You've just finished a project. Your client is over the moon, and you know that now would be the best time to ask them for a testimonial, right before you say your final goodbyes.
But you feel uncomfortable. You just hate asking people for a favor, even if it takes a minute. Also because in the past, not every client replied, which
hurt your feelings was disappointing.
Today, I'd like to share with you my personal templates I use to ask for testimonials, which have a success rate of 100%.
Meaning, I got a great testimonial every time I asked for one, and if I wanted to edit it, the client was fine with that, too.
2 templates that make getting great client testimonials easy
Before we dive in, let's make sure we're on the same page:
Among other things, a great testimonial is one that covers:
- the challenges your client was struggling with
- how you help them overcome those challenges
- what specific results your work had for their business
...so that your prospects who'll be reading this testimonial can see that you successfully helped people with the same problems in the past.
Which also means that "Ann did a great job. We highly recommend her." is a bad testimonial.
Agreed? Good. Now to the templates.
