Proof Overview

What is Proof?

Proof is an online conversion optimization solution designed to increase website conversions within a visitor traffic base, using "social proof" techniques. Promising quick installation of a "marketing pixel" within an existing site that amounts to copying and pasting widget code into pages without any specialist knowledge, Proof's integration support also connects to a range of popular landing page software, CMS, CRM or web publishing platforms. Once added, features include the display of social proof notifications that display the live actions and activity of other site visitors as they make purchases, signup for memberships or mailing lists, place registrations and much more. This affirmation of action from other customers is intended to assure and influence other visitors into converting to customers themselves, while a live visitor counter also displays the current amount of people on the site or on particular pages.

Proof extends these front-facing features with marketing intelligence tools including the following of customer journeys. The system tracks where a visitor goes, what navigational pathways they take from an entry click to any conversion goal point and then feeds that journey back with URL and time stamping. In addition, Proof automatically and intelligently gathers any available visitor information it can find across web and social media whenever a customer submits a valid email address to the site. By populating detailed visitor profiles, Proof aims to inform commercial website owners and administrators about who an online audience are and not just how many people have visited.

The Original Real Time Social Proof For Real Businesses

Overall, my experience with Proof is extremely positive. It's an amazing piece of software, created by and run by a group of individuals who are not content to sit on their accomplishments and never innovate. They are innovating every single day to make this piece of software the best it can be, to increase your conversions, and ultimately put more money in your pocket.

Watch out for their misleading trial tactics!

I had signed up for a free trial in August. However, after exploring the tool I didn’t find it to be the right fit for what we needed at the time. So I put it on a back burner. Like any other SaaS product, they sent across a set of nurturing emails to get me to convert. The last of which was a reminder that it was the last day of my trial. Since there was no mention of being charged once the trial lapse, I didn't do anything. A little more than a month later I find out I have been charged twice -- Aug/ Sep, 129$ each time.

#1 Their email which says (Subject line: "Your free trial is going… going…") only talks about the trial expiring and not the charge that will be applied to the account.
#2 I did not receive any notification informing me of the expected payment deduction. This is standard practice for any susbscription service.
#3 Even after the payment was deducted for August, I did not receive any invoice or confirmation of the payment being deducted. Had I received this, I would have been able to ask for a correction/ refund right there.
#4 During my trial period, their follow-up emails were quick to spot the pixel code wasn't implemented and get me to do so. But after charging my account, there was little or no regard to check in on why I was paying charges for the highest subscription plan when the pixel code was still not implemented.

They cancelled my account but just refunded the fees for September since it was within their 72-hour refund period.

Overall, my experience with Proof is extremely positive.

They are innovating every single day to make this piece of software the best it can be, to increase your conversions, and ultimately put more money in your pocket.

Pros

What I like most about Proof is that it actually works. There seems to be a surplus these days of social proof notification softwares. The sad truth is that most of the competition in this space either does not work or barely works at all. Proof was founded by a hard-working team of entrepreneurs who are unhealthily obsessed with the customer experience and delivering the best product that actually solves the problems of their customers. Most of the competition is simply in this space for a quick cash grab with a shoddily coded product that doesn't come close to do what it promises.

Cons

What I liked least about Proof is that there is a little bit of a learning curve. It might take you an extra 30-40 minutes setting up your first notifications. After that though, once you understand how the system works, you'll fly through creation setup.

Pros

Onboarding experience was decent.
They have a 72-hour charge refund policy but do little to educate users on their trial payments.

Cons

Misleading tactics to convert trial users to paying customers.
Poor customer support.

Overall, Proof has helped us grow our membership base and build trust with our community.

Pros

We noticed an impact as soon as we started using Proof on our website. The insurance industry relies heavily on brand trust, and our members value seeing others who have been successful. Combining Proof with our customer reviews allows our potential members to feel safe and comfortable knowing that we are a high quality company who will be there to support them when they need it most.

Cons

There aren't many cons to this software. The implementation was fast and easy, and Proof has built some very useful options that allow us to customize the tool to our specific needs. It works as it should! In the very beginning, the features were few, but that's changes immensely over the years.

Pros

Social proof goes a long way when someone is deciding to buy your service. Seeing that other people have recently committed helps the buyer feel like they are not alone.

Cons

Only issue I had was understanding the pricing is tiered based off the traffic to the pages you have their script running on. My site gets over 100k visits next aide of my blog but I only use this on two page. I had the script site side and my bill went up. I just changed to only my sell pages and it’s fine.
