Testimonials are one of the most powerful tools of marketing and in particular Video ones!. A recommendation or referral from a satisfied customer affirming the performance, quality, and/or value of a service offers an independent indication that you have done a good job. This can help reassure potential new customers, as well as distinguishing you from your competitors!

So here’s why you should include testimonials as one of your marketing tools:

* Testimonials help build trust.

* Testimonials are unbiased and not “salesy.”
* Testimonials overcome scepticism.
* Testimonials substantiate your claims.
* Testimonials establish credibility.
* Testimonials endorse the benefits of your products or services.

‘Spent a great couple of hours on Friday 13th with Polly going through the Facebook marketing essentials for my new business @PamPurredcats. Lots of useful, fun ideas and tips – look out for Paws for Thought in the not too distant future!
One tip from Polly added 75 new likers to my page in just one day – yipee!
Thanks Polly Thatcher!’ – Elaine Cockle, Owner of PamPurred Mobile Cat Groomer

‘Feeling a little lost and overwhelmed by the whole prospect of using social media to promote my nutrition business, I’d dabbled a little but generally avoided it as much as I could. My page was pathetic and saw little activity from me. I just didn’t have the time or interest to be honest. My business was plodding along relying on my website and word of mouth to generate business. I kept telling myself that this was fine and that things would pick up soon, which of course they didn’t, and on I went. This made me feel pretty low and isolated at times, especially when I saw colleagues posting interesting posts on their FB pages ALL the time!! My confidence and motivation was taking a negative hit. And then I met Polly!  Immediately I felt massive support and encouragement from Polly and her enthusiasm to get things moving was contagious ! Within literally days my FB page was revamped to a very professional level and various interesting posts appeared attracting lots of new followers. Better still, this was all done behind the scenes by Polly not me! Suddenly my confidence lifted and my drive was back! Friends and colleagues started complimenting me on my amazing FB activity, they were truly impressed which made me feel great. This inspired me to raise my game and now I cannot wait to check my page, put up new posts and even make video clips! New enquiries are starting to come in and I’m busier and more importantly, happier than I’ve been in a very long time, years in fact! Polly takes the stress out of the media side by getting this off the ground and managing it for me. This allows me to focus on my actual work, which is just as well now! Polly is also great at suggesting new and exciting ideas of how to create further interest and business and is fun to work with. She knows exactly which areas to target to how. So, for those like me just plodding along, give her a call and get that buzz, motivation and success back into your work life! Polly has just set me up on instagram too so we are full steam ahead working as a team with plenty more ideas in the pipeline including weekly video interviews. And on it goes…Polly has turned my business around in a matter of a couple of weeks. Watch this space! Thank you Polly 

‘Polly has done a great job setting me up with a business Facebook account and taught me how to use it. She has helped me to take my business to the next level. Her enthusiasm and passion for social media and advertising is great’. – Barbara Gornall Cranio-Sacral Therapist

‘I recently fitted 2 bathrooms for Polly at her house and discovered that she specialises in helping small businesses with their marketing and social media. I wasn’t on Facebook as I am a bit of a technophobe and Polly convinced me to get on Facebook first of all and then I realised after seeing my colleague put a picture of my work on Facebook there was a lot of interest which made me think it would be great to have a Business Facebook page. Polly set up this for me and explained it and spent time going through it with me and already I am finding it incredibly useful and easy to use and a great way to showcase the work that I do. Polly is so enthusiastic and has really inspired me with what she has done on getting my page set up. Thank you Marketing Madness!’ – Tim Stacy Bathroom Fitter
