Shoppers love seeing real people rave about your products. 

Fera makes it easy to get customers to leave video reviews and showcase these video testimonials right where potential customers are making their buying decisions, significantly increasing the chances of them hitting that 'Add to Cart' button.

Real-Life Example: Add a Video Testimonial on Shopify

Imagine this: A shopper lands on your product page, intrigued but hesitant. They think to themselves, ‘Is this skirt going to look good in real life?’ 

Then, they see a video testimonial from a happy customer, showcasing how they styled the skirt and sharing their genuine excitement and satisfaction. 

That's the moment of transformation – from hesitation to "take my money!" 

Fera makes these moments happen more often.

Preparing Your Video Reviews or UGC Content

Video Reviews & UGC

Now let’s talk about preparing your video reviews!

1. Gather and Organize Your Videos

If you haven’t gotten any video reviews yet, but have some UGC that was sent to you or you found on social media, start by collecting all the video reviews you have. 

Create a dedicated folder on your computer or cloud storage to keep everything organized. 

Label your videos clearly, by product name or reviewer, so you can easily find and manage them later. 

This step saves you a ton of time when it's time to upload.

2. Choose the Right Format

For the best results, stick to popular video formats like MP4, which is widely supported and known for its high quality with relatively small file sizes.

3. Opt for Web-Optimized Resolutions

While 4K videos look stunning, they're not always practical for web use due to their large size. 

Aim for a happy medium like 1080p or even 720p for your video reviews. 

These resolutions still look great on most screens and help keep your site's loading times snappy.

4. Keep It Short and Sweet

Attention spans are short! 

Edit your video reviews to keep them engaging and to the point. A 30-second to 1-minute video is perfect for holding viewers' attention and conveying a message effectively. 

Trim any unnecessary parts at the beginning or end and focus on the highlights of the review.

5. Upload Your Videos Into Fera!

Lastly, you can upload your videos into Fera by dragging and dropping the files or selecting a URL.
