Embedding your Facebook page feed on your HTML or WordPress website can help increase engagement on your posts and boost traffic to your website. Your Facebook page feed can easily be embedded within a WordPress page, the WordPress widget area, or even an HTML website by using the Elfsight Facebook Feed Widget.
Elfsight provides both a free and premium version of their Facebook feed widget. The free version allows the embedded widget to be viewed only 150 times per month, after which it will not be visible to your visitors until the following month.
There are three tiers to their premium widgets. Each has an increased monthly quota over the previous one and all their premium plans give you the ability to white-label the widget (remove Elfsight branding).
Okay so let’s take a look at their premium plans:
- The Basic plan costs $5 per month and allows the widget to be viewed 5,000 times each month.
- The Pro plan costs $15 per month and allows the widget to be viewed 50,000 times each month.
- Finally, the Enterprise plan costs $25 per month and allows the widget to be viewed 5,000,000 times each month.
I recommend that you select a plan based on the amount of traffic your website receives each month.
