Would the following promotion adhere to Google Guidelines (Taken from a Forbes article on reviews and FTC)?

 

"Hey _______ Hope all is well and we want you to know that we greatly appreciate your support! We simply love being part of this great local (insert town/city) community. To help us better serve you, we would appreciate a quick review on our Google Local Business page, (insert link here) and we hope to see you soon.

Have a great day!

Hi @Chris F,

 

I like the top part and that is perfectly within the guidelines and best practices. 

 

Adding the promo code seems gimmicky and is offering a promo for the review, which is not fitting with the guidelines. I would not use that lower part at all. 

 

All the Best,

 

James
