The Design::

The Design: The design of your website forms the first impression of our business. How your website looks can influence the consumer’s buying decision. Would you ever enter a retail store that has a strange odour coming out from the entrance, a crooked marquee sign at the top of the façade and a dusty outdated display. Probably not. The same goes with websites. It can be difficult for consumers to trust a website that is inappropriately designed and looks unorganised. If you lack technical expertise, you can hire a professional designer to create a business website that is intriguing, functional and evokes a sense of trust and professionalism.

Accessibility:

Accessibility Providing your contact details and, of course, an easy way to use them to get in touch with you, is paramount to building trust with your customers. By stating legible contact information on your website, you not only provide customers different mediums to reach you but also convey the message that you are a reputable business that actually wants their customers to contact them for any assistance.

Stay Up-to-date:

Stay Up-to-date In addition to creating a professional, well-organised web design and providing proper contact information, it is essential to keep your website updated. Make sure all the content and information on your website is up-to-date. This includes product descriptions, contact information, shipping details, website blog and other web contents generated for user. Your website must not contain any outdated information that can confuse or mislead visitors and affect your business integrity.

The Takeaway:

These strategies will go a long way to instil trust in your website and hence your business. Moreover, working with a certified online brand reputation management professional will help you regularly track your website reputation. This will allow you to determine required changes in your website to keep it highly secure and credible for customers to use.
