Posted by | Cool Software, Marketing Advice | No Comments

I think the days of using standard, template emails to get reviews from clients are just about over. I say “just about” because I know some of you are using this approach with success, but that success is moderate at best. 

In today’s world, most consumers are totally comfortable with hundreds (or even thousands) of emails piled up in their inboxes, and your email asking for a review is just going to disappear in the heap. 80% of the time, it will never be seen or responded to.

How To Get Your Clients To Do a Video Testimonial

Posted by | Guest Post, Marketing Advice | 3 Comments

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.
