Product reviews are the most important element you can use to gain trust and drive sales on your website.
- Most consumers read 4-6 reviews before they’ll trust your business
- Excellent ratings prompt customers to spend 31% more money
- 72% of consumers will take action only after reading a positive review
So why not turn these important reviews into an interactive element that keeps shoppers engaged and on your site?
