Launch products with UGC
Make every product launch a success.
The difference between launch success and failure? User-generated content. Hit the ground running with product pages already populated with customer photos, ratings, and reviews. Help your customers uncover all the intel they need to click that buy button with conviction. Launch with confidence. Use pre-launch feedback to your advantage by testing how your product will be perceived so you can emphasize the features customers crave most.
Day one success
Launch products with reviews on day one
Want to guarantee compelling user-generated content for your product on day one? Put your products in the hands of prospective customers before launch day, with our sampling programs. Your lucky customers are treated to your new product, and excitedly write, snap, film, and post all about it. It’s how JBL launched new headphones with more than 100 reviews and a 4.5 average rating. The result? One of their best-selling pre-orders.
Win at retail
The secret to category success
Create a splash in the marketplace for new products when you have direct competition. UGC volume, quality, and recency are all critical to getting consumer attention. Customers are more likely to buy products with more reviews (46% of them say so). That’s why Burt’s Bees used Bazaarvoice Sampling to launch its first cosmetics line. The brand successfully broke into a new category with over 300 reviews on launch day that set them apart and validated their product.
Meet consumer needs
Launch products you know your customers will love
You’re launching a new product. Super exciting. You think your product messaging highlights the most important customer needs and wants. But does it? Use the feedback you get from sampling to test your product messaging and materials before launch. Learn from this virtual focus group so you can deliver the strongest launch campaign. That’s how KidKraft identified a new way customers were using their dollhouses and rolled out a new model to meet those needs, creating a significant uplift in sales.
