    On yelp, yahoo local, merchant circle, etc. Seemingly I can't post them all myself because I guess they check IP addresses? What about proxies? Any paid services do this SAFELY?

    You can go about saying that you will pay a certain person about 2 dollars per review of your company. Probably most people would agree to this.

    I started my client on this and many (60%) of his customers leave a review. He offers a Star Bucks gift card to most of his customers. Like $10 card is fine. More if its worth it

    Not sure 100% but from what I have seen, most companies like Yelp and Google+ etc frown on this and is against their TOS. Also not sure if its legal to pay before or after a review is left. I think of it as a thank you.

    Anyway, educate your client on this and let them know the pros and cons of this. To most, the lifetime of one customer is certainly worth more then a $10 gift card

    What happens if you use proxies and just leave all the reviews yourself?

    Places like Yelp are pretty good at catching cheaters. I tried. Im sure someone can help you get past their filters though
