How do you utilize Customer reviews?
Consumers find it hard deciding from variety of product and sellers. Peer-to-Peer communication with consumers of a product or assurances made by the manufacturers or retailers (who will for sure give positive reviews for the product) have been replaced by disparate customer reviews. Based on the satisfaction customers acquire from these products they leave comments on the sites of the sellers stating their pleasure or displeasure.
Reviews have been of great benefit to both the buyers and sellers. According to recent studies more than 50% of buyers make their decisions based on reviews on the products they intend to buy and a percentage have been dissuaded by negative reviews. Manufacturers and retailers have recently got a hold on this fact and how it affects their sales, this has led to a lot of fake reviews on some of these sites. The buyer now has a great deal of work in maximizing reviews to effectively decide and buy product that meet their needs.
Knowing exactly what you want and the amount of satisfaction you desire from the product is paramount in making an efficient and guided use of reviews. Buyers can easily get misled with reviews of product they intent to buy when they don’t know for sure what to buy.
Reading a lot of reviews on a product from various sellers and manufacturers provides a bigger picture and help you get a more thorough feel for a particular product or service. Checking that there is a realistic distribution of ratings; real customers will often rank products somewhere in the middle to reflect their real feelings. Paying attention to the times that reviews were posted. Research shows that if a majority of the positive reviews were written within minutes of one another, may be a sign that a fake poster has logged on to promote the product. In addition, examining the dates that reviews were posted fish out a lot of fakes. If all of the positive reviews were posted around the time that the product was released, that may be a sign that someone was posting positive reviews to promote the product.
Despite reading multiple reviews, consumers should be aware of language commonly used in phony reviews. Real reviews will read more personally. An authentic product review for example will mention the user’s relationship with the product and provide specific details about why they liked or disliked it.
Reading a lot of reviews can be tedious, available technologies can salvage this situation. There are plenty of useful sites out there. Price comparison sites can help you find the lowest cost when you’ve decided on an item. Some sites can verify the authenticity of reviews from sales sites. Other sites can tell you if an item is in stock at various locations. This is perfect when that new product seems to be available in a hand full of online outlets.
The reputations and credibility of websites and products are improved by reviews; positive or negative, these reviews alleviating doubt regarding whether or not you should make a purchase and help narrow down the options amid a sea of seemingly equal products.
Reviews are beneficial to both the sellers and the buyers. A great deal of improvement on present product as compared to the past brands have been primarily due to feedbacks from consumers.
