A Complete Guide to Feed Widgets

In this post, we’ll show you how your company can benefit from using Feed widgets.

Social media platforms like Instagram, YouTube and TikTok are more important than ever and have huge potential for your website. Your business’s social feeds are the latest and trendiest way to build trust today. 

Feed widgets allow you to display your social content on your website without the customer having to leave your page.

With Instagram feed widgets, you have the option to showcase Instagram photos on your webpage effortlessly, with a wide range of customization options. 

  1. Videos and images build trust with website visitors,
  2. They increase dwell time on the page (so visitors spend more time browsing through your site),
  3. Thereby reducing bounce rate
  4. And improving SEO. Google will also crawl your site more frequently, which helps your search ranking!

Tailor your Instagram feed widget to match your website, and grab the attention of your users and visitors & keep them on your website for longer than ever before.

    I always get the message ” You have no feed source (platform) yet.” and than ” The access token has expired. In order to continue to update your posts, please reset the access by pressing the resolve button.” I resolve the connection to facebook for instagram and it works until I want to config the feed.
