Finally put together my @shoutoutso_ page and am beaming.

Going through 150+ unsolicited, public takes on Doing Content Right, was one of the most rewarding experiences as a creator to date.

Since publishing, I've already seen an uptick in conversion!…

I've been using shoutout for my landing page for Zero to Sold, and it has been great. It's just an amazing way of showing how my readers publicly enjoy my work.

This is a great product made by great people.

Social proof is the best proof.

@shoutoutso_ makes it super simple to show you have it.

We use it on our homepage @knowablefyi

Highly recommend. 👇

Super excited to watch this grow and hearing about all the use cases! One of the most versatile tools I've seen in some time 👀

I love this story for many reasons:

🤘 The product is 💯
💵 The price is just right
🙌 It's a perfect founders/prod fit
👥 benefits everyone
🦁 Showing the social proof on our website as a Wall of Love makes us feel very proud

Sharath & Curtis are 🤩

This could be really useful — a p2p social proof/reputation platform has long been missing from the social web.

LinkedIn has it, and there was XFN (among others), but now feels like a good time to give it another shot!

What @5harath is building with @shoutoutso_ is going to change the game of social proof.

This wall of folks raving about Ship 30 for 30 is epic.

Adding another Twitter tool that I love:

I use that to embed the Twitter shoutout wall on my personal about page (

Also useful for embedding customer testimonials on your company site.

Shoutout has launched.

Need a quick-loading wall of love that you can embed on your page for that sweet, sweet social proof? They have you covered.

People don't trust brands as much as they do people they respect or like.

That's why social proof works. We look for it already. We do it already.

@5harath and @curtisjcummings have built @shoutoutso_ to formalise the process and I couldn't be more excited for them.

Shoutout is live the public! 📣

I’ve used this product for awhile and I can’t recommend it enough 👏

Thank you! Appreciate the share! And LOVED using Shoutout to aggregate the tweets. What a beautiful product!

Just got @shoutoutso_ installed in like 5 minutes!

Great product 👌 well done @5harath and @curtisjcummings!

This product will become an iconic, loved, and recognizable component of every serious creator's tech stack -- both for its obvious utility (i.e. it solves a validated problem and helps creators demonstrate their social proof), and because it is dead simple (creators no longer need to dedicate energy/cycles to building their own proof. The product is also great because it is dynamic. As more social proof mounts through daily Twitter activity, the wall of love updates like magic. Impressed by Sharath and Curtis -- their continuous and relentless focus and iteration on this product and in the past! Get this product to number one, and use it!

Neat tool for creating a wall of love quickly @shoutoutso_ from @5harath @curtisjcummings that I just learned about... The importance of peer influence is hard to overstate.

I still remember the “wall of love” on v1 of Gusto that convinced me to become a customer (and invest)!

Social proof is a powerful form of leverage for creators. It creates an audience acquisition flywheel based on credibility and trust.

Congrats 🎉 to @5harath and @curtisjcummings for launching @shoutoutso_ that makes this effortless! Can’t wait to build one for Visual Wisdom!

Social proof is how people buy from nascent brands and creators

@shoutoutso_ is very well timed as we’re entering a Cambrian explosion of creator brands and Internet economy

Super excited for @5harath @curtisjcummings

I’ll blindly write a check on this team and this market
