Marketing for Lawyers: Can You Copy Reviews From Google to Facebook?


Hey Lindsay, Andy Stickle, actually I’m recording a video because I
actually get this question a lot from my clients and its probably something that
a lot of attorneys struggle with. So I’m going to answer your question but
I’m also going to create a video on the topic. So your question is, hey Andy, we have some
clients that have left reviews for us on Google, but we don’t have any for Facebook. Is there a way to put our
Google reviews on Facebook? Well, I would say the best thing
to do is contact those clients and see if they’d be willing to give you
another review, not a copy and paste review but another review on Facebook and the reason is is because if you just copy like,
so for example, first of all, you want the actual reviews to come from
the people’s accounts that wrote them. You don’t want to just because
when you leave a review it’s basically going to put their
name and their picture next to it. So, if like, so for example,
if you were to go in your account and just copy and paste the reviews
in it will look pretty suspicious if you were the one leaving all the reviews. Now, the other thing is Google might
hit you for a duplicate content penalty, I don’t know if it goes so deep for reviews
but I don’t like taking that chance. I know when a website duplicate
content can definitely hurt you. I would imagine that having the same
review appear over and over and over again on a lot of different places
would probably hurt you as well. So what I would do is I’d reach
out to the clients and I’d say, hey listen, we really loved the review that
you gave us on Facebook or on Google, we would really really appreciate it
if you’d give us a review on Facebook. That will help people that were in the same
situation that you were in when you came to us, that will help them make
a decision that they can hire us and help them make a decision
to hire the right law firm for their case because obviously you’re
the right law firm for their case. You can even say, you know,
we really appreciate this, we’ll even, you know, send you a Starbucks gift card or something just for taking the time
because we appreciate it so much. That’s the approach that I would take,
I wouldn’t do a duplicate content, I wouldn’t copy a and paste, I’d see if you
can get legitimate reviews from the people. Same thing goes Yelp, Avo,
all these different places. So, hopefully that answered your question
if you have any more questions let me know, thanks.
