When choosing a business, one of the most important factors is reputation. Almost 80% of people say they trust online reviews just as much as personal recommendations from family or friends. We got our start helping car dealers improve their online reputation with video reviews, but Testimonial Builder can be used for any business that needs authentic online reviews. With video trending as fast as it is, you can’t afford not to use video reviews in your digital marketing.
Video Testimonials are the best way to improve your business’s image.89% of marketers consider testimonials in general to be their most effective content marketing tactic. User-generated content specifically is an incredible way to reach your audience. There is nothing more powerful than a real testimonial from a happy customer. Through social media, you can gain exposure to potential customers, but most importantly you are creating personal references from people who have done business with you and are willing to vouch for you.
Founded on the principals of “your commercials suck” Barlow has built the first modern marketing membership for car dealers. ThePineapplesociety.com takes its own road, cuts its own path and creates its own footsteps in the sand because quite frankly, we can. After years of riding “traditional” advertising, The Pineapple Society decided to take a detour from the pack and thank GOD we did.
We now preach and execute interactive content and placement through the power of Facebook and other social platforms because eyeballs are more aware, ready and cheaper if the content you produce isn’t the typical crappy “selling” features. We are focused on creating your unique story, buying cheaper eyeballs, spending less of your marketing budget and yet having more to show for it with proof not guessing formulas.
See the plan and the promise on www.thepineapplesociety.com
