Building Digital Trust – The Key To Online Success in 2019

With data breaches and worries about fake news, consumers and businesses increasingly evaluate how much they can trust business websites. So, building digital trust is the key to building confidence in your product or service in today’s digital age

Why you need to worry about building digital trust

Building Digital Trust

Building trust with customers will translate to better customer acquisition, greater customer loyalty, and, therefore, more revenue – no matter what business or service you offer. So, it’s not something you want to ignore.

But, what is digital trust?

If you Google “digital trust meaning” you’ll find this digital trust definition by – “Digital trust underpins every digital interaction by measuring and quantifying the expectation that an entity is who or what it claims to be and that it will behave in an expected manner”

Put more simply, building digital trust refers to the confidence your consumers have that your online presence is authentic and secure.

Building a digital world consumers can trust – how your business can stand out

Regulations around data security, privacy and keeping up with site security have often been seen as a cost of business. But in today’s digital world, investing in digital trust should be seen as more of an enabler of business – helping you to stand out from your peers.

Digital opportunity trust. Here’s a handy acronym to keep in mind:

T – TRUE TO YOUR WORD – Every interaction with your business should deliver what it promises. So, whether your client clicks through from a PPC ad, or from an organic SEO listing, your digital content should deliver results that are in line with expectations. No click bait, no shady redirects, just quality content.

R – RESPONSIVE AND DEPENDABLE – Trust is built when you respond authentically to your customers. So, be responsive to online reviews, reply to those blog post comments and answer those email enquiries.

U – USER EXPERIENCE – Once a customer has connected with your business, is the user experience a continuous process? Every interaction, from a web enquiry to phone calls and in-person service, should create a consistent client experience.

S – SECURITY AND SAFETY – Your client needs to feel reassured that it’s safe to transact on your website, or enquire about a service. You need to prove that you’re reliable – you are what you say you are and do what you say you do – and that privacy and data security are taken seriously.

T – TRUST – Don’t underrate it or underestimate the real cost of losing trust with your customers.
