Plus, if you display video testimonials on your website, you can also skyrocket your sales.
If you want to embed YouTube videos on your website, you can choose from 2 ways:
- Automated: Use a trusted WordPress plugin to automatically display multiple videos on your website. In just under 5 minutes, you can embed your YouTube videos.
- Manual: Get the YouTube video embed code, video URL, or video IDs of all the videos and then embed their YouTube embed code manually, one by one, and switching between multiple web pages.
