A good way to get testimonials is to send out your Google Maps listing for your business to all of your customers.
There is a place for people to write a review about your company on your Google Maps listing. If you send this link to all your customers asking them to write a review then this will grow your testimonial database plus show more reviews about your company that will show up in the search results if Google is posting local results at the top.
Then you can take the reviews that people have used in your Google Maps listing and incorporate them into your website and marketing materials. People like to see what other people think and so testimonials and reviews are excellent for marketing purposes.
