As an instructor/teacher/trainer it is always gratifying to know that you have helped your students/clients. The biggest compliment we can receive is a referral or a testimonial describing their experience(s).
I have had multiple clients ask me how to use the rating/review function on StrongFirst. Originally I would happily tell them to go to the website, set up a user name & rate away! Unfortunately several of those happy students/clients ratings never came to fruition. A few told me that it wasn't as user friendly as they liked, and they got disenchanted with the process and gave up A few said it too more that 3 clicks - and their attention was pulled somewhere else. Others never shared their experiences. Whatever the reason, I missed their review; not because they didn't want to say nice things - but because of the process to rate/review. So to help prevent that from happening for other instructor(s) and myself, here is my tutorial. As far as I can interpret the site/review process - they want to validate that a real client/student (and not just your mother bragging about you) is reviewing an instructor. To do this the review is set up as a function of the user chat.
First, go to: www.strongfirst.com
Towards the top of the page click "DISCUSS"
Create an account. User name needs to be unique - so you may have to slightly alter from your number 1 choice, if it is already taken. Once you complete, click register. An email will be sent to verify your virtual identity.
Go back to the site, click the "DISCUSS" tab and this time Login as a user
You can tell that you have properly logged in, when in the top right hand corner of the site greets you with a "Howdy"
Back to our review process. At the top of the site, click the "INSTRUCTORS" tab
Search for your instructor. If for some reason you call your instructor by a nickname and not their government name... you can resort to the zip code search function. In the picture I am using the search by name, typing the name and then pressing enter on my computer.
Write your review, give your stars, and click "Post your review"!
Thank you for taking the time to review/share your experience(s). Reading your review(s) often help others get started/try an instructor.
The biggest compliment we can receive is a referral (or) testimonial/review.
