I have a free listing on just about every website out there. Some allow reviews to be posted. In the past I have asked for reviews on either my Google account (where just about everyone finds me) or Wedding Wire (when you get 3 great reviews in a year they give you a Bride's Choice Award status). Last month I signed up with The Knot and as of this month they allow reviews on The Wedding Channel website. Besides those 3, I think there are 3 or 4 more sites that allow reviews I am on.

So my question is, when you ask for reviews where do you ask for them to be posted. I know The Knot is a place that most brides go to look (I lived on that site when planning my wedding), but if I don't keep the service I will lose those reviews when my listing is deleted.

I will be asking for reviews as soon as I get an order from a contact at the knot.com. so far I've had a tasting and a cancelled order from there. hopefully my tasting today will result in a booking... this one's also from the knot.
so far, I just have a couple of reviews on my website.
I think I'll ask the client to post a review in the after event thank you note I send out.

Never have asked for a review...but, love when they give one. Most of mine do it on the forums of the Knot or Wedding Wire and of course...facebook.

I send my brides a link to the site where they can post a review and in return I give them a $5 or $10 off next order as my way of saying thank you.
