Just getting started with User Generated Content? We can help make it easy!

What is user-generated content and how do I create it?

User-generated content (UGC) is any type of content that is created by an individual, rather than businesses or organisations. This can include things like reviews, ratings, photos, videos, and comments that are posted on social media, review websites, and other online platforms. 

Using UGC can be an effective way for businesses to increase sales, as it can help to build trust and credibility with potential customers. Seeing positive reviews and ratings from real customers can be more persuasive than traditional marketing messages, and can help to convince people to make 
a purchase.

There are a number of paid platforms out there that help businesses connect with influencers, but they can be time-consuming and painful to manage. OMDIGI can get you the content you need without the headache by handling the entire process for you.

Influencers and You: An Introduction to Influencer Marketing

What is an influencer? An influencer is a person who has the ability to influence the decisions, opinions, or actions of others through their online presence, typically on social media platforms. Influencers often have a large following on platforms such as Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, or Twitter, and they use their influence to promote products, services, or ideas to their audience. 

Many influencers have a specific niche or area of expertise, such as fashion, beauty, travel, or fitness, and they often work with brands to create sponsored content or promote products that align with their personal brand.

Influencer marketing refers to the type of marketing in which a company partners with an influencer to promote its products or services to the influencer’s audience. Companies often partner with influencers who align with their brand values and whose audiences are likely to be interested in the brand.

Benefits of UGC for your business

UGC content is a valuable tool for showcasing your products in a way that the customer would use them. Showcasing your product in a real-world setting gives potential customers a sense of how the product is actually used. This method of showcasing your products builds authenticity and allows you to promote your products without appearing too ‘salesy’.

One of the key advantages of UGC is that it is highly authentic and credible. When potential customers see real people sharing positive experiences and opinions about your business, they are more likely to trust and engage with your brand. With consumers 2.4x more likely to view user-generated content as more authentic than brand-created content, it’s clear that UGC can be highly effective when used intelligently.

On social media platforms dominated by ads and promotions, utilising UGC allows your content to effectively blend into the landscape of social media without appearing too much like an advertisement. On an infinitely scrolling feed, sales ads stand out in the wrong way against a backdrop of authentic images & video. We're more likely to immediately swipe away from a sales pitch, so the key is to get your offer across without looking like an ad!

UGC is also an effective way to boost conversions. Conversions refer to the number of visitors to a website who take a desired action, such as making a purchase or signing up for a newsletter. Showcasing UGC on their website allows businesses to build trust and credibility with potential customers which increases the likelihood of conversion. Additionally, sharing UGC on social media and other online platforms can help to drive traffic to the business's website, which can also lead to an increase in conversions.
