Don’t be bashful. Testimonials are hot!
And a genuine review from one of your clients is the best advertising your brand can get because today, word-of-mouth publicity is one of the driving ways consumers are swayed to buy.
Resist the urge to edit or revise any part of a glowing review before you post it on your website or social channels. Perfect grammar isn’t what the reader or visitor is looking for; they want to see that you are relevant, genuine and real.
Get Permission First
If you’re using any likeness of your customer on the review, their name or photo, be sure to reach out and ask for permission to use their review and words on your website or social pages. Plus, it gives you one more touch point with that customer to tell them, “Thanks…you really made our day!”
Building your Brand Naturally
We hear a lot about branding and culture and how to create it from every branding expert out there. But some of the best brands let their reputation, character simply be a byproduct of how they go to business, treat the customer, or do whatever it takes to produce the best quality.
