Sharing customer testimonials about their success with your service or product on social media channels are among the most impactful posts.

According to statistics, 92% of people read online reviews and 50% of consumers are more likely to be motivated by an online review than by a discount.

Testimonials as social proof will help you build trust, and credibility, give your customers a sense of the quality you’re offering and help you increase conversions.

That is why using your loyal customers, and their best testimonials in your marketing materials will help you create a notable advantage, bring more prospective customers and increase sales.

Why share customer testimonials on social media?

As we’ve mentioned, sharing testimonials on social media has many benefits.

To give you a better understanding, he’s an elaboration on some of the benefits:

  • Builds trust and credibility – testimonials and any other type of social proof content (including UGCs) are created by a third party – or said simply by your customers. By adding them into your strategy, you’re only mentioning what other people say about your brand – meaning you’re providing them with an independent opinion or being transparent. This will help you establish yourself as a reliable brand and help you connect more profoundly with your potential customers.
  • Showcases the quality of your product/services – these posts are also a great way to showcase your products/services. Additionally, by sharing testimonials on social media, you could highlight specific features and benefits which are superior to your competitors.
  • Help you build a community – sharing feedback from your customers and encouraging them to share their experiences, what they did/how they use your products/services, and how it benefits them will help build a revenue stream and a community.
  • Increase customer retention – sharing reviews, and customer feedback will make those same people feel like your biggest fans and supporters. This will give them an additional sense of being valued and appreciated, which equals higher retention rates. They will also feel like part of the community we previously spoke about.

Now that you’re aware of how important testimonials are, we can only move on to the best tools to help you create these testimonial templates for your social media channels.
