Be creative in your testimonial and honest. Word your comments in such a way, without being too obvious, as to motivate any readers to visit your site.

Remember your own credibility is at stake here - associate your self with sites you want to be associated with!

For example, here's a testimonial I might write to a company offering internet marketing services:
