Taggstar’s Black Friday Report: The Impact of Social Proof on Black Friday in 2016

Marjorie Leonidas

Taggstar provides real-time, social proof messaging for e-commerce to drive increased sales conversions and revenue along with better customer engagement and a reduction in basket abandonment.

Each year we look at how our messages performed for e-commerce sites using Taggstar on Black Friday. We love to compare the role social proof messaging plays year-on-year. It’s a fascinating case in shopper behaviour to see how the transparent buying patterns of shoppers improve the sales conversions of others.

In 2016, we delivered close to a staggering 120 million real-time social proof messages for customers on some of the UK’s largest online retailers, which contributed to increasing revenue.

When there are so many bargains to be had, we can see that our messages are helping shoppers to make a quicker, more confident decision to buy. In fact, during Black Friday 2016 we saw sales conversion rate uplifts of up to 3.75 per cent based on A/B testing of all e-commerce sites using Taggstar.
