Course testimonials and case studies inject a level of credibility into your business that is unparalleled. There are a few key differences to understand when brainstorming ways to capture this feedback on your business. Course testimonials are written in the customer’s voice – it’s short, direct, and often just a quote or brief paragraph.
A case study, however, tells the customer’s complete story from beginning to end. Throughout 2-3 pages, a case study outlines the customer’s challenge, the solution, and the outcome in a relatable way. Prospective buyers want to see themselves reflected in the featured scenario, especially those who are investing more time and money into your product/service. Case studies need to be about the customer – showcase them! Include video, audio, photos – anything that will help buyers connect with the story on a personal level.THIS question is the key to capturing effective #OnlineCourse testimonials, and you don’t want to miss hearing Maggie Patterson’s full explanation of this idea on this episode of the #10XProfits podcast.
