Thanks for the compliment, would you mind putting that in writing...or better yet, put it on video? I must say that I am truly blessed with fantastic clients! Over the years, whenever a client pays me a nice compliment and offers their heartfelt thanks, I always ask if they'd mind putting it in writing. It's nice to publish them on my marketing materials and on my website. With the technology advancement and my passion for video, I've decided to ask for a video testimonial as well. Many are nervous to go in front of the camera, but they are troopers and luckily accept. (7 comments)
