Step 5: Log In to Update Your Page

Once your claim is accepted, you'll get an email with a link to edit your profile! Then you can use the Scout platform to update your city/state/edo page with the latest information.

Step 6: Encourage Reviews

Invite local businesses to leave reviews about their experiences in your city. These real-world insights add credibility to your profile and can be used to power attraction and retention efforts.

By claiming your profile and gathering authentic reviews from primary employers,  you're taking charge of how your city attracts businesses and propels its growth. Additionally, reviews can be used to get a pulse on your city and identify retention/expansion opportunities. 

Each year we'll aggregate reviews in States/Regions to produce reports such as Top Cities in Texas for Business, According to Employers. These reports are based solely on feedback from local business leaders.
