Benefits of On-site Visual UGC, Reviews, & Rating Uploads

Let’s get a detailed overview of the key reasons that make this feature a necessity for your brand’s online store. 

1. Understand Customer Emotions

Your customers are your best advocates and best critics. Therefore, it is essential to understand the emotions, feedback, and satisfaction levels. This helps brands to improve experiences and strategies. 

With a direct collection of UGC, reviews, and ratings, brands can understand customer emotions and satisfaction levels. It can also be leveraged to analyze brand performance. 

2. Build A User-Generated Content Hub

User-generated content is the most trustworthy, reliable, and authentic form of content about a brand. Almost 95% of consumers trust what existing customers of a brand are saying while making a purchase. 

This feature will help you collect and curate the most valuable, real, and raw user-generated content in different forms directly from the users. You can create a hub of this user-generated content and leverage it in your marketing campaigns and brand channels. 

3. Leverage UGC on Brand’s Website

Your online store or brand website should look and feel trustworthy and credible. Social proof increases the chances of more leads, better user engagement, and maximized conversions leading to increased revenue and greater brand growth.

4. Get Pre-approved Content Rights

Since users on social media share the content, they are the owner of the content they share. Therefore, brands can not repurpose user-generated content without getting content rights.

However, with on-site UGC uploads, you can add UGC rights permissions in the terms and conditions to get implied content rights when the user submits their images, reviews, and ratings. 

5. Leverage It Across Other Channels

Content creation is a lengthy, time consuming, and expensive process. Brands have to invest vast resources to create and publish content across different channels. In contrast, users’ content is created and shared by users directly without any massive investments. 

You can leverage the collected user-generated content and reviews across different channels like website, online store, social ads, events, offline campaigns, social commerce platforms, and other channels.
