Bazaarvoice FAQs

Curious about what we do? We’ve compiled all of the common questions that we get from our customers. From topics like user-generated content to social commerce solutions, we’re here to keep you in-the-know.

What does Bazaarvoice do?

Good question. We provide software that allows brands and retailers to find and reach consumers and win them over with content they trust. Every month, more than 1 billion shoppers view and share authentic user-generated content, from ratings and reviews to curated social content, across the 11,500+ brand and retail websites in our network. We make every shopping experience feel personal.

What is user-generated content?

User-generated content (UGC) is any content—social images, ratings and reviews, videos—created by an individual, rather than a brand.

What are ratings and reviews?

Ratings and reviews capture consumer opinions about your products or services, and displays their valuable input on your site. They increase sales, decrease product returns, and build trust in your brand. Collected reviews can then be syndicated to the Bazaarvoice Network.

What is the Bazaarvoice Network?

The Bazaarvoice Network is the summation of the Bazaarvoice Platform and Bazaarvoice solutions on Bazaarvoice client’s sites. It provides social data about the online and offline shopping behavior of more than 500 million monthly users. This enables marketers and Bazaarvoice clients to identify real-time purchase intent and better target consumers with more relevant, engaging experiences that drive e-commerce conversion, average order value, brand loyalty and repeat business.

What are the benefits of joining the Bazaarvoice Network?

Seamless experience: You submit product catalogs and review content then we manage the product matching and distribution process to provide a turnkey experience – you don’t need to implement any software to sync to the network.
