Food and Beverage brands are seeing their conversion rates rise due to incorporating User Generated Content. Social proof offers stunning eCommerce results.
User content shows food and beverages being enjoyed by consumers in real life which acts as a form of social proof.
Food and beverage products photographed in their packaging don’t give consumers the big picture when it comes to the life span of the product. UGC can inspire customers with how to create recipes that bring food and beverages to life.
Consider a user visiting a food and beverage page on an eCommerce site. What users see at this initial phase of the customer journey will dictate what purchasing decisions they will make next. The good news is that there is a direct correlation between having food and beverage UGC on a page and customer engagement and conversion. Show shoppers how fantastic your products truly are with real social media content and your engagement and conversion rates will thank you.
The Catalonian retail grocery chain, Ametller Origen, understood the unique challenges of advertising food and beverages on their site, namely that a catalog of packaged products on a webpage doesn’t always lead to a dynamic online shopping experience. Thankfully, there is a wealth of food and drink lovers sharing moments of preparation and consumption on social media. Not only does UGC help to build community and bolster brand identity online, but it also brings food and beverages to life.
“We wanted to enrich our website with authentic content from our users, because I think it is much more pleasant when you are shopping online. Instead of seeing only a grid of products with a page with the list of all the products of one type, being able to see images that depict moments of consumption. It is one thing to see a product in a package like the ones you see in the store and another thing is to see it at the moment of consumption, which is much more aspirational.”Read Case Study
