If you do any sort of freelancing work, testimonials are a powerful way of marketing your business. Are you making the most of the testimonials you’ve collected?
Thursday Bram recently posted about this on FreelanceSwitch in a post called How to Use Great Testimonials, Once You Get Them. She says:
To discover those effective uses, you’ll have to read the article on FreelanceSwitch. But to whet your appetite, here’s a quick summary.
Thursday points out that the placement of testimonials on your website is important:
She also encourages you not to use “general” testimonials, even if they sound brilliant. Testimonials should speak directly to the specific services or packages you are offering, or they will have little effect. People don’t care how good you are in general. They want to know how good you’ll do the job they want to hire you for.
Finally, Thursday warns about using the same testimonial in multiple places. Potential clients might start wondering if that’s the only good one you have! A variety of testimonials is crucial when showing people how amazing you are.
We’ve just started 2012. You might be thinking of redesigning your site this year. Don’t forget to plan how to incorporate testimonials into its design. Check out Thursday’s post today.
