Excellent plugin

Overall, my experience has been wonderful. I had Influence up and running within minutes of purchasing, and the analytics have been very insightful. It was also easy to go in and adjust my campaigns by adding in more information and conversion settings as I continue to grow.

Pros

I like the level of customization available for this service. It's also very light and doesn't weigh down my site with a lot of extra code.

Cons

I haven't had any real problems or issues come up. I do wish I could move the CTA button away from the Close button, but that's not really major.

Reasons for Choosing Influence

It was new and I like to test out newer tools first (they usually have the best customer service).

Easy to set up social proof for web properties

Pretty good, support is always responsive

Pros

ease of use, generous plan allowance, and really good cost compared to alternatives

Cons

some of the off-the-shelf formatting doesn't have all the little corner cases figured out. For example, the "city, country" format doesn't work for US / Canada, where we want "city, state / province" and north america is the biggest market.

Influence is the use proof tool you need on your site.

The overall experience has been great! The team behind Influence will do great things and the fact that they take on any suggestions that can make the SaaS better, makes it even stronger.

Pros

The founders are very responsive and always willing to take on ideas and requests for features or integrations. The support is amazing and responsive beyond belief! Setting up on your account is too easy! They even create easy to follow instructions for you to easily set up your account and website. Getting details from analytics is amazing! Last but not least the design and user experience is on point! They really have put some thought to this and you will not be disappointed.

Cons

There were some issues for me with the checklist at the beginning. I had cleared some of the steps to set up but it was not checking them off. Not a deal breaker for me though as I could see it working on the site.

Influence Review

Overall, a fantastic app and well worth it. The highlight is the support offered. Live chat is very quick and they are very courteous and they have the time and patience to walk you through. I highly recommend this app to anyone looking to boost social proof as it has helped my site quite a bit.

Pros

This is a great social proof app and I like the ease of use and the functionality. It was very easy to install. Basically install a pixel and the app shows a green dot to show you are live. From there you just setup the different popups like visitors, someone bought your product etc. Here you can set this in many ways, setup when you want this to kick in etc. Once these are set, you are off and running. Overall a good experience.

Cons

The interface could use some freshen up and the developer are aware of it and will be working on that. Other than that I have no other issues, it just works

Show off your stats!

Overall our experience has been very positive and their support team is very helpful!

Pros

Fairly easy to implement with the Zapier integration. more functionality than its competitors and pretty competitive pricing.

Cons

Being picky I think they could add even more functionality and features like fields that you are able to map for custom notifications. Says they will be adding it soon though to looking forward to that.

Reasons for Switching to Influence

The Influence offer had more features.

Bring social proof to your site in less than 10 minutes

Pros

First I like to say that it's easy to install and get it going. It's cool to have our own social proof in an easy to use platform.

Cons

They should have more social proof options and variants to make it more flexible.

Its a decent product for a basic to moderate need

Pros

This is a good product if you got it as a lifetime deal. It is easy to setup and very straight forward.

Cons

It does increase site loading time by quite a bit, so not good if we are cautious of site speed.

The best social proof app for my needs

I use it to show the most recent sales on my website to encourage other customers to place an order based on that social sale proof.

Pros

I will let you show social proof with soo many customizations that other apps simply won't allow. Including changing the name of the person to "Someone" or even changing the format they display the social proof card.

Cons

We need more campaign types. While influence gives me so many customizations in regards to simple social proof (purchase social proof), competitors give many other different types of social proof that Influence does not support at the moment such as full screen take over, triggered notification, notification bar .. etc

Reasons for Choosing Influence

I tried Notification X and didn't have what I wanted also.

Reasons for Switching to Influence

Notifia didn't have the level of customization I needed to control the template of the social proof card.

Quick and Easy Social Proof

Social proof can make or break a sale. With the added ability to create these "pop-ins" quickly, you can add yet another angle of social proof to your websites. It's easy to setup, and I'm very pleased with what I'm seeing so far.

Pros

Influence has been on my radar ever since I saw it used on a competitor's website. I tried it myself and was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to setup and maintain. - Setup takes less than an hour. After creating your account it walks you through setting up your website, campaign, design, and launch. - The design is spot on. You can't go too wrong with what they layout for you. Change a few colors and icons and you're good to go quickly. - Analytics let you see who's seeing it and how your metrics are adding up. One other little thing I love the most is that you can see WHERE people are visiting your site from around the world.

Cons

The one downside of Influence is the way the pixel works, it's been slowing down my sites. I haven't figured this out yet but if speed is a priority, you will take a hit because of the data that has to be sent down from Influence.

Increased my conversions by at least 15%

Has provided a simple, quick way to use the social proof trigger on all the landing pages I work on. Would highly recommend!

Pros

I have been writing sales letters, copy, and video sales letters so we do a lot of testing with all new tools and tactics. Influence increased conversions for all my clients by an average of 10-15%. Consistently, it's almost unbelievable. You may not get the same results... you may get even more.it just depends on how "social proof" hungry your market is before it buys. For me, the results have been remarkable. I have tried other tools as well in the market but the kind of customization and pricing that these guys offer is unparalleled. I’d definitely recommend anyone looking to increase conversions to try and use Influence and give it a shot on all your landing pages.

Cons

Their marketing is pretty bad, so most people don't even know this thing exists. But that's mostly a marketing con than a software con! So far so good.

Very responsive and constant updates

Pros

Constant updates, wonderful customer support. Started by doing the free trial, but I didn't even have to complete the free trial, I was sold on it pretty quick and became a paying customer, this software has a great future. Give it a try, you have questions or need new features ask them, they are very responsive.

Cons

The UI still needs some development but as of this post the company was still in startup phase so thats understandable but I'm sure with the constant updates it will all be fixed. Its still a company thats trying to make a name for themselves but with what Ive seen their headed the right direction.

Sales got boosted

Overall experience with support and plugin is very much satisfied.

Pros

I setup this plugin on my Magento website. I was looking for similar solution from long time. Researched on some but later found this one which solved many requirements of us. Its design and connectivity with my Mailchimp account is very useful. That featured is very useful to us thank to Influence. These guys helped me setting up plugin on my website. Also helped me to get maximum from the plugin.

Cons

I didn't found any issue yet, hoping only more features we will get to enhance our sales.

Great experience so far

Pros

Very simple and easy to setup and costs way lesser than the other competitors which are providing very average customer experience.

Cons

Their analytics section is pretty basic, I am looking to integrate their analytics with my other analytics tool as integrations. I have asked the team and they have assured to bring those changes in the future as they are in the roadmap. Let’s see I am really looking out to see how it grows in the future.

Pros

Thoughts on app. It's very easy to setup and configure (in my opinion) using Google Tag Manager. I would love more styling control on the widgets. Otherwise I have no complaints.

Cons

I'll be honest there are some minor issues with items like the limited styling options for the pop up.
