity, professional and creative. I experienced the expense and excruciating pain of two previous website developers before I brought my project to Justin. Justin reviewed the other web developers’ failures and delivered a product that not only met my specific requirements but exceeded my every expectation. He meticulously dissected my marketing goals and generated a brilliant design strategy. The website he created effectively and efficiently communicates to my desired customer with a stroke of genius. The customer service he provided along with his prompt courteous interaction made it a pleasure to work with him. This is a phenomenal company and I highly recommend investing your time and money with Eldie Web Design and Marketing.”
