Get more reviews on Google with the all new Google Boost for VRP!
What is Google Boost?
Current subscribers of our Verified Resident Program review cultivation product can now take advantage of a new feature that increases their ability to generate new Google reviews.
How does it work?
- Current VRP clients can log into the EXCHANGE dashboard and, under the “Communities” tab they will now see a section labeled “Google Boost.” In this section you can easily find and populate the empty field with the Google Place ID for each of your communities. There is also a convenient checkbox, which allows you to turn the feature on and off.
- When populated with your Google Place ID and turned on, residents that complete a VRP survey will receive an email from ApartmentRatings 3 days after submitting their review to ApartmentRatings. In this email, they will be asked to follow simple step-by-step instructions to easily transfer the same review content from their ApartmentRatings review and post it onto their community’s Google business profile.
- Once submitted, the review will immediately appear on the community’s Google review page.
How does this help?
This can help improve your online reputation by adding more review content to the number one (ApartmentRatings) and number two (Google) source for online apartment reviews & ratings. Additionally, having more reviews on both of these websites can improve your SEO, helping your communities to show up closer to the top of a search results page, which means more people are likely to see you communities and consider them when searching for a new apartment home.
Who is eligible for the new VRP product feature?
Any community with an active Verified Resident Program subscription will automatically have this feature made available to them. The only setup required is for customers to log into the EXCHANGE platform, add their Google Place ID for their communities and check the box to activate the feature. The new feature is provided free of charge throughout the remainder of 2020 and all of 2021 as long as they have an active VRP subscription by 12/31/2020. Don’t have an active VRP subscription?
