Trust is an essential factor in the selection process for customers. From the moment they let strangers into their house when they wave them goodbye when you are driving away with their belongings, to when they finally meet you again at the final destination. For this reason, not only will your reputation matter but also the personal connection you create with them in the early stages. Here are two ways to help you build a connection with your potential customers:
1. Put a face to the name – include a section on your website where you show a picture of each member of your team
2. Publish short introduction videos – let the members of your team introduce themselves
Allowing them to meet your team will create that extra personal connection before they even meet them in person!
