Main Uses for the Spectoos Faceboard Widget

When operating an online business, one of the most important elements to include in your website is reliable customer testimonials. These are even more important when you want to use your website, not only for business promotion, but for networking as well. It is crucial to showcase real testimonials on your website, as opposed to only your marketing content and images, alone.

Spectoos and external reviews

So, what can you do with the Spectoos Faceboard widget? First, you can use it to highlight your most relevant and positive testimonials and reviews from anywhere across the web on your own website.

For example, if you’re running a hotel, you might want to use a few of your Trip Advisor reviews as testimonials.

If you’re an author, you can use Amazon reviews, and if you prefer more professional testimonials, you can import LinkedIn recommendations.

Spectoos and social media

Maybe you don’t have a website, or maybe you do have one but you also know the huge importance of social media. In this case, you can simply present the Faceboard widget on your Facebook page.

Spectoos for your résumé

Usually, when you send resumes to potential employers, they’ll ask you to include references. Simply collect your references from your LinkedIn profile, and import them to your Spectoos account to present in your Faceboard widget.

Spectoos Widget for Resumes

The widget can be embedded in your personal Spectoos webpage, which can be viewed publically.  Then, all you need to do is send the link of your personal Spectoos page, together with your résumé, to your interviewer. Your future boss will be grateful to be saved from the task of making phone calls to investigate more about you – he or she can simply read for themselves.

The A Team

Use the Spectoos Faceboard widget to quickly build a company team page and showcase your employees.

A simple way of doing that is to manually copy your team members’ profiles from LinkedIn. When visitors come to your website, they will not find the regular, old-fashioned list of employee pictures with bios, but a clean and attractive Faceboard. They will also be able to click on each employee’s photo to access their LinkedIn profiles and learn even more about them.

Community Matters

Spectoos is not only for commercial websites looking for clients. It’s a powerful tool that can be used for building a thriving social community, as well.

For example, if you are a science fiction fan who uses his website for promoting events and gatherings, you can use the Faceboard widget to highlight your community members. When interested visitors enter your site, they will see a beautiful display of faces and bios, linking to profiles of real people. Seeing these real people (some of them they might even know), will surely encourage visitors to join your community. This is true for our science fiction example, and it is also relevant for websites looking to increase sign ups, subscribers, and conversions.

As you can see, Spectoos has a wide array of uses that vary from professional to personal.  Check Spectoos out for yourself, and experience first-hand what added value it can bring to your online presence.
