You already know that a testimonial describes how a product or service helped a previous client. Business owners often ask satisfied clients for testimonials based on their questions.

Why are testimonials so influential?

  • Testimonials are an effective way to market your business, product, or services.
  • Helping prospective clients see your business through the eyes of others similar to them makes them feel more comfortable buying from you or even giving you their emails.
  • They are giving others information about their experiences with you and your business.

I have a question for you. What do people trust when rating a movie they might want to see?

Among those reviewers are movie rating sites, movie trailers in a theater, movie critics who are still trusted sources, and TV commercials.

  • However, when a friend recommends a movie they’ve seen, what they say is listened to more often.
  • It’s easier to trust someone’s recommendation who doesn’t have a vested interest or isn’t being paid to recommend an offering.

Unlike an advertisement or marketing message, it doesn’t have a commercial purpose. 

Your goal is always to build trust. 

  • And building trust is the purpose of testimonials and shows why testimonials are powerful for your business.

I once read, “In business, only two things matter. These are reality and perception. However, reality only matters to the extent that it influences perception.”

As a business, you want to recognize how and what to create and talk about your product passionately as you communicate about merchandise your ideal client will want and desire to buy.

Why Use Audio And Video Messages

Are You Missing Out?

Sharing content is great, but if you’re relying solely on the written word and static images, you’re missing out on chances to build trust with your potential and existing customers. We are social creatures created to pay attention to audible and visual clues to help us get to know someone better. There’s power in using audio and video. They are great tools that will generate trust like nothing else.Helping you connect with your audience and help them feel the emotion.

What do you think your podcast could/would do for your brand when you dream big?

You’ll always focus on creating audience-appealing content. Podcasting and audience appeal is an excellent way to increase your conversions!

I know you’ve heard that your audience has to know, like, and trust you before they will consider becoming paying customers. They get to know you through your written content and social media presence. 

  • They may like what you have to offer and what you’re sharing and may even be impressed by your expertise. But earning enough trust to pull out that wallet and make a purchase from you can be tricky. That’s where your face and your voice come in.

We pick up many clues when we hear someone’s voice and even more when we see them speak. 

That’s why audio and video messages are so important in your marketing. Don’t be afraid to use them. 

     Start with audio if a video is intimidating. You can start your own podcast or offer to become a guest on other people’s episodes. Read more

In business, consistency and following through create confidence in you and your daily routines.

 

We often tell people they don’t have to be perfect to be a great leader, but some elements must be on par when building trust.

  • Consistency allows you to establish outreach and trust and provide services effectively and profitably.
  • Being consistent helps you achieve your goals, establish habits, and helps to show others that you are trustworthy.
  • Being consistent helps to build habits you want to grow.

  • Your constant show of honesty and integrity does earn others’ trust and respect. That is what you like and want!
  • This means that your honesty and integrity influence the way others see and trust you.
  • Take time to listen to them and engage. Helping to encourage others in doing great things.
  • Showing your interest does help inspire people to step up.
  • Keeping your promises shows others that you respect them and also what you expect of them.

What is the function of having a clear sales message?

Have you checked your informational content messaging to ensure you share what your audience is searching for and want to see?

How is your content and messaging influencing your audience to want more?

  • Take a minute to fine-tune and modify to ensure each piece of your sales funnel is on point. I know, that’s easier stated than done.
  • It can be tough to objectively check your creations and see what’s functioning and what isn’t.
    • When creating your sales page or a whole sales funnel, it’s always excellent to double-check your data.
      • Ex: Is your ideal audience engaging, and are you seeing conversions as anticipated? Otherwise, there’s something off.
    • See if you can determine what it is. Make your adjustments and examine once again. Did the numbers improve? Make notes of any adjustments and develop your messaging based on what seems more attractive to your audience.
  • One option is to have somebody audit your content sales messages. Preferably this will be someone who represents your perfect target market. Locate a good friend, coworker, or perhaps an existing customer you have a relationship with to check through it and provide feedback.
    • What made good sense?
    • What didn’t make good sense?
    • Look for anything in your content that made them not want to purchase or even sign up for your free offer.

Defining Your Content With Your Monthly Theme

Want to get more work done and more quickly?

Constantly having to change hats and not having a plan really does stop the work that is fresh on your mind.

Create Your Social Media Content Strategy so you can use it over and over in:

  • Your blog
  • YouTube
  • Facebook Profile & Page Posts, and Group
  • Pinterest
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • Landing Page
  • Products – Freebies and Paid Offers
  • Marketing 
  • AND…all of this can be personalized for your email list.

Now you’ll have a lot of content to breakdown and

use in many different ways.

Content strategies aren’t just for blogs, websites, and product descriptions. Content stratgies are marketing and are critical for social media and your business success.

BUT…What are Content Strategy Themes for and do they work?

How about thinking of Content Strategy Themes:
As buckets of your ideal topics that your niche loves and that you are in business for sharing. Now you have a guide for creating and planning your content.

I know (really well!) that when you can sit, stay focused, and finish a task as you have planned you not only feel great about it… you get instant gratification!

Because when your content is up and ready you’re done and ready to move on. 

But the interruptions seem to be intentional because all of a sudden you remember something, like ‘uh-oh’ I need to post in my group, page, Instagram, etc, taking time away from your planned project.

When you have a system you follow, you can take a look at it being all done for the day, week, and even working into the month of growing your business, and it feels like such a release of the ‘have tos’ as you’re getting it done!

Making life and business so much more fun!

You can also get your pieces of content ready to go based on a theme.
