The Importance of Testimonials

It’s easy for anyone to call themselves an expert online these days, and as an entrepreneur, I know how important it is to invest your time, energy and money into hiring and partnering with the right person – a person with a track record of success, who is committed to their work and, most importantly, knows what they can deliver and can achieve results.

It’s also really easy to spam your entire LinkedIn network for endorsements and get hundreds of vanilla testimonials from people that hardly know you and never worked with you in a short period of time.

Therefore, I always recommend, before hiring anyone, to see if they have good testimonials, and to pay attention to 3 key indicators:

  1. Is the person providing the endorsement a trusted member of your community, well established in their industry, or a recognized authority in your field?
  2. Are the successes claimed by the individual in their resume or CV substantiated by 3rd party testimonials?
  3. Are all the endorsements recent, or is there a track history of detailed, positive testimonials that spans many years?

Praise I’m Deeply Grateful For

Here are some of the really wonderful endorsements from other people around my commitment to a better world, and my capacity to deliver results. Thank you so much for your trust in me, and for inspiring me to be the remain true to my mission and vision.

Lorna hired me as a blogger to assist in a link building campaign for a top national solar company. Over the course of three months, Lorna coordinated with myself and other writers to create a large volume of optimized blog posts for well-known green websites. Although the project was large and at times unwieldy, Lorna manged the remote team with deft efficiency. I was very impressed to see that within 90 days, the client ranked #1 for a highly competitive solar keyword.

Praise for Results Driven Internet Marketing

Here are endorsements of my work in online marketing and online advocacy, which includes search engine optimization (SEO), social media marketing, content marketing, viral marketing, video marketing, blogging, and WordPress micro site development.

 

Lorna pioneered our social SEO campaigns and tested various approaches to viral link building, from infographics, to video, free apps and widgets. It’s hard to make B2B go viral, yet she was able to come up with content ideas and identify vendors to help us launch a variety of different campaigns. She single handedly managed and grew several niche microsites, driving the content, traffic, rankings and lead gen strategy.

Praise for My Digital Products

I’ve lead the development of web apps and digital products that solve problems and provide value to small businesses and entrepreneurs.

Lorna is a creative thinker, effective planner, and gifted leader. I had the pleasure of working with her on a 2-week project to integrate WordPress with Salesforce—just in time for the WordPress user conference and the Web 2.0 expo. It was an extremely ambitious time frame given all the project complexities.

Lorna pulled together all the technical pieces, effectively led a diverse team, and mounted a comprehensive social media campaign that resulted in lots of publicity, including mentions by Matt Mullenweg and in Tim O’Reilly’s keynote.

sylvia lehnen ~ Sylvia Lehnen
Director, Content Marketing & Campaigns at SuccessFactors


I worked with Lorna on the launch of a plugin that captures leads from WordPress sites and, instead of routing the lead to your email – where it easily gets buried – as most lead capture plugins do, it is captured in Salesforce CRM. It was a really useful app, that solved a problem that our users were facing – how to easily add a web form to their WordPress site that was easy to use, integrated with their existing design, and didn’t require additional dev resources in order for it to work.

It was an under the radar project whose success took everyone by surprise, with mentions on all the major tech blogs. WordPress to Lead great case study in the power of freemium app development, viral marketing and social media PR.
