Doesn’t it feel great to receive commendation for the work you do? There’s nothing better than knowing you’ve truly made a difference in someone’s life or business and have helped them reach a new level of success.
Even better than your personal feelings is the fact that receiving positive feedback from your clients creates social proof for prospective clients. This is one of the reasons websites like YELP are so popular. Like it or not, the folks who are considering hiring you are going to details about what it’s like to work with you.
Most professionals I know don’t feel comfortable flat out asking for feedback and a testimonial. Perhaps that is true of you. If so, you’ll be happy to know you can easily circumvent any uncomfortable feelings by having a system in place to regularly collect testimonials from your clients.
