Write the quotes down. Then celebrate them! Go ahead. Pat yourself on the back. These quotes are the evidence you’ve done a great job.
We don’t do this enough as small business owners. Next, these testimonials provide the key to your positioning in the marketplace.
Use testimonials to provide important clues on how you are better and different than your competitors.
Sprinkle them on your website or in brochures or even on your business card.
Post them on your bathroom mirror to remind you of how terrific you really are when you’re having a bad day.
Don’t Miss Any Opportunity to Capture a Compliment
Every time someone praises your work, you must find a way to capture those comments like the priceless jewels that they are.
Use someone else’s voice to telegraph your value to the world.
A testimonial from someone who has no vested interest is far more powerful than an advertisement, especially in this tightly social networked world.
Imagine each testimonial is worth more than a one carat flawless diamond.
An unpaid endorsement is the most important, honest reflection of the skills you bring to the world.
