Inspirational Video Testimonials
80% of marketers confirmed that video helped increase sales. That’s why displaying video testimonials on your brand’s website is a powerful way to boost customer conversions. Here are great testimonial page examples using the power of video marketing:
Business and accounting software Xero effectively displayed video testimonials under their “Why Xero” menu. Instead of the company showing off a generic sales copy, they chose to let their customers’ stories do the talking for them.
Video marketing in itself is already effective enough. Xero made it more convincing by including the industry of each customer they served.
This way, prospects in similar industries will have an easier time relating to the stories. The result? They’re more likely to try out Xero’s services. Why? 61% of people find information from “a person like me” to be super trustworthy.
Coding seems like an overwhelming topic for Internet newbies. That’s why in Codecademy’s testimonial page, they didn’t talk about confusing coding jargon or complicated programming processes.
Instead, their customer testimonials focused on how Codecademy helped improve the lives of their customers. There is a name and a talking person with a life story behind the testimonials — that’s what made them more influential.
Bonus point: Codecademy also answered a common customer objection, fear of starting, in their video testimonials.
3. Yum Yum Videos
Video production company Yum Yum Videos knew what they were doing when they shot their video testimonials, too. They added a cinematic filter to the thumbnails of their videos to give off the impression of a high-quality film — it’s the same kind of filter that’s popular in today’s movie landscape.
To add more conviction, Yum Yum Videos took advantage of the authority in social proof.
Just check out the official company positions placed next to the names of their customers. This makes the site visitors think, “If top experts in the industry are using them, then they must be good at what they do?”
When it comes to living in the local’s houses when you travel, Airbnb is one of those companies that comes to mind.
Their branding, “belonging anywhere”, is about living in a place that you’d like to call home. Even during traveling. It’s why Airbnb decided to film their video testimonials in the actual homes of their customers.
Kudos to them for also showing off their customers’ smiles in their video thumbnails. What better way to send the message of “belonging” than enjoying your time inside your warm and cozy home, right?
How to Use Video Testimonial on Your Website:
You’ve seen different types of effective video testimonial examples. Most of them have a simple but powerful layout. This layout highlights customer video testimonials in an interactive feed that your site visitors can watch — without leaving your site.

Quote Testimonials from Happy Customers
As the name suggests, quote testimonials pull a quote directly from a customer’s review about a product or service. Since 92% of shoppers read online reviews before buying, they’re an effective way to increase your sales. Here are a few testimonial page examples using quote testimonials:
Social media management platform Hootsuite successfully captures the attention of its site visitors by using quote testimonials — with pictures, positions and full names of their customers.
In their testimonial page, they even included the company logos of their corporate customers. The stronger their customer’s brand’s presence is, the more convincing their testimonials are. That’s why Hootsuite made sure to display high-profile testimonials from different brands known worldwide.
A self-promotion and social networking platform for digital designers, Dribbble’s testimonial page is refreshing and functional. Did they place “Testimonials” as its heading? No, Dribbble chose to go with “Community Love”, which appeals to their target market: creative professionals and digital designers.
Plus, their testimonials are from both corporate and individual customers, so site visitors can rest easy knowing that Dribbble is fully capable of serving both types of customers.
Lead generation software powerhouse OptinMonster cleverly uses quote testimonials on their page by using the heading, “See What Others Are Saying”. This adds a conversational tone to the testimonials page, so the site visitors feel like they’re just reading a friend’s review of the company.
Plus, their testimonial page design is sleek and minimalistic. It’s easily skimmable so you’re more inclined to browse, stay longer and read the testimonials.
Lastly, they made sure to include the customer’s full name, position, company and picture — all factors using the power of authentic social proof to encourage more sales.
If you’re in the travel industry, you can get inspiration for your own testimonial page design by looking at Kintripper’s reviews feed. Sure, their header image is eye-catching, but that’s not all. It’s their engaging Facebook reviews feed that boosts their testimonial page’s convincing power.
Instead of displaying a screenshot of their reviews, Kintripper made their testimonials page more credible by displaying their actual Facebook reviews on their website.
People are more likely to believe embedded Facebook reviews. They’re also easier to trust. Why? It’s because the testimonials aren’t just from random names in the Internet. When you embed your Facebook reviews on your website, there’s a name, a picture and a Facebook profile that publicly vouches for your brand.
How to Display Quote Testimonials on WordPress:
In today’s world where Facebook is still the most influential social media platform, posting your Facebook reviews on your website can get you ahead of the game.
After all, you did your best in getting Facebook reviews from your customers. So it’s only natural to proudly display them in your testimonial page, right?
Want to easily embed Facebook reviews on your WordPress? Just install the Custom Facebook Feed Pro plugin and let it do all the work for you.
Even without any technical knowledge, Custom Facebook Feed Pro helps you display your Facebook reviews feed in just under 5 minutes! Here’s an example of a Facebook reviews feed we created using the plugin:

User-Generated Content from Hashtags
The great thing about user-generated content (UGC) is that your customers’ visual posts do all the talking for you.
These photos of your real customers actually using your products can be highly convincing. They add authenticity to your brand. And with 86% of consumers saying that authenticity is important to them, authenticity helps you sell more. Here are some testimonial page examples you can copy:
Personal care brand is no newbie when it comes to to showing off UGC in their marketing campaigns. In their latest project, #ShowUs, Dove encouraged their customers to show — not tell — their actual experiences in using Dove products in their daily lives.
Dove’s testimonials appeal to their target audience because they’re showing different kinds of beauty. In addition to its authenticity, Dove also made use of the “community” factor in social proof: the more their audience sees UGC, the more likely they are to try out the products for themselves.
10. Fenty Beauty
Another brand that perfectly executes UGC in their marketing is Fenty Beauty by Rihanna. In their homepage, they also encouraged their customers to upload their own photos and videos of Fenty Beauty products.
What made their testimonial page more convincing? It’s the “Upload” button that’s cleverly located within the Instagram feed. Since it’s easy to upload your own media, there’s less friction, so more people are likely to do it. It’s also a great way to encourage more sales. 79% of shoppers believe that UGC highly influences their buying choices, after all.
11. Puffin Packaging
UGC marketing isn’t limited to only personal care and beauty products. Puffin Packaging, an eco-friendly packaging solution, effectively used it in their testimonials page as well.
Instead of showing a feed of the company’s Instagram posts, they displayed a feed of their customers posting about their product. And since their testimonial feed was embedded in their homepage’s footer area, their site visitors can immediately see it when they check out their website.
Because UGC is seen as more genuine and inviting, this type of testimonial is effective in convincing prospects to do business with you. Of course, the pet pictures didn’t hurt, either!
Sportswear subscription retailer Fabletics is another advocate of using UGC marketing in their testimonials page. Fabletics makes it easier for their users to submit their photos. They can manually upload it, or add #MyFabletics on their own Instagram posts. As a result, it’s easier for the company to generate authentic social proof.
Not yet convinced? Data shows that when UGC is placed on a site, there’s a 90% increase in time spent browsing your website. That’s why UGC is powerful in skyrocketing your sales.

Testimonial Tweets from Happy Customers
According to a study from Microsoft, the average human now has an 8-second attention span.
The best way to capture your audience’s attention and effectively hold it? Display short but straightforward testimonials in the form of tweets. Here are a few examples you can copy for your own brand:
As the best WordPress Coming Soon Page plugin, SeedProd‘s testimonial page is sleek and functional. SeedProd leverages Twitter to collect testimonials from their happy customers, so the testimonials are bite-sized in structure, but huge in impact. Of course, to make the tweets more credible, SeedProd also included the customer’s name, position and company.
In addition to SeedProd’s list of customers who publicly praised their brand in social media, what made their testimonial page more effective is the footer area. After showing their trustworthy testimonials to their visitors, they added a call-to-action banner to try their plugin. This way, site visitors can easily sign up to experience the best Coming Soon Page plugin themselves.
Another company that cleverly uses tweets in their testimonial page is Bizzabo. As an event platform, Bizzabo recognizes their customers’ struggle in capturing their audience’s attention. That’s why they used the heading, “You are the center of our Universe” with a cute doodle of an astronaut beside it.
To add the power of social proof in their testimonials, Bizzabo also included tweets in their testimonial page. The sources seemed more credible as well because the testimonials came from actual people with real Twitter accounts.
How to Embed Twitter Testimonials on Your Website
Instead of posting a screenshot of tweets that praise your brand, why not embed the actual tweets on your website?
By displaying your Twitter feed with the real tweets, you can even boost the credibility of your sources. After all, their names and avatars are displayed together with their tweets. Plus, if your site visitors wanted to verify the testimonials, they can simply click on the usernames to check the user’s account.
We replicated SeedProd’s testimonial page example using the Custom Twitter Feeds Pro plugin. After installing the plugin, we just searched for the tweets with the term “seedprod” and included them in our feed. Using the masonry layout type, we were able to create a beautiful and interactive Twitter feed like this:

Combining Video, Photo and Text Testimonials
Finally, one of the best ways to show social proof and skyrocket your sales is by showing a combination of different testimonial types in your page. This is exactly what Zoom did.
Displaying one testimonial type –video, text or photo– can help boost your sales. So imagine how much more powerful it would be if you showed more than one testimonial type in your page?
Zoom cleverly combines videos, photos and quotes in their testimonials page. Potential customers can choose to watch videos, read quotes or case studies of how Zoom helped improve their customers’ businesses.
As a result, their layout is visually appealing to their audience. Plus, they’re also giving their site visitors different choices when it comes to digesting information. After all, different people learn differently.
