Do they have 5,000 customers, or 6,000? Perhaps the number is somewhere in between?

Whatever the count, this website doesn't get the [social proof] credit it deserves because the data is static.

Honest Marketers make data-driven claims realistically by making them dynamic.

Dynamic content to consider

It's likely your home page, pricing, and direct response landing pages have some statistics:


  • Number of customers

  • Activity metric, e.g. photos uploaded

  • Average review score

By all means, show off these metrics if you're proud of them.

But make them honest.

Real-time marketing metrics

A little bit of JavaScript can go a long way.

Marketing app Fomo implemented asynchronous requests to their server on a per page load basis to fetch customer review counts, active websites, and even the number of signups in a 24 hour period.

This Open API was made public, and now anyone can make API requests against it to discover KPIs on demand.

Customers deserve the truth

For innovators -- those among us pushing the limits of what's possible -- the least you can do is keep the market informed.

In addition to live metrics from your backend, consider adding a changelog, status page, and publicly available incident reports.

Whether your server went down or the latest physical product launch was recalled, make this information freely available to build trust with prospects.
