Testimonial Release Template + Guide


Get the testimonial language you need from clients by walking them through the feedback you need, in a #LegallyLegit way. 


This 2-part Testimonial Guide and Testimonial Release agreement template gives you both a detailed guide of how to design a testimonial form that will get you the best, most persuasive, feedback from your former clients so you can attract your future ideal clients AND an instant-download, fill-in-the-blank Testimonial Release agreement template for you to either send as a contract or include in an e-form.


This Testimonial Release template + guide walks you through how to get the best, most impactful, and persuasive testimonial feedback from your clients and also includes the DIY Testimonial Release template you can use to send to your clients so you have their permission to share their testimonial. This 5-page Guide includes 2 parts:

1 // The Testimonial Guide  

Walks you through…

  • The personal and visual information you need to collect from clients in your testimonial.
  • The exact questions you need to ask to illicit the best responses.
  • Feedback you need to gather from them to help market your services to future clients on social media, through email marketing, and on your website.
  • Ways to use your clients’ feedback to attract your ideal client.

2 // Testimonial Release Template

A DIY fill-in-the-blank testimonial release template is included in the guide. I even included 2 versions: 1 you can use on its own as a testimonial release contract and 1 you could use in an e-form, like Google Forms or TypeForm.


If you’re asking your clients to provide you with a testimonial, you need their permission to use it the way you plan to use it before you start sharing it online. My guide, and testimonial release template, walks you through exactly how to clearly get their consent and understanding before you use their name, photograph, or feedback in your marketing.
