Video testimonials combine the power of recommendation with the effectiveness of video.
It’s more powerful than text advice, because you can watch and listen to real human beings testify to their experience. It’s ultra authentic.
The icing on the cake: your customers become ambassadors for your company.
Your prospects are sure to be reassured.

Social networks

Video testimonials fit perfectly into a content strategy on social networks. Be careful, however, to adapt the format to your platform.
Vertical for Tiktok, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube Shorts. Square for a Linkedin, Facebook or Twitter post.

– Generate interaction (virality)
– Promote your products/services
– Reaching your target audience

The mail

Including a video in an e-mail significantly improves the click-through rate.
The most obvious example is integrating a testimonial video into a newsletter.
It’s a great way to liven up your newsletter, giving your customers a chance to talk about a particular aspect of your product or service. It’s a new way of informing your readers.
