Design Pattern #18 : Social Proof

Effective persuasion taps into basic human instincts.

And one of the most powerful instincts is the need to belong. We are social animals and we want to fit in. We want to do what everyone else is doing.

Marketers leverage this as much as they can. But how?

Bandwagon Effect : People tend to adopt the beliefs, ideas, fads and trends that are already been adopted by others.

Groupthink Effect : People tend to take a decision that confirms with the majority. Why and how to use it?

Show testimonials, unboxing videos, reviews & photos of people using your product. You can also show credible media outlets mentioning your products.
