Hi All

I have vast amount of "reviews" for products sold, I'm trying to think of away to make use of these, The consumer reviews through amazon are fine, but I have other reviews for products that have been sent to a reviewer, the reviwers are generally industry experts, Radio DJ's, Musicians etc.

Our ecommerce site is not great so I dont feel that uplaoding the review to our site is really doing them justice. I was comtemplating asking the reviewers to add their content to the companies facebook page.

In an ideal world i'd have them upload the reviews to the company site/blog possibly aggregate the content further but I have a lot of technical/budgetary restraints at the moment.

Does any one have any good ideas for what to do with reviews? Has anyone had success with utilzing them?

...how about adding a blog section to your ecom site and post them there, shall get you nice links if they are from experts, and indirectly helping your ecom site

That's exactly what i had in mind, unfortunatly due to technical constraints its not possible right now, The CMS is incredibly limiting,the site badly needs rebuilding but thats another story.

I do have blog on blogspot that I use to get content on my site indexed (why?.. see above the CMS is a nightmare)The Blog does not seem to rank well or generate much traffic as its content changes quite often

Theoretically yes but I dont have access to ecommerce domain, the development/hosting company manage it, and they like to charge us for thinking about calling them.
