Do you have a bunch of *AMAZING* reviews from your past clients or customers on Google? Wondering if they ever actually get read by your potential clients or customers? Social proof is an essential marketing tool. Let’s not let that compelling testimonial gold go to waste or get lost in an Internet black hole! We have recently discovered a simple and beautiful way to embed Google reviews on your website. Whether you use Showit, Wix, WordPress, Squarespace or Shopify, this post is for you!
You’ll be using a widget-making app called Elfsight to embed Google reviews on your Showit website. Elfsight is a website service that lets you create and embed a huge range of code-free features. It’s free to test and starts at $6/month (depending on your monthly pageviews).
Let’s get started!
Next, you’ll want to play around with all of the customisation settings to make your widget blend as seamlessly as possible into your website. Here are a few tips for editing the look of your widget:
When you have finished “prettifying” your widget inside Elfsight, it’s time to embed it on your website. The instructions below are specifically for Showit. However, if you use another website platform, Elfsight provides step-by-step and video instructions on how to complete this task.
We recommend repeating the above steps to create a separate widget for your mobile website. This time, you’ll set the content width to 270px and make decisions about the layout based on a smaller screen size.
After copying the installation code, you’ll create a new iFrame element inside of Showit and make it visible on mobile only.
And just like that, you have an on-brand, hugely compelling addition to your website! Needless to say, we are huge fans of both Showit and Elfsight, and hopefully, you can see why.
