BEND, OR–G5, the leader in real estate marketing optimization, announces new analytics capabilities in G5 Rep & Social allowing senior living operators to take control of their online reputation by intelligently monitoring, managing and responding to online reviews across their portfolio of communities.
Clients using G5 Rep & Social have seen a 210% increase in Google searches and an 8% increase in review response rates, positively impacting their visibility and brand. In addition, according to a recent BrightLocal survey, 73% of consumers increase their trust in local businesses that have positive reviews, making G5’s Rep & Social a critical component of digital marketing strategy.
“Positive online reviews are important today to both protect online reputation and drive improved organic search results,” said Jamison Gosselin, vice president of senior living strategy, G5. “These new enhancements to G5 Rep & Social offer information and insights that enable senior living operators to be self-sufficient and proactive when managing their online reputation.”
Benefits of using G5 Rep & Social include:
- Increased visibility of all social and review channels – In a single dashboard, users can monitor online conversations across all channels.
- Improved brand reputation – Aggregate and respond to reviews efficiently and improve brand reputation through Google My Business, Facebook and other sources.
- Enhanced insights through sentiment reporting – AI-powered analysis of all reviews and trending topics as well as the sentiment behind them (positive, neutral or negative), so operators can drive operational impact.
- Competitive analysis – Monitor star ratings and benchmark against competition.
- Increased operational efficiency – Assign, collaborate, prioritize, and align workflows and tasks to teams within a single dashboard.
