How to ask for a Testimonial / Recommendation?
Best Email Format? When to ask for it?

 8:45 am on Feb 22, 2012 (gmt 0)

Is there a preset format to follow when writing to a satisfied client, requesting them for a recommendation?

When is the best time to ask for a testimonial? Say you're working on a large project and you've delivered a portion of it. The client says they are satisfied / happy with the quality. Should you ask for a testimonial now or only after the entire project is over?

Any ideas?

When it's over.

Good question. In general:if you postpone your query,it will be less memory. So, fast as you can get your recommendation. Large project is the same as short in this manner.

There is no special "writing format" to request testimonials. Usually a standard business type email is sufficient. Most folks will not be willing to write a testimonial before the work is completed, so keep that in mind.

I offer my new clients a strong link from my website in exchange for a short testimonial. Most of them take me up on this.

Good point toplisek. Usually, it takes a couple of requests to receive a testimonial from a satisfied client. However, it's good to know that it's not important to follow a specific format.
