Tricia Biz’s Insights for Building Online Credibility and Trust

Tricia Olufemi-Olumide, popularly known as TriciaBiz, is a Nigerian nine-figure marketing and sales expert and business fixer. 

If there is anyone who would give you credible advice on building online credibility and trust, she is one of them, judging from her exploits in the industry.

One of the many concerns in the hearts of every business owner and marketing executive in this era is how to convert their target audience into loyal advocates of the brand.

But the challenge lies in how. Most of the time, experts advise you to leverage content marketing, i.e., the consistent posting of quality content.

While that is right, the sales guru, TriciaBiz, believes that businesses should go beyond churning out quality content to having a solid service process.

What does she mean by a solid service process? Let’s look at the scenario she cited. Imagine you need a health service, and after putting up the information online, four vendors reached out to you.

  • Vendor 1 sent a DM listing her services and ended by saying she’s here to attend to you in 15 minutes
  • Vendor 2 sent a DM with just a product recommendation.
  • Vendor 3 listed out the tests you need to run and ended it there.
  • Vendor 4 listed out the tests to run and explained why they were important. She went further to explain the results anticipated and how to move forward after obtaining the results.

Out of the four vendors, who will you trust? The 4th vendor, of course, because she took her time to explain the process and its anticipated outcome to you.

As a business owner or marketing specialist in the digital space, you need to carry your audience along in your processes, so let’s look at how to create a solid service process.

How to Build Online Credibility and Trust Through a Solid Service Process 

1. Understand your target audience: Before you can build trust, you need to understand your target audience’s needs, pain points, and preferences. 

Conduct thorough market research and gather insights into what your audience is looking for, the challenges they face, and how your product or service can address those issues.

2. Provide value: Beyond just marketing your products or services, focus on providing genuine value to your audience. This could be through consistent quality educational content, helpful resources, or even interactive sessions like webinars and Q&A sessions.

3. Be transparent about your process. Explain to your customers what you will do for them, how you will do it, and why. This will help them understand your value proposition and build trust in your brand.

According to Aspiration Marketing, 92% of consumers are more likely to trust a transparent brand about its practices. 

4. Practice personalization: Tailor your interactions and offerings to individual customers whenever possible. Personalization makes customers feel valued and understood, fostering a sense of trust in your brand.

5. Be consistent in your delivery. Make sure that your customers have a consistent experience throughout the entire service process, from start to finish. This will help to build their confidence in your ability to deliver on your promises.

9. Use social proof to build trust: Showcase positive experiences from satisfied customers through testimonials and case studies. Real-life success stories demonstrate that your offerings deliver results and can be trusted.

10. Offer responsive customer support: Offer excellent customer support that is responsive and helpful. Be available through various channels like email, live chat, and social media. Promptly address customer inquiries and issues to build trust and reliability.
