Testimonials are a Powerful Tool!

Testimonials are a Powerful Tool!

If you don’t ask for a testimonial, chances are you won’t get one. If you are not getting testimonials from your clients, you’re missing out on a powerful tool that could boost your income.

When you begin receiving great testimonials, people will want to buy your services or products because they know other people have liked them.  This is “social proof”.  Asking for testimonials can be uncomfortable and it doesn’t come easy to most people.   Many businesses just wait and hope that a testimonial will appear organically.

TestimonialsThe easy part is sending the email request for a testimonial.  Unfortunately, the hard part is actually getting the testimonial from your client.  Many people just do not have the time to do one.  Others really don’t know what to write in the first place.  Therefore, it is your job to make it easier for them.  Make sure to provide a link to the place that you want them to put their testimonial so that they can easily get to the site.  Furthermore, give them a few sample questions in your testimonial request email that can help them to get the ball rolling.

Here are a few that you might want to put to use:

  • What prompted you to seek our services or products? What situation or problem did you need to solve?
  • Why did you specifically select our company?
  • What made you believe that our company was the best for achieving your desired result?
  • How did you benefit from our product or service?
  • What are the two most significant improvements that have resulted from our products or services?
  • What exactly did our product or service do to contribute to the outcome you wanted?

Questions can encourage your client to open up and provide honest feedback, and the testimonial will be more convincing.

Sample Testimonial Email Template

Here is a sample Testimonial Email Template:

Could you please give me your testimonial on Google Business.  I have provided a link for your convenience.  Google Business Link

Therefore to help you get started, I’ve included a few questions, but please feel free to write whatever you like.

  • What prompted you to seek our services or products? What situation or problem did you need to solve?
  • Why did you specifically select our company?
  • What made you believe that our company was the best for achieving your desired result?

I sincerely appreciate your help and look forward to serving you and meeting your needs for years to come.

Warmest regards,

As a business it is imperative to start sending out testimonial email request on a regular basis to all your clients.  You might be surprised at the end results.

Find Out If Your Site is Mobile Friendly

Is Your Site Mobile Friendly?

Having a mobile friendly website is a critical part of having an online presence. Everyone today has some type of mobile phone that never leaves their side and is being used, constantly communicating, researching and looking for information. In some countries, smartphones have surpassed the number of personal computers.

Reasons why your website should be mobile-friendly.

  • In mobile search results, Google prioritizes optimized mobile-friendly websites over non mobile friendly websites.
  • Convenience.   Mobile devices are used everywhere and are used for all types of purposes from simple information gathering to buying big ticket items and much more. The reason? It’s fast and easy. Consumers in every industry want to connect and get what they’re looking for quickly. If you’re not optimized for mobile, you can’t offer your customers that type of experience.
  • Builds credibility with your customers, your clients, and influencers in your industry. It is important when someone visits your site on a mobile device that they have a proper experience that encourages them to see you as a credible resource for information, products and services.
  • Responsive web design has made mobile optimization more straight forward and accessible to everyone.  Users today expect this level of functionality when they browse websites on their mobile devices.
  • Google is rewarding mobile friendly websites with higher rankings in mobile search results.  Simply put, by having a mobile friendly site, your site will be seen and visited by more people than a non mobile friendly site.   This opens your customer base up to anyone doing a mobile search.
  • A mobile friendly site looks great and functions properly on any device provided you use responsive web design to build or redesign your site.

If your website is not mobile friendly, it should be.

Why You Need To Monitor Your Website Uptime

Monitoring your website uptime is critical for your business.   Are you testing your website to make sure it is available every minute, from all locations?

Companies rely on their websites and emails to work without any downtime.   If you’re  not monitoring your company’s website uptime, this could negatively impact your company down the road.  Every second that your website is down or takes longer to respond affects not only your brand reputation but your revenue.

What is Website Uptime Monitoring?

responsive-websiteWebsite uptime monitoring checks your website to make sure that it is up and running at all times.  You can check your uptime by typing in your URL and load the site, but unfortunately, you can’t monitor it 24 hours a day this way.  You could also hire a third-party service to monitor your website’s uptime, which is much more effective and will monitor your site 24/7.   Your web-hosting company may also have a monitoring system that will email you when your site is down.  If you are hosting a website with GoDaddy, they have a program called ManageWP and is free to GoDaddy users.  You must download the ManageWP app to your website in order for them to monitor your site. The ManageWp app will also manage websites outside of GoDaddy hosting.   Each time your site goes down, GoDaddy will send an email to the appropriate person to let them know that the site is down.  They will also send an email once the site goes back up.

One of our newest clients, Advanced Corrective Bodywork, hired RT Digital Media Marketing to help them develop a Search Engine Optimized website.  As we began making changes to their website, we noticed the site was very slow to respond and sometimes would take forever to come up, if at all.

Effects of Website Down Time

The website was constantly going down.  This hindered us greatly from making changes.  Their clients were calling them to let them know that the site was unresponsive.  Therefore, we started monitoring their website with ManageWP at the beginning of February 2017.   We began receiving several emails a day notifying us that the site was down.  Below is a copy of some of the emails and shows that on February 24th, the website was down 8 times.  This was happening daily.  We informed the hosting company of the issue several times and they agreed there was an issue but unfortunately didn’t have a date of when this would be fixed.

Advanced Corrective Bodywork needed a stable platform immediately.  Therefore, we redesigned their website and moved them to a better hosting company.   We started monitoring Advanced Corrective Bodywork’s new site through ManageWP. It has been 5 days since the hosting change and their website is up 100% with no downtime.

Automate Website Monitoring

website monitoringWhen you automate the monitoring of your site’s uptime, it will ensure you’re instantly alerted if any of your websites go down. Most third-party services will notify you if your site becomes unavailable so you can quickly fix the problem with minimal downtime. These services will automatically ping your site throughout the day to check that your site is still online.

Do You Monitor Your Website Page Load Speed?

Your website page load speed is an important part of any website’s user experience.  Some companies will accept slower page speeds to accommodate better artistic design, a new app, or to add more content to web pages. Unfortunately, website visitors would rather reach your website quickly than wait for your fancy design or new app to load.  Page loading time is also becoming an important factor when it comes to search engine rankings.

There are several programs and apps, such as Google,  that are available to test your website speed. Make sure when you are looking for a website design company, that you do a little research of your own. Go to their website and copy their company URL.  Go to the Google page speed test and run it.  You may be surprised by their results.  We tested three different Inbound Marketing Companies located in the Seattle area to see if they practice what they preach.    Here are the results.  The highest page speed was 64 out of 100.RT Digital Media Marketing - Monitor Website Downtime


RT Digital Media Marketing has over 12 years experience developing website designs that are responsive, creative, represent your brand and are easily accessible with minimal downtime.   We believe that our website should be a representation of what you can expect when hiring us. RT Digital Media Marketing’s page speed is 87 out of 100.  Our new client Advanced Corrective Bodywork’s website speed is 88 out of 100.  It is very difficult to get 100% page speed, but we strive to get as close to 100% as possible.  Contact us for a FREE CONSULTATION today.
