Finding a supplier for your business can be a tricky process at the best of times; so many online businesses rely heavily on customer testimonials. So what do you do if you are a new business, say a new Debt Collection business and you want to impress potential customers? Are you going to be honest about the fact the business is new and try and offer a great service or do you "fake it till you make it"?
Unfortunately for many businesses trying to find a reputable debt recovery partner the latter seems to be the preferred option, with many so called debt collectors recycling or just stealing testimonials from other sources. Now not only is this dishonest and as such contrary to the Advertising Standards Authority rules on misleading statements, it also shows a marked lack of invention and imagination. As such, we've decided to offer a helping hand to all those debt collection companies out there with fake testimonials by providing some suggested "testimonials" of our own.
Remember, if you run an unlicensed dodgy back-room debt collection outfit and you've stolen your current testimonials you can use any of the suggestions below free of charge and without any copyright claims. These are our gift to you and we hope your customers enjoy them more than the recycled rubbish you currently use.
We have arranged the testimonials around popular themes for you convenience, our thanks to the very lovely @ChrisPinto for indulging us and helping form the idea.
