Client testimonials are priceless and a lot of new virtual assistants are asking how to get a glowing client testimonial.
So the question is how do you acquire a client testimonial especially if you are just starting out in your VA business?
First tip: Deliver outstanding work to make your client happy. Naturally, they will express how they feel about your work or your product.
Now, this is your opportunity to turn that praise into a testimonial. Ask your client if you can quote them and if you can put their feedback on your website with their complete name and URL. So this is a great way to promote your business and your client at the same time.
Second tip: Offer a free hour of work in exchange for a testimonial. Reach out to your connections, or to the people in your address book and let them know that you have just opened a VA business and you would like to offer them a free hour or a free service for a quick testimonial.
Now this is the fun part, once your contact likes the work that you do, who knows, they might be willing to hire you as their full time VA… and that is just one of the secret strategies to capturing your very first client.
Hope that helps! Until next time.
