Helpful guidelines for building trust in your brand.
Having trust in a brand is just like having trust in a person: it has to be earned. These simple steps can help start the process of building a customer base that depends on you.
Dependability is a critical asset in building trust with your customer base. Be sure you have integrity in your supply chain; your customers want what they want, when they want it, and it’s your responsibility to get it to them.
Your customers don’t deserve to know everything about your business, but they deserve something. Be as clear and honest and forthright with them as you can be, regarding past failures/successes as well as future initiatives.
Be proactive about growing your business, by understanding both your successes and your failures. Reach out to your target market and get their input on what you did wrong — and what you did right.
