Benefits of Embedded Testimonials 

Congratulations! Now you have successfully embedded the Trustmary testimonials on your Squarespace website. 

What benefits can you expect?

Benefit 1: Save Time and Effort

Now, whenever someone gives you another testimonial through Trustmary, it appears automatically on your website and you don’t have to lift a finger. 

How easy is that!

Benefit 2: More Visibility for Testimonials

The testimonial slider does not take too much space on your website but is able to display many testimonials. 

Compared to a more traditional gallery display, which takes up a lot of space and must often be placed on a separate page, the slider is compact and can be placed directly on the landing page. That means that more people are likely to see your testimonials.

Benefit 3: More Conversions and Sales

Displaying testimonials on your website can lead to increased conversion rate and increased sales. 

Testimonials are found to increase buying intent more than 92%, according to G2 Consumer Reviews.

Check out also this case example, which found a 32% increase in sales by using video testimonials on the check-out page.
