    • How to gain trust?Gaining the trust of new customers is always a challenge, especially through an onlinebusiness. But Shawn has found a way of building that trust before an order is made throughpromotions and product reviews. Not only are customers are allowed to add testimonials andreviews on their website, Facebook page, and Amazon.com, but they strongly encourage it as itshowcases real life application and usefulness. They regularly hear from new customers howthese reviews have positively impacted perceptions, buying behavior, and have sparkedconsumer interest.© 2011 Apptivo Inc. All rights reserved.
    • In 2011, Shawn Trautman Instructions launched a survey to all customers and got an 87%response listing Customer Review as their #1 reason for choosing Shawn Trautman Instruction.Why Trust is ImportantAt the end of the day, if the customers don’t trust Shawn Trautman brand for all it stands for,then they’ve wasted their time and effort and have failed as an organization that survivesbecause of reputation and brand recognition. Trautman knows that if they begin by meeting theexpectations of their customers, the move forward with the small things to truly delight theircustomers and exceed their expectations, they will be well on their way to building a strongbrand and an increased bond wit those that engage with their products. Their goal is to create atrue “raving fans,” so to speak, knowing that everything else will follow. Anyone can create aproduct or service that customers are “satisfied” with, but it’s all about creating one that theircustomers are “loyal” to. This may lead to repeat purchases and strong word-of-mouthadvertising, but the personal relationships that they develop are invaluable.Developing trust means going through all the intangibles outside of the product. Whether apersonal follow-up phone call, email, or some other engagement strategy, it’s the service leveland intangibles that create the magical moments with customers and allows businesses to grow.© 2011 Apptivo Inc.
