So I'm working on a method to get more google reviews and user pictures.

Is pretty simple. Just allow people to post pictures with their business cards.

Ask for a 5 star review of course, then enable them to do so.

What do you think?

So I think a great idea to get more google reviews is

1. Ask for 5 star reviews
2. Encourage people to post pictures of their experience.
3. Allow them to post their business cards
 
also respond to all reviews, especially the negative one. Who knows maybe you can help them with their concerns, so they can change their minds and you get 5 star instead of 1.

You need to be careful here.

Get reviews on Google - Guidelines - Google My Business Help

Reviews on Google provide valuable information about your business to both you and your customers. Business reviews appear next to your listing in Maps and Search, and can help your business stand out on Google.
To get reviews on Google, encourage your customers to spread the word about your business by following these best practices:
  • Remind your customers to leave reviews. Let them know that it’s quick and easy to leave business reviews on mobile devices or desktop computers. Learn how to leave Google reviews
  • Reply to reviews to build your customers' trust. Your customers will notice that your business values their input, and possibly leave more reviews in the future. You can also create and share a link that customers can click to leave a review. Learn how to read and reply to reviews
  • Verify your business so your information is eligible to appear on Maps, Search, and other Google services. Only verified businesses can respond to reviews. Learn how to verify your business
Reviews are only valuable when they are honest and unbiased. (For example, business owners shouldn't offer incentives to customers in exchange for reviews.) Read more in our review posting guidelines. If you see a review that’s inappropriate or that violates our policies, you can flag it for removal.

Thanks DJ! Is totally like having a billboard for people to leave their business cards is what I'd call it.

OK. I don't think that will get you into trouble with Google. But officially you can only ask for reviews, not 5 star reviews. That's up to the reviewer.

Oh I see... That's a good point, djbaxter. I hope our specialized service does the job for that!

Also I just found out you can use emojis to respond to reviews!

Thanks Luckyinlife!
