Bandwagon Appeal

Something with the message that “Our product is so good that everyone buys it, so you should, too.”

Or “Our way of doing things is good, so you should do things our way, too.”

If something is popular, does that necessarily mean it’s good?

It comes from the phrase “jump on the bandwagon”
