Social proof and how to use it to increase your sales conversions

Are you getting a lot of website traffic but few conversions? Maybe you need some more calls to action or social proof to encourage customers to buy?  

Social proof is the act of using reviews and social prompts to validate the use of a product or service. According to a 2020 survey by BrightLocal, 82% of consumers read online reviews for local businesses before making a purchasing decision.

Flexible, dynamic, collaborative – what to expect from Yellow Door in 2021

A few months ago, some of us were baselessly optimistic that at the stroke of midnight on 31 December all of our 2020 troubles would disappear, and we would stride in 2021 with the pandemic firmly behind us.

Create an online shop for your products. How hard can it be?

If you read our previous post about e-commerce after COVID then you probably don’t need us to tell you again that e-commerce or online shopping is the way of the future.

So, how do you tap into this market, and where do you start?
