When it comes to User-Generated Content, there is a common saying - ‘People trust people & Customers trust customers,’ and we could not agree more! User-Generated content is the most genuine and powerful form of content marketing that can deliver spectacular results. It did not take much time for the eCommerce industry to recognize its effectiveness.
If you are an eCommerce business and unaware of how User-generated content can completely transform your marketing game, this blog is for you!
Make your way till the end of the blog, and we are sure by the time we conclude, you will be convinced that UGC is without a doubt extremely important for your eCommerce brand.
Think about it - If you are a loyal customer of a brand and prefer using its product, it is unlikely that you would try another product as an alternative.
If 5 people are talking about a new product, you will not pay much heed, but if there is a large audience gushing about a new product, there is a chance that you may be compelled to try out the product. This is the difference that UGC brings to your brand.
Integrating UGC into your social commerce strategy can help you build brand trust, reliability and authenticity that can drive brand sales on social media channels and websites.
Your customers create User-Generated content, and as we have already mentioned above, people trust the reviews of other customers more than the brand’s published content.
Moreover, hundreds of websites sell similar products as your brand and quote similar promises about the effectiveness of their products. This often confuses customers, and they start viewing reviews to see what other customers have experienced with your brand, and positive reviews can help you achieve your desired results.
When you utilize the positive reviews generated by your customers and display them on your social media or website, they will feel elated and see you as a brand that values their feedback. It will further encourage them to become loyal customers.
This way, you shall attract and target your potential customers more effectively and motivate your existing customers to make more purchases.
Whenever we are in a fix to make a purchase, the first thing we do is Google about it to know more about the brands to buy the product from, which happens mostly with everybody.
The catch here is that Google backs User-Generated Content. So if you have a lot many reviews from your customers, the SEO of your website is likely to get more optimized. This will lead to an increase in clicks and probably conversions and revenues.
Your customers may not pay much heed to your same old traditional marketing strategies and probably find it boring and give it a miss, but when they see your existing customer raving about your product on social media and presenting it beautifully, then it will immediately change their mindset and would start seeing your product differently.
User-Generated content helps attract customers to your product and generates confidence within them about your product, leading to a better overall customer experience.
User-Generated Content is the most cost-effective way to promote your product or business since it is the content created by your customers and is not sponsored.
Using UGC, you can save on money that you would otherwise have to spend on other means of advertising or promoting your business.
There are many users out there who habit of spreading negativity and leave nasty and abusive reviews. Being a business, you need to be careful about these fake and negative reviews as they may hamper your business.
Luckily, people are aware of these notorious acts of a few users and are smart enough to distinguish between a fake and a genuine review.
Since User-Generated Content is authentic, genuine, and positive, it can seamlessly overpower the negative, nasty comments.
User-Generated content is all about trust. Just like you trust the recommendation of your friends and purchase a product, your potential customers also get attracted by the recommendations of your existing customers.
They may not know them personally but still have faith in them since they are customers with the same concerns and behavior.
Have you ever tried to find out the reason behind shoppers not getting convinced to purchase a product? Even though they seem like they would certainly buy a product, but they back out at the last minute. Ever tried to analyze why?
This is because they still are unsure whether the product would suit their needs or not. By reading real-time consumer reviews, they would relate more and shop with an open mind.
When you build faith and trust within your customers and feature the content created by them on your website or social media handle, you convert them from your existing customers into your loyal customers. Their loyalty will help you create a community and a bond with them.
As promised at the beginning of this blog, we are sure you must be amazed by the incredible benefits of User-Generated Content. We would like to incorporate this strategy into your eCommerce business as well.
Now that you have all the reasons to use this result-driven marketing technique, what are you waiting for?
