User-generated content stands as a valuable asset for both businesses and consumers. It’s no secret that social proof, such as visual reviews, ratings, customer content, etc. are game-changing elements for brands. 

Now, even though its significance cannot be overstated, its collection remains a challenge for businesses, leading to a common question – How can brands collect UGC, and how can they benefit from it?

Tagshop makes it easy for users with its on-site visual uploader – SnapUp. 

Here’s a complete guide about the feature by Tagshop. 

What Is SnapUp and Who Can Use It? 

SnapUp is a feature by Tagshop that gives brand users the autonomy to upload reviews, ratings, and visual content like photos and videos. It allows the audience to directly upload this content through your preferred touchpoint, such as – scannable QR Codes or buttons placed in emails, eCommerce homepage or product pages, and in-store displays.

That’s not all. You can also customize this feature to improve its efficacy by adding a CTA or other actionable buttons. 

How to collect User-generated content

This feature is particularly useful for businesses looking to drive and acquire more user-generated content and authentic social proof from their customers and leveraging it in various ways to build a trusted brand, backed by feedback from real customers. 

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 their 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 Your eCommerce 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. 

You can showcase the visual UGC on your product page galleries, add reviews to the home or category pages, and highlight positive ratings – all at once to maximize the click-through rate, upsell products, increase dwell time, inspire consumers, reduce cart abandonment, and boost your brand sales.

4. Get Pre-approved Content Rights

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

However, with SnapUp, 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.
