According to Forbes, brands and retailers spend more than $1 trillion each year on promoting their products. They aim to-
- Attract visitors
- Create pleasant experiences
- Offer something enticing
However, in many cases, nothing works. The users walk away either physically or virtually.
What could be the possible reason behind this?
When we intend to buy something online, we usually look for several options, read tons of reviews, compare the product features and pricing options. In the end, things get more confusing, and we get distracted from the quality product.
Moreover, there are specific factors that have a straight negative impact on consumers. Along with millions of websites, features, services, and pricing, there are a plethora of striking factors.
- Delivery time
- Shipping cost
- Lengthy web service
- Return policy
These things invoke a strong lack of confidence in online purchases. Users need a solid reason to rely on the product.
So how do we resolve the issue?
According to Hubspot, 81% of consumers look for advice from friends and family when they want to purchase something. Whether online reviews or a conversation, it has a powerful influence over businesses. In some cases, businesses with a few quality products with good reviews have a great potential to increase the chances of buying the product.
Statistics from Brightlocal says,
- 97% of the shoppers who read online reviews from other consumers also read responses from businesses
- 79% of shoppers say they trust social reviews as much as personal recommendations
- 54.7% of consumers read at least four reviews before buying a product
