7 Requirements for Creating Online Trust
Take a look at your website, and ask yourself these simple questions. The answers relate directly to your trustworthiness online.
- How well is your site designed?
Poorly designed sites cause concern in web visitors!
- Is your content well written, designed, and presented professionally?
Content that is poorly written, or full of typos, suggests your are not professional!
- Is your business information clear and easily found?
Structure and navigation are keys to showing you know what you are doing!
- Do you have detailed “About Us” and “Contact Us” pages?
Incomplete information about your business suggests you have something to hide!
- Do you have industry “Trust Seals” verifying your business?
This tells your visitors that you are not real, that you may have something to hide!
- Do you have positive reviews of your business?
Reviews are important, they tell visitors that they are not the first to buy from you!
- If you have social media pages, are they relevant and updated?
Just having social media pages is useless unless there is a commitment, better not to have them if you can’t maintain them!

There are a billion websites out there, and the sad fact is that a significant percentage are fraudulent or disreputable. How is your any different?
From the first interaction, to first lead form or sale, to referral businesses – customers who trust you feel more confident, and will interact, transact, and refer more.
