Testimonials are very important to use to attract potential customers. Never hesitate to ask for testimonials from your customers. You can share your buyer testimonials to social media. If the testimonials provided by the buyer are not good enough, at least it also helps you to continue to evaluate, improve the product, and make innovations.
If you’ve just gone into business, you probably don’t have any testimonials about your product yet. You can do a Q&A with someone about your product. The opinions spoken are what can later be used as testimonials.
Testimonials have their own selling point for promotions. With testimonials, someone becomes more confident to buy your product or service.
