A customer testimonial video is perhaps the most effective type of content marketing videos. They can be used for both B2C and B2B marketing videos because they evoke trust and build tremendous social capital. A testimonial video need not be 'polished' or even scripted. The more authentic it feels the more it will resonate emotionally with the target audience. Testimonial videos are generally not the first marketing video to be used with potential customers and clients. They are generally used further down the marketing funnel.
On this podcast, hosts Joel Goobich and Brendan Carty discuss the ins and outs of why and how to use testimonial videos as well as give some best practices for creating your own.
