Or you can click here and skip directly to the tutorial.
Why Embed Facebook Reviews on Website?
Did you know that 93% of customers check reviews before buying something online?
As you can see, positive reviews play a huge role in converting people into customers. And if you embed positive reviews of your products, they convince website visitors to buy from you.
While there are lots of review platforms like Yelp and Google reviews, Facebook is still the biggest social platform out there and a fantastic source for customer reviews.
Plus, showing reviews can encourage your website visitors to leave more Facebook reviews. So, you can get more user-generated content and boost trust in your visitors with ease.
It’s a great advantage you get with WordPress, when compared to other website builders like Wix, Shopify, or Squarespace.
At the same time, you can even get new followers and grow your Facebook presence.
With that, let’s look at the different ways you can embed Facebook reviews on your site.
Easiest Way to Embed Your Facebook Reviews
Want to embed your Facebook reviews in WordPress? Choose from the 2 options below:
- Manual embed: Spend lots of time copying and pasting HTML embed codes for all Facebook reviews
