Building Trust With Your Customers

The Better Business Bureau published an article in May 2019 titled 7 Ways to Build Trust with Your Customers and Why It Matters. Although this was published nearly two years ago, I can’t think of a more relative time than now. It begins with discussing how, at that time, authenticity was the latest buzzword, as younger generations want authentic connections and transparent corporate practices with businesses they use.  Two years later, authenticity is still around; however, it is no longer a buzzword, but rather, an expectation from consumers. The most effective way to prove your authenticity is from being a business known for its trustworthiness by building trust among your customers. Being able to truly say you are trustworthy will make your business stand out from the rest, especially with such fierce online competition.

One of the suggestions to building trust offered by the BBB is engaging on social media. These platforms are excellent for telling a story and making personal connections with photographs and videos to give your customers an inside look at your company.

Another suggestion is hiring a branding agency to tell your story. You may be thinking that you can’t afford to do that, but you know how the old saying goes, “It takes money to make money.” It’s true in order to grow your business, your customers need to know about you and learn about all the great things you do. The best way to accomplish this is by utilizing all online platforms. I think you would be surprised at how cost-effective it is to hire a company to do these things for you leaving more time for you to offer a great customer experience.

Of course, other ways to build trust are by offering consistent quality and service and by doing what you say. However, you have to be able to connect to your potential customers to let them know about you by allowing them a peek inside your business and what you are all about.
