What is it and how did you arrive at this particular set of questions?When and where in the structured communication of leading a prospect through the conversion funnel are testimonials best placed?What makes a testimonial unbelievable? Are there mistakes made in organizing testimonials that we should avoid?Testimonials are one form of social proof, what are others?Are there different kinds (including audio,video, written), categories, styles of testimonials and if so, what kind?

Do you agree or not and why?Where on a web page do testimonials perform most effectively? Have you done eye tracking or mouse tracking (ClickTales) research on the effective placement of testimonials?Is there a way to use testimonials in auto-responders that results in higher conversions to sale of prospects?Testimonials, as social proof, are one form of trust.
