Since SocialSurvey was launched in 2015, our product innovations have grown from a single automated survey delivery tool to four products with a wealth of integrated value-added features. What these features all have in common is that our customers asked for them – and they have the perfect forum to give us their ideas, requests and feedback every year at SocialSurvey’s annual Create WOW Summit. At the 2018 Summit, customers voted on a number of new capabilities they would like added to the SocialSurvey platform. An easier way to manage multiple review listings was their top priority and we listened.
“Our customers wanted an automated way to manage and publish location data across multiple web locations, including Google and Facebook, directly from the SocialSurvey platform,” says SocialSurvey’s Vice President of Customer Success & Support, Raashida Avery. “Our development team came up with several ideas for a new automated feature and presented them at a Summit session to a group of SocialSurvey customers. That’s where the idea for Listings Manager came to life. The group’s feedback helped our team focus more clearly on product features that reflect the real needs of SocialSurvey users.”
A month after the 2019 Summit, SocialSurvey launched the alpha phase of Listings Manager with the participation of a test group of 35 clients from businesses ranging in size from 10 to 1,000 locations. “We went through five different co-working groups and published their data as use cases to support the transition of the product to the beta level,” says Avery. Listings Manager was demonstrated to members of the Partner Advisory Board at last year’s Summit and now has general availability.
The automated features within Listings Manager enable users to manage their citation or location data across multiple web locations from a single SocialSurvey dashboard. Not only is this more efficient, but consistent listings data helps companies win locally.
“We start with uniform name, location, address data, then we can apply more detail information for the citation like hours, description and even photos” says Avery. “Google looks for consistency and this enables Google to reward our customers with a stronger presence.” Listings Manager conveniently optimizes data in four critical areas: Google My Business Signals, Citation Signals, Review Signals and Company Domain Signals. “With SocialSurvey, you now have one central location to manage and excel in these areas so your customers can find you easily online and engage with your business” continues Avery.
Another top customer priority was the ability to manage reviews on Google, Facebook and other social media locations from a single dashboard. This is now possible with SocialSurvey so customers no longer have to use multiple applications from different vendors. “Now, SocialSurvey customers can publish and reply to those reviews directly from SocialSurvey in one seamless process,” says Avery.
