Bank of reviews

A spokesman said: “The beauty of online reviews is they are instant. You can, with a little effort, build up a fantastic bank of reviews really quickly – after all, your loyal and bonded clients will probably want to help.

“So, get that client email ready to go and the reception team on hand with the iPad to start building those reviews.

“Last year’s winner, Blacks Vets in Dudley, demonstrated great client engagement with the highest volume of happy people.”
