Leaving a Google review for a company has never been easier.

Google only requires your customers to have a Google account.

“That sounds like a pain, What if I don’t have a Google account, or can’t be bothered logging in?”

Good news everybody. Most people with an iPhone or Android device are able to leave a Google review with minimum hassle.

*This guide was requested by Beauty & Bloom, but you can apply these steps to any business

Step 1 – Check if you have a Google account:

Not sure if you have an account with Google? No problem, you can type any of your email addresses you might think is linked to Google, right into their account page – remember pretty much any of Googles services or products result in you having a google account, even if you didn’t realise it.

https://www.google.co.uk/accounts/

It will tell you right away if they recognise the address or not if they recognise the address: You have a google account

If your email address is recognised, simply sign in, or reset your password. Congratulations, you have a google account!

If your email address is not recognised, unfortunately, you do not have a Google account, but feel free to make one here. https://accounts.google.com/signup 

Step 2 – What device do you want to leave a review with?

Pick one of the following devices for instructions on how to leave a review:

Desktop

  1. Open an internet browser (such as Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox)
  2. Go to this link: https://goo.gl/CPzDBR
  3. Simply select your star rating, and leave a review

If you don’t use the link in step 2, just or type into google “Business name” + “Location” – which in this case would be “Beauty and Bloom Mayfair” – and click the reviews box.
