Both allow you to increase confidence in you with serious and authentic reviews. These solutions are not only an integral part of the market, but are also considered “state of the art” for meaningful and unadulterated customer reviews.
Collecting reviews is also often a challenge. However, with purposefully built campaigns and marketing automation tools, such as Mautic, you will increase your authenticity with pleasure and ease and take your business to the next level.

Why should you collect reviews for your online store?
Your trustworthiness is one of the most important factors that determines the success of your business. You can increase these by means of a variety of measures. Whether through an authentic social media presence, an informative website or a unique product that truly helps many people.
If your customers have had positive experiences with your products or services, chances are they will share them with other people. The positive effect is that your potential customers gain confidence in you and your company and are therefore more willing to buy.
However, it is important for your success that the reviews are authentic and preferably available on a reputable comparison portal such as Trusted Shops or Trustpilot.
Social proof is still the means of choice to gain the trust of your customers and thus also increase your sales.
The more positive reviews you have, the higher your sales and your profit. Even if a customer evaluates your product badly – the bottom line is that the overall result is getting better and better with the growing number of good reviews.
And don’t be afraid of bad reviews. A few of them between many good ones, make you mostly more human and authentic in the eyes of the customers. It only becomes problematic when the bad ratings outweigh the bad ratings.

This allows you to adapt your portfolio to your specific wishes and suggestions and surprise your customers with desired improvements.
Information about your customers is the be-all and end-all of your business. They keep your business running and keep your product or service in the right spotlight and keep your customers happy.
