On your web page, in the email, and incrementally on all the social media networks like Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, add the links to your profiles where your loyal and frequent customers can leave reviews.
- Ask customers for reviews
One of the most important and easy ways to get more and more online reviews is to always ask your guests to leave their remarks on your profile. This will increase your ratings and create a better representation of your restaurant on the online platform.
