Hi,

 Is is ok to ask for "good" reviews and offering an incentive. A local business just solicited us and we have never used them or worked with then on a project. I thought this was heavily frowned upon. I received a direct email.

Hello Vacation Beach P,

It is against the guidelines to offer incentives for reviews. Many websites have structured their websites and online invoicing to support getting reviews. There are many ways to get reviews without using incentives. I for one, JUST ASK... ( :

Here is a pretty good article to help you explore alternatives to using incentives.
