Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating testimonials, part of WordPress: Building a One-Page Style Site.
…Testimonials from satisfied customers is a great way of promoting your business.…And adding them on the front page is a great way of getting new and prospective…customers to see that others like them have used a service before and liked it.…Therefore, I like to add testimonials right at the top of the page for…most business pages.…And what I do here is I create a long list of testimonials from many different…clients, and then I just select three random ones to display on the front page.…That way, any time someone visits a site,…they'll get a random selection of testimonials to see.…
And if they reload the page, they'll get a new set of testimonials.…I also wanted to be set up so…that if I want to, I can add additional information to each testimonial later.…So that you can go and visit just that testimonial and…get a full list of everything that that customer has to see.…But on the front page, I want to simply display an image, a head shot,…the name of the person who left the testimonial, and a short testimonial.…
