It is safe to say we are all consumers. No matter if you own a business or not, you still “consume” products and services on a daily basis. Think about your buying habits for a second. If you are thinking of investing in a home theater set, will you just take the first one you see in the store, or will you try and gather as much feedback as possible?
I thought so, too.
When faced with a purchasing decision, you need to feel confident in your choice, therefore, you look for solid proof of the product’s quality. The higher the price/importance of the product, the harder you strive to make sure you opt for the best available option. And it doesn’t matter what that product is — food, books, plane tickets, pet toys, home theater sets, etc. That solid proof is customer reviews.
What We Mean by Product Reviews?
And are they any different than the regular customer reviews?
Well, unless you have been living under a rock, or you just woke up from hibernation, you will have an idea what customer reviews are. As a business owner, however, you may still wonder why having reviews on your marketing platforms is good for you. I mean, why would you want to have biased pieces of content on your website? What if the “reviewer” had a bad day and took it all out on your product’s review? I know, but here’s the thing… Customer reviews are —
The Wayward Sons You Need
So what about product reviews? These reviews are product-centered pieces of content whose main purpose is to provide a personal opinion on the benefits, drawbacks, and performance of a specific product. Aside from making your product seem enticing to potential clients, reviews can boost its image and make it the go-to product. What is more, online reviews affect a lot more than the products you offer, they help shape your company image as well.

What I Love About Product Reviewing
As a product reviewer myself, I find the product “test-drive” to be the most exciting part. You never know what to expect! I recently had to review a mobile app for book summaries. Being a child of the 21st century and a book nerd all in one, you can see how this assignment had me grinning like a Cheshire cat.
I spent a few days exploring the app, its features, how it behaved, whether it glitched, how much it was draining my battery, was it a really user-friendly interface after all, and much, much more. You need to be patient with testing products so you can really get the “full picture.” If you’ve done that, writing about it really is a breeze. I’ve always believed you can’t write about something you don’t know and this holds especially true for product reviews.
The Benefits for Your Business
I couldn’t skip this part. We all know it, reviews are the stamp of approval “normal” people place on a product to verify it’s safe and wise for you to buy it. It doesn’t end there, however. Reviews help your business by:
- Building trust and loyalty — a product that can be trusted is a business that can be relied on.
- Adding credibility — people reading your reviews will respect you for allowing client-generated content on your website. It shows you are confident in the product(s) you are offering.
- Traffic Traffic Traffic — reviews have proven to be among the most efficient ways to generate traffic to online platforms.
- Helping you improve your offering — it might be that the packaging is off, some features are glitching, or you have a problem with your distribution network. All these can be pointed out by no other than your clients.
