Product reviews are all over the internet. Whether you are looking for something online, reading a blog post, watching a video, or on social media, you will probably come across a product review. Product reviews are a form of feedback or opinion provided by customers who have experienced the product or service. They can be written, spoken, or seen, and they can be anything from simple ratings and comments to detailed descriptions and stories.

Product reviews are not only essential for customers who seek to make informed purchasing decisions, but also for brands and marketers who seek to gain a more in-depth understanding of their customers, improve their products and services, and increase sales and profits. Product reviews can give you a good idea of what customers want, like, expect, and are happy about. They can also help brands and marketers tell their value proposition, build trust and credibility, and influence customer behaviour.

However, product reviews are not always easy to manage. Product reviews come in different types with their own advantages and disadvantages. There are also factors that affect how product reviews affect buying decisions, such as the source, tone, content, and context of the reviews.
