How to Collect Online Reviews

Template Email for Collecting Online Reviews

Hi Chris and Courtney!

As you know, most people go online to research before they do business with people so I'm trying to do a better job of building up some of my online presence through reviews and was wondering if you would help me get started. You will also get emails from Realtor.com and RateMyAgent directly.

Would you please help me get this going by filling out the reviews on those sites and also review me on these sites as well? It would really help with my online presence.

Both of you can go on separately to fill out reviews. 🙂

Here are the online sites that I'm trying to get reviews on.... if you could please do all of them, that would be really helpful!!!!!

Zillow https://www.zillow.com/reviews/write/?s=X1-ZU12tv2i92bvytl_5upaj
