Reviews

Excellent!

Proof Factor is an excellent social proof plugin with many customizations and features. I like how I was able to import my existing and new orders to use in notifications. Also, I can show/hide notifications on specific pages. Cool!

Easy to Use – works well

I'm very happy with this plug-in. It works just as described - I used it on my business blog - I used to get ~10-15 sign ups on my newsletter every week. Now I consistently get 20+. I haven't made any other changes to the site. I'll continue to see if anything changes but given how easy this was... I'm very happy!
