Review Your Local Electrologist!

The Dos and Don'ts of Posting Online Reviews

The testimonials that people write for their electrologist tend to include phrases like "changed my life" and "so professional" and "my best friend".

If this describes your experience with permanent hair removal, consider thanking your electrologist in a way that lets others know that she is a great choice by posting a positive review online. A good review can really make a difference in the life of the next person seeking electrolysis services in their area. It can also make a big difference to your electrologist, who can really stand out in the crowd because of your kind and honest words.

The various review websites sometimes have protections in place to filter out fake reviews, so consider the following list of Dos and Don'ts to help your positive review be seen.

Positive Online Review DOs

  • DO create an account, even if the site allows anonymous reviews. If possible, post your positive review on a site you use regularly.
  • DO fill out your profile as completely as possible to increase the validity of your review.
  • DO provide information that would be valuable to someone reading your review.
  • DO use your own words.

Positive Online Review DON'Ts

  • DON'T hit and run. Creating an account, immediately posting a five star review, then never using the site again is likely to trigger the filters.
  • DON'T copy and paste from other reviews.
  • DON'T say that readers should ignore the opinions of other reviewers.
  • DON'T post content-free reviews like "Great service!"

Where to Post Your Positive Online Review

There are an endless number of sites where you can post reviews, but the most useful ones for your electrologist are:

  • Google: Search for your electrologist on Google. If they have a Google+ page, there will be links where you can post a positive review.
  • Yelp: Search for your electrologist on Yelp. If they have a listing, click to post a positive review. Yelp uses extremely aggressive filtering, so make sure you follow the Dos and Don'ts to give your review the best chance of being accepted.
