Imagine that you are a writer, offer a service or sell a product, it doesn’t matter which one it is, one thing is for sure. You would love to receive a letter or an email back from your clients saying that what you offered to them was of great value and more than sure you would be inclined to post that testimonial on your webpage for the visitors to see.
How is this going to help you build Backlinks? It’s quite simple. Start writing testimonials for others. They would gladly show it on their website and to show that the testimonial is real they will post a link to your website for sure.
It’s very easy to write a testimonial, all you have to do is to show the reader in which way the product or service helped you.
Word of mouth has always been an important part of business development. The power of personal experience, shared by real people, is enormous. Asking for testimonials and reviews is an easy way to share proof of your awesome. But, what happens when you’re asked to write one? Are you struck dumb?
Writing testimonials is tough!
If you deal with other organisations, you’re probably being asked for a testimonial or LinkedIn recommendations more frequently. As a business owner you understand the power of this social proof but when you actually sit down to summarise your experience in a few lines, the blank page can be cruel. The secret to writing great testimonials is to cover off a few key points. The following questions will spark the inspiration you need to start writing.
- What was the problem you needed to solve?
- Why did you choose the business you did?
- How did they solve your problem?
- How was their solution unique?
- What did you particularly like about their approach or delivery?
- How would you summarise the experience as a whole?
- Would you recommend the business to others? If so, who?

Now be sure that the website you post on is niche related, Google latest updates are now saying that Quality rules over Quantity. In other words it’s best to have those backlinks on a website that have’s to do with led lights if your website is selling led lights. In the example that I just gave if you post a backlink on a cooking website it could do you more harm than good.
