Assuming your products or services are priced competitively and are
of good quality, your most significant sales barrier is trust. Trust is the essential lubricant of Web business; without trust, business grinds to a halt.
An established store brand name derives from hundreds of positive
impressions built by continuous expensive advertising campaigns. These ads
purchase brand trust over time. But when you're a small business you can't afford
such expensive advertising campaigns. Nevertheless, you can build trust through your
website in multiple ways. First, anchor your business in time and space
by displaying your full address and phone number. If you have an office or
brick-and-mortar store, show a photograph of it on your web page. Better yet, show photos of
yourself and your staff. Now your customers will view you as real people
rather than some faceless cyber entity from who-knows-where.
You also build trust by selling big brand name products, by
displaying clear shipping and return policies, by displaying your membership of
nationally-respected organizations, and by offering personal guarantees. You
will also build trust with a customer friendly navigation system on your web site and an easy to use
interface. Add SSL secure server for credit card transactions to ensure trusted e-purchases. You
gain credibility by having a professionally designed site, rather than
something your teenage son developed over the weekend.
Once you've established trust, sales result. You can also build trust by
repeated contact with your visitors.
