As we all know, it’s easy for marketers to brag about how great their product or service is. Writing compelling copy, shooting enticing photos, or even producing glamorous videos are all tactics we use to draw attention to our brands. While all of these strategies can be successful, there really is no better way to gain trust and prove the validity of your brand like customer testimonials.
Testimonials take the spotlight away from the seller, and shine it on the customer. Your customer was once in the shopper’s shoes, debating what product to choose, comparing prices, reading marketing message after marketing message. Once the potential new buyer hears from someone they can actually relate to—someone who isn’t being paid to say these wonderful things—then their trust deepens, and their chances of purchasing rises.
For these reasons, it is absolutely critical for businesses to display customer testimonials on their websites. There are many ways you can use testimonials—for example, on landing pages and in emails—but there’s no better way to feature client quotes than on your very own beautiful customer testimonial page.
