Companies don’t define brands — people do.
But as emotionally driven beings, people can sometimes make mistakes — ones that directly influence business. Unfortunately, if these mistakes aren’t handled properly, trust, reputation, and brand are diminished.
But what builds brand trust, to begin with? And what can we do to create the loyalty and consistency that promotes brand forgiveness when that trust has been broken?
Back on today’s episode are Kurt Bartolich, Founder of BrandCertain, and Cory Scheer, Founder of Trust Centric Consulting. Kurt and Corey teamed up to explore the relationships between employees and companies, as well as brands and consumers.
Today Kurt and Corey break down the initial findings of The National Survey on Brand and Trust and what it means for your business. They share the data that defines precisely how vital trust is and how you can genuinely build it. They also explain how organizations are constantly interacting with trust (whether building or breaking it down and learning). They also share how to establish a foundation of trust and why you must build a brand from the inside out.
Join Kurt, Cory, and me to learn:
• Why trust is so important to customer experience
• What one of the best and easiest ways to build trust inside your organization is
• What three brand truths are backed up in the research data
• How and when brand forgiveness takes place
• Why consistency is the bedrock for loyalty
