Yes! In fact most of my clients tend to ask for them these days!
* A good internet connection.
* A laptop/pc/mac with a webcam that makes both their faces and voices clear and recognisable. Most are fine but a few might not be so good. I can always check with your clients in advance to make sure they can be seen and heard clearly.
* They can also use either an android phone or an Iphone. Most phones make better video than webcams, as they were built partly for making videos. If its better that your client uses their phone, its often helpful if I send them either a stand or a holder like these.
* No matter where your client is, I can film them. I've filmed clients abroad whilst being in England, and I've filmed clients in England whilst abroad.
* It saves you having to pay travel costs if they are based far away.
* They can be set up quickly if you're worried the client's mood or availabilty might change soon, or don't want to risk that happening.
* Many people would prefer not to, or are unable to have someone film them in person, more so if they have concerns about Covid19.
Hell no! There's still some advantages that come from making testimonials on professional gear:
* More people will watch the video until the end.
* It suits your image better if you're keen to work with big companies above SME level.
* Its a better fit if you're wanting to mix testimonial footage with that of your handiwork and resources. A good example of this would be a builder who wants also to show off the housing work they've done.
Hell no! As long as the footage of your client is clear and stable, then people will have no trouble with it.
The most crucial thing by far, is that they have plenty of good things to say about you. If they don't, or fail to say them on camera, then it doesn't matter what you used to do the filming on, the results are still of no use.
My mortgage broking client's favourite video is one that was shot on zoom, because theirs was the most grateful and enthusaistic feedback he had recieved yet.
Professional equipment will always look better; how could it not? We're talking webcams and phones vs often expensive camera lenses (my own was worth £500 new), but it's worth making that extra investment only when your needs demand it.
