How to Showcase Your LinkedIn Recommendations on Your Website
Your satisfied clients have left astute recommendations on your LinkedIn account; you want to (and rightfully so!) include them on your company website, not hidden behind a LinkedIn gate. Spectoos provides an easy way to turn your LinkedIn recommendations into an attractive and socially-proofed widget that has been shown to increase leads on websites.
Here is a step-by-step explanation of how you can do it:
Click the “Widget” option on the left and then “New Widget” in the top right
Follow the instructions and proceed through the widget to create your Faceboard.
Click “Testimonial” in the menu on the left and then “New Testimonial in the top right.
In another browser window, open LinkedIn and go to your profile.
Find the LinkedIn recommendation you would like to add.
In the Spectoos app, paste all of the information from the LinkedIn testimonial:
- Date of testimonial
- First Name
- Last Name (optional)
- Title (optional)
- Profile Image URL (right click on the image and choose “copy image address”)
- Testimonial Text
- Link to the LinkedIn profile of the person giving the testimonial
Repeat steps 1-8 for all of the LinkedIn recommendations you would like to add
In the left side menu, click “Widgets” and then choose the widget you want to add to your website to get the embed code of the Faceboard
Copy the embed code provided and paste it onto your website
And here is what it will look like when you are all done with that process!
That’s it! Your website will now display your LinkedIn testimonials (just make sure you have the capacity to follow up with all the leads that will start pouring in!).
