Top Rated Local® allows customers to add a business to the platform so they leave a review. If a customer adds your business, it's still up to you, the business owner to claim it so you can manage your reputation.
To manage reviews using the Marketing 360® Reputation App, your Business Location must be included in Top Rated Local® and claimed by you, the business owner. To effectively manage the reputation of multiple business locations, you should create a Business Location for each location separately.
