Advertising funds make up a huge amount of the budget for most companies. Without advertising, the word does not get out and the customers will not come. Business depends on good advertising. Good advertising is only as good as the product or company and the word of mouth from customers. If customer testimonials are positive, that is advertising that is far beyond the television or radio ads or glossy flyers plastered all around. Testimonials from customers show that someone is truly and honestly happy with the company’s services or products. Consumers like to hear from customers.
Testimonials really go a long way in furthering business when they are publicized via the Internet. In this day and age of prolific technology growth and the Internet use, many customers consult the web before they buy a product or acquire services from a company. Finding positive testimonials listed online on a company website or review site or blog is big deal to consumers. Testimonials mean other consumers like them have tried the product or service and have found it to be a good thing. This carries a lot of weight, when peers and contemporaries have good things to say about something.
