Can you still recall the very first time you ever received a testimonial for your product or service? Do you remember how that felt?
Getting testimonials is very exciting and we love getting them because they inspire our team to do better. But that’s not the only reason why testimonials are important for your business. One of the fastest and easiest ways to boost the conversion rate of any website or marketing piece is to use testimonials.
Nowadays, people are becoming more cautious when it comes to new businesses. They are more skeptical because they want to avoid risks. They will need some sort of proof that your service or product is worth it. To overcome potential customers’ doubts, you will need testimonials.
And you should also know that it’s even better if those testimonials are in video form.
The Benefits of Video Testimonials
Having video testimonials will give your potential customers confidence in your product or service and entice them to purchase from you. Your testimonial about your own product doesn’t count because the true measure of a product or service is what other people say about it.
- More believable vs written testimonials
Written testimonials enable people to provide a detailed review of your product or service, However, video testimonials show real faces and reactions of your customers, which makes it more authentic, credible and believable compared to posting a block of text on your website.
- More engaging and relatable
Videos help you stand out in an increasingly noisy landscape. With the element of sound and movement present in every video, you can instantly capture the attention of potential customers. Plus, people are more likely to trust video testimonials than advertisements designed to promote your product or service. If people hear a story similar to their own, this increases the likelihood for people to buy from you.
- Shareable across different channels
The more video testimonials you have from existing clients, the more credible your business. You can use them on your website and in all your marketing materials. This in turn, will entice more clients to purchase or subscribe to your service.
But how do you gather them quickly and easily without the typical fuss? In this article, we’ll show you how to use a new technology tool called Vouch to help you to gather hundreds of high-quality video testimonials fast.
