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.

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 incredible 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.

5. Leverage It Across Other Channels

Content creation is a lengthy, time-consuming, and expensive process. Brands must 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 user-generated content and reviews collected across different channels, such as a website, online store, social ads, events, offline campaigns, social commerce platforms, etc.
