User-generated content (UGC) has now become a strong technique which massive companies use to marketing their new brands. Instead of marketing themselves, the companies understand how effective it might be to let the customers raise the conversations and talk or post about the brand on social media platforms. When the content is produced and gave out by the other customers, people will have a better recognition on the products when the companies don’t have to do much to marketing themselves.
This marketing method using user-generated content has ensured the power of the consumers nowadays when most of the reliable content on different social media platforms are created and used by them. Marketing now doesn’t have to depend on the press anymore, who wants to sit there flipping over pages to find their favorite cars when they can go online to those car websites and ask for advices from those who are cars lovers? Just a click and we customers have all the information about the stuff we intend to buy. How convenient is that!
