Social media and reviews are the best features. Once we integrated into Facebook and Instagram we were able to have a great look at everything. So far, I cannot say for the surveys as we are in the very early phases. Listings are perfect for when we are relocating a business. Reports are fantastic when reporting to my upper management.

If you need an excellent mechanism to collect and publish customer reviews, Yotpo is the best that we have found. We love the feature set that is provided, even if you are using the basic membership to get started. Where it is really good is the collection and managing of reviews. The email request setup is simple and easy to use. The publishing and commenting on reviews can be managed easily in the backend. It syncs up nicely to our website providers, and we have used it on a few different platforms without any problems. The pricing on it is also very competitive when you price it out against so of the other big-name players in the space.
Read full review Pros Their customer service is always very helpful and ready to give you the personal attention that you require. They connect many different sources and funnel them straight to you so you can easily capitalize on multiple platforms and information streams. They are constantly innovating and improving their systems with real-time feedback from their customers. Read full review Yotpo alerts us by email when a new review comes in which encourages us to log in and check the Yopto dashboard to see if anything needs tending to. With one click we can publish a Yotpo review to our website, than another click and it pushes the review to Twitter, and Facebook. Even the free version has lots of useful features. Read full review Cons The sentiment feature is just okay. It requires custom adjustments and time to understand where it is working well and where it is not in order to get the most out of it, while other features require very little user input. Social listening needs work. I often receive notifications for unrelated terms because of their similarity in spelling to my organization's name, so I don't use this feature. Birdeye could have more built-in features to create digital content from the reviews. Birdeye could also have additional reputation tools to strengthen GMB listings and to combat negative press. Review listings and rich snippets in search are great, but having a tool that measures and helps to improve overall brand health/search results would be amazing. My CEO isn’t looking at what is going right. He looks at what is going wrong. We may have thousands of positive reviews on Google, but the bad article with false information is still showing up on page one of search results. That makes for an unhappy CEO. Read full review The customer photos are too small. We'd like to be able to display the photos that customers upload as much larger. They're almost thumbnails. Yotpo widgets slow down site speed so we can't use any of them. The only one we can use is the reviews page. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Our organization is very lean and agile and does not have the resources to staff either a Marketing or Customer Service Team member on reviews full time. We know and understand the value of such an individual but are unable to staff a position at this point. This reduces the value of the tool in our eyes.

Birdeye's dashboard is clean and user-friendly. Most of the functionality is easily understood, even for those who aren't necessarily technically inclined. Most issues come from the initial setup of individual locations, because there are a lot of fields to fill out and it can be easy to overlook some of them.

I think the platform back end could be easier and more intuitive, but we are able to get around and accomplish what we need to with minimal training or guidance. Specifically, we had complications with trying to do something as simple as sending ourselves test emails and adjusting image sizes pulling from our product catalog so that the review request email images would be clear.

The customer support is usually very fast in getting someone connected with you to figure out a solution. Sometimes the communication following up on how they did can be a little much, but they are just practicing what they preach and doing what they know best. People are usually very friendly and knowledgable also.

Live chat is always ready to help. Even when they do not have an immediate answer, we hear back from them within a reasonable time frame. Communication from the account manager is great as well. The team has been very supportive in listening to new ideas, needs, and updates based on real-time on-site data.

We only utilized Birdeye as the reputation speaks for itself. I've heard of other products that are not as user friendly or streamlined. Good program that can be figured out with basic common sense, great tracking system of current reviews, auto replies, contact saver are all huge benefits to the Birdeye program

I have only used one other service prior to Yotpo (I don't remember what it was) and Yotpo outperforms them. Yotpo is really intuitive and easy to navigate/install from a Shopify user perspective. When Pixel union releases their customer review service I may try it out since they are my theme provider and it may integrate more seamlessly.
Read full review Return on Investment My clients have experienced very large increases to overall SEO and SEM traffic after reviews began coming in, this has increased CTR and conversions through ads to generate more revenue than ever before. The old-school gated review processes were wonky and required way to much time with hands-on functionality. With BirdEye the software manages almost all the work, so we can spend less time manually managing reviews. Being able to provide local SEO and reputation management as a service option has increased our overall retainers while driving more growth for our clients. It's a win/win for relatively low investment. Read full review We got complaints about not having enough pictures of projects. Yotpo completely negated that complaint with the UGC implementation on our website. If my memory serves me right, 98% of our customers directly interact with some Yotpo widget on our site. That's a lot. Read full review ScreenShots
