6. I’m a new adviser and don’t have many clients to invite to review me?
No problem. You can use VouchedFor’s ‘first impression’ review invite tool to invite people to review you who you have contacted, but who are not yet a client. Here’s a blog offering 6 tips to build brilliant first impressions. Also, do ask us about the programme we are developing specifically for new advisers.
7. I use another review platform, can I add these reviews to VouchedFor?
Yes, there is an ‘import testimonials’ function that enables you to do this. Worth noting that most other review platforms feature only reviews of your company rather than you as an adviser, so don't show up if someone searches for you by name (which many prospective clients do).
8. I am already a member of VouchedFor, how can I benefit?
It's very important to SimplyBiz and VouchedFor that this partnership is fair to existing members of VouchedFor.
To ensure this is the case, existing SimplyBiz VouchedFor members who have not previously received a free period can claim 1 month free. Simply email email@example.com to arrange this.
9. What is the key to success on VouchedFor?
It's simple. Make inviting reviews a habit. Invite every prospect and client to review you.
More prospects will become clients. Because they will read your client reviews while leaving their's.
More clients will refer to you. Because they can see it's not just them who thinks you're great.
More accountants, solicitors, estate agents will refer to you. Because it's reassuring to know you'd invite reviews from anyone they might send your way.
PLUS your profile will stay up to date with lots of recent reviews. Reassuring everyone.
