Why Show Social Media Feeds on Your Site?
If you want to boost your site’s engagement, an easy solution is to show relevant posts from social media.
Just like that, you can have interesting posts, photos, gifs, videos, livestreams, and more to grab people’s attention.
Plus, search engines like Google love fresh content, so having regularly updated feeds can be great for your site’s SEO.
And better SEO means you can rank higher in search engine results and reach even more potential customers.
Want more ways to boost your conversions? You can also embed user-generated content (UGC) and social proof from social media to promote your products.
As a bonus, posting your own content means you can convert your site traffic into social media followers and subscribers. It’s a great way to boost your social media marketing and grow your business.
Now that you know how social media feeds can help your business, let’s get started with our tutorial.
How to Create Social Media Feeds for WordPress
Before you can combine your feeds, the first step is to create the social media feeds.
To do that, there are 2 options that you can use:
- Manual Option: Generate embed codes for the social media posts yourself and insert them into your website
- Easy Option: Use a WordPress plugin to automatically fetch the social media posts and embed them on your website.
With the first option, creating social media feeds can end up being time-consuming as well as complicated. After all, you’re dealing with all those embed codes yourself.
To connect your site with some social media channels, you might need access to the API, which can end up being costly.
Plus, you’ll need to use coding or hire a designer if you want to change the design of your social feeds. And in case anything goes wrong, you won’t have a customer support team to lend you a hand either.
The good news?
