How to boost sales and build buyer confidence with social proof apps

Last updated

You must have noticed how people want to eat at a restaurant just because it's crowded. There is a way to create the same dynamic in your Ecwid store.

Leverage the power of social proof apps to show that your store is live and busy, increase the sales conversion rate, engage visitors and create a sense of trust to your business. There are several apps that you can choose from.

Fomo

The application will turn your website into the online equivalent of a busy store. It allows to display recent customer behaviors to the store visitors in real-time, highlight customers who completed checkout.

Fomo easily integrates with Zapier, Mailchimp, Instagram, and other popular social apps to display recent orders, newsletter subscribers, product photos, and much more.

Pricing

The app price is $19 USD / month with a free trial.

Setup

The app has a friendly interface where you can edit the content and style of notification templates and manage the events.

Events are basically notifications. Each time Ecwid sends data to Fomo, such as a customer's first name, or a new Instagram photo, this is turned into an event.

Templates allow you to create unique messages for group of events. Templates contain the structure of each event, but not the event content itself. The supported variables for building the message templates include {{ first_name }} , {{ city }} , {{ country }} , {{ title }} , {{ title_with_link }} , {{ time_ago }}.
