This is 2019 after all, so of course there are a lot of software out there that automate reviews. Blue Corona has a great post about the best review generation software. But, if your’re a small business that is just starting out – it may be best to hold off on the software for now because it can set you back anywhere from $90 – $999 a month.
Sending one message at a time may be tedious to start, but it is absolutely worth it! You can actually set up an automated email campaign and just input their name and email address into your email campaign software (mailchimp has a great free setup).
