Are you searching for ways to build trust with your clients?
Trust is the invisible currency that drives business growth, especially for B2B and B2C service-based business owners.
So how do you “automate” trust through email marketing? Is it even possible?
Absolutely, and this blog post will show you how.
Automate the Collection of Testimonials
People trust what others say about you more than what you say about yourself. And this is a key strategy for how you build trust with your clients. Utilise automated email sequences to request testimonials from satisfied clients.
Create an automated email that triggers after a successful project or sale. Keep it short, personalised, and offer an easy way for clients to submit their testimonials. These could then be integrated into your promotional emails, establishing immediate credibility with new leads.
Case studies are the unsung heroes of email automation. A well-documented case study can be a powerful tool in your email marketing arsenal. Not only does it prove your worth, but it also provides a roadmap for success for prospective clients.
Use automated emails to request permission to create case studies from successful client projects. Then create an email sequence that introduces these case studies to new leads, showing them the journey from problem to resolution.
Fortnightly Newsletters Outperform Monthly Ones
The key to maintaining and building trust through email marketing is consistent and valuable communication. Fortnightly newsletters strike a balance between providing useful content and not overwhelming your clients.
Shift your monthly or bi-monthly newsletters to a fortnightly schedule. Use A/B testing to find the right balance of frequency and content to optimise trust-building.
Bonus Strategy: The Underutilised Power of Internal Newsletters
If you’re part of a larger team, don’t underestimate the value of internal communications in building trust. A monthly staff newsletter can build a cohesive, trustworthy team, which directly translates into better customer relations.
Initiate a monthly internal newsletter that celebrates team accomplishments, shares company news, and recognises individual contributions. A team that trusts each other extends that trust to clients.
