Here’s how this can play out if you are eager to contribute a video

In case of video testimonial interview or self-interview is generally a good starting point to consider, both for individuals and companies. Depending on your experience, time, and resources you may go in your testimonial as far as this one, created by an iDempiere end-user company, but it is much more important just to stay clear and honest in your message.

If you are an individual

PS. We found that shooting with the help of a standard and cheap ear-bud smartphone wire for sound recording is quite good.

If you are an end-user company

  • Look into these video tips as well as 2 others above
  • Probably, as an organisation, you have a little more resources at your disposal than an individual.
    • Maybe there are some marketing videos shot by your organisation that you can repurpose for use in your testimonial?
    • Maybe you have a creative colleague who would love to help in shooting or montage?
    • Anyway, you can always go for an old and good self-interview as described in a section for individuals.
  • Create a short video 1-5 minutes long and share it with us.

Remember, that we would love to have your imperfect testimonial rather than to have no testimonial at all )))

Oh, other things to consider while creating a testimonial

  • Use a professional and friendly tone
  • Please, follow the code of conduct. Generally, it is a good idea to avoid topics unrelated to the software such as personal opinions on politics or other people, etc.

Submit your testimonial at the marketing forum. Every testimonial will be reviewed by the Marketing committee before publishing if the committee considers the testimonial or case study needs to be reviewed. You will be contacted with the requested changes
