My Dashboard Tip #1 of 5: How to Interpret Your Average Rating


You go to your Dashboard and see that your average 4-week rating is a 4.60. So, what does that mean and how can you use that information to improve?

As Experts, you strive to deliver the best possible experience to customers. Every time a customer gives you a 4 or 5, they are telling you that you've met or exceeded their expectations. When you get a 1 or 2, it is an opportunity to see how you can improve. Your average rating, as shown in My Dashboard, is simply that; the average of all of your rated questions, both positive and negative. For all of the 4 and 5 stars, you are doing something right and it's up to you to continue to be consistent with your service. For all of the 1 and 2 stars, you should use them as an opportunity to test ways to improve.

If you are seeing your average rating decline over time, feel free to reach out to us and we can help analyze your questions and identify opportunities for you to improve. Like you, our goal is to help all Experts deliver the best possible experience to customers.

Asking Customers for Ratings


One of the most common questions we get from Experts about rating is what we are doing on our side to reminder customers to rate. In short, we have several messages on the customer's Q&A page to remind them about rating and we also send out several email reminders.
