The Big Question: Why should you leave reviews on social media?
With the advent of social media platforms, more and more brands are looking to boost their brand reputation by building up their presence on social media. Apart from their own advertising efforts, product reviews play a big part in making a brand credible to new/ potential customers.
As such, these brands look for reviewers — some are even willing to pay people to review them, or recruit them as brand ambassadors! Posting reviews can be a really good way to pass time and earn rewards simultaneously. Some reviewers even have it as their part-time, or even full-time job!
So, how exactly do you leave reviews on social media?
Through Review Platforms
Some social media platforms, such as Facebook, already have their own review systems. Facebook uses a Recommendations system where you can recommend the business/ brand to your Facebook Friends. To use this feature, simply click on “Reviews” on the business’/ brand’s Facebook page and select “Yes” or “No” under “Do you recommend [brand]?”. Here’s a picture by EmbedSocial for reference:
Through Content Creation
Alternatively, you could post on social media to leave a review! The 2 most common methods to do so are through product hauls and individual product reviews.
Hauls: If you intend to review a lot of products, a good way to do so would be through a haul, where you can showcase all the different products you received. You can do an unboxing video, or simply rate the products on a scale of 1-10!
Individual product reviews: These can be really great for brands who are seeking to promote new products that just hit the market! These reviews tend to be more in-depth than the haul variation, which allows you to elaborate more on your experience using your products.
