This One Number Reveals What Your Customers Think of Your Business
How do you know how your customers feel about your brand?
There is one number that illustrates exactly what your customers think of your business. Your Reputation Score helps you understand customer sentiment and your brand and business strengths. It also enables you to identify opportunities to improve the customer experience.
The Reputation Score Explained
Reputation Score gives you a real-time indication of customer sentiment. It’s a comprehensive assessment, based on actual customer behaviors, that provides a complete, insightful picture of your company.
While some companies measure reputation based on brand perception, social mentions and market factors, our approach is different. We look beyond PR placements and your market value. Instead, we look at visibility, ratings and reviews to give you a far more accurate impression of your business.
There are several components used to determine your Reputation Score:
- Star Ratings: An average star rating closer to 5 shows your company’s commitment to customer service.
- Review Volume: Search engines look at how many reviews you have, either positive or negative, when ranking your business.
- Review Spread: Search engines also look at the scope of your reviews across Google, Facebook, Yelp and industry-specific sites. The larger the spread the better.
- Review Recency: Your company needs recent reviews that demonstrate continuous engagement with customers to rank higher in search results.
- Listings: You need consistent and accurate listings – name, address, phone number and hours – to help customers find and connect with you.
Reputation.com helps businesses focus on these important engagement measures to improve their Reputation Score.
