What the heck is social proof? And how can we use it in our one-on-one service-based business?
In this episode of Serve Scale Soar®, I’m diving into this topic and sharing the different types of social proof that you can add to your business so that you can land more clients that actually pay your premium prices.
If you don’t know what social proof is, it’s a psychological phenomenon where people assume the actions of others in an attempt to reflect correct behavior for a given situation.
People want to take the actions that other people have taken because they want to get the same results those people had. It’s incredibly effective and it can be used in your one-on-one freelance business.
There are four main types of social proof that you can use in your business. I’m sharing what they are, the best way to use them, and who it’s for.
- What social proof is
- Why testimonials are so effective
- How to get relationship testimonials
- How to use testimonial swaps
- Why referrals work so well
- Referral reward methods
- What a case study is
- How to use a case study as a lead magnet
- What earned media is
- The benefits of getting on podcasts
- Where to display social proof
Pick one method of social proof and go all in to start. What can you focus on this month? To prevent overwhelm, just try one thing at a time and build on it from there. I know you’ll be happy with the results.
