What is review generation?

Review generation helps you turn happy customers into your best marketers, so you can expand your reach, attract new shoppers, and increase trust in your brand.

Customers trust other people, not brands. When people are shopping for a new product or service online, they look to past customers’ opinions for advice. By collecting and showcasing online customer reviews, you give shoppers valuable insight from past buyers, which can often be the driving factor in motivating them to make a purchase.

Review generation is all about finding opportunities to capture customers’ great experiences with your brand.  There are many ways to generate reviews, from sending an email after purchase to facilitating it on site using review generation software.

Why you should generate reviews

Generating reviews means better results on site and off. Reviews are a powerful tool for increasing trust and sales throughout the buyer journey. Collecting more reviews means you have more opportunities to place user-generated content across your site and in your marketing campaigns.

Increase on-site conversion

Product and merchant reviews build trust with prospective customers and help motivate them to continue right through to checkout. Seeing other shoppers’ satisfaction with your products gives visitors confidence that your products are high-quality, and helps translate this buyer confidence into increased on-site conversions.

Boost traffic from search & social

When used off site, reviews attract quality traffic that converts. Google crawls and indexes your reviews so they show up in SERPs, Seller Ratings & Product Listing Ads. This increases organic traffic and the effectiveness of your paid ads. Review generation is like SEO gold for online stores — the more reviews you have, the more content Google has to crawl.

Improve ad ROI

Ads that feature user-generated content have a 3x higher CTR on average than regular ads. Online shoppers who use search engines and social networks tend to ignore promotional messaging on their feeds and search pages; they don’t want to hear from brands, they want to hear from real people. By using review generation software to feature customer content on your ads, you can leverage community trust to bring more social referrals to your site.

Gain valuable insights

Reviews are key in understanding what your customers think of your service or products, and they help you make improvements to your business where it matters to your customers the most. Customers can give valuable insight into areas that you may not know to focus on, and can help you improve your online experience so that they keep coming back.

How can you generate reviews and improve response rates?

Data shows that there’s a serious science to asking for reviews – down to how to create the perfect subject line based on your industry, and what time of day is best to ask. For example, review generation rates jump by almost 20% between 1-3pm — probably because people are just getting back to their desks and emails after lunch and aren’t ready to jump into their work yet.

Hear from one of our UGC experts about the power of review generation across each eCommerce industry, and get all the data you need to craft the best subject lines for your review request emails.

User-generated content is an effective, engaging, and efficient way to showcase your brand, and bring more shoppers to your site. When you generate reviews and place them at key moments across your buyers’ journey, you are leveraging your best brand advocates to do your marketing for you. And the best part? It works!
