3. Wall Customization Options

This is the most fun feature which customers love. Often times your brand will have it's own style & colors. One-size fits all solution won't work when you're showing social proof. So this is a divergence Famewall has from shoutout.so

We carefully listened to our customers & crafted customization options to change the appearance of the testimonial cards & the background according to the look & feel of the brand.

This has elevated the social proof on websites to a premium level!

4. Support for Video testimonials

While text & social media testimonials feel complete in itself, video testimonials build incredible reputation for your brand as the videos are created by real people.

And there's a psychological aspect which compels people to try & purchase your product after directly seeing & hearing from a person in real world

7. Persistent & Live profile images

A big problem with testimonials on shoutout is that the profile pictures in the live testimonial wall end up breaking when users change their profile picture or when they're using live profile picture on platforms like Twitter.

So you'll have to keep a watch on your wall & keep updating the testimonial cards when the users change the profile picture

Not to mention the low quality of pictures which might give a dull look to your wall. Shown below is a testimonial wall from shoutout.so with the card on the left having low quality resolution with the card on the right facing the dynamic profile picture issue

But Famewall on the other hand handles everything out of the box by making the images persistent on our system while also delivering high-quality profile pictures with crystal clear happy faces

Here's how the issue occurs on

8. Multiple Social Media Platform Integrations

Shoutout primarily focuses on Twitter while it makes you manually enter the testimonials for other social media platforms which becomes a hassle when you want to add testimonials

Famewall has support for multiple social media platforms and the integrations have steadily been growing

We're striving hard to deliver on the vision of making it easy to collect & embed testimonials on your landing page to boost social proof. Try famewall for free at famewall.io
