Displaying your brand’s Twitter feed on your website has some benefits and it provides your website visitors with more information about your recent activity.
We can all agree that it is not a necessity if you do not use your Twitter account that often.
But what if the mentions from your followers’ tweets contain compliments, a photo of somebody wearing your product, or just a simple thank you note from a satisfied customer.
Then, displaying your Twitter mentions is becoming something else.
They are becoming actual customer testimonials that for sure you want to have your hands on.
Here is why Twitter mentions of your brand are a great source of customer testimonials:
- Simple, short and direct -thanks to the Tweets’ core format
- Authentic – user profiles are public and can be identified if the testimonial comes from a real person
- Energetic – when a customer goes to Twitter to write you how satisfied they are with your product, that tweet is usually made in a moment of excitement
Once you understand why your company needs to take control of your Twitter reputation, here is how you can use EmbedReviews to collect Twitter mentions and embed them on your website.
