Say it with us, folks: user-generated content is a great thing! For starters, it’s not only the perfect way to interact with your audience while promoting your brand and increasing the reach of your marketing efforts, it also helps to reinforce a brand’s reputation. Need more evidence? User-generated content is also a great way to have a constant flow of up-to-date and versatile content that your audience can view. Here are some of the top ways CreativeCarbon can help your company to cleverly cultivate user-generated content:
Contests can be used to encourage the audience to submit content related to your company, from photo captions to consumer essays. This can attract long-form content and quality submissions from viewers who enjoy feeling like they are a part of a community.
An incentive is a great way to engage your target audience and gather user-generated content. These are different from contests; you have to offer a reward to every participant, which often increases the number of participants. Consider offering a discount or free samples for interacting on social media.
An excellent form of user-generated content comes in the form of testimonials and reviews. Customers like to feel involved and love to state their opinions when it comes to brands. Gather testimonials and reviews to show just how amazing your company is.
