Testimonial Builder App Passes 500 Downloads
App helps business fill the consumer need for authentic video testimonials
Baltimore, MARYLAND - Testimonial Builder, the premier mobile app
for filming and syndicating video reviews, recently surpassed the
500-download threshold. The iPhone and Android versions of the app
debuted at NADA earlier this year and have been embraced by the automotive
Digital video was one of the fastest growing media channels of 2016
and is expected to continue its expansion and reach into 2017. In
a Hubspot survey, researchers found that 90% of consumers use product
videos to make a purchase decision and 80% of viewers recall a digital
video they have viewed in the past 30 days. In a digital market saturated
with banner ads, pay per click flashes, and a revolving Facebook News
Feed, video stands out and makes a lasting impression.
"Marketers cannot underestimate the power of digital video,"
said Peter "webdoc" Martin, Founder and President of Testimonial
Builder. "Unfortunately, not every business has access to a green
screen or a studio budget. The Testimonial Builder app makes you the
producer, director and cameraman, giving the user access to a scrolling
teleprompter, on-screen cues, and push-to-share options. Even the
most novice tech neophyte can create professional quality digital
videos and push the finished product into the local News Feeds."
Testimonial Builder makes it possible for every salesperson to use
their smart phone to create their own authentic video marketing material.
The salesperson follows the script on the teleprompter in the app
to guide their customer through a video review and is then prompted
to capture a signature on an electronic release form allowing the
company to use the testimonial on their website or advertising. The
video is automatically uploaded to YouTube and posted on the company's
custom testimonial website.
The Testimonial Builder app uploads videos in real-time and emails
the video directly to the customer, so that they can share it with
their friends while they are still excited. By incorporating Testimonial
Builder into the selling process, each closed sale becomes an opportunity
to earn referral business. The average Facebook user has over 350
friends (Statistica) and the app makes it easy for them to post to
Facebook and other social networks including Twiter and Google+. In
addition, they can also email or text the video link to their friends
helping the business reach a large, trusted, local audience for free.
The mobile video audience is becoming increasingly relevant. Hubspot
reports that 92% of mobile video viewers are likely to share the video
with a friend. Testimonial Builder enables businesses to harness the
power of organic sharing and build a positive reputation. YouTube
projects mobile video consumption will continue to grow at a rate
of 100% each year.
"500 downloads is a big milestone, and it's just the beginning,"
said Martin. He expects rapid growth to continue as they expand into
other verticals. "We are continuously researching and updating
the app to incorporate the latest SEO trends. Digital marketing is
a fluid field and only the most innovative designers can stay ahead."
The app is available as a free download on the App Store and Google
Play Store. Users can load up to 7 video testimonials with the free
version. Testimonial Builder is available for any business that is
looking to improve their online presence and share video testimonials.
The company plans to expand into other industries including: automotive
repair, heavy trucks, health and fitness, hospitality, medical, dentistry,
service, retail, professional and real estate. To learn more about
the program and its various tiered-packages, visit www.testimonialbuilder.com
