New Feature Announcement: The New Widget

SocialSurvey Newsletter Widget

This month, SocialSurvey is excited about the release of our improved Widget! Our top priority has been listening to our clients’ requests and feedback, as we’ve redesigned our roadmap. One frequently popular request has been to enhance our widget—to allow our users more flexibility in what is displayed on their review page. We hope that the launch of our new JavaScript Widget continues to keep the technical things simple for our users and blends your requests with your user experience.

Reviews are important! And more important than getting reviews is making sure the reviews are visible, reaching as many people as possible and driving traffic to your website. Customer reviews make up about 13 percent of how search engines decide to rank a website in local search results, and our new widget helps you do exactly that.

This widget will continue to display your most recent reviews on your webpage with minimal technical involvement on your side. With this new widget, we are giving you lots of configurations for additional marketing flexibility. For example, you can customize the number of reviews, the primary color for the reviews to be displayed in, choose from a list of available fonts and lots more. Not only that, we will also retain the last 5 configurations you have used for the widget to allow you to make changes without worrying about losing the one you liked but could not decide upon.

The new widget still shows the reviewer’s name, the star rating of the review and whether the reviewer is by a verified customer, a Zillow review or a SocialSurvey review. One cool addition to the new widget is the option for visitors to filter the reviews (by rating or by source).

You can access your widget code when logged into SocialSurvey account by navigating to Configure => JavaScript Widget. We’ve made customizing the new widget to fit the look & feel of your website very easy, just choose the desired configuration in the widget page, click save and your widget code is ready to be copied. As soon as you plug in the new code on to your webpage, the new widget will display the reviews exactly how you saw it on the preview section of the widget page on SocialSurvey. Below is a screenshot of the “look & feel” options for the new widget. The new widget is both mobile and tablet friendly.
