Running a small online business is hard as is. Competing with the big e-commerce giants is an ongoing challenge. You can’t beat their huge marketing budgets. You can’t beat their unbelievably low prices.
But, one area where your small business can certainly beat them is trust.
But how do you build trust in the digital world?
That’s where content marketing comes into the picture!
Content is King. You’ve heard this phrase countless times. What does it really mean? How’s that relevant to your business?
Let’s spin that phrase.
At LS25 Web Design, we believe that “engaging content is king”.
By publishing engaging, compelling content, you can build credibility for your brand.
Why Build Trust?
Consumers buy from brands they trust. Research proves that. A PwC study found that 43% of consumers felt trust is an important criterion when buying from a brand.
In the online world, and especially for e-commerce businesses, building trust can be difficult given that your target audience can’t see or feel your products.
What is Content Marketing?
All that’s great. But what exactly is content marketing?
Content marketing is a strategy that focusses on publishing and distributing valuable and relevant content to attract, enlighten, inform and engage your target audience with the aim of propelling them to become your customers.
How Content Marketing Can Help Build Trust?
If your website is the primary point of interaction with your audience, you must use this space to enlighten them about your business, your mission and why they can trust you.
Truth is that telling your customers to trust you isn’t as effective as showing them.
Content marketing helps you do just that. Here’s how.
Build Trust, Grow Your Business
If your audience will never meet you in person, it is important to find ways to connect with them and build trust. Content marketing gives you that chance to build relationships and engage your audience while showing to them why they can trust you. That is much more valuable than any sales pitch. That’s the way to building a battalion of loyal customers.
