Encourage users to give testimonials



Business Benefits

Influence purchasing decisions by encouraging customers to leave quality reviews and recommendations.

Send an email to customers asking for a simple one-click feedback answer.

For example:

  • “Would you refer us to a friend?” For example, “Did you enjoy your stay?”
  • “In your own words, how would you describe our [strongest attribute]?"
  • “What obstacle would have prevented you from buying our product?”
  • “What did you find as a result of buying the product?”
  • “What feature did you like most about the product?”

Redirect customers who clicked on an answer to a webpage asking open-ended questions to encourage full testimonials. You could use simple tools like Google Forms.

Use contests and incentives to get customer feedback, testimonials, and reviews.
