Establishing Trust With Your Customers Through Your Marketing

Your ability to build trust with your customers can make or break your business. When a customer trusts your brand, they’re much more likely to recommend you to others and continue to use your services or product in the future- referrals from current customers are fantastic leads! And when potential customers can see you’re a trustworthy company, they’re more likely to pick you over a competitor, even if you might be the more expensive option.

So let’s look at some steps you can take to ensure that your messaging has an impact and helps establish trust with your customers.

Be Authentic

Customers want to connect with real people who know what they are talking about when it comes to their business. Being authentic in all areas of communication—from blog posts to social media—will help customers feel connected to you and increase their trust level in you as an entrepreneur. Showcasing your expertise while still keeping it lighthearted will also help foster relationships with customers.

Be Open & Honest

Nobody likes being deceived or misled—it’s just part of human nature. That’s why it’s so important to be open and honest when communicating with your customers. Even if things don’t go according to plan or something goes wrong, an apology (when necessary) combined with honesty will go a long way towards mending any broken bridges between yourself and your customer base.

Listing reviews and testimonials on your website and social media can help showcase the trustworthiness of your brand. Since testimonials come from actual customers, they can hold more weight and convince potential customers to buy from you.

Make it Personal

When people shop online, they often forget there is an actual person behind the website or product they are buying from. That’s why it’s so important for entrepreneurs to personalize their communication with their customers as much as possible—in order for them to feel like they are connecting directly with someone instead of simply interacting with a faceless entity. A personalized message always makes a customer feel seen and heard which almost always leads them closer towards trusting in the brand/business/entrepreneur behind the message even more!

Building trust doesn’t happen overnight but it is achievable if you stay consistent and intentional when communicating with your customer base. By applying these three tips—being authentic, open & honest, and making it personal—you’ll be well on your way towards establishing strong relationships that last far beyond just one purchase.
