What are Location Insights?

Location Insights is Talkwalker’s latest innovation to monitor your ‘Google My Business’ review. Designed to create better experiences across locations easily. It gathers your reviews in one place and allows you to view them at a global, regional, or even store level. This provides valuable insights that you can use to quickly enhance all your customer experiences.

You can also include competitor reviews, to benchmark your performance, and uncover new opportunities. Find the mistakes they’re making that you can resolve, or learn what they’re doing right that you can improve on.

If you want to know what your customers think at every level, you’ve come to the right place.

What can Location Insights do?

Understand your overall performance

By gathering your local reviews in one place, you can quickly identify review topics and trends. Is there an issue only impacting a few stores, or is it a global problem that needs resolving?

You can also track the number of reviews and average ratings over time. This will detect anomalies or sudden negative spikes. Did a local event, campaign, or supply issue cause a sudden increase in negative reviews?

We’ve also included AI Summaries for the best and worst reviews. These help summarize the major points raised in all your reviews. For less time analyzing and more time for taking action.

Identify pitfalls & opportunities

You can then dive deeper into your data, to uncover insights at a country, regional, or street level. By comparing these demographics, you can see which areas are underperforming, and which over exceed expectations.

Go as granular as you want, by comparing reviews over time. Do your results drop over weekends or busy periods? 

Discover conversation drivers

Location Insights also brings qualitative data to your dashboard, to uncover why results are falling or rising. Key drivers reveal the main topics behind positive or negative reviews. To give you a quick understanding of the core conversation.

You can customize this with 1-Click Classifiers™. If there are specific review categories you want to focus on, you can set up custom filters in minutes. These can include areas like product quality, stock levels, customer service, pricing, or other critical business areas.
