  10. 10. The principles of social psychology<br />Behavioural drivers behind social ecommerce <br />Social Media <br />Tools<br />Social Proof <br />The behavioural rule: Follow the Crowd <br /><ul><li>To resolve uncertainty of what to do and buy we look at what others are doing or have done.
  11. 11. When something stands out as dominant, we instinctively perceive this as social proof; validation </li></ul>Pick Lists such as wish-lists and gift-lists offer social proof about what people want and what is desirable<br />Popularity Lists that allow shoppers to view options by ‘most popular’, ‘most viewed’, ‘most favorite’, ‘most commented’ etc provide social proof as to what’s best to buy<br />Authority <br />The behavioural rule: Follow the Authority<br /><ul><li>People have a natural tendency to defer to the conclusions of an expert or authority, regardless of what they say.
  12. 12. Specialist knowledge, experience and expertise saves us time.</li></ul>Referral Programs stimulate recommendations from people in the know who shoppers trust<br />Social Media Reviews by authoritative professional reviewers (blog reviews, webzine reviews, YouTube reviews), and also by existing customers because we assign authority to voice of experience<br />Scarcity <br />The behavioural rule: Scarce stuff is the good stuff <br /><ul><li>Our minds are hardwired to value scarce resources; we instinctively assign more value to opportunities as they become less available – part out of fear of potential loss (this is known as psychological reactance).</li></ul>Deal Directories that list exclusive time-sensitive shopping deals (often with a count-down clock), from those in the know<br />Social Network Storefronts with great exclusive deals/products for social network members only<br />
  13. 13. The principles of social psychology<br />Behavioural drivers behind social ecommerce <br />Social Media <br />Tools<br />Liking<br />The behavioural rule: Follow those that you like <br /><ul><li>We have a natural inclination to agree with people we like, admire or find attractive.</li></ul>Ask-Your-Network tools for real-time recommendations and opinions from shopper social circles (‘friend sourcing’)<br />Share-With-Your-Network tools that allow shoppers to share shopping experiences/finds with their social circle (affinity network)<br />Consistency<br />The behavioural rule: Be consistent <br /><ul><li>When faced with uncertainty, we opt for the one that is consistent with our beliefs and past behavior.
  14. 14. When our beliefs and behaviors don’t match up, we feel psychological discomfort, a big motivator for trying to be consistent</li></ul>Share-With-Your-Network tools harness the consistency heuristic to drive loyalty and repurchase by creating publicly association between the shopper and purchased products and the e-commerce site<br />Social Media Entertainment uses the small commitment of paying attention to make future purchases more consistent with past behavior<br />Reciprocity<br />The behavioural rule: Scarce stuff is the good stuff <br /><ul><li>We have a natural desire to repay favours, whether those favours were invited or not - we feel good when we reciprocate </li></ul>Group-Buy tools that allow friends to do their friends a favour and get them deals, which get reciprocated with participation<br />Referral Programs that allow friends to offer exclusive access or special deals to their friends stimulate take-up and sales<br />
