SOCi Expands Reputation Reporting Functionalities for Multi-Location Marketers
In the world of multi-location marketing, a solid online reputation is essential. The data speaks for itself. For instance, 82 percent of consumers read online reviews. Similarly, more than half of consumers have admitted to passing up a business due to their local ratings and reviews. Reputation management is more critical than ever before, which is why SOCi is excited to announce our expanded reputation reporting capabilities.
What is Reputation Reporting, and Why Is It Important?
In short, reputation reporting is a tool that will allow your multi-location business to track its online reputation and gain insight into what customers are saying about your business through ratings and reviews. While SOCi provided some insight into your business’s reputation in the past, our new offerings will allow you to compare reputation data to previous periods of time. For instance, many companies want to track growth month over month regarding your reputation metrics. Our expanded capabilities will provide your business with the opportunity to do so.
Similarly, your multi-location business can select two different time periods that don’t have to be the same length of time to compare the two. For example, if your multi-location business wants to compare reputation metrics from January 2021 with January 2022, you will now have the ability to do that. These expanded offerings will allow your multi-location business to understand your online reputation better, giving you a leg up on the competition.
