A Professional Tip: Don’t be scared about creating your own customer testimonial videos! Everyone can start doing it right away—after all, you’re already likely carrying around a camera in your pocket, so start small if you need to. Talk to your customers and test the effectiveness of video for yourselves. Once you get going and want to make your testimonials shine, you can always hire a video production company so they can manage all the things you’re either unfamiliar with or don’t want to deal with. Or, you can even hire a video production expert full-time on your own team; that way they’re always ready to take on interesting, educational, and creative video projects for your company. Just keep in mind: you get what you pay for, so start small if you need to, but consider all the benefits you could get from video experts.
