Endorsal, a fantastic tool to collect automated testimonials from your customers, just released their biggest update to date. Say hello to AutoRequests, Contacts and their Public API.
The brand-new AutoRequests feature enables you to generate high-quality testimonials and reviews on autopilot with fully automated email and SMS/text campaigns. It comes with a set of niche based message sequence templates that are optimized for converting and generating reviews. However, can also create your own custom templates using their powerful email and SMS message editors.
Endorsal also introduced a new section called Contacts. Basically, it’s their version of a CRM and allows you to add contacts either manually, via a CSV upload, via their API or upcoming integrations.
AutoRequests uses contact data in its campaigns and all activity is tracked via the CRM.
The API can be used for a number of use cases. Endorsal data can be used to integrate additional functionality into your websites. Endorsal provides endpoints to create, retrieve, update and delete for the following:
- AutoRequest Campaigns
- Wall of Love
One of the best uses of the API is to retrieve testimonial data before rendering a web page. This way it will be part of the page and not added after the page has loaded. This way it will be seen by search engines and helps to boost your SEO with testimonial content.
PS: They are currently working on importing reviews from Yelp, TripAdvisor, and Amazon. Stay tuned!
