Storytelling – Developing Authenticity
Create a connection with your customers using S T O R I E S in your social media! ?
You might be asking yourself, “what constitutes a good story on social media? One of the easiest ways to tell a story is from the eyes of your clients and customers. Client testimonials are a POWERFUL TOOL and should not be underestimated. A video testimonial is always ideal but videos can be a lot of work to gather and not everyone feels comfortable on camera. One of the easiest ways to get a client testimonial is to listen to what people say when they rave about your product/services and ask them if you can use that verbiage as a testimonial for your business. Add a headshot of your client or an in-action photo of your client and you are in business! Always make sure to tag their personal or business profile on social media as well!
