Why Should You Embed a Social Feed in 2023?
Social feeds embedded on websites are still a thing in 2023. Why? Because it makes your website look better. It helps people discover more of your content. It is a form of social validation. No one wants to do business with an unknown.
Extend the question by asking the opposite: would you go to a restaurant that didn’t have Instagram? Would you choose a SaaS product that didn’t have an X (Twitter) account? Would you trust a Realtor who wasn’t on Facebook? How about a business coach who didn’t have any YouTube Videos?
If the answer is no, then you have your answer. Social media is powerful because we do business with people like us – not just those we “know, like, and trust.” We want people to understand us. We want a service to solve our business problem. We want a waffle that is both crispy and soft. It’s not too much to ask, right?
You embed your social feed to remind users of your brand. When users see your feed on your website, they’re reminded that they’ve seen your logo, color palette, and verbiage elsewhere. This also extends the life of your marketing campaigns. If it sounds like a win-win, it’s because it is a win-win.
“So, if you want your carefully crafted marketing strategies to succeed, ensure you embed social media content on relevant web pages.” WAcademy
So, the better question is, how will you embed a social feed in 2023? And honestly, we’re wondering why Feed Them Social isn’t part of your basic stack yet.
