Reviews, Reputation, and Search Engine Optimization
Online Reviews and Reputation Management is actually a key piece to contemporary Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Why? Because search engines scour online business listings such as Google My Business (aka. Google Places) and Yelp to make their algorithmic determination of how relevant your company is to a searching consumer's shopping needs.
An Unexpected Metric Payers Are Asking For
Surrounding the American Physical Therapy Association's Private Practice Section conference in Fall of 2018, we noticed a widespread trend that payers were asking practices for an unexpected customer metric — patient satisfaction.
Satisfaction can be measured through standardized queries such as the Net Promoter Score (NPS), the Customer Effort Score (CES), and the Customer Satisfaction Score (CSAT). Part of UpDoc Marketing's proprietary methodology in review campaigns is in objectively measuring customer satisfaction for our clients to not just win over reviews, but also to guide strategic next step recommendations on how to elevate the customer experience as part of a strategic approach.
Build Immediate Trust
A solid history of five star reviews on Google, Yelp, Facebook, or any other business listing platform forms a strong foundation for your company's brand image.
Become Easily Found
A steady stream of favorable reviews also leads to improved discoverability and has parallel benefits in SEO. Web crawlers constantly adjust their algorithms based on consistent user based reviews as well as congruent citations across the landscape of business listing platforms.
Get More Phone Calls
Trust and discoverability naturally lead to more inquiries, a better cross section of warm leads, and ultimately, more phone calls.
Increase Website Traffic
As a brand elevates their Review and Reputation rankings, search engines naturally yield an uptick in website traffic referrals. This creates a positive cycle of higher volume and higher quality user traffic, creating a parallel benefit to SEO.
