You know you have to find a way to get your site visitors to have some trust in you, but caution is necessary if you surf around the net looking for information on doing it. Yes, gaining trust from your traffic can be a tricky undertaking, but we can still get you there or on your way, at least.
Everybody in business on the net knows all too well how easy it is to get lost and never to be noticed. If you really want your readers to understand who you are and trust you then you need to go beyond the regular 'About Us' content and add some real pictures of yourself with it. If you've got a team then publish a group photo of all the team members or you can even go a step further and snap pictures of your workplace so that you can publish them on your website. People like knowing who they are dealing with, and even if you think it is a dumb idea - it is not. There is never any guarantee that people will even believe the pictures you put up, but not everybody is so cynical on the net.
The kind of content that you publish on your website does play a role when it comes down to winning the trust of your visitors. We hope this is a totally obvious point, but nobody will stay with you for long if your content is low quality. Always make sure that the content that you're giving away on your website should be valuable. You can seriously hurt your reputation in your niche by becoming known as somebody who cannot be trusted because your content misses the mark. They have to be able to grasp what you are telling them, and that all goes back to talking to them in their language. Never do your research at the article directories because that is where every other lazy marketer does theirs.
If your sites do not have a means by which your visitors can get in touch with you, then that is a very good reason why things are misfiring. For the very best impression possible, get a cheap 800 number and give that out to your visitors. The funny thing about this is there's an excellent chance nobody will ever call. This is just good public relations, really, and sure if someone needs help and they call, then take care of them - no big deal. But you should go beyond everything to separate yourself from this shady crowd of Internet marketers and webmasters.
Working on positive relationships with your niche market that result in solid trust in you can be difficult and take time. All businesses need goals, and acquiring trust is a worthwhile goal, but you do need real goals that work with your business.
