Resulting in an additional 1.71% increase in online conversion rate uplift for FatFace

Here at Taggstar we are delighted to be partnering with Bazaarvoice to bring User Generated Content (UGC) into our social proof messaging. Here is the press release announcing our partnership:

Bazaarvoice, the leading provider of product reviews and user-generated (UGC) solutions and Taggstar, the social proof messaging market leader, have partnered to integrate user-generated content into social proof messaging.

The incorporation of user-generated content, such as ratings and reviews, from Bazaarvoice into Taggstar’s social proof messaging combines two powerful conversion rate optimization technologies into one user experience. This lets shoppers easily understand review ratings and social proof data in a single glance, leading to better buying decisions.

FatFace, a British family, lifestyle clothing brand with a unique heritage and client of both Bazaarvoice and Taggstar, was able to highlight the percentage of people that recommended an item and the number of people that rated an item five stars on their product description pages (PDP).

This resulted in an additional 1.71% conversion rate uplift in just 10 days on top of the 4.4% delivered by the initial implementation of social proof.

“Our customer product reviews provide shoppers with the confidence they need to make a purchase,” commented Liam Price, Head of Digital at FatFace. “Reviews reinforce our great customer ratings and product quality; working with Taggstar allows us to bring this important part of the purchase consideration forward in the customer journey. Integrating reviews with social proof delivered an additional 1.71% conversion rate uplift for FatFace.”

“This enables shoppers to easily understand not only what is popular, trending, and selling fast in real-time, but also combines user-generated content from previous purchasers,” said Marjorie Leonidas, CEO of Taggstar. “This leads to better customer loyalty and satisfaction and lower returns.”

Taggstar leverages the Bazaarvoice API to aggregate authentic review content into a form that can be displayed as a social proof message balloon, along with Taggstar’s real-time messages, including audience, order volume, and trending products. This allows shoppers to make confident decisions when shopping online.

“At Bazaarvoice, we are dedicated to supercharging commerce engines for brands and retailers while creating smarter shopping experiences for consumers. The voice of the customer is the power behind user-generated content and its effectiveness in driving purchase decisions,” states Zarina Lam Stanford, CMO, Bazaarvoice. “By partnering with Taggstar, we bring the value of authentic user-generated content like reviews along with Taggstar’s powerful social proof messaging to connect brands and shoppers, converting moments of inspiration into purchase decisions where and when the shoppers are. We look forward to seeing this partnership extend globally.”
