Review Marketing & Generation for Everyone!

Does your business need more reviews? Or are you an online marketer who’s client’s would benefit from more reviews? If so, Starfish Reviews is the plugin for you! Starfish Reviews allows you to create and run review generation marketing campaigns right on your (or your client’s) WordPress website. Easily encourage positive, 5-star ratings and reviews on almost any online review platform.

How Review Generation Works

  1. Create a “funnel” with the familiar, friendly interface.
  2. Send the Funnel URL to your customers, users, followers, audience, etc and ask for feedback.
  3. The Starfish Reviews “funnel” asks users how they feel about your business, product, or service.
  4. If they like it, they’ll be sent to whatever URL you set in the Funnel settings. This should be a link to the reviews section of wherever you want to generate 5-star reviews.

It could be your Google My Business Reviews, Facebook Recommendations, Yelp listing, TripAdvisor page, podcast on iTunes, an Amazon product, or TrustPilot review page, or any other online review platform. Get 5-star reviews at any of those locations and many more!

Now you can import the reviews received from the different funnel destinations (Facebook, Google, Trustpilot, etc.) and display on your website using our custom Collections Builder (Premium Only)

If people are not so happy with your product, service, media, etc., they’ll be asked to provide feedback directly to you. This helps offset people’s natural tendency to only post reviews when they’re upset, or when they’ve totally misunderstood the purpose of the review. You’ll still learn what you can do to improve, but it won’t be published permanently for the whole world to see.

How to Upgrade Starfish Reviews Free to Premium


Can I use this to encourage reviews on ______ website?

Yes, you can send people to whatever URL you want. So as long as the destination is 1. a website, and 2. publicly linkable, you can send people there. Note: some sites may make it more difficult than others to actually leave a review, and most require an account (eg. Google for Google My Business, Amazon for product reviews, etc).

Could you add _____ feature?

We believe in LEAN Startup method. So if you ask, and so do a number of others of our members or potential members, it’s likely we’ll add it, as long as it fits with our core vision and goals.

This would be a great plugin if it didn’t break everything else. Broke things all over my site. Changed how posts are displayed, broke the display on my price tables, even broke the display on the Posts page in my dashboard.
Ipril 21, 2022
In March we noticed the plugin wasn’t imported any review from Google and Facebook since end of December. We also noticed the layout of our websites was brokken since some update made on the new version of the plugin, it wasn’t the case at the beginning and it worked even if it was the new version. We opened a ticket to try to have a solution who never comes. They asked a dev version, asked a copy of template but nothing worked and they were totaly unable to fix the problem on any site (we had three site using the plugin). After waiting till now we opened a last ticket some days ago to try to have support as we paid for it but they never answered and the plugin didn’t imported any new review since December 2021. Also, the plugin is not build to be translated, the support answered a “not planed” as answer, how is it possible in 2022 to work without translation in mind ? Poor, really poor…

While working with Rich Reviews, now maintained by Starfish Reviews, I had the need to only show the star and review count snippet only if there actual reviews to show, otherwise show nothing. I put in a support request, and in a few days Starfish came through with a new feature on an old plugin to save the day. Way to go Matt at Starfish!

You would think that a plugin called “starfish reviews” would come with a five star based review system. No, it comes with thumbs up or thumbs down options only.
