How to get reviews on your preferred platform?

The next update to our feedback app is all about giving restaurants the power to steer customer reviews to the platforms they value most, like Google, Yelp, Facebook, or TripAdvisor. 

📣 Our feedback app is getting an update that will let restaurants copy and insert the link of their preferred review platform for customer feedback redirection in the settings of the app. This streamlined approach aims to simplify the review collection process.

This approach isn’t just about getting feedback; it’s about making sure it’s seen where it counts. Gathering positive reviews where their customers are most active means restaurants can significantly improve their online presence. 

This leads to more customers noticing them, smoother booking experiences, and ultimately, a better run restaurant with happier diners.

How to get a Facebook review link?

💡 A Facebook review link is a direct URL that takes customers to the review section of a business’s Facebook Page. This enables customers to easily leave feedback about their experiences with the business on its Facebook platform.

Positive Facebook reviews are gold for your business. They build trust, attract new customers, and boost your online presence. But getting those reviews can be tricky. The standard approach – sharing your Facebook page URL – often leads to frustration for users who have to log in first.

This guide shows you how to create a custom Facebook review link that eliminates the login hassle, making it easier for customers to leave a review.

What you’ll need: A Facebook Business Page (If you don’t have one, creating one is free and easy!)

1. Find your review page URL:

  • Go to your Facebook Business Page.
  • Look for the reviews tab in the left-hand sidebar menu. Click on it.

💡Example: You land on the reviews section of your venue’s Facebook page.
The URL in the address bar might look like this: https://www.facebook.com/XYZ/reviews/

2. Build your custom review link with the custom formula:

https://www.facebook.com/login/?next=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F<YourFacebookPageName>%2Freviews%2F

💡 Example: Our venue’s custom review link would look like this: https://www.facebook.com/login/?next=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2FXYZ%2Freviews%2F

How to get a TripAdvisor review link?

💡 A Tripadvisor review link is a special web address that takes users directly to the page where they can leave a review for your business on Tripadvisor. This is different from simply sharing your general Tripadvisor listing URL.

  1. Find your Tripadvisor listing: Head to Tripadvisor.com and search for your business.
  2. Click write a review: Once you find your listing, look for a bright button that says write a review and click it.
  3. Copy the link: You’ll be taken to a special review page. Copy the entire web address from your browser’s address bar.

How to get a Yelp review link?

💡 A Yelp review link is a shortcut for customers to leave a review on your Yelp business page. It skips them to the write a review section, making it faster and easier to share their experience.

  1. Search for your business: Open a web browser and go to https://m.yelp.com/. Search for your business name in the search bar.
  2. Click write a review: On your business listing page, locate the write a review button and click on it.
  3. Copy the URL: The write a review button will take you to a dedicated review page for your business. Copy the entire URL from the address bar at the top of your browser.

This URL will typically look something like: https://www.yelp.com/writeareview/business/your-business-id
where your-business-id is a unique code for your Yelp listing.
