Transfer of reviews

Hello I started my small business last year and I have received a review via email. It's more of a testimonial from a very satisfied client. Can I possibly add this to my review page? it would be my first review on Google and I would really feel awkward asking my client to post the same review on Google.

Asking your client to leave his/her review on your Google page is the only way to do it. You're not able to transfer it over.

Thanks for the feedback. This is very inconvenient however and asking my client to "re-post" the review would look very unprofessional. We as business owners have so many different avenues for customers to post reviews, It would be great to have them all transferable. 

I can understand the reasoning behind this rule though as there would be potential for abuse.
