How to thrive in the new trust economy

Trust is a tenuous, yet powerful thing. It’s the glue that holds business relationships together; the lure that keeps pulling your customers back. When you get it right, it opens up new opportunities for growth and success. Yet when you get it wrong … well, it doesn’t bear thinking about, does it? 

Gaining and maintaining trust is one of the most important things any business can do today. While there’s always been a direct correlation between customer trust and the bottom line, it takes on a different shape as we move further into the digital age. As face-to-face interactions become scarce, video calls soar, and many consumer experiences pivot to digital, the way that businesses gain customers’ trust is changing. And those that get it right will reap the rewards. 

It’s why we’ve entered the age of the trust economy. No longer can you win on the quality of your product alone. In fact, according to research from Salesforce, up to 85% of B2B buyers and 79% of consumers say their experience in interacting with a brand is just as important as the products or services the brand offers. 

The businesses that can build trust from afar – in other words, via digital channels – will thrive in this economy. Question is, how do you get there? To get your answers to this big question, join us at our upcoming webinar, The Business of Trust. Trust us, it promises to be huge.
