Why Build a UGC Scorecard?
When selling their products through a retailer, brands are essentially putting their items on a giant shelf and need to make sure they stand out.
Collecting and displaying user-generated content (UGC), such as ratings & reviews and imagery or video, from other customers is one of the most impactful ways to drive sales.
A scorecard ensures brands are making the most of their UGC strategy by giving them a benchmark to work towards.
- Determine which items to click on from landing pages and search engines (pages with reviews drive 88% of web traffic)
- Compare between options
- Make an informed purchase decision in-store or online
Based on data- supported best practices for UGC
