If you have claimed your Top Rated Local® profile, then you are ready to start managing your business profile and collecting reviews. You can edit your business details, read and respond to reviews, as well as ask your customers to leave reviews on your profile - all within the Reputation dashboard.
To find the Reputation dashboard, log in to app.marketing360.com, then select Reputation from the Global App menu.
When you first navigate to the Reputation dashboard, you will land on the Overview page. The Overview page gives you quick insight into reviews that have been left for your business or organization.
You will see your Business Name listed in the top-right corner of the page. Click on it to see a drop-down list of all of the businesses controlled under your account.
The Totals panel displays the total amount of reviews left for the business or organization and the average rating. Both of these can be filtered by date and review platform so you can dial into just the stats you want to see.
The Rating Breakdown panel displays your Top Rated Local® Rating Score. At the top of the panel, you'll see the lifetime average rating, the total amount of reviews, and the number of verified sites where reviews were collected.
Below that, you'll see your score broken down by the name that Top Rated Local® reviewers use to leave reviews.
Your Rating Score is calculated by variety of factors. To maintain a high Rating Score, practice the tips below:
- Get reviews on a variety of different third-party review sites.
- Improve the average rating score per review.
- Increase the number of reviews per source.
- Keep review data fresh and recent with new reviews.
- Gather reviews directly on your Top Rated Local® listing!
The Review Sites panel displays all platforms on which reviews have been left for the business or organization. Each platform lists the number of reviews and the average rating to give you insight into which platforms are performing best!
The Reviews page shows all of the reviews left on your Top Rated Local® profile.
Use the Filters option near the top of the Overview to filter reviews by date, rating, or flag. You can also sort the reviews by score or date. Once you're viewing just the reviews you want, its time to take action!
