Social Media, Reviews and Integrations
Every restaurant wants a following and there’s no better way to do that than to use Social Media channels, such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter (X) and Reviews. By integrating these on the website, you’ll encourage your customers to engage with you. Adding Social Media channels via a social wall page or a reusable component at the bottom of each page is an excellent way to add an extra layer of interactivity to your website.
We all know there’s a variety of ways to submit reviews — Tripadvisor, Google, Facebook to name a few — for businesses, particularly for restaurants, cafés and bars, so we’d recommend pulling all of your reviews into one feed. The great news is that you can do this in an instant by following our guide on implementing reviews with Elfsight.
Add Image (and Video) Galleries and Banners
Your content is almost ready, the final piece of the puzzle is your images (and videos). You can add these in a variety of ways with uSkinned, most notably, using the Gallery and Banner components. All you need to do is upload your media to the media section, then add one of these components to any page to add an extra wow factor to your site. Each component comes with a number of settings, including items per row, displaying content in a grid or carousel or even setting that carousel to autoplay.
If you do have video content then Site Builder has a built-in feature to pull content directly from Vimeo and YouTube, so you simply upload your videos to these third-party providers and pull that content into your site with just the video URL. But don’t worry if neither of these providers suits your requirements, we’ve got plenty of quick step guides to add videos from others such as Wistia video.
