Guidelines for Business Profiles
Ensuring Accurate Information

Last updated on November 23, 2018

From the inception of GoodBed, our goal has been to create the best possible information resource for consumers who are shopping for mattresses and related products. This means covering this category accurately and comprehensively, in terms of both its products and the retailers that sell them.  

How We Get Information

In order to keep our information as complete and current as possible, we gather information from multiple sources:

  1. GoodBed research – Our research team constantly scours all sources of public information related to the mattress and sleep categories, including manufacturer and retailer websites, press releases, trade magazines, etc. We also attend major trade shows and industry events to stay on top of new developments related to companies, products, stores, and the like. 
  2. Company representatives – Businesses can add or update basic information about their company, products, or stores by simply claiming their free business profile. Manufacturers can provide information about their company and the products they make, as well as stores that carry them. Likewise, retailers can provide information about their company and store locations, as well as the products they carry. GoodBed also offers enhanced profile services to help companies keep their profiles up to date with the latest images, product details, and the like.
  3. Readers – Readers also submit information to us, most commonly to tell us about new products or stores that we are missing, or to let us know when the information we have is outdated or incorrect.

How Company Representatives Can Add/Update Information

The first step for a company to begin engaging with GoodBed is to have one or more representatives claim its business profile. In addition to other benefits, this provides a company with access to our backend system, through which information about that company's products and/or stores can be added or updated.

Claiming a business profile is completely free and is available to all authorized company representatives. Companies can authorize as many representatives as they'd like. Once a claim request is initiated, a verification process will occur to ensure that the person claiming this profile is truly an authorized company representative. In most cases, this verification process is completed automatically by simply receiving a 4-digit code at the phone number of record for this business. In cases where phone verification is not possible, a request for help can be submitted and the verification will be completed manually by a GoodBed team member.

Authorized representatives can receive email updates when new reviews are posted about their products or stores, and any responses they post to such reviews will be shown as an "official response" from the company. Email notification preferences can be set by each user depending on what role they intend to play (e.g., a representative whose role is simply to update product or store info may elect not to receive review notifications).

What Information Can Be Added/Updated

GoodBed provides extensive detail about products and stores in order to make the shopping process as easy as possible for our readers. To ensure that information is accurate and up-to-date, business representatives have the ability to add or update any factual information about their products or stores. There is no limit to the information that companies can provide in this manner, as long as the information they provide is accurate. If inaccurate information is deliberately posted by a company representative, access to that business profile will be revoked.

GoodBed also provides enhanced profile services through which a company may feature marketing content in designated areas of their profile pages, including images, videos, product/store descriptions, and the like.
