Stop "Lying" - Post Reviews That are Taken Seriously

I am a member of a local entrepreneurial group which meets once a week and discusses various items which matter to business owners. The topic of testimonials came up during our last meeting and a few members in the group stated that testimonials are unreliable and so easily faked that they’re not worth putting on your site.

My thought is that testimonials can be good if presented properly. Putting testimonials on your site can make skeptical clients question whether the testimonial is legitimate. A good option is to have your clients place their testimonials on an external site which isn’t related to your company. I’m talking about business review sites such as They allow anyone to leave reviews of their experiences with your company. They are also and excellent place for you to ask your clients to leave a positive review, this gives your clients testimonial a huge boost in legitimacy because it is then something that you haven’t posted.

Having said all this here is a review I recieved from one of our clients this week. I took an image of the email and posted it on facebook. I think this is a fun way to post a testimonial which gives it a fair amount of legitimacy.

What are some other fun ways to post testimonials that don’t leave potential clients questioning whether you’re really that good.

So, you think that you are an expert when it comes to the world of fitness, eh? You know how to work out effectively for your body? That's great, but you are far from done learning everything you need, on order to improve. Try looking at the tips below to find more to work on with your routine. The best fitness tip for building up your arms is to work opposite muscles in opposite sets of each other. The best example would be to work the triceps and then the biceps. Each has the opportunity to rest while the other is being worked. This minimizes your time and maximizes your workout. Increase the effectiveness of your walking workout. Bend your elbows at a 90 degree angle and pump your arms with every step you take. This encourages you to walk faster, increases your heart rate, and can burn 15% more calories than if you keep your arms by your side. Try to walk for at least 30 minutes a day, and you will see the results in no time. To get the most out of your cardio workout, try interval training. Go as fast as you can for two minutes, and then rest for a minute. By moving your heart rate up and down like this, your workout is maximized, which means those calories are getting burned quicker than ever. There is no need to fear. Also try biking for a fitness alternative. Biking is a fun, inexpensive alternative for your daily commute that still focuses on fitness. Biking to work is a great form of exercise since you will be getting exercise in the morning and evening on your way to and from work. While you may be a decent fitness enthusiast, it takes time and practice to become a great fitness enthusiast. You should know that you are never done learning about the activity or what you can do to better your skills. With the previous tips in mind, you are well on your way to becoming a great fitness enthusiast.
