The reason it's called "Small Thanks" is that it is specifically for small businesses to connect directly with their reviewers. You need to jump on this. The lowdown is that you can now leverage your Google reviews on a deeper level. You can even show off your 5-star reviews by easily creating a cool poster via Google. This is a not so subtle push to attain more reviews on your Google My Business (GMB) listing. Reviews are one of the best ways to WIN in local search!
