Social Status

Written by Guido Jansen in
August 2010


Whatever we do, we continually assess how our actions either enhance or diminish our social position.


  1. You can use statistics to let people privately know how they are doing compared to other customers in your shop. You could present them with well-known 'people who bought this also bought...' functionality so people can compare their behavior with others.
  2. You can also create a public form to let customers 'show off' their status to others. You can show the number of products bought, reviews entered or points collected. Take care to only measure those thing that are linked to desired behaviors.

In 2019 I will start a new Dutch podcast series about CRO (Conversion Rate Optimization). I want to get a better insight into the Dutch CRO field, get an idea of how everyone is working, what the struggles are and use this platform to exchange knowledge and experience. I'll be interviewing people working in/with CRO at agencies, tool vendors, merchants and other end-users.
