In the animal kingdom, there lies a singular truth. There is strength in numbers, and that’s exactly where the idea of social proof comes from. What is social proof? It’s exactly what it sounds like, proof amongst the community that you know what you are doing and can get the job done. Today, Logan and Alex are talking all about the social proof gained through testimonials and reviews and how you as a contractor can leverage this social proof to build trust with prospects and customers.
