NEW YORK, Sept. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Online shoppers are skeptical. If your ecommerce store doesn’t seem trustworthy, they won’t buy. Web development company in NYC, Huemor, discusses ways to build consumer trust below.
Customer testimonials and reviews are essential for building trust with your website visitors. Show your past customers who are happy with your products to help potential customers get over the fear of wasting money on an unknown brand. Don’t hide reviews: put them front and center so that they’re easy to read.
Don’t advertise third-party products. If you’re selling your own products, but you have advertisements…how do you think that makes you look? It looks like you’re trying to grab money wherever you can get it: this will not endear you to potential customers. Don’t display ads on your online store unless they’re promotions for other items in your store.
Display social proof Similar to showing reviews and testimonials, social proof in the form of awards, coverage in reputable media outlets, and trust seals and certifications go a long way towards helping customers trust.
Teach them something! Educational, well-researched content that provides value does more than show up in search engines: it also shows customers you’re committed to helping them get the most out of your products. Clickbait and thin content that doesn’t actually solve a problem can be a complete turn-off from making a purchase and you should avoid it.
Provide real-life information about your business. Customers should be able to easily find your contact information (email, business address, and phone number) to ask you any questions before they make a purchase. Most customers won’t actually call you but having the phone number there—knowing they have the option to call—goes a long way towards building that trust.
That’s 5 tips to building trust with your customers. More trust means Building a trusting relationship with your customers is key to running any kind of business, online or offline. Placing value on the relationship you have with your visitors, past, and potential customers will make your website more trustworthy and all the more likable. Utilize the tips above to begin building a relationship with your customers today.
