Video testimonials combine two of the most powerful forms of marketing. Video marketing is everywhere because it works so well. Testimonials have always been vital for sales, and text testimonials have become vital for local SEO as well.
The trouble is, collecting testimonials can be difficult. Video testimonials doubly so.
So wouldn’t it be great if you could get a very simple, cost-effective way to collect powerful video testimonials from your happy customers?
Well, here it is!
How Do Testimonial Videos Help Small Businesses?
Most businesses and customers rely heavily on testimonials and reviews, because people buy from people they know, like and trust. When they don’t really know you, they look for “trust marks”. Testimonials are among the most powerful of those. Video testimonials are even more powerful.
Even better, online reviews also improve your site’s search engine positioning. So they help to drive traffic to your site, too!
Why Video Testimonials Beat Text Reviews
Video and Text
Text reviews still matter, though. So this system helps you get (free) reviews on other platforms, too!
Almost everyone knows text reviews can be faked. Some review systems make that harder than others, but most people don’t know that. So that limits their value.
A happy customer talking on camera is far more persuasive. That’s partly because it’s more personal, but also because it’s clearly harder to fake.
So why doesn’t everyone use them? Because whilst gathering text reviews isn’t always easy, getting folks to leave testimonials as video reviews normally adds technical obstacles, too.
The Video Testimonial Hurdle
Getting people to go on-camera is now easier than ever. Most have video-capable cameras, and know how to use them. Yet until now, transferring those testimonial videos from customers to your website has been tricky. So walking customers through video file transfer processes can be complex and time consuming. That can be a big waste of time if the results turn out to be unusable.
This system solves those problems.
The Easy Way To Gather Video Testimonials
Wouldn’t it be better to just give happy customers a link and wait for the video testimonials to arrive? That’s how easy this new system is!
You’ll also get a QR code for the link that you can print on posters. So your customers can just scan that with their phones to record a testimonial right after you’ve provided a great service. That’s perfect for restaurants, gyms, vets and many others.
A QR code on a business card can work wonders, too. Just hand it to customers that you visit, or add it into your product packaging for them to see just as they receive their delivery. Catch them just as you’ve “wowed” them to get the best testimonials!
How Does It Work?
It really couldn’t be easier! Get set up in a few clicks, then:
- Give your happy customers the link, or ask them to scan the QR code with their phone.
- Your customer records their testimonial video online, using their phone or webcam.
- Review the your testimonials, download the videos you like and add them to your video channel and/or website.
No struggling to help them transfer the file to you. Just testimonial videos, delivered to a system where you can pick and choose which ones to use.
How easy is that? Imagine how having several video testimonials on your site could boost sales!
