Last week, I called my good friend and client, Sarah Bowles, and asked her for some advice on how to get more referrals. She’s a referral machine and gets the vast majority of her clients from referrals. Who better to ask, right?
During our conversation, Sarah had a brilliant idea. She suggested we have our clients create videos detailing one thing they learned about websites, marketing or SEO from working with us.
Then we can post it to our YouTube channel, tag it with the client’s info, and share it across our social media feeds and our client can share it on theirs.
This is a great way to drive traffic to the client’s website, as well as ours, and it also acts as a sort of testimonial/referral for how we do business.
I told you it was a brilliant idea.
And of course I asked her to record our first video, which you can watch at OnlineStir.com/SarahBowles. Sarah learned a valuable lesson about how her old template hosting company ruined her SEO.
If you’re one of our existing clients and you’d like to record a video that’s less than 2 minutes in length about one thing you learned while working with us, please send it over and we’ll post it to our site and share it across all of our social platforms.
It doesn’t need to be professional…in fact, it’s better if it’s not. Take a look at Sarah’s video for ideas and inspiration. You won’t find cheaper advertising anywhere!
Oh, and we’re fine if you want to steal this idea for yourself. I’ll even be happy to record a video for you (if I’m one of your clients) and share it with the world. Just ask.
