  • 2. Build Trusting Relationships With Your Customers To Boost Your Online Business Through this article, I would like to share with you the importance of building trust in your existing customers and tips on what builds trust in your relationships with your customers. One thing you need to know is that trust protects you in everything you do. To survive the competition in your online business, you need to position yourself as a trusted person. You can only build a trusting relationship with your customers when they feel connected and confident that you are the answer to their needs, interests, feelings and opinions. To build trust in them, you need to identify yourself with them as the best person to solve their problems and this takes time. Trust is built through experiences and overtime.
  • 3. Build Trusting Relationships With Your Customers To Boost Your Online Business Building trusting relationships in your customers requires you to be creative. Come up with new ways of maintaining your standards. You do not have to think so big because even small things can make a very big difference in your customers' lives. Make sure that whatever initiative you come up with, builds positive perceptions in the minds of your customers. What do you have to do to build trusting relationships with your customers? 1. Give free ideas and free advice. Sometimes it's even necessary to give free service and free products. This is an important aspect in any kind of business you are involved in. I always receive visitors on my websites, who in their comments wonder how on earth I can give free information on my websites. Probably, they are yet to learn that giving free ideas and advice through my articles, helps to build trusting relationships with my customers.

Remember that you can never succeed in any business if you are not honest. Always be honest! Commit yourself to deliver what you promise. Believe in your words and in your promises. Promising to do something to your customers and you don't deliver, is one of the fastest way of losing trust. If for any reason you are unable to live to your promises, it's important to let them know early enough. Maintaining the standard of service that you promise to your customers is one of the key ingredients in building trusting relationships with them.

This will help you to improve your service delivery. On various occasions, I have received advice and suggestions from my website visitors, through their comments, which has helped me to improve and to relate with them well. Remember that trust is built through interacting with your customers closely. Ask them questions and listen to them to build long lasting and trusting relationships with them.

Building a trusting relationship with each individual customer requires you to show them that you understand them as individuals. Get to know what is of importance to them and what motivates them. 5. Show a natural respect for your customers if you want them to trust you and to respect you. There is a saying that a "Customer is a King". Even when he misbehaves before you, you have to respond to him positively. You need to learn to respond proactively as opposed to being reactive.
  • 7. Build Trusting Relationships With Your Customers To Boost Your Online Business One day, I received a bad and demoralizing comment on one of my websites. Fortunately, I followed the link to the website, where the person who commented originated. I deliberately left a very positive and motivating comment on one of his posts. He ended up building positive perceptions about me. As we talk, he is one of my customers in one of the programmes I promote. Do you see how I ended up winning his trust in me? That's how you need to respect your customers irrespective of their behaviors, beliefs and opinions. Finally, I would like to remind you once again that building trusting relationships with your customers and communicating to them effectively helps you to build and to maintain strong relationships with your customers. The two marketing methods will believably help you to boost your online business. Do your customers trust you?
