A recent article, 4 Ways to Make Your New Business Look Legitimate by Julie Chomiak says that new businesses have a lot of things to do from creating their products or services to getting customers to trust your company.
Here are four ways to build business credibility and earn more customers.
1. Have a designated phone number and email address.
Whether you lease commercial office space for your new business or are working remotely, you should have a dedicated business phone number and email address. You can hire a virtual receptionist to answer calls “live” in your company’s name to create a positive impression for your business. The same goes for your email address, you should have a dedicated email address to legitimize your business and infuse trust in your potential customers.
2. Have an updated website.
Nowadays, consumers are using online research before making purchases, so it’s necessary to have an updated small business website incorporating the basics – product information, hours, directions, and means of contact. An updated website communicates your legitimacy to your visitors.
3. Accurate Google listing and local search listings
Having an accurate Google listing and local search listings are necessary for people to discover your business online. Ensure that your business hours, address, phone number, website, and business description are updated.
4. Get into your local community and network!
Business is all about relationships, and by building relationships with local business owners, they can refer customers to you and be open to partnerships and collaboration. For a new business, this is a win win.
