How to Use Testimonials to Market Your Business

When it comes to marketing for your business, consumers like to feel valued, personally connected and trusting. One of the best techniques for this strategy are customer testimonials.

Testimonials are an effective marketing tool that build trust, are candid and convincing. So how can your business use testimonials? Today we’ll take a look and find out.

Ask for Feedback
The first step in generating effective testimonials for business is asking customers for genuine feedback. Send out standard emails to consumers who buy your products or service and ask them to fill out a short survey with room for comments. Not only can this create useful testimonials to market your business, but it can also show areas to improve.

Keep it Short
When using testimonials in marketing materials, keep quotes short, sweet and to the point. Potential customers don’t want to read a long, drawn-out claim of how great your business is, but they do want something to give a quick synopsis that will stick in their memory.

Be Authentic
Ask testimonial customers permission to include their statements in marketing materials. If possible, include their name, company and year of the testimonial. Show potential customers this is a real person who was truly satisfied with your services. If possible, see if they’re comfortable being contacted, so consumers could ask directly about their experiences.

Give Explanation
Choose marketing testimonials that are as detailed as possible. Comments such as “I love this company!” are nice, but they give little information about what your business actually does or excells at. Utilize testimonials that give specific examples of how the company helped a customer and what bettered in their life. The more explanation, the better.

Vary Users
One testimonial doesn’t carry much weight compared with competitors’ who may have three-four. Aim for as many testimonial options as possible, and publish a significant amount on your marketing materials. Be sure to keep some on the back burner for variation, but put multiple in the spotlight so consumers can see a wide range of positive opinions.

Stay Updated
When using testimonials online with marketing materials, it’s important to keep them updated regularly. Consumers won’t be impressed if they come back to your site various times within a year-long span and continually see the same two or three testimonials. Continuously strive to get new testimonials and update them as regularly as possible to stay fresh and appear current with potential customers.

Marketing a business doesn’t have to be all on your shoulders. Strengthen materials by letting customers speak for you through testimonials. Build trust, personality and credibility through client testimonials singing your praises, and your marketing strategy will thrive.

Welcome to Lithtex Printing!

The art of printing is not in the press. Or fancy die cuts, or bindery, either. Instead, it’s using printing to make business happen. At Lithtex, printing is about more than just ink and paper - it’s about creating business solutions, and getting results.

Lithtex Printing Solutions was founded in 1973 in Beaverton, Oregon by Les Davis. Originally established as a quick-print shop, we quickly became known as a leading local resource for the fast-turnaround printing needs of local businesses.

Over the years our reputation for top-notch work grew, so did the company. As other printers struggled to compete in a changing marketplace, We acquired more equipment, employees and clients, to become among the largest local printing companies.

Lithtex has always been committed to keeping up with the latest printing technology. As the local business climate changed in the late 1990’s, client budgets tightened, demand for return on investment rose, and technology quickly advanced. Foreseeing a change in the printing needs of businesses large and small, Lithtex evolved by adding digital equipment to its extensive offset printing capabilities to support the emerging need for short-run quality printing—thereby establishing itself as the business-solution driven printing company.

In 2001, we expanded operations and built a 50,000 square foot state-of-the-art printing facility. Today, that facility is Lithtex’s headquarters for developing business solutions for its clients.

In 2010 we were rewarded Hillsboro's "Business of the Year" by the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. a recognition that we are extremely proud of.

Today, Lithtex continues to be a recognized leader of solution-oriented printing.
