Use a branded photo of your client (and perhaps a screenshot of the work you did, if they don’t mind).
Blog: Testimonials are great content, but for your blog you want to make sure it appeals to a general audience as well as those who are long-time readers of your blog. Use your client’s testimonial as a starting point and then transition into talking about your services and your process when working with clients. Include a call to action at the end that encourages website visitors to contact you about providing the same service discussed in the testimonial.
