How to write helpful reviews? There are a couple important elements of helpful reviews everybody should include to achieve that. Rate a product or service and summarize your experience. Highlight specific details and facts that others need to know. Why you recommend someone should or should not buy a product. Highlight details that stood out, include unique or unexpected or why you liked or disliked that product. Add pros and cons which provide a balanced view.
People prefer well-written reviews with correct spelling. Consider your words, how they will come across before you submit your review. Add photos that will help to make buying decision and understand your experience. Customers are looking for detailed information about your experience, write a review which would genuinely help someone else make up their mind. If you dislike something your comments in negative reviews can be constructive and helpful both to customers and to merchants.
Two factors are taken into account when determining the helpfulness of a review:
- Review extremity - review is positive, negative, or neutral
- Review depth - the extensiveness of the reviewer comments
Reviews can both drive conversion and provide valuable insights for customers and merchants. Reviews attract consumer visits, increase the time spent on the site and create a sense of community among shoppers.
Companies have invested significant budget and resources to make their websites content-rich destinations that effectively tell stories about their brands and products.In recent years, social media, blogs and product reviews sites provide lots of information. Product reviews become more and more important not only to the companies developing the products, but also to their rivals and potential customers. Analyzing product reviews is the task of tapping this goldmine of information.
Company can classify customers opinions and feedback instead of taking the complete sentence. Customer reviews can be analyzed and trended over time. This allows the business owner to measure the extent to which business changes have impacted customer satisfaction. Evaluating each feedback will be helpful in understanding the needs of individual customers. However, it will be even more helpful if you review the comments in batches and uncover patterns in the responses by categorizing them. Sample categories could include factors such as quality, accuracy, value for money, availability, gender, location, etc. Some reviews are positive and some are negative. It’s possible to have both positive and negative comments in some categories.
Carefully analyzing customer reviews and taking action based on customer comments will help you strongly influence buying behavior and drive commerce.
