So Whats Involved In Your Video Testimonials

Preparation, Preparation, Preparation! Like any video work the key is in preparing for the shoot and understanding the overall look and feel of the end product. Without giving away the questions asked to your interviewees you would still provide them an insight into what the overall sense of the interview involves.  Make them at ease, and not uncomfortable focusing on having a conversation rather than static question/answer. For credibility, ensure the answers you are seeking are positive in nature.

So individual testimonials or a combined edited version. Personal preferences really but for a great professional feel, a combined edited video testimonial will have more appeal than singular testimonial. Think about it this way, will you sit there and watch 5 x 60 second video testimonials consecutively, or rather watch an entertaining version which includes all 5 testimonials edited in a manner that enforces the message. An example below showcases this principle.

Video Testimonials is a trust building tool and will convert those just looking, to buying!
