Let’s get started!
Easiest way to get started, if you have Google reviews, is to import them to Trustmary to use them in the widget. Just type in your Google my Business location below to get started:
Go to the Widgets to website section in Trustmary and select or create the widget you want on your Squarespace website.
Once in the widget editor, you can choose the review style you want to use.
After you’ve edited the widget, click “Add to website” and copy the code.
Now the code is copied to your clipboard. We will get back to it in step 3.
Next, go to your Squarespace page editor and click on the Edit button in the corner of the preview page.
Now that you are in the editing mode, find a place on the website that you want the testimonials to appear at. Click on the blue plus icon.
A menu pops up. Click on the Embed button.
Click on the </> -icon on the right side of the embed window.
You see a gray field with the text Add code. Click the field and paste the code you copied earlier during step 1.
Head to the Done button in the upper left corner of the page in editing mode and choose Save from the drop-down menu.
In order to see the testimonials rolling in nicely in the preview mode, you need to click on the blue Enable Scripts in Preview button below the testimonials.
This way you can make sure everything is working and the testimonial slider is running.
Congratulations! Now you have successfully embedded the Trustmary testimonials on your Squarespace website.
What benefits can you expect?
Now, whenever someone gives you another testimonial through Trustmary, it appears automatically on your website and you don’t have to lift a finger.
How easy is that!
The testimonial slider does not take too much space on your website but is able to display many testimonials.
Compared to a more traditional gallery display, which takes up a lot of space and must often be placed on a separate page, the slider is compact and can be placed directly on the landing page. That means that more people are likely to see your testimonials.
Displaying testimonials on your website can lead to increased conversion rate and increased sales.
Testimonials are found to increase buying intent more than 92%, according to G2 Consumer Reviews.
Check out also this case example, which found a 32% increase in sales by using video testimonials on the check-out page.
If you haven’t started using Trustmary already, this is your sign to do so. By adding social proof to your site, you’re giving your visitors the information they are looking for: You’re showing them that you’re a trustworthy operator.
