Edging out your competition 2018 study published in the Journal of Consumer Research found that four-star reviews can be more persuasive to potential customers than five-star reviews — increasing the likelihood of a purchase by 19%. Boston University’s Associate Professor Daniella Kupor, also explains, “We found that when people saw the four-star review, they thought that the review was more through and that the reviewer’s evaluation was more accurate… A very thoughtful, moderately positive review can more greatly persuade people to purchase a product than an extremely positive review that clearly didn’t result from a lot of thought.” 4 Star reviews with plenty of context are best.
