This is a great resource for retail outlets with a physical location where you can display brightly colored posters using your actual reviews to highlight your business. Or other displays to encourage your customers in filling out a review. For physical stores your kit includes:

  • Custom poster
  • Stickers
  • Window decal
  • Table tent

And for both physical located stores and online stores, you can customize images to use in social posts as well.

One kit per business. If a business has more than one location, each location is eligible for a kit.  You must have a verified Google My Business listing to be eligible.

No reviews, no problem!  The kit will generate posters and such with a call to action to write reviews, send photos, include your business hours etc.  You have a couple of designs and colors to choose from, here are just three samples:

If you need or want more then one kit, you can also get a download version, and take it to your local print shop to be printed.

To get started, visit Small Thanks with Google.

In addition, since it is the season of gratitude, we want to give a #SmallThanks to you, the local businesses that make our communities special. In this livestream, you’ll also learn how to get free customized #SmallThanks marketing materials to promote your business and turn your customers into your biggest advocates.
