Mountain Gear, a web and catalog retailer, worked with PowerReviews, a provider of a customer reviews technology platform, and included its customer review content in a recent e-mail marketing campaign. With the review content serving as a source of product recommendations, Mountain Gear realized 5-8% increases in its click-through rate, 14-17% increases in its conversion rates for purchases, and 81-85% increases in average order values

"PowerReviews allowed us to easily deliver customer-friendly, highly-informative product reviews," says Whitney Parsons, Internet Marketing Manager of Mountain Gear. "Not only was the integration and start-up process quick and easy, but the feature has caught on quickly and been very popular with our customers."
