It’s good to include an increase in return-on-investment if that is appropriate for your kind of business. Rather than a dollar amount, percentages are useful since each business will yield different revenues based on what they are selling.

If at all possible, ask if you can put their name and the company name/location on the testimonial. I suggest getting written email permission from them to use it for marketing purposes so it’s not later said it wasn’t granted.

It’s even more powerful if you can have a video having your client explain how you are different from the “other shirts on the rack”.  That is, why go with you for their products or services.
