Customer Centric Culture – The Trust Factor What is it that successful business people get about being “customer centric”? A not so subtle element of doing business today has to do with Trust. My conversations with other international traders most always mention trust in the conversation. How do I trust the people I’m doing business with? How do I trust the product that is being presented? “If building relationships is the key to sales success, then trust is the foundation.” The answer is in building relationships. Markethive enhances relationship building through social interaction. The perfect “Social Marketing” environment Stephen Hodgkiss, in his article How to Create a Customer-Centric Culture states, “The companies that get it are customer-centric. They put the customer at the heart of decisions, ideas, marketing, system design and more.”   Posted by Stephen Hodgkiss on August 03, 2015 – 2:53am https://markethive.com/stephenhodgkiss/blog/how-to-create-a-customercentric-culture#.VcS0BJO350w They Build Trust I have included a 2007 article by Barry Farber that addresses the Trust Factor successfully. “Win your customers’ faith by learning the 5 key components of trust.” This story first appeared in the March 2007 issue of Entrepreneur. The Trust Factor If building relationships is the key to sales success, then trust is the foundation. Ask any top sales performer what factors contribute to their success, and you’ll hear that building trust is vital in their dealings with customers. But how do you build trust? Usually, it’s the little things you do over time that make the difference. I call this establishing the T.R.U.S.T. factor. The following five strategies will help you form strong relationships and long-term success with not just your customers, but also everyone you surround yourself with. 1. Truth: We can do many things to lose business: not deliver on time, not communicate effectively, not follow up. But from your customers’ point of view, lying is the number-one way to lose their trust and business forever. I’ve been in many situations where I know that the answer I give the customer will jeopardize the sale, but I’ve found that sometimes you lose the battle and end up winning the war. In the long run, you’ve built your relationships around being bone-honest–which also happens to be one of the top traits that high achievers throughout history have had in common. 2. Reliability: Here’s where the T.R.U.S.T. factor starts getting built. Every time you get back to the customer with the information he’s (more…)

Today’s culture seriously lacks integrity, albeit, good intentions still abound, but dedicated follow up and the bond of the handshake and a man’s/woman’s word have suffered almost total collapse these days. [This is a comment on the above post on Markethive.net by Tom Prendergast]   Business Relationships Today TRUST Need Versus Desire today’s default definition of Entrepreneur and how to use public relations As a business owner, marketer or copywriter your job is to build desire in the customer regardless of the product or service you are selling. As an online mlm entrepreneur you need to ensure that there is the potential in your selected product to create this desire. This is based on the premise that the consumer can’t control their own desires. People want to trust the person they are hiring. People want to know a quality job will be done. People want to know it will be done quickly and that the plumber will be on time. Just replace the word want for desire and you can see what I mean. Normally, whatever your business you would create and focus the desires that will be more successful. BS, this is nonsense unless you want to be in business for 3 months. This article addresses the 3 month rule and the historic cyclical process. This is pure “DESIRE” marketing, first identified and implemented by Edward Bernays a nephew of Sigmund Freud. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Century_of_the_Self What I call “Desire marketing” is old hat and becoming not workable and not acceptable. In the world of today’s social media, the amazing search tools and the availability of instantaneous transmission of information to any place in the world this methodology is being recognized for what it is and is fading out of reliability. The business marketing world uses psychological techniques to read, create and fulfill the desires of the public, to make their products or speeches as pleasing as possible to consumers and citizens because you “can’t control your desires” and they can help you recognize and provide for your desires. I question of the real intentions and roots of this objective. Where once the Entrepreneurial process was about engaging people’s rational, conscious minds, as well as facilitating their needs as an individual and as a society, the 3 month rule shows how by employing the tactics of psychoanalysis, mlm marketing appeals to irrational, primitive impulses that have little apparent bearing on issues outside (more…)
