How Much Does It Cost to Film a Professional Customer Testimonial?
Customer testimonials are a great way to shine line on your business. They’re an extremely efficient way to bring awareness to your product, message, or campaign. Professional customer testimonials do the hard work for you, allowing current customers to bridge the gap between you and future customers. But how much does it cost to film a professional customer testimonial? That depends on three factors:
#1 How many customers you’re filming;
#2 How many crew members you require to film the testimonial;
#3 The location of your testimonial.
More or Less
The more customers and crew members your production requires, the more money you’re going to pay. More crew members means more equipment usage and an overall more complex video. Keep in mind that this is very, very doable — It’s just going to cost you more. When budgeting for a professional customer testimonial, it’s also important to keep in mind that the location you’re filming at will affect the price. Shooting testimonials at a studio might price differently than testimonials inside of your own business.
We 100% understand that budgeting for your client testimonial video can get complicated. With each video being different, your product should be unique, highlighting everything you have to offer your potential clients. From the video director outlining your video, to the video rendering process, there are many things to take into account when creating a top-quality video.

Customer Testimonial Template
The best customer testimonials are ones that are direct and authentic. It’s best to gather “super fans” or clients that are openly enthusiastic about their experience with you. (Happy customer testimonials are optimal, after all.) Gathering super fans is best done through e-mail communication. An alternative to gathering these optimistic clients are catching clients right after working with them, requesting if they wouldn’t mind giving a testimonial. The optimal customer testimonial template includes a video of a client explaining role and/or company and their positive experience.
Online Video Testimonials
