Metrics to Monitor

There are a number of generation specific metrics available in the Review Generation tab, here are a few you should monitor.

Success Rate - The success rate refers to the percent of invites sent which resulted in a review. Obviously, the higher the better here, you want as many customers leaving reviews as possible. 2% is a standard conversion rate for invitations but this may vary greatly depending on how high-touch the business is.

Average First Party Rating - The average first party rating is also important to monitor, as it may be interesting to compare how the average rating of your first party reviews differs from those reviews left on other sites.

Conversion Rate - The conversion rates at different stages of the email and text invitations is critical to monitor if you want to optimize your success rate. Understanding where in the journey your customers drop off before leaving invitations could help to let you know when to ask, how to ask, what to include in body copy, what to use as a subject line, and more.
