Testimonials Pattern with WordPress Blocks

Like most business owners, you work hard to create a website that represents your company well—and that should be a priority.

But what happens when potential customers visit your site? Are they able to learn about your products or services quickly and easily? Or do they need to dig through a lot of text to find the information they’re looking for?

One way to make it easier for visitors to learn about what you have to offer is by using testimonials on your website. The WordPress block editor makes it easy to showcase kind and encouraging words from customers.

In this article, we’ll walk through how to use the Frost testimonial pattern as well as how to create your own from scratch.

How to Use the Frost Testimonial Pattern

The Frost theme for WordPress includes several patterns, and none may be more critical than testimonials. These allow you to establish trust, show success and convert prospects into customers.

  1. In the block editor, click + button, click Browse all, go to the Patterns tab, select General, and choose the testimonials option you prefer.
  2. Customize accordingly: Heading, Paragraph, Color.
