This is how reviews look on the store front
Reviews are displayed on every product page. Customers can leave text reviews, upload a photograph along with text.
Once the customer has left a review he will receive rewards in store credits.
Flits does not have a functionality to give separate rewards for text and photos.
Customers can earn credit on the same review
A big issue arises when merchants have to request shoppers to leave reviews. Majority shoppers may be reluctant to leave a review given it is difficult to engage them once they are done shopping. But reviews matter a lot for each and every product. Reviews serve as a basis for many new customers that helps them in decision making.
How to get more text/photo reviews ?
Getting reviews is a very big challenge for all product and service providers. Especially when it comes to positive reviews. Many times when we are asked to leave a review we just tap on the stars, give 5 or 4 stars and skip the part of writing a review.
However this changed after one of the stores I used to shop from started giving credits for writing a review. They also gave extra credits for attaching photos with the review. I started clicking pictures after every purchase and religiously left a review without anyone asking for it.
Before this I left reviews only if the product was superb or extremely poor or if I was forced to write something.If someone as lazy as me could be motivated to leave reviews along with a photograph, others can be motivated too.
Merchants should keep in mind that they should focus on getting genuine reviews and not fake/paid reviews. Customers are smart enough to figure out which reviews are fake. Fake reviews only bring down the credibility of your store. Hence, sending a follow-up email asking customers to leave a review is the best strategy.
Why do you need photo reviews ?
As a merchant you may think why do I need photo reviews. Your business is doing fine even with text reviews. But as e-commerce is advancing we also need to change the perception of people.
Reviews let the customers know them know the product you sell is 100% authentic.
It will also give you a chance to find if the customer’s complaint for your product is genuine or not.
Reviews are a fool proof way to promote your product. It gives the customer to verify your claims about the product.
Reviews let customers find out beforehand what problems they might face or what are the precautions they need to take after buying the product
