How to – recommend a family mediation service

Last week saw the launch of our latest feature on findmediation.co.uk – add recommendations. This ‘How to’ blog details the 3 easy stages for adding recommendations.

Every mediation service on our database can be linked to by a unique reference (url) or  direct button. The button can be placed on a mediation service website simply by adding the code to a webpage.

The code is intelligent enough to determine the number of existing recommendations and displays an appropriate message.

For our example we will use Family Mediation @ David Gray LLP.

1) A client is sent an customer satisfaction email, containing the URL for the service and asked to complete if they are happy with the service:

http://www.findmediation.co.uk/mediator/343/family-mediation—david-gray-llp/

[Alternatively the code could be added to the David Gray website to show the button.]

2) Clicking the link will take the client to the unique mediation service page. The client then clicks on  ‘Share your comments and Recommend this service today’, and the entry form is displayed:

The form requires all fields to be completed – name, valid email address, comments field, then a simple ‘anti spam’ question.

On clicking ‘Recommend’ the information is submitted.

 

 

 

3) The system then sends us email notification detailing the recommendation which must be approved before going live on the website. If the content is not offensive we will then accept the recommendation. That’s the process complete. Now to show the recommendation.

Once approved, the number of recommendations for the service are shown under the logo. The example below shows a listing of mediation services in Newcastle upon Tyne:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By clicking on the service in the listing for more details, the submitted comments with the recommendation can be read.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Mediation service – direct button code

The code required for adding the button for a mediation service can be found on the service page using the ‘promote yourself‘ link (see on screenshot above). Copy and paste either the large or small button code and add it to your website.

Need help adding the button to your website? Please contact us via the contact us page.

Raise your profile – get recommended!

The internet has become a growth opportunity for numerous business. But it’s the search engines which play a huge part in this – hence why certain search engine companies have become so huge and cash rich! You’ll hear many companies who claim to get you to the top of the search listing using Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) technology. However, the problem comes when Google gets wise to the loopholes and shuts the door to reduce low quality listings. (the recent Google Penguin update has had a dramatic effect for some companies). The only long term solution to ensure high, long term listings is to write relevant content, use social media sites and get quality links to your site.

So how can you differentiate your family mediation service from other services? Getting to the top 10 in Googles’ listings is one way. Another way is to demonstrate that you provide a quality service, getting feedback from your clients that you provide a quality mediation service. This is where findmediation.co.uk comes in – #recommendfamilymediation.

Findmediation.co.uk is a free family mediation search tool, which lists mediation services in the  UK linked to the FMA, Resolution, ADR, the College of mediators and NFM. We’ve now added a new feature which enables client or referring solicitor recommendations to be added for each to the site.

We’ve developed a small piece of code, when added to a mediation service website, display’s a button inviting them to click on the link to add a recommendation for the mediation service.

Findmediation.co.uk has been designed to be ‘SEO friendly’. This means that Google searches all the information for each mediation service, looks for other sites linked from/to it and then indexes the information into it’s huge databases . Therefore by making quality links between mediation service sites and findmediation.co.uk will help to raise each mediation service profile.

The aim of findmediation.co.uk is to help people looking for family mediation to find the most suitable local mediation service to help them through the difficult process of separation.
