It’s a fact! A person’s reputation directly affects their success.
If you are credible then people will have faith in your products and services and they will buy from you and recommend you to others.
If you are not credible then they won’t.
So keeping that in mind, here are some ways to help establish your credibility online.
Credibility Builder # 1: Establish Trust From The Beginning
Part of gaining credibility is building trust between your customers and yourself.
So always give honest, accurate information and make sure that you are able to back it up.
Nothing will destroy credibility faster than not being able to back up what you say!
Credibility Builder # 2: Follow Through With Promises
Whether you’re offering a sale, special pricing, are releasing a new product, or there’s some other promise you’ve made; do your best to always honor it.
Another important part of fulfilling promises is to stand firm on your rules.
If you promise to only sell 50 licenses of a particular product and it has sold out then don’t sell more.
If you have a sale that is only good through Thursday and people contact you on Friday wanting to get the sale price, stand firm, apologize and say no.
While they may not be happy, they will know that you keep your promise to your customers.
Credibility Builder # 3: Show People That You Care For Them And Have Respect For Them
Show that you care for the people who support what you do and that you have respect for them.
Listen to what your followers and customers say and then acknowledge their concerns and respect their opinions.
While you cannot please everyone and may not be able to meet every demand, if you show that you care about your people, your credibility will increase.
Credibility Builder # 4: Get Customer And Client Testimonials
Customer and client testimonials can help you establish credibility.
People want to see proof that something is good and since you are the business owner, they won’t take your word for it.
That’s why displaying testimonials from satisfied customers goes a long way towards building credibility.
Audio and video testimonials are much more effective than written ones.
Credibility Builder # 5: Be A Person Of Action
Don’t be a fence sitter!
Do you know what I mean by that?
It means if you believe in something then let it be known and stand behind it.
Sitting atop the proverbial fence may make your people around you question your methods.
How can you sell them on an idea if you don’t even know what you believe?
Credible people stand by their ideas even when they are unconventional.
Credibility Builder # 6: Show The World You’re Passionate About What You Do
Have passion about what you’re doing.
If you are enthusiastic about your products and services others will be too.
Your affiliates, friends and family, co-workers, partners and others will feed off of your enthusiasm and passion and in turn spread it to others.
If you’re shy use the written word to share your passion.
Your Credibility Translates Into Dollars!
Success & Blessings!
