Why you need to include UGC in your marketing mix

1. UGC promotes transparency and authenticity

Because UGC is created by regular people without coordination with the brand, it tends to resonate noticeably with consumers.

2. UGC helps contextualize your products

Seeing relatable people use your products allows potential buyers to imagine owning and using your product in their daily lives.

3. UGC helps promote trust in your brand

When a consumer can easily access UGC from people like them, they’re more likely to trust your brand and product quality.

4. Leveraging UGC shows that your brand cares

Interacting with UGC shows customers you value them as a part of your online community, and that you actually listen to what they’re saying.

5. UGC = cost-effective, scaleable content

Leveraging UGC can reduce costs and resources needed on your team’s end, giving you more time to focus on other activities.
