Snapshot Report: Instagram assessment

The Snapshot Report allows your Salespeople to see how their prospects are doing on Instagram! Instagram for business isn’t just a “nice-to-have.” Instagram helps businesses generate brand awareness, attract new customers, boost customer satisfaction, and much more. With an Instagram needs assessment built right into the Snapshot Report, your salespeople can uncover previously undiscovered needs and then prescribe social solutions like Social Marketing or Concierge. How does it work? When your salespeople create a Snapshot Report, the platform automatically assesses the prospect’s profile on Instagram. Under the Social section of the report, your salespeople will then see how the prospect compares to the industry in terms of the number of followers and posts. If the platform couldn’t find a profile, that means either the prospect doesn’t have one or the one they have needs improvement. Either way, they’ll need your help to get found! The prospect’s Instagram performance is factored into their Social grade, much like Facebook and X.

Website Performance Metrics on Snapshot Reports

The speed that your website loads are absolutely crucial. There are a variety of factors that affect this performance. Using PageSpeed Insights and Google's Core Web Vitals, we assess whether your website meets Google’s expectations for page speed. We then display three recommendations: Should Fix: Rules that failed PageSpeed Insights’ tests. You should fix these immediately. Consider Fixing: Rules that passed PageSpeed Insights’ tests, but could use improvement. You might consider fixing these issues, but they’re not necessarily critical. Passed Rules: Rules that passed PageSpeed Insights’ tests. What metrics does Snapshot Report assess? The Snapshot Report assesses 10-speed metrics in total: Eliminate render-blocking JavaScript and CSS in above-the-fold content: When a page includes render-blocking external stylesheets, which delays the time to first render. Leverage browser caching: When the response from your server does not include caching headers or if the resources are specified to be cached for only a short time. Optimize images: When the images on the page can be optimized to reduce their file size without significantly impacting their visual quality. Minify HTML: When the size of one of your resources could be reduced through minification. Enable compression: When compressible resources were served without gzip compression. Minify CSS: When the size of CSS could be reduced through minification. Minify JavaScript: When the size of JavaScript could be reduced through minification. Reduce server response time: When your server response time is above 200 ms. Avoid landing page redirects: When you have more than one redirect from the given URL to the final landing page. Prioritize visible content: When additional network round trips are required to render the above-the-fold content of the page. How do I access the full report? Within the website section, just below the Core Web Vital metrics, you'll find separate reports for both mobile and desktop. These reports are a breakdown of all the rules that either pass or require fixing.  To expand the report, click the arrow located on the far right of each bar. This will allow you to see each rule that the website passes or fails. You can also dive deeper into each rule by clicking the + located next to each rule.  This allows you to provide your clients with a full report showing exactly what they can improve with their website.  NOTE: If you've customized Snapshot Report to show only desktop or mobile metrics, you'll only be able to access that specific report. Does this section include any additional metrics? The report also assesses seven design metrics: Address on homepage Phone # on the homepage Homepage Size Video on homepage Facebook on homepage X on homepage Instagram on homepage To learn more about PageSpeed Insights, check out Google’s FAQ.

Snapshot Report: Ecommerce Section FAQs

The ecommerce section can be effective in showing your clients how they measure up with online sales. It can also lead to many questions. Below are some answers to common questions about this section. Why is it showing an F when my prospect has ecommerce enabled on their website? While we do cover the main solution providers in each market, due to this being a growing and dynamic industry there may be smaller or custom platforms that our report does not recognize. This will cause it to show that nothing can be found on the prospects' website. If you do happen to notice a specific platform missing, don't hesitate to reach out to us so we can add it to our list.  It also may be showing 'none found' because the page that solution is found on is hidden behind a login. While we do our best to crawl as much of a website as possible to search for potential solutions, there can be instances where there are pages we can't reach.  What does 'Lead Engagement' refer to? Lead engagement scans the clients' site for software that allows them to engage with current or recent website visitors. This includes solutions such as live chat or advertising campaigns. e.g. Showing a recent website visitor a digital ad that showcases items they previously viewed in the clients' online store.  What types of software does 'Lead Engagement' search for?

Snapshot Report: Advertising section

The Advertising section of the Snapshot report can be a powerful tool to help sell your clients SEO services but it can also lead to many questions from your prospects. Below are some answers to common questions about this section. What keywords does the Advertising section use?The Advertising section of the Snapshot Report currently identifies the top 5 keywords for your prospect's business based on content gathered from their website and business information. Why don't these keywords match the ones my prospect is currently running?If these keywords don't match your prospects, it could mean that their current keywords are not ones that are considered in the top 5 for their business based on their location, business information, and the content of their website. How does the Advertising section analyze these keywords? The Advertising section analyzes the search results for the first 10 results per page, which means we analyze the top 8 ad results. We then compare with the top keywords of your prospect to determine the data that's displayed in this section. Why aren't my prospect's keywords in the top 8 results?Your prospect's keywords may not be in these top 8 ad results for a number of reasons. If your prospect is using unique keywords, these likely won't fall under those top ad results. Keywords that are considered unique and may not be in those ad results could be your prospect's company name, the names of their unique products, common misspellings of their brand or product, or unique long tail keywords.  What should I tell my prospect if they're running ad campaigns but the Advertising section isn't showing any data? This is likely due to the fact that they're still not showing up within the top 8 ad results. This could be happening if your prospect is using unique keywords or their keywords just don't fall within these top 5 keywords our system identified. If this is the case, this could be a great opportunity to let them know they may want to consider changing their keywords on active campaigns or start a new campaign for those top 5 keywords that the report identified.  What if their ad campaign is showing engagement but the Advertising section is showing an F? The Advertising section only gathers keyword analytics data at the national level which is most likely the cause of this. If Snapshot Report is showing an F but your prospect is seeing engagement from their ad campaign, they're probably ranking at the local level. Because our system is limited to the top 100 results for around 500 million global keywords, we are unable to display keyword data from the local level.

Multi-Location Business App Overview

The Multi-Location Business App is available to Vendasta Partners on certain subscription tiers.  Insights on all your businesses, in one place. Multi-Location Business App is a roll-up of Reputation, Listing, Google Business Profile, Social, and Advertising analytics to allow Brand Managers to monitor and improve their franchise’s online SEO. Multi-Location supports the ability to oversee thousands of franchise locations, giving your team the ability to quickly organize important digital marketing metrics so you can easily see how all your locations are doing compared to each individual location.   See the big picture with insights: Custom date picker, to compare current performance to the previous period. Visualize data in trendlines, sortable tables, and interactive maps. Filter by geographic region. Find the outliers: Each business is given a comparative grading, against other businesses in the brand. Colors indicate the best and worst performers, allowing you to identify outliers. Use table sorting and filters to find successes and issues. Quickly access common workflows: Respond to and manage reviews for all locations. Manage and correct listings for all locations. Drill down into single locations to access products, view account details, and examine the single-location executive report. Create and publish Facebook posts for multiple locations in one go. Currently supported metrics: Reviews (requires ‘Reputation Management’ for each location) Listings (requires ‘Reputation Management’ or ‘Listing Sync Pro’ for each location) Google Business Profile (requires free authentication for each location) Social Posting (requires 'Social Marketing' for each location) Advertising (required 'Advertising Intelligence' for each location) Note: For accounts that don’t have Reputation Management or Listing Sync Pro enabled, Reputation and Listing Data can also temporarily be pulled in for 7 days by running a Snapshot Report for each location. How to setup Multi-Location Business App To begin, you first need to create a Multi-location Group - there are 2 ways to do this.       A) In the Partner Center > Navigate to the Businesses tab > Multi-location Groups; click on the Create Group button Enter the Group Name, Market(if applicable), and Location > Click on Create Group Click on Add accounts > Click on the + sign next to each of the accounts you intend to add to the new Group (there's an option to also create Sub-groups) Note: If you want to create sub-groups, you will need to create at least one sub-group before adding accounts to the Multi-Location Group. If no sub-group has been created, then the option for creating sub-groups is not available after adding accounts.      B) Start by creating a list of all the businesses you’d like included in this Group: In Partner Center > Businesses > Accounts, use the search or the filters to narrow the results down to the businesses you want to add to the list. Then select the button labeled Add x to List at the top right, and create a new list. You can also add businesses one at a time, by selecting ⋮ next to the Account and then, “Add to List”. Next, when your list is ready, create a Group from the list: In Partner Center > Businesses > Lists, select the ⋮ on the list you’ve created, and then choose “Create Multi-location Group” Decide on a name (This name will appear in Business App to all users) and choose to organize by geographic region, unless you’ve set up specific tags for each location and would like to have sub-groupings based on tags. Give users access to view Groups in Multi-location Business App In Partner Center > Businesses > Users, find (or create) the user you’d like to grant access to. Select the ⋮ on that user, and choose “Edit Permissions” At the top of the Permissions page, select the second tab called “Groups” Select the “Add Group” button on the right.

Once logged into Business App, in the top left, choose “Switch Locations” to navigate from the single-location Business App to Multi-location Business App. Select the Group. You’ve made it!

This workflow showcases how to add many accounts at once into a list. To learn more about adding individual accounts or importing them via a csv file, go here.  Go to Partner Center > Businesses > Accounts Click Find accounts. Search for businesses by type or location. (For example, you could search for “Dentists near me”). Click the checkboxes next to any of the businesses that you want to prospect. Click Continue. Click Create accounts. Wait a few moments for the accounts to be added as part of a list. The system will grab information about these businesses right from their Google profile and add that information right into the platform for you.

Back to top. Create Snapshot Reports Snapshot Report is a needs assessment tool that will let you know about the gaps in the business’s online presence. Because your prospects were added as a part of a list, you can create Snapshot Reports as part of a quick bulk action.

Snapshot Reports can be refreshed after the 7 days–additional charges apply. To create a Snapshot Report for one account, go to Partner Center > Businesses > Accounts click on the + report icon next to the account name. Tip: While waiting for information to populate, it’s a great time to make some quick edits to the Snapshot Report. If you’ve added a number of prospects that are part of the same business category, you can flag them as competitors. Check out our Snapshot Guide for more. Back to top.

How often are Core Web Vitals updated by Google?

Core Web Vitals are a set of real-world, user-centered metrics that can help to quantify key factors of a user's experience. They focus on three areas: speed, responsiveness, and visual stability. Google combines these factors in determining search ranking as they help provide a holistic picture of page experience.   The Core Web Vitals data is collected and updated every 28 days. This means that the scores reported on the Snapshot report are what Google measured in the previous 28 days. So if recent changes have been made to improve these scores, they will not be reflected immediately.
