Client Testimonial or Case Study

Client testimonials take time but they are super powerful in generating new business. Testimonials can be video-based like the one below by Scott Norton, or they can be shorter text. Their value is in persuading a potential client that you have made a difference to another business and you will be able to make a difference to them.

Once you have put together a testimonial it should be posted to your site, to Advisr and to your social media channels so that the time and effort involved pays off. These can be posted several times to reach more viewers.
