Israeli startup VocalReferences, which offers an app that helps businesses share customer testimonials on their websites in both audio and video, is now available through the popular DIY website building company, Jimdo.
Based in Raanana, VocalReferences calls itself the ultimate tool to capture, display and share video and audio testimonials. It allows businesses to display their testimonials exactly where they have the greatest impact; on landing and checkout pages, proposals and their home pages.
The company asserts that video testimonials have been proven to be more effective in converting traffic than plain text and that they are the only product that make it easy to use video.

Jimdo’s slogan of ‘Pages to the People’ fits perfectly with our company’s goal to offer the simplest and most effective way to harness the value of a business’s happy customers through video testimonials to increase onlines sales, generate new leads and proactively manage a company’s online reputation” says David Barth, co-founder of VocalReferences. “At the same time, we are joining such well known brands such as Google, Linkedin, Dropbox and Yelp.”
“I’ve been preaching using customer testimonials as the best form of advertising for decades. VocalReferences takes that to the next level with video, the most powerful form of communication. Jimdo is pleased to add them as a trusted partner for our 12 million users” says Stephen Belomy, Jimdo’s U.S. CEO.
