If it wasn’t clear by now, the presence of user reviews on your site can have a drastic impact on consumer behavior, both offline and online. An infographic from Bazaarvoice examines just how much reviews can impact offline sales.
Research-online-buy-offline, or ROBO as Bazaarvoice calls it, is something users have been doing for years now. Bazaarvoice found that 56 percent of online buyers read reviews before they make a purchase, and 45 percent of brick-and-mortar shoppers read online reviews too.
Bazaarvoice identified a ROBO multiplier by measuring the in-store revenue for items based on the amount of money driven from online purchases influenced by reviews..

Because users will seek it out, making that content easily available will increase revenues if customers find what they are looking for.
