  1. It always pays to go another mile. And that does not only apply in asking for reviews. It also applies to making sure that customers are satisfied. Do this and you will have five star ratings one after another.

  2. Could you list some companies that have received 5 star reviews during the years.

  3. Hi Amanda,

    Great article! My name is James Jenkins and I am wanted to ask if it would be possible to re-produce your article on my site Soko Village. Soko Village is a web building platform where small business owners can build and manage their own high quality websites.

    In addition to the sites that we offer we would like to create a resource section of the site which includes information for Small Businesses. As a result I am interested in posting helpful business articles as blog posts, news letter feeds, social media etc.

    We of course would provide the correct links back to what ever site you like along bio and or contact information.

    Please let me know your thoughts.

    Thanks Amanda.

    Best Regards,


  4. Hey Amanda,

    Thanks for writing! Great tips. I think when it comes to business or rating, we cannot expect others to leave it unless we ask for it. Of course, you got ask it in a very nice way.

    A good method (like what you said) is to make it really easy for others to contact you. If not, not many are interested with ‘hassle’ stuffs 🙂

    Sharing this around and good job!
