A Facebook business page is essential for any brand or business. These pages allow your customers to leave reviews and recommendations which in turn helps build your brand’s confidence and credibility. Additionally, you can showcase these Facebook reviews on your brand’s website to instantly build trust and provide social proof for your products or services.
Facebook reviews can be embedded on a website using the Elfsight Facebook reviews widget. With this widget, you can embed your Facebook reviews within a WordPress page, a WordPress post, the WordPress widget area, or even an HTML website.
Elfsigh provides both a free and a premium version of its Facebook reviews widget. The free version gives you access to all the features of the widget, however, it is limited by the number of times that the widget can be viewed on your website each month, which is only 200 views per month.
On the premium side of things, there are three paid tiers each with an increased monthly quota and the ability to white-label the widget (remove the Elfsight branding).
- The basic plan costs $5 per month and offers 5,000 views per month
- The pro plan costs $10 per month offers 50,000 views per month
- The enterprise plan costs $25 per month offers 5,000,000 views per month
I recommend that you select a plan based on the number of visitors your website receives each month.
