Sending Review Invitation Reminders

Podium limits how often you can generate a review invitation link for a specific contact—every 60 days. Mobile carriers will treat messages with the exact same text as spam and may begin blocking your messages. Instead you should write a new message each time you send a customer a review invitation reminder.

To send a review invitation reminder:

  1. Go to Inbox.
  2. Find the conversation that needs a reminder.
