Social Status

Written by Guido Jansen in
August 2010

Theory:

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

Application:

  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.

This is a bonus episode with Emily Robinson (Senior Data Scientist at Warby Parker) en Lukas Vermeer (Director of Experimentation at Booking.com). In her earlier session that day, Emily said that real progress starts when you put your work online for others to see and comment on which in this case was about Github. Someone from the audience wondered how that works out in larger companies where a manager or even a legal department might not be overly joyous about that to say the least so I asked Emily about her thoughts on that. Recorded live with audience pre-covid-19 at the Conversion Hotel conference in november 2019 on the island of Texel in The Netherlands. (oorspronkelijk gepubliceerd op https://www.cro.cafe/)
