Etsy is a company that has helped make business democracy a reality for millions of people around the world. Over the past few years, this once small marketplace has gone mainstream and is now the go-to place for 90.6 million consumers (as of Q1 2021). It provides the best place for those who discover unique goods and create them, and today I'm going to talk to you about the things you can review on Etsy to help your business.

The Importance Of Reviews

The existence of reviews, on the one hand, provides a platform for consumers to comment on the good and bad products, so that they have a criterion for judging the good and bad products, and want to share them with people around them when they have bought good products, and want to remind others not to step on the pit when they have bought bad products. This is very meaningful for the enthusiastic foreign shoppers who are very happy to help others.

For the platform, reviews, especially those with pictures and videos, make up for the "see but not touch" e-commerce model, making consumers more willing to stay on the platform to select and buy products, increasing trust and enhancing customer stickiness. The survey shows that 90% of consumers trust the reviews on Etsy.
