Traditional branding strategies like radio or TV ads, billboards, etc. create redundancy of the content, to which the customers grow tired. UGC offers authenticity to the material due to its generation by a fellow customer. Customer experience still plays an important part here, as rich and satisfying the product is- the chances of sharing and passing the experience by the customer raises. The strategy offers higher potential in the expansion of a company’s customer base. Social media is the dominant platform for UGC campaigns to increase social traffic. The increase in the follower base automatically extends the reach and awareness of the audience. Features in social media such as likes, shares, comment, and retweets help to boost web traffic and page views.
Analytical tools in social platforms can guide the company to use the frequently used words and phrases for the next strategic plan. The insights offered by the analytical tools help to generate leads and increase sales. With the expansion of audience reach and engagement, UGC also builds a competitive environment for the company. The broad exposure of the brand in a competitive market makes a loyal customer fan base. Initiating the giveaways is another way to engage the fan or audience; it encourages more purchases.
