WordPress:  Social Proof Plugins

What is Digital Marketing Social Proof?

According to Wikipedia:

“Social proof is a psychological and social phenomenon wherein people copy the actions of others in an attempt to undertake behavior in a given situation.”

Did You Know?

Data shows over 70% of online consumers look at a product review prior to making a purchase, and consumers are more likely to trust their peers over advertising when it comes to purchasing decisions. 

Social proof can take a variety of forms such as testimonials, reviews, number of Facebook fans, or the number of newsletter subscribers. Using Social proof on websites increases conversion rates, and encourages donations, downloads, comments, or any specific goal you put into place.
