Industry Notes

The industry saw a 77% increase over last year’s first collection of data. iVET360 clients average at 108 reviews per listing.

The What:

Wouldn’t you rather know what people are saying about you than guess and hope that the reviews are positive? Or maybe you don’t even know that people are talking at all—and how could you possibly manage to moderate the conversation or interact with these reviewers? This situation could very well be the case for your hospital. And the worst part, is that the people talking are the clients that live right in your own community, the ones who know you best, who may even call you a friend—they’re your neighbors!

This is why it’s so important to claim your Nextdoor listing—whether they’re singing praises, or spouting unfair, negative reviews, it can only benefit your practice to be aware and ready to respond. Unfortunately, the majority of hospitals remain unaware and defenseless to what people are saying about them on this the fastest growing local listing service out there. Luckily, it’s really easy to join the Nextdoor party.

The Why:

With recommendations nearly doubling in the last year and already sitting at almost triple the amount of Yelp reviews, it’s easy to see why your hospital needs to be active on, yesterday.

The How:

How to claim your Nextdoor listing: To claim your listing, you must (of course) first be affiliated with your hospital, then you need to create an account, search for your practice and click “Claim”—make sure to claim it as a business.

Then enter your name, email and a chosen password. Once you claim your page, you will have to go through a basic phone verification protocol to confirm you are who you say you are. When you are finished claiming your hospital, you can see what people are saying about you, respond to comments and update your profile information.
