I Like Bike

Don’t you just love all the fake testimonials on shady websites?

“Five stars,” exclaims Pat P of Florida.

“Great service, I’ll be back,” says Ramon M of Downtown, California.

“Mmmm, tastes great,” moans Homer of Springfield.

These fakes stand out like a sore thumb. The good news is that companies who use real testimonials can make a real impression.

On my last visit to Austin, while wandering around on Congress Avenue, I saw an excellent use of testimonials.

The place specializes in selling expensive trips to nowhere on stationary bikes. It’s not something that I would ever buy, yet there I was in the lobby.

They were kind enough to let me take a photograph of their photographs.
