Why Case Studies Matter
Client case studies hold immense significance in establishing credibility and attracting potential clients.
These studies serve as tangible evidence of your ability to deliver results. By presenting real data, you can validate your claims and highlight your achievements.
Businesses are naturally drawn to agencies that can demonstrate their expertise through documented success stories, making case studies a vital tool in your marketing arsenal.
The Power of Video-Based Case Studies
When you hear the phrase “case study” you likely think of a long PDF doc that includes screenshots, data points, etc. that’s boring. That’s not what you should do.
Unlike written case studies, videos allow you to weave a compelling narrative, engaging viewers on a deeper emotional level.
By incorporating visuals, testimonials, and real-life scenarios, you can bring your success stories to life, making a lasting impression on potential clients.
5 steps to take to leverage case studies
We want to help our clients grow and succeed. So we’re always geared toward getting them good results. You want to create an amazing experience with stellar results so the clear impact you have in their business is astounding. Start every client relationship with the intention to knock it out of the park.
Step #1: Knock it out of the park for every client
Step #2: Use a simple interview framework
Step #3: Outline the questions you’ll ask and how they’ll flow
Step #4: Design your syndication strategy
Step #5: Leverage the case studies to attract ideal clients
The two types of testimonial formats
Each of these formats has its place.
Option #1: The client testimonial interview: You can do the interview via Zoom, ask your questions, edit them, and syndicate. This is more informational and emotional.
Option #2: Video-based results case study: You pull up their website, where they’re ranking, initial reporting, and then the effect after you’ve worked together. This is more analytical.
I recommend running a mix of both of these styles of interviews.
Focus on format and flow
Keep things simple.
Conduct the interview via Zoom (or you can use Restream and broadcast it live)
Let them know in advance the questions you’ll be asking
Capture audio and video at the same time (it’s easy to transcribe)
If it’s long enough, turn the interview into a podcast
Post the content on social media and in groups
Physically mail the testimonial to your dream 100 list
Live client case studies and interviews can be powerful. Why? You can do a Q&A at the end and people can get their questions answered in real time from real clients.
Ask the right questions
I’ll share a list you can use, but the main questions you want to tackle include:
Ask who they are and what services they provide
What problems were they looking to solve?
Why did they choose your company?
What did you implement?
What has the outcome been? How has it positively impacted them?
This will lead to a powerful and compelling case study that you can leverage. You have to be able to demonstrate how your company took them from where they were to where they wanted to be. Demonstrate real-life impact.
How to promote case studies
You can send this out via email and post it on social media. My favorite play is getting the case studies in front of your ideal client by running Facebook ads. You should run Facebook ads to your target audience. It’s one of the best things you can do. If they opt-in, you know they’ll be influenced by the results you produce. They’re giving you their name and email and entering your funnel.
When you’re promoting these case studies on social media, these people will subconsciously see you as an expert in the industry.

I started my local internet marketing agency in 2011. We started with ZERO clients and ZERO revenue. Now, we bill $425,000 per month ($4.5 Million per year), and grow every month.
There are three keys to that kind of digital agency growth:
► Choose a niche and focus intensely on serving it.
► Position yourself as THE expert in that niche.
► Serve your niche clients better than any competitor can.
In fact, our business is growing so consistently that we have awards to prove it. We have made the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing US companies four years in a row—2016, 2017, 2018, 2019.
