Why Add Google Reviews to Squarespace

One of the reasons you chose to use Squarespace as your website builder in the first place probably has to do with the ease of use. Personalizing the website to fit your business needs can also be as easy.

Here are the most important reasons why each business should add reviews to Squarespace website – rather sooner than later. 

Social Proof for Potential Customers

Adding reviews to your business site helps you showcase the best parts about your company – without sounding too salesy. After all, all website visitors and especially the ones that are unfamiliar with your brand will google you before trusting you. 

This is all due to the phenomenon called social proof. People copy the actions of others in situations that they are unfamiliar with. Or subconsciously in all purchase related decisions. 

In case you thought social proof is only important for B2C businesses, you are categorically wrong. 61% of B2B buyers who read reviews want to see at least 11-50 reviews.

Embedding Google reviews to your Squarespace website is undoubtedly the fastest and simplest way to convince potential customers.

User Generated Content = Credibility

In addition to providing your brand with social proof, Google reviews are a form of user generated content (UGC). Even though UGC is often only categorized as being social media posts and shares, successfully embedded Google reviews on your Squarespace site have the same key benefits as “traditional” UGC.

UGC is proven to have the following effects:

  1. 60% of customers find new products on Instagram
  2. 66% purchased from a new brand when they saw a social media post made by another consumer
  3. 79% of online shoppers say that user-generated content is highly impactful for their purchase decisions (compared to branded content (12%) and influencer content (9%))
  4. 80% would purchase more likely if the new brand showcased content made by real customers on the website

Just imagine: 80% are more likely to buy from you if you can showcase user-generated content on your Squarespace website. That is because this type of content speaks volumes about your credibility as a business. 

Search Engines Love Google Reviews

As Google is one of the most used search engines globally, it makes sense to optimize your business website according to their standards. This way, you’ll ensure that you:

  1. Can be found in the first place
  2. Increase your rankings with relevant keywords for your business

In the modern world, it is necessary to have claimed your Google Business Profile and to update it regularly to get you showing up on local searches

Why?

Because it will be the first thing that pops up when anyone does a google search on you. They will see the positive reviews, but also other relevant information.

Then to the absolute kicker of why you need to have a Google review widget: Adding Google reviews to your Squarespace site plays a role in getting you to the first page of search results. 

Review Widget for All Reviews?

In case you have reviews on other third-party sites, you will be thrilled to hear that you can easily embed them all with the same review widget.

You can do so much with review widgets. Here are just a few examples of how they can be customized to fit your existing page.

One of our customers implemented this strategy on their website and experienced a 60% increase in contact requests. Their strategy was to add it to very specific service sites, so any new user visiting that part of their site would automatically also see their positive reviews.

On-Page Load Widget

What would be a stronger indication for buying than staying on your website for a long time? Potential buyers tend to browse different sections of your site. 

Keep them on it by setting up a review widget to appear after a certain time period has passed. This also prevents them from leaving your site to look for those reviews.

In-Page Widget

When you have at least four reviews, it is easy to create nice-looking review widgets that can be embedded in all parts of your website. 

Good places to have an in-page Google reviews widget include:

  • Frontpage
  • Product page
  • About us page
  • Check-out page

Forget about having only company logos as your reference – start adding the much-needed relatable content to your website by embedding personalized reviews to your website. 

Furthermore, pay attention to creating a sustainable review marketing strategy to never miss out on the benefits of reviews. In other words, find ways to get more Google reviews regularly not to mention other reviews as well.
