Trustpilot is a consumer review management platform. Connecting businesses to consumers with the sole aim of building trust and transparency between the two sides.
You begin by creating a Trustpilot account and linking your website or e-commerce store to the account. With that done, whenever a consumer makes a purchase, Trustpilot follows up to have that consumer rate you and leave a short description of the experience.
Every subscribing business has access to a dashboard with a clear, statistical overview of how your business is performing in terms of Trust Score which is the platform’s unit of measurement. Thus the higher the Trust Score, the better off your business is.
You have the ability to manage reviews in different ways. For instance, the reviews are sorted by rating, but you can search for a specific review by username, reference number (if you require it) or email. Date, tag, and reply status filters are available to help refine searches. Paying users can also publish reviews and even invite favorite customers to review their businesses.
Other than that, reporting is excellent and reliable. You can schedule daily reports to track your progress. Or, for more details, visit the analytics section to print a 28-day report. Support is also reliable. Clients can contact the customer service desk via phone, email, live support, or tickets.
