SearchLab Client Survey Results and Improved Reporting

In May and June of 2019, SearchLab conducted a survey of our clients to find out how we could improve our monthly reporting.

We are grateful for the responses and excited about some changes that will be coming to future reports.

We Are Addressing Two Specific Areas

  1. The previous reports included many graphs and charts, which were hard for many of our clients to understand. There was not enough of a description of what we were measuring and how it benefits the client.For instance, one survey respondent said, “I really think a brief key that would identify what your acronyms mean [would be beneficial]. A clear statement at the start of each segment area explaining why it is important and exactly what it is measuring would be a huge help.”
  2. Clients expressed a desire for greater transparency in our reporting, including reports containing wording that explains specifically what was done in the prior month, how the campaign has improved and what challenges we are facing.
