Testimonials offer a great way for gaining customer trust and getting more conversions. With our latest release, we are pleased to introduced the most highly customizable way to showcase your customer testimonials.
Introducing the Testimonial Carousel widget.
The Testimonial Carousel widget joins the Media Carousel released last week, and allows you to rotate a variety of testimonials in a wide array of designs to choose from.
Since first releasing the single Testimonial widget, we’ve received a lot of user requests to add a testimonial slider. This widget is our answer, and it’s bound to get a lot of our users thrilled. Let’s explore the Testimonial Carousel options.
The Testimonial Carousel comes with 2 skins:
Default. Displays the classic testimonial carousel design.
Bubble. Displays testimonials as bubbles that are connected to the profile image
Testimonials Layout & Alignment
For Each skin, you can choose between one 5 different layouts. The content can also be aligned to the left, center and right, allowing you to set the position just right
Image inline. Image appears next to name
Image stacked. Image appears above name
Image above. Image appears above content
Image left. Image appears left of content
Image right. Image appears right of content
Slides Per View & Width
The carousel slides display is easily customized. You can choose how many slides are shown per view, as well as the width that the slides take on the screen.
These settings can be separately set per device, so you can quickly set up the testimonial slider for desktop, mobile and tablet devices.

Besides letting the visitor browse through the Testimonial Carousel using the arrows and pagination navigation, you can also customize the play and speed of transition for the slides.
The options allow you to set the carousel as:
Autoplay – Have the carousel play automatically, and set the autoplay speed.
Pause on interaction – Have the carousel pause when the visitor clicks on it.
Transition Duration – Set how fast the transition between slides occurs.
Get Testimonials in Elementor Pro
Getting the testimonials right can have a large impact on your conversions and sales. It’s not easy, though.
You need to find the right people, and get them to write the right copy, and finally display it in a way that it integrates beautifully in your sites. For the first two tasks, I recommend you read a recent in-depth analysis of using testimonials, published on BigCommerce. For the design part, take Elementor’s new widget for a spin and experiment with the truly remarkable array of design controls available for the Testimonial Carousel widget.
I look forward to reading your comment about this widget. Please write where you plan to implement it on your site.
