“The data shows that 93% of people say online reviews impact their buying decisions.”

—  Licia Morelli

Okay, be honest…what’s the first thing you do before you sign on the dotted line to work with a new coach or whip out your credit card to buy that mascara you’ve been eyeing?

If you’re like the vast majority of us, you probably read every review and testimonial you can get your hands on.

Social proof has the potential to make or break a sale — that’s why sites like TripAdvisor, Yelp, Consumer Reports, or MakeupAlley are so popular.

Bad news if you’re getting negative reviews. But great news if your customers are singing your praises!

My guest for this episode, copywriter Licia Morelli, calls testimonials one of the most important pieces of impact for buying decisions. Prospects want to know who you are, how you do business, whether your offer is valuable to them and what they can expect from a customer experience perspective.

Knowing how to leverage testimonials makes it much easier to sign new clients or sell more products. Plus, you can use the language and specific details found in your testimonials to craft more resonant copy that will attract even more of your ideal customers!

So, how do you get killer testimonials from satisfied customers?

Here’s the big secret: if your clients are happy with the work, they’ll be thrilled to give you a glowing recommendation — you just need to ask!

Do you have a solid customer relationship? Have you met their needs? Were they excited about the work? If you’ve built a great relationship, then go ahead and request that they put it in writing!

Many clients don’t really know where to start when it comes to writing a testimonial — so Licia put together a brilliant template for listeners of the Captivate + Convert podcast, designed to help your clients list out all the reasons why people should work with you!

Hit play to discover:

  • How and when to approach customers to get that red-hot testimonial (or referral!) that’ll help you close more sales
  • The legal do’s and don’ts of sharing testimonials — and how to avoid getting fined by the Federal Trade Commission
  • A bonus testimonial template that makes getting that killer review a total breeze
