Recent Sign-up Nudge

A Recent Sign-up Nudge shows recent sign-ups and subscriptions on your website. By showing your visitors your recent sign-ups for your services or subscribing to your newsletter, you trigger a powerful Social Proof effect.

You can show Single Sign-ups or a summary of All Sign-ups.

Connect data sources

To display recent sign-ups, Nudgify needs to collect live data. Therefore, you need to connect a data source in order to use this Nudge. You can choose to collect data from:

You need to choose and configure a data source before you can add a Recent Sign-up Nudge. Until you do, the Continue button is disabled.

In your Conversion Data Feed, you can view and manage the sign-ups that are being collected from the data source you choose.

Single sign-ups

A Recent Sign-up Nudge for single sign-ups shows each individual activity with the name and location of the person. The Nudge also displays an image with a map of the location of the person, or, if the location is not available, a pawn-icon.social proof single sign-up

Choose an activity description

You can choose how to describe the activity on the Nudge, for example ‘downloaded our app’ or ‘subscribed to our newsletter’ or ‘signed up for a plan’.

Only show recent sign-ups

The “Show sign-ups from…” option lets you decide how recent the sign-ups must be to show in a Nudge. You can choose to show sign-ups made in the last day, 2 days, 3 days, week etc. In the top right corner of the Nudge, it displays how long ago the person has signed up.

Hide the time for sign-ups older than…

The Nudge displays how long ago someone signed up. The more recent the sign-up, the stronger the Social Proof effect. It’s not always beneficial to display the time of older sign-ups. You can choose to hide the time when sign-ups are older than e.g. 1 hour, 1 day, 1 week etc. This way, you can make sure that the time only displays on Nudges for recent sign-ups.

Select the number of sign-ups you want to show

You can show up to your 10 most recent sign-ups. If you choose to show multiple sign-ups, they will show up one after the other.

Randomly rotate your sign-ups

If you choose to show multiple sign-ups, you might want to randomly rotate them. This way, your visitors won’t always see the same sign-up first when they browse your pages. Just tick the check box to randomly rotate them.

Skip seen sign-ups

If you turn the Skip seen sign-ups option on, we skip already seen sign-ups for the rest of the session. This way, you make sure you don’t show the same sign-up to the same visitor twice. Find out more about the option to skip seen Social Proof.

Show full details or make it anonymous

You can also choose in how much detail you wish to show the name and location of the person who performed the recent activity. By default, the Nudge displays:

  • a map of the location of the person (or, if the location is not available, a pawn icon)
  • first name + initial (e.g. John D.)
  • the city and country (e.g. Berlin, Germany)

From the Plus Plan onwards, you can change the default settings (go to Nudge Settings > Message) to make your Social Proof Nudges more anonymous.

social proof settings

If any of the information is not available, the Nudge will fall back on another option.

  • For the image, a pawn-icon will show if the map is unavailable.
  • If the name is unavailable, the Nudge will fall back to the anonymous option and display ‘someone’.
  • In case the location in unavailable, no location will be displayed.

All sign-ups

Recent Sign-up Nudges that show all sign-ups, show a count of all the people who signed up recently to create a powerful to Social proof effect.

Choose a time frame

You can choose to show sign-ups from all time or hide sign-ups older than e.g. 1 week.The Nudge shows the maximum number of sign-ups within the time frame you set.

sign-ups time frame

For example, you select that you want to hide sign-ups older than 12 hours. 5 people signed up in the last 6 hours, but 17 people in the last 10 hours. Between 10 and 12 hours ago, no one signed up. In this case, we will show the maximum amount of sign-ups, 17, in the smallest time frame, 10 hours. The Nudge will say ’17 people signed up in the last 10 hours’.

Set a minimum and maximum

You can choose the minimum and maximum number of sign-ups required for the Nudge to show.

sign-ups minimum and maximum

Do you not want to show the Nudge if there are less than 5 recent sign-ups to display? Set the minimum to 5. This way, when less than 5 people signed up in the time frame you chose (e.g. 24 hours), the Nudge will not show.

What if the Nudge does not show?

  • You don’t have any new sign-ups since you added the Nudge
    Note that Nudgify does not collect historical data to display the Recent Sign-up Nudge. Data collection starts from the moment you install Nudgify. This means that the Nudge might not show up and create Social Proof at first if you haven’t had any new sign-ups on your website since you installed the app.
  • You don’t have enough sign-ups
    If the Recent Sign-up Nudge for all visitors does not show up, check the minimum and time frame you set. When the amount of activities within the set time frame is less than the minimum you chose, the Nudge won’t show.
  • Check you Conversion Data Feed
    If your Nudges do not show, it could be that your integration is not working correctly. You can check this by looking at your Conversion Data Feed. Your Data Feed shows all the new sign-ups that are sent to Nudgify via your integration(s). If no sign-ups come through in the data feed, your integration is not working.  In this case we advise you to double check your setup.
