Brands need an online reputation management system that integrates their other CX data with unsolicited ratings + reviews. But while implementing an online reputation solution is a great first step, it isn’t enough. That’s like buying a treadmill and thinking you’ll get in better shape just by looking at it. Nothing will get accomplished until you engage with the tool.
The problem is many companies don’t have a designated person to manage online reviews, which means the responsibility falls on the shoulders of your location or area managers—who are likely pretty busy with a slew of other responsibilities.
In order to succeed, your team needs a comprehensive solution that is easy to use (and way less work than a treadmill). Let’s take a look at the time-saving capabilities an intuitive ratings + reviews solution will provide:
While it would be great if every review was positive, despite our best efforts, not every customer leaves happy. With most social listening platforms, there’s a lag between reviews and reporting. Best-in-class online reputation management technology provides real-time, rule-based alerts, which means you can be notified immediately about reviews with specific star ratings or comments containing keywords.
In-platform response not only provides you with timely customer feedback, but it also lets you engage with these customers faster. This two-way communication provides you with a more efficient and comprehensive close-the-loop process—resolving issues quickly and maintaining a positive brand reputation. And for brands with a significant number of reviews, the ability to rotate and publish responses using a library of templates with a single click means you can efficiently look like you’ve employed an army of social media managers.
Analytics and data visualizations will help you keep a pulse on where to focus so you can continue making meaningful changes to the customer experience. Some examples include:
And with best-in-class benchmarking, you can get an easily digestible perspective on your place in the competitive market. Many online reputation management solutions provide insight at the brand level—which is helpful, but limiting. In order to really understand where you’re winning and where you’re coming up short, you need to know how each individual location is doing relative to its local competitors. Location-level benchmarks show you:
For real impact, interaction with online ratings + reviews is key. Don’t let customer feedback pile up unanswered—jump on that theoretical treadmill and get to work. But don’t stress—the right online reputation management solution does most of the heavy lifting for you, making it faster and easier to respond to as many customers as possible—and to see where you are stacking up and falling short on the customer experience.
