How to effectively use testimonials

One of the most important tasks of your website is to educate potential customers of your product and/or service. Using effective testimonials is an important step in this process and highlighting the right testimonials is of the utmost importance.

Did you know that 90% of people trust testimonials from people they know, and that 70% of people trust testimonials of strangers posted online? (Neilsen, 2009)

  • Testimonials build trust. Nothing is more trustworthy than seeing a real person talking highly of your product or service
  • Testimonials can answer important questions
  • Testimonials overcome buyer skepticism by showing how your product has helped others
  • A testimonial can substantiate claims that you have made on your website
  • By including a first name, last name and company name in the testimonial, you are showing that your testimonials are coming from real people


  • Settings page of Super Testimonials. Select your image style, layout, theme and much more.
  • Options page
  • Super Testimonials example
  • Super Testimonials example
  • Available testimonial shortcodes

How do I create a testimonial widget?

Showing your testimonials within a widget is easy. Simply copy and paste the shortcode of the testimonial into a text widget and press “Save”. Your testimonial widget should appear on your website. Keep in mind that you should rather select an individual testimonial shortcode for a widget instead of the shortcode that dispays all the testimonials.

DON’T PAY FOR THE PRO ADD-ON (Sola Testimonials). The plugin integration with pro is broken, and I’ve gotten no response to my request for help a week ago. I’ve paid for the pro, and it’s pretty much useless now. I’m on the hunt for a new plugin. It *was* a nice plugin. I got a whole 3 years of use out of it before it was abandoned. As far as I can tell, the free version still works, but what’s the point when I paid for more?

I was looking to change the links on the plug in from Nofollow to follow and the assistance I received from Dylan was nothing sort of top class. Very happy with our new testimonials page thanks to this plug in and assistance. Highly recommended.

I have scoured the internet looking for the perfect testimonials plugin for WordPress that did what I needed it to. Apparently this was hard to accomplish! Luckily I found Sola Testimonials and it’s been 100% worth it since! Thank you!

I wanted to keep my desktop website testimonials page in 3 columns for the look but just 1 column on mobile for mobile friendliness, and Sola support helped me with it. This plugin is really user-friendly, no complaints from me. [I purchased the pro version which had advanced features I wanted to use]
