Collect Video Testimonials the Easy Way
UPDATE: this review was written in April 2018 and relates to the first release of Vidmonial. I didn’t test the improved and updated version 2.0 (with new features). I only changed the links to the new sales pages for version 2.0!
Vidmonial is a new cloud-based app that allows you to easily collect video testimonials from your customers.
The process is as easy as possible. Follow these easy steps:
Step 1 Create/Select a bonus that your buyers will get after completion of their review
This first step is optional but recommended to get more testimonials. Just select a “bribe” you want to give away to reward people who make a video testimonial, and enter all details in this module as bonus image, description, and download link.
Step 2 Create Your Campaign
Give your campaign a name, enter the “instruction title”, and set up the email message for your reviewers with download link or description how to get their bonus, coupon, or any bribe you want to give.
After you have saved your campaign, you can do several things…
Edit or delete your campaign, but most importantly, you now have generated a public link (URL)…
Step 3 Share your public testimonial page with your buyers and collect testimonials
As an example, I created this public URL.
Just try Vidmonial yourself and see how it works…
As you can see the buyer goes through 3 steps:
- He gives his personal data as name, email and picture.
- He enters his textual comment/review with star rating.
- He either selects a prerecorded YouTube video or starts recording immediately by using the built-in cloud-based webcam recording with pause/restart and “start again” record feature (until you buyer is satisfied).
After your buyer has finished his/her review, he will receive your bribe per email.
And now you can see the new review in your module “Received Testimonials”…
So, it’s time to…
Step 4 Publish, Share, or Download your video testimonial
You can embed the video testimonial to any web page you manage (via the HTML embed code) just as stand-alone video, or with the buyers name/image, textual review/comments and star rating.
Plus you can post your video directly to YouTube with a push of a button (after adding your video title, description and tags).
Or you can post your video testimonial to your FB Fanpage.
Finally, you can download your video to your PC/Mac in WebM format.
So, at the moment if you’ll need the video in mp4 format, you have to convert it yourself from WebM to mp4 (can be done for free by several video converting app, just Google and find your preferred converter).
Or you can download the mp4 from YouTube (after first uploading to YouTube).
Luckily, in the near future, the creators will add an additional feature to download directly in mp4 format.
Watch the demo videos for embedding and sharing your video testimonials…
So, here you have it, an easy to use app to collect (video) testimonials.
Are there any shortcomings?
This is the first release, and some things can be improved… For example, I tried to embed the WebM format video on this blog post but WordPress didn’t recognize this format. Hence, you now have to upload the video to YouTube first, or download your video first in WebM format and then convert it into mp4. (As said above the creators will add the direct mp4 download in near future) The testimonial page (where buyers go to the steps to give their testimonial) is hosted for you on a domain owned by the vendor. But there is no option to host this page on your own server/domain. Also, you can’t change or edit the layout of the testimonial page. Furthermore, the “thank you” email comes from a server of the vendor and buyers can’t reply directly to your email.
(Luckily, this is clearly stated in the thank you email) Finally, Vidmonial has no features to syndicate your testimonial videos to other social media or video platforms (besides Facebook and YouTube). For me no big deal as there are many other tools to syndicate your videos. So, some “shortcomings” to know about upfront, but for me no real “deal breakers” because this app is super easy to use. I found the app to work really fast (but as with all SaaS tools, the speed depends on the hosting/bandwidth usage by other members)
Note: these shortcomings relate to the first version. I didn’t test version 2.0!
Why should you buy Vidmonial?
Because it’s a very simple but useful app to collect and publish video testimonials from your customers. Once setup, you only have to share a hosted testimonial page where buyers can leave their personal data, written review, and video testimonial.
With the built-in video recording technology, anyone with a webcam can record his video testimonial without having to download or use an external app. (This is the real smart and unique feature of Vidmonial that I haven’t seen anywhere else)
Plus, I like the automated bonus giveaway feature to reward people to leave a review that definitely increases the number of testimonials you’ll get.
Hence, yes, I really like this tool. Especially if you take into account the…
