Company reputation: what is it built on? 

The short answer? Trust.

Building trust using transparency as a foundation ensures your reputation is genuine. It also makes sure it’s strong enough to weather the tides of change. Competitive attacks and industry crises will also not affect a company reputation built on trust. 

Building trust through transparency is essential because it:

Boosts Consumer Confidence

Messaging that is open, honest and consistent, conveys your commitment to the customer. It is important to increasing confidence in your brand. This is the undercurrent of trust that generates appeal and cultivates loyalty among your target audience.

Setting consistently high expectations when it comes to product, service and operational transparency gives consumers a reason to interact with your brand. It also helps to reinforce the positive image you need to keep existing customers coming back for more.

Attracts Quality Employees

Talented workers can be hard to find—and even harder to retain. But when you develop an image and culture centered on transparency, you’re far more likely to recruit and hold onto the employees you need to operate, innovate and grow in the future.

Building a reputation on the principles of transparency shows quality prospects you have nothing to hide, and helps provide an accurate portrayal of what to expect from a career with your firm. And when you attract the right people, your business is better positioned for long-term success.

Improves Brand Engagement

These days, everyone—from prospects and customers to employees and stakeholders—is engaging with your brand online. And if you’re maintaining a digital presence built on transparency, you’re far more likely to inspire the interest and engagement your business needs to build trust, relevancy, authority and visibility on the web.

Building a Trustworthy Brand

A transparent brand is crucial to building trust, attracting customers and acquiring the talent your business needs to thrive.

But to build trust through transparency, it’s important to know where to start.

Education. Going beyond traditional marketing to educate on your products, services, processes and community involvement provides your audience crucial insight into who you are and the value you offer.

Consistency. When you convey a consistent message across all online platforms, you cultivate the clarity and reliability your business needs to connect with consumers.

Intelligent Growth. Smart, data-based digital marketing strategies allow you to expand your online impact without endangering connections with your target market.
