One in two consumers will extensively research and compare options before making a purchase. Use social proof to give your customers the confidence to select the product, holiday destination or content that is right for them. Make them buy before they bounce and inspire them with your trending items. 

  • Make your marketing more engaging and better converting.
  • Harness FOMO to speed up decision making.
  • Build consumer trust in a purchase decision.
  • Tackle browse, form and cart abandonment.

Comprehensive set of social proof features

Popularity messaging: Boost conversion rates

Help consumers make a purchase decision by showing if a product is selling fast, using real-time behavioral data of other shoppers. Incorporate product trends, sales counters, add-to-baskets, and audience volumes, showing how many people have viewed or bought a certain product recently.

Scarcity messaging: Speed up decision making

Shoppers are most attracted to items that are popular with fellow customers. Harness FOMO by creating urgency with low-in-stock messages. Display remaining stock to highlight how scarce a product is to ensure customers don’t miss out.

Ratings and reviews: Reduce purchase anxiety

Over half of consumers (56%) look for star ratings when making a purchase. Champion authentic peer ratings and reviews to reassure shoppers and give them confidence in completing their order. They're pulled in real-time from your product rating provider or in-house solution, ensuring that only recent and positive scores are shown.

Keep full control

You can customize all aspects of the social proof widgets: the content that is displayed, the layout and how and when it appears. Set a threshold that must be reached for the widget to be displayed as well as fallback options. For example, you can set the ratings and reviews widget to show only rating scores of three stars and above. Or set popularity messaging to display how often the product is browsed, if the number of products purchased is below your threshold.
