Know,Like,Trust Elements of Success
We’ve all heard the words know,like,trust but do we really do whatever we can to implement these 3 critical factors of success?
All of us have to work hard to build and maintain relationships both in life and in business.
People always respect and admire authenticity so even if you’re a brand new blogger or online marketer, by simply being yourself you can and will make a huge impact on your audience.
Face to face salespeople have known all about this know, like, trust combination for years and building rapport is a key element of all good sales training.
However, content marketers are still coming to grips with this critical aspect of relationship building. In fact many are simply assuming (incorrectly I might add) that the more content they create the bigger their audience will become.
Nothing could be further from the truth
Creating content without really considering the needs of your target audience is no better than being confronted by fast talking sales people – both types repel us.
Let me ask you – in your life have you really achieved the success you were seeking?
Can you recall moments where you may have failed even just a little bit with any of the know, like and trust factors?
Let’s be honest we all have at some time.
The thing is have we learned from these past mistakes?
These most definitely are the 3 key elements of success both in life and in business.
If any one of these elements is missing then your chances of success is extremely limited.
Of the 3 key factors, the one that takes most time to develop is “TRUST”
So Who Would You Do Business With?
Let’s say there were 2 people vying for your order.
One was simply lacking in personality, boring and somewhat aloof whilst the other was interesting, entertaining, personable and made you feel good
Which one would you rather do business with?
People buy people not products so obviously the person who could relate more to you would win your attention (and most likely your order).
It doesn’t matter how well known you are. If you want to convert prospects into customers then you MUST at least be likeable. All part of the know, like, trust triple treat!
