It is simply too easy to create, share and watch content online today and bandwidth have caught up to meet our unsatisfiable need for video data consumption.

Testimonials are one of the most powerful ways to capture your company’s essence. Testimonial videos are also perceived to be more trustworthy than written testimonials.
