There are always terrible stories being reported about people being scammed/dubbed by unscrupulous online markets/bloggers/retailers, making you stop and think before trusting anyone. From experience, this will definately take time before the arrows of fears leaves your surrounding.

However, you must understand clearly that Building trust online with your content is extremely beneficial. I believe that a trusting attitude and a patient attitude go hand in hand. You see, when you let go and learn to trust God, it releases joy in your life. And when you trust God, you're able to be more patient. Patience is not just about waiting for something... it's about how you wait, or your attitude while waiting.

Fear I believe is a marketer's worst enemy
The fear this kind of event has on your customers/ clients is going to affect your database, unless you can find a way to reassure them. Most times, activating discounts and low cost offers can help a lot.

Your content and marketing materials can usually counter most buying objections, but the one thing you can't easily counter is your buyer's hidden fear.

If people like you, they'll listen to you, but if they trust you, they'll do business with you. Zig Ziglar

Their fear could have been as a result of a bad sales experience, a poor performing product, or a scam. But whatever put it there did a great job because it's lodged firm festering away with the potential to ruin any chance you had of making a sale.

These people are most troubled in relation to:

· Loosing money

· Being take for a fool again, after the first experience

· Being made to feel stupid

They've been series of similar reports and this can be  long time problem. Every time they encounter a bad salesperson, or something goes wrong their fear grows making your job even harder.

How to practically battle the fear
The bad news is there isn't one single thing you can do to make the fear go away. However this can disappear over a long period.

Building trust takes time.
Trust can not be made over night. It takes time. You practically can't just make it happen, but there are several items you need to integrate to make it happen faster .

More so, it goes without saying that one of those is to ensure that your product or service lives up to your promises and that your customer service is second to none.

But if your business lives in the online world, you've got a lot of work to do before they even get to experience your sales process.

Generating trust online
When you can't meet and greet your customers, it can be tough to make them see your trustworthiness. Try ensuring that this is settled.

The first impression they get of you is from your website or landing page, so that's where you have to concentrate on making a good first impression.

Can we start with your domain name? Oh yes we can...
People are far more likely to trust a website that has its own domain name. So don't go with or, it looks unprofessional. That works for email addresses too.

A potential customer is far more likely to trust a company that uses a proper email address, i.e. George[at] than companyname[at]

Then it's important to fill your website with consistently high-value content, not only on your sales pages but your blog too.

In conclusion, ensure at all cost that your contact details are visible and real. That means a valid email address, telephone number and postal address. A company that hides behind a contact form is one that's hiding something - as far as potential clients are concerned.

On your customers' side
We understand how this things works and operate.  So, you are not alone. Overcoming ingrained fears isn't easy, but showing you're on your customers' side will go a long way.

I advice you to be optimistic no matter the situation/confined domain. Try and  open  up and  be honest at all times and provide  relevant information that will add value to your research. Building trust is a slow process, but when you get it right, those fears will disappear.
