How To Get Your Clients To Do a Video Testimonial

Posted by David Chism | Thu, May 12, 2011

I would have thought it was dif­fi­cult to get a high end home­own­er to be will­ing to do a 30 – 60 sec­ond tes­ti­mo­ni­al for a con­trac­tor, but Bur­nett Paint­ing has proven it to be suc­cess­ful. Here are his secrets.”
First, they must be Rav­ing Fans! At the end I ask them if they would be will­ing to help us? There always inter­est­ed, so I explain that its very hard to get and stay at the top of Google, but with 10 sec­ond videos stat­ing their name, town, and Bur­nett Paint­ing” that will help us as Google tran­scribes all of the You Tube videos and great­ly helps us stay towards the top! And if they would be so kind to men­tion their expe­ri­ence with Bur­nett Paint­ing. Most are all for it. 1 out of 10 just will not do videos. and those in between need to be encouraged!
I used to use my Flip Video as it loaded to our You Tube chan­nel eas­i­ly… then I learned how I can send it direct­ly from my Droid phone!”
Thanks Steve for shar­ing this tip! Take a look at Steve’s web­sites and view some of his cus­tomer tes­ti­mo­ni­als. These are not Hol­ly­wood pro­duc­tions but rather: point, record, upload! That’s it! I think one of the key take­aways is that some cus­tomers need to be encour­aged.” They are your clients. They bought your ser­vice. They like YOU. So ask them to help you grow your busi­ness. As Steve points out, encour­age them, and they’ll do it.
