Testimonials Are Crucial to Your Success

Social Proof is one of six principles of Influence. People are particularly susceptible to it when they’re feeling uncertain about a company or brand. When a potential customer lands on your site, how will they feel about your brand? Most website visitors don’t immediately trust a new brand. Hence the power of a great testimonial.

Good Looking Testimonials equal Good Looking Sales Reports.
Sorry, but it’s true! Having a positive testimonial that looks ugly or out of date can end up resulting in a net gain of zero! This is why we’ve worked hard to give you the ability to create beautiful testimonials in an instant.

A beautifully written and attractive looking testimonial from past happy customers reassures the potential customer that purchasing from your company is the right decision to make.

  1. Install either via the WordPress.org plugin directory, or by uploading the files to your server.
  2. Activeer de plugin via het ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to the Testimonials menu of your WordPress Administration area and add new testimonials
  4. Go to the Designs menu under Testimonial and customize the look of your testimonial(s). When finished, give the design a name and click Save Design button below the preview.
  5. In a page or post, insert a Handsome Testimonial block (with Gutenberg) and select your Saved Design from the dropdown. If using the Classic WordPress editor, click the Insert Testimonial button above, then select the Saved Design.


How do I change the displayed image size of the testimonial?

Go to Designs, Retrieve your Saved Design (bottom right), then go to Advanced Options on the left and change the setting: “Image Size” to an option that you prefer, or select “Specify(advanced)” to specify a specific size in pixels.

What if there’s something about how my testimonial that I want to change that’s beyond the settings provided?

Perhaps you want to make the text of your testimonial italic or bold or you want to change the margins of your testimonial. Simply find the specific CSS id tag of the testimonial on your page you wish to make changes to and add these CSS changes to Custom CSS box under General Settings. The easiest way to find the specific css id selector for the testimonial you want to change is by using the “developer” function of your browser or a browser extension such as Firebug.

Can't use standard built-in color palette The Style Designer has settings in a single narrow column, so you have to scroll down a lot to update the settings, then scroll back up to see the preview Therefore, this is simply very difficult to fine-tune. Can work well for those who just want to use the default style.

I've been searching for an awesome testimonial plugin for ages and came across Handsome apps by pure luck. The free version of the testimonial plugin is very easy to use and works very well with my theme version even though it isn't tested with this version. About to upgrade to the pro version.
