Dec 22, 2023

Are you tired of trying hundreds of marketing tactics to convince your customers to buy a product? Well, even your customers are. They are packed with information online, they have a lot to consume plus their appetite is absolutely limited. 

So what's the way? 

Today's digital age demands a digital reputation. If your customers can give a positive review to you, the crowd will follow you. Your potential customers will be viewing “real people, not actors”. They'll know the content is coming from a personal experience, and it's not just being simply endorsed. If you are lucky enough to bring in video testimonials, then wonders can happen. 

What exactly is a video testimonial? 

A video testimonial is user-generated content, where customers speak about their experiences with the brand. These testimonials look more authentic to viewers as they work on the principle of social proof. The idea here is to share real-life success stories to build a brand’s trust in their new/old customers. Videos capture the emotion of the customer speaking. It shows how a person’s facial expression changes while they are talking about their experience, their body language, and how exactly the brand made an impact. In short, a human connection is built between the customer (speaker) and the viewer. This connection fosters trust and credibility. It's a new favourite tool of organizations to improve their brand reputation and boost conversion rates.
