In Episode #45 Neil and Eric talk testimonials—what they are, why they’re important, and how you can go about collecting them for your business. Listen as Neil and Eric share their personal experience with testimonials—both good and bad—and illustrate why you should never create a fake testimonial.

  • 01:49 – YesInsights
  • 02:39 – Email people asking for feedback
    • 03:03 – Roughly 3 people out of every 100 will give you feedback…at least one of those should be good enough for a testimonial
  • 04:32 – A testimonial will give you a conversion lift of around 8% to 10%
  • 05:19 – Net Promoter Score
  • 06:05 – Be sure to ASK people if you can use testimonials…if you don’t, you can get in BIG trouble
    • 06:15 – However, when it comes to logos, it’s better to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission

  3. Testimonials will help your conversions, but not by any astronomical amount…10% if you’re lucky.
