Quality AND quantity matter
How high your business ranks for local searches on Google depends on not only the score of your reviews, but the quantity too. You'll want to get as many high scoring reviews as possible to bring your listing up to the top of the rankings. It varies by location and industry, but most top Google local listings have 50+ high scoring reviews.
Google review count and score are factored into local search ranking: more reviews and positive ratings will probably improve a business’s local ranking.
Text messages have a higher open rate overall, and are more likely to end up generating reviews. If you only have an email address, use it. But entering both an email and a mobile # for a customer will give you the best chance to get a response. Please note: if you send a text message after certain daylight hours with Repsight.com, it will be queued and sent the next day due to cellular carrier business text messaging rules.
