Collecting customer testimonials is one thing, but what’s the point of having them if you’re not leveraging them publicly to grow your business?

3 Benefits of Sharing Your Customer Testimonials

1. Your client feels the love

As you’re sharing their success and promoting them at the same time, how could your clients not feel like you care about them (because you do, right)?

2. You feel the gratitude 

Because you’re celebrating the positive contribution that you’ve made to somebody else, and reminding yourself of your WHY (remember that?) you win.

You’re also developing an attitude of gratitude (a key practise that many successful entrepreneurs speak of).

3. Your prospects get curious 

Prospects want social proof that what you claim is true, and if they’re in a similar situation they’ll want to learn more about how you helped your last client create the results that they too want in their life or business.

So by sharing your customer testimonials this opens the door for people who want similar help to get curious and engage you.

Also, who doesn’t want to work with somebody who celebrates their client’s successes often?

So how do you showcase your client wins anyway?

By putting them where people can see them of course!
