One thing that stands out today in the social media world we live in is that it’s important to develop a sense of trust with your followers. This is especially true for small and medium sized businesses, since the amount of trust between business and follower will only serve to build customer loyalty.
Trust is essential to building your brand, and even the best marketers in the world won’t be able to sell a product without first establishing trust with their customer base. They must create stories that offer a connection with their consumers.
But how do you go about building that trust?
Use Your Content
Using content is the most reliable method you have for developing trust with followers. Create insightful, meaningful content that will provoke emotion and establish a connect with your consumers.
Next, convert the data into graphical form
For this, you should invest in professional graphic design. There are some designers and websites that focus entirely on infographics. Look through a few portfolios and choose a designer who makes attractive-looking, useful infographics. Keep in mind that there are many ways to represent data outside of attractive pie-charts and graphs.
Turn your data over to your designer to be converted into an infographic. Make sure that your website is incorporated into the design. You’ll want to use the infographic for back-linking purposes.
Followers want to see that you are a real, live person, not a faceless brand with which they’re doing business. They want to see your thoughts and your suggestions and learn more about you as a person. Consumers care less about the money and more about the relationship.
Take the time to develop and nurture the relationship you have with your consumer base. Show them the real you, and how you arrived at your current destination.
Pictures are powerful. Consider the previous point and be sure to post pictures of your daily life. Followers want to see the real, unfiltered life you live. Share your daily routine with your consumers, on a regular basis so that they know who you are and what you’re doing.
Mind Your Manners
Being polite and courteous go a long way. Even though we may not give these words a second thought, the person we offer them to will remember them. When someone shares your post, make sure you thank them. If you need something from someone, make sure you ask them with a please.
The harsh reality is that you and your business are going to be criticized. It comes with the territory of being truthful. Respond positively to critique. Allow it to be an opportunity for learning and growth. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe, but have an open mind that you might be in the wrong. Followers will notice how you respond.
This is social media after all, isn’t it? You’re connect with thousands (if not more) of people from around the world in an instant, something never before possible in the history of our species. We have information about anything available at our fingertips. Enjoy what you’re doing. Have fun with it!
Don’t be afraid to try something new or unique when it comes to your social media accounts. It may not work, but followers will see that you’re willing to take a chance on something innovative. Sure you might fall flat on your face, but there’s also the possibility that you’ll succeed.
Be Responsive and Respectful
Responding to comments on posts isn’t always the easiest thing to do. Some people simply want to watch the world burn. Be respectful to everyone. Sometimes it’s not the easiest thing to do, but it is the right thing. And as mentioned previously, followers and customers will see how you react, and the correct response now may lead to additional business in the future.
Trust is something you earn, not something that’s given. Your followers put their trust in you because they see the real you and the way you handle everyday life. Use the trust and loyalty others have in you to develop relationships and provide your customers a great experience.
If you’re trying to choose the right plan, these 2 questions should help. I know doing this online business can be a bit confusing at times, can’t it?!
There are a lot of different ways teaching us to make a living out there. Some good, some ok, and many terrible.
What can help cut through the clutter and reveal the real GEMS to you?
Two quick things…
1. There’s a saying, “The proof is in the pudding.”
Which basically means, what’s the end result? What results are people already USING this system getting?
(Needs to be reputable, as some talk bad of other systems they’ve never even tried, just so they can push theirs.)
2. And this #2 is a big one: Does it make sense?
If it makes zero sense to you, and either it’s so vague you can’t understand it, or nobody is willing to explain it to you…
Then I’d recommend you steer clear of that offer like it’s infected with the bird flu.
This may or may not make sense for you? But I’ve done my own due diligence.
I’ve simply chosen to leverage this system because of the following two resons:
#1) It has proven results.
It’s paid out over $104 million in commissions alone to average folks, just like you and me. (Check out the leaderboard results here)
#2) It simply makes sense.
It’s hard to make a good living, and have a lifestyle friendly business, with low end commissions. You can’t get enough paid traffic to really make it work, especially with ad costs on the rise these days.
Getting up to $10K commissions totally changed the game for me.
It allows you to afford more to get new leads and sales, so you can work less, and you can earn much, much more. Simple enough, right?
Georg Kerschhackl was born into a humble family in the southern part of Austria. He saw his dad work long hours to provide for his family. He started down the same path only to realize that he was living his father’s life. So after 15 years he decided to move to Vienna to start over.
After many years of working hard, Georg wanted to find a way to have more time to spend with his children.
That is when Georg discovered MOBE.
Learning from and being surrounded by the best in the business, he was able to make $30,000 in commissions.
