Customer reviews are an essential aspect of an eCommerce business. And as an eCommerce business owner, it should be an integral part of your online marketing strategy. Reviews create credibility for your products, and increased credibility means increased sales.

For sure! They're one of the most valuable things you can have on your ecommerce website. Building trust with your existing and future customers is essential and reviews is one of the best ways to do this!

Absolutely, social proof sells! The reviews are the first place I go when deciding to buy a product or not.

@dawn_veltri1 Social proof indeed sells; in fact, we humans are greatly influenced by our social circle.

Working as a Marketer-Consultant. Yes, indeed the review is mandatory for your products in the online setups the more you got the reviews on the product the level of confidence of customers will increase the more chance you have for your sale. Just check my e-commerce website. https://dmeofamericainc.com/

Yes it is. In the digital world where engagement and conversion rates are low, I've noticed that customer reviews for products in websites are a great source of free promotion. Customer reviews helps the seller achieve trust and reliability for their brand. The mishmash of authenticity, trust and dependability will lead to showcasing how the existing customers are talking about your brand and their authentic experiences. Given how powerful customer reviews are on e-commerce websites, earlier this year some sellers reportedly offered refunds worth more than the original product if a customer deleted or revised a bad review. https://www.cnet.com/tech/servic...

I think so because even when we order anything from Amazon(a trusted e-commerce website) too, we mostly go to the review section for its real pics or reviews. What is actually imp is to build trust among visitors about your product and service and showing the experiences of your customers to them will help a lot.

@mahak Sometimes sellers offer incentives to write reviews for them.

Yes, customer reviews are the most important part of the store. Customers do not buy directly your products they check the reviews of other buyers and after getting sure they purchase the stuff.

I would say it depends. There are review platforms that nobody actually reads and they exist as a kind of commercial way to build a "positive" face of the product without any real-life backing. From experience being in two SaaS startups I would say that the most powerful thing to bring new users is the word of mouth. Thus I would suggest focusing on building a reputation rather than chasing positive reviews (and certainly not buying reviews, that's a red flag)

Honestly, I wouldn't buy a product without reviews, unless I'm feeling risky that particular day. I'm a big spender on ebay/amazon/aliexpress/joom and I won't buy unless there are not only reviews but also photos and super detailed descriptions.

@daniela_braniste You are not the only person; many studies have confirmed that 90% of customers read reviews before purchasing any product.

If the reviews are real, then yes. I've seen tons of ecom sites with fake reviews and it's just off putting.

@styletrendsnews But, it is difficult to differentiate between original and fake reviews.
