May Monthly Buzz Newsletter

rater8’s May 2022 Buzz Newsletter

News? Snooze. Introducing...Monthly Memes!*

The rater8 team recently underwent some friendly competition with a reputation management meme contest. When over 100 memes were submitted in 3 days, it became apparent the team had been carrying these ideas in their back pockets for a while now. Here are a couple of our favorites—enjoy!

Skeleton on park bench; text reads, "Waiting' on all those reviews your patients promised they'd leave."
Woody and Buzz from Toy Story; Buzz gestures broadly and says, "Reviews, reviews everywhere...if you use rater8."

*rater8 will continue to provide industry news…next month. We had too much fun making memes this month.

Case Study

With 16 locations across South Dakota, Minnesota, and Iowa, the Orthopedic Institute (OI), Sioux Falls, has offered convenient access and the region’s leading orthopedic care for nearly 50 years. Despite a stellar “real-world” reputation among the communities OI serves, their online reputation did not accurately reflect the high level of patient satisfaction and quality of care they deliver. Just one year after implementing rater8, OI and its physicians have built an online reputation that allows their practice to shine, amassing over 2,500 online reviews and an overall star-rating of 4.8. That represents an increase of more than 2,000% in the number of reviews.

Check out the OI case study to read more about how OI improved its online reputation using rater8, resulting in increased web traffic and new patient volume within a year.
