Chiropractic Google Plus Reviews
There are hundreds of factors today that influence your Google rank, but I can say with certainty that the number of chiropractic Google My Business reviews you have is critical. Not only does it help you look better to Google, but reviews also show potential new patients that you are a safe choice. In this article I’m going to break down a system that you can implement in your office to boost your reviews.

The problem with Google Plus reviews is that they are hard to get. Your patients have to sign up for a Google account and then they have to figure out how to leave you a review. On top of that they also need to keep using that account they created and they need to post their review from an IP address outside your office. It’s a difficult process and it prevents most doctors from being able to gather them.
Create a Review Contest in your Chiropractic Office
There is no easy way to get reviews, but it can be done. One of the more ingenious ways I’ve seen doctors accomplish this task is by creating a review contest. The steps of the contest go like this:
- Create a handout that shows the different websites that patients can review you on such as Google Plus, City Search, Yelp, etc…
- Tell you patients that for each task they complete you will give them one entry into the drawing.
- Make the final prize something good. I’ve seen doctors give away one free year of care or maybe an iPad.
- Make sure you are in compliance with your state laws.
I’ve seen offices go from zero reviews to over fifty by implementing a system like this in their office. Remember that your reviews have to stay consistent or it looks pretty spammy to Google.
Our team at Inception Chiropractic Websites can help you design a program for your office. We’ve done most of the hard work to create the handouts. All your staff has to do is follow the system. We look forward to working with you.
