Step by Step Guidance


This doc uses a fictitious company called Lustrous Lashes, experts in the application of artificial lashes. The owners are Brandy and Candy - (and for the record, I know very little about artificial lashes. 😄)
The receptionist, Mandy, is encouraged to add 4 happy customers a day to the tracker, using the Add Customer data form. She chooses customers who express an interest in submitting a review when asked at check-out after their service.
Also, she is assigned the responsibility of tracking the customer review responses throughout the workflow. Mandy finds this doc - well, very handy! (and so too, do Brandy and Candy🙃)
Please note that the GMAIL and SMS buttons and some of the other buttons and tables have dummy data and will not send external data. Copy the doc and add your personal data during the set-up process to customize the doc to your specifications.

Manually track and update your Google my Business rating in the dashboard. There are paid widgets that can be added to the dashboard which will automatically pull the rating, but that is beyond the scope of this doc.

The 1st automation is set for 10 AM, Monday through Friday. I made this automation time based because I also wanted to have the option to request the review manually. The pushed buttons will -
Request a review via SMS and Email, if the button is active,
Email a second request for review, if there is no response after one week,
To reiterate, you can also request a review directly from the .
