3 tips to create high quality UGC

Here are three important tips for influencers that will help you create fun, engaging, and unforgettable UGC. Whether you're a social media superstar, a blogger extraordinaire, or a content creator of any kind, these tips will help you make your mark and create amazing content.

TIP 1. Share quality content

The quality of your content can greatly impact how successful your UGC contributions are. High-quality content looks better and can help the business build trust and establish credibility with potential customers.

How can you make your UGC contribution worth its weight in gold?

Use clear and well-lit photos - If you're sharing photos, make sure they're well-lit and clearly show the product or service you're reviewing. This is an article about the importance of light in photography, especially product photography. You can also check this article from Later, which gives you an idea of what equipment you need as a micro-influencer.

Provide detailed and accurate information - If you're writing a review, be sure to provide relevant information about the product or service. Below, you can see a UGC made by @Hilary. It is an Instagram post about a product from @sofasoycandles

Be authentic and genuine - Your contributions should reflect honest opinions and experiences. Don't be afraid to share both the good and the bad.

To be authentic and genuine in your content creation, you should focus on creating content that is true to your own personal style, voice, and perspective.

This might mean sharing personal experiences, opinions, and thoughts or using your own unique voice and style in your writing or speaking.

TIP 2. Make it personal

Personalizing your UGC can make your contributions stand out and help the business connect meaningfully with potential customers. By sharing your unique experiences and perspectives, you can help the business tell its story in a way that resonates with its audience.

This is how you can add a personal touch and show the world what sets you apart:

Tell a story - In the context of content creation, "telling a story" means using a narrative structure to present information or ideas in a way that is more engaging and relatable to your audience.

For example, if you're creating a marketing campaign for a product, you might tell a story about a customer who used the product and experienced significant benefits. Check this short article to see storytelling's beauty and its meaning.

Use your voice - Write in your voice, and let your personality shine through in your contributions. This refers to the idea that using your own unique style, tone, and perspective can help make your content more engaging and relatable to your audience.

Incorporating your voice into your content can help it stand out and make a stronger impression on consumers.

A couple of tools that can help you with storytelling and create your unique voice are:

Share why you're passionate about the business or product - Let others know what you love about it and why you're happy to support them. You can share why you are passionate about a particular product or business by creating content showcasing your personal experiences.

For example, you might create a video review of a product, detailing why you like it and how it has impacted your life, or you might write a blog post about a business, explaining why you are a loyal customer and why you believe others should consider supporting it.

TIP 3. Get the most out of your UGC

Keep this in mind! You're the key ingredient in whipping up a top-notch UGC community. The more you join in, the more diverse and eclectic the content will be, the more it will attract a wider audience. So, don't be shy, jump in and add your unique flavor to the mix!

There are a few things you can do to make your contribution even more valuable:

Use a user-friendly platform - Look for platforms that are easy to use and accessible to everyone. 

Take advantage of incentives - If the business offers discounts or participation prizes, be sure you take advantage of those opportunities.

Engage with others and share your feedback - Engaging with others and sharing your feedback is a crucial aspect of creating great UGC. When you engage with other users and give feedback, you build a sense of community and create a positive feedback loop that can help improve your content and attract more engagement. Make sure you:

  • Respond to comments and messages: This shows that you value their input and are interested in their feedback.
  • Share other users' content: This can help build relationships with other creators and can also help you discover new ideas and perspectives.
  • Give constructive feedback: It can help build trust and respect among your peers and can also help improve the overall quality of the UGC community.
  • Collaborate with other creators: Collaboration can help you reach new audiences and create content that's unique and memorable.
