BBB Tools & Benefits

There are great benefits to being BBB Accredited. Here are some of the tools you have access to and can start using today! 


1. Personalized Accredited Business Dashboard

Within your "BBB Monthly Insights & Stats" email that you receive each month, you'll find a link to your personalized Accredited Business Dashboard. Your Dashboard gives you access to important performance metrics like new consumer reviews, clicks to your website, BBB profile views, your BBB Profile Google Rank, and the number of quotes you received from visitors to in the previous month. 

Action Item:

A few things you can do to improve your monthly stats are: 1) Make sure all your information on your BBB Profile is accurate and up-to-date, 2) Encourage your customers to leave reviews, and 3) Add The Dynamic Seal to your website and social media networks (see more info on #4).


2. Monthly Industry News & Insights

Each month, BBB will send you an email with articles that provide best practices and expert advice for your industry. These are written and handpicked to specifically help BBB Accredited Businesses build and maintain trustworthy relationships with their customers. 


Action Item:

Keep your eyes open for “Your BBB Monthly Insights & Stats” email each month. Don't forget it will include a link to your Business Intelligence Report.


3. Networking & Community Events

Several times a year, BBB hosts or sponsors events for either Accredited Businesses or people in the community. These are great opportunities to not only connect with other Accredited Businesses but also meet potential customers in your community. Whenever there is an event, we will let you know via email. 

Action Item:

If you want to know when our next event is or have ideas to contribute, let us know!


4. The Dynamic Seal Program

The Dynamic Seal is a bit different from the printed version of the BBB Accreditation Seal you download and attach to your business location, vehicles, and printed marketing tools. It is a digital asset you can add to your website or social media pages that links consumers to your BBB Business Profile once they click on it. This helps them instantly verify the credibility of your Accreditation and see your consumer reviews and BBB rating.

Action Item:

Ask your BBB rep how you can start using The Dynamic Seal today. If you don’t know how to put it on your site, they can help!


5. Request A Quote

This service offered exclusively to Accredited Businesses helps drive new leads to Accredited Businesses and facilitates easier and faster communication between businesses and prospects.


Action Item:

You don't need to do anything to turn this feature on.  Just be ready to respond with a quote to any consumer request that comes to your phone or email. Your prospects expect quick response times.


6. Personalized Support

As an Accredited business, you are a valued part of our BBB family. It’s important to us that you feel supported. That’s why each Accredited Businesses has their own rep to help them get the most out of their Accreditation by using all the available BBB tools and benefits. 

Action Item:

To take advantage of all that Accreditation offers, start using these tools today. If you have questions on how to get started, contact your rep.


7. Leadership Opportunities

Being Accredited puts you in an elite group of businesses that meet strict standards. You attract like-minded people, businesses, and industry leaders who are best-in-their-class and share the same values and ethical business practices.
