Automated, ease and truthful reviews are key to business. Matt Prados of ReviewWave talks the do’s and don’t of online review, how to get 5 star google reviews and yelp reviews, can you use incentives and templates, EHR integration and how to handle negative reviews.
What started out as a digital marketing business 10 years ago, has transitioned into proprietary software 2 years ago that can serve 1000’s of doctors instead of just dozens. Matt Prados was specializing in maximizing conversion optimization on the back end of funnels.
Soon he realized that Reviews are one of the single most important ways to build trust in the community and have lookers turn into callers. 84% of surveyed people say they trust Online Reviews as much as Personal recommendations. The problem he found from analyzing all the practices he helped was that the best made manual systems to try and get reviews were only mildly successful at getting the actual reviews and offices tended to drop the ball and forget to do it.
What Matt has come up with is Review Wave. It’s a completely automated funnel with text messages and emails to encourage patients to leave a 5 star review. He has it integrated with most of the major players in EHR too. Now your staff doesn’t have to bother patients and be awkward always asking for reviews and making it streamlined.
