When customers are choosing between products, the one with the better reviews wins
With today’s technology, it’s easy for consumers to check online reviews before making a purchase. It’s no surprise that products with the better reviews get purchased and brands with the better reviews attract customers. For this reason, it’s crucial for you to motivate your customers to leave online reviews, thereby giving your company a competitive edge.
Often consumers are wary of marketing that claims best results. Online reviews give consumers real results and opinions about the products they’re considering purchasing.
How can online reviews impact a customer’s purchasing decisions?
When comparing purchase options, a customer is going to lean toward the brand that has more and better reviews. Consumers search for online reviews while shopping in store or online to help them make purchasing decisions. Reading independent personal reviews of how a product has benefitted others will motivate unsure buyers to make the final purchase.
How can I improve my brand’s online reputation?
It’s important for brands to establish and promote a positive reputation online to build trust with consumers. Brands are becoming more aware that their customers are interested in real-life results and personal recommendations. This has led to the increase of influencer marketing. Brands collaborate with social media influencers who have strong followings to test new products. These social media stars promote their honest opinions to their large audiences, which can then lead to increased awareness and sales.
It’s important to manage online reviews about your products and brand to protect your company’s reputation and help grow your sales. By gaining positive online reviews, you raise your company’s ratings on review websites and increase your brand awareness to potential customers.
