Drive traffic, sales and insights with user-generated content

Reviews are important for consumers and businesses alike. And if your website doesn’t feature plenty of reviews for plenty of your products, you risk losing shoppers to a site that does. 45% of shoppers who can’t find enough reviews (or any reviews at all) on a brand or retailer site will go to a search engine, and 25% will turn to Amazon.
