Struggling for social proof? Want to know EXACTLY what questions to ask to get great testimonials?

Hey, creative, I see you.

You’ve completed some dope-ass work, made your clients happy as hell, wrapped it all up, and then moved swiftly onto the next project…

You know you did an INCREDIBLE job, but you just can’t seem to bring yourself to ask for a testimonial, or you’re just so busy with said next project that you haven’t had the time to sit down and actually send the email…

Maybe, you’ve been DYING to ask because you know the feedback is about to seriously knock some socks off, but you’ve no idea what to ask…

Or maybe you’ve asked and your clients have kindly delivered but despite the feedback being positive, it’s just really lacking that special somethin’ somethin’.

Stop. Right. There. We’ve got you.

Look, we know the (social) proof is in the pudding. It’s about getting people talking about the pudding that counts.

And guess what?

It doesn’t have to be so hard but it does have to be intentional.

Getting some epic social proof that brings an endless stream of new clients knocking down your door, no longer has to be a minefield.

All it takes is to ask some super-simple questions to get those `smack ‘em in the face fantastic!’ reviews that have your customers literally banging down your door to work with you:

The 6 Questions most important questions we ask to get great testimonials

01 Where were you at before working with me/us, what problems were you struggling with and how did that make you feel?

02 What made you choose to work with me/us?

03 Where are you at now, how do you feel about your new x, y, z?

04 What was your favourite part of the process?

05 What would you say to someone who’s considering working with me/us?

06 Is there anything I/we could do better, next time?

You might be tempted to skip that last question but trust me, it’s an important one. If you want to be in business a long while, you better believe you’re on a constant journey of iteration and improvement – don’t miss out on the chance to get this valuable feedback from people that have actually worked with you, gone through your systems and processes and also paid money to do so. This will be some of the most helpful feedback you can get!

And voila!

Ok, so now you have the social proof, what about your website?
