eCommerce and Fake Review Stats

A misconception of many marketers is that posting a fake review in response to a negative review will improve their reputation. Fake reviews, however, lead to distrust and can damage your brand. It’s okay to have a negative review. In fact, According to Invesp, a consulting company, “30% of consumers assume online reviews are fake if there are no negative reviews.” Don’t believe us? Take a look at these statistics on Social Media Today’s blog post and these tips from BDX to drive a positive and more credible representation.
