Building Trust and Credibility on Twitter

twitter logo Building Trust and Credibility on Twitter

Twitter is the Internet’s version of SMS only more diverse. Save for the succinct 140 characters, Twitter gradually occupies the users’ mind space not only because it is public, but also because of its inherent linking capacity. Unfortunately, Twitter had become a haven for hackers and spammers where they can accomplish devious goals. Despite this, how can legitimate tweeters build trust and credibility on the microblogging site? Answers are explored below.

Arianna Huffington, the founder of the biggest blog, Huffington Post, has these to say about Twitter.

1) Self-expression is the new entertainment.
Twitter is a place where users can display substance and encourage conversation whether it be an image, video or article. This means that, in cultivating trust among your followers, you should be a responsible Twitter user. Make sure that, despite the limited number of characters, you are tweeting contents that others can regard as an informative resource. Contents can be a source of inspiration, too.

Tweet about your company, its people, your products and services. Don’t overdo it though. Make sure there are personal messages aside from brand-related tweets. Certainly, the Twitterers would want to know who is behind those tweets. Put a short bio with an image. Establish authority. The process of letting your followers know who you are also develops trust. The more relatable you are, the more trustworthy you become.

Top 4 eCommerce Website Designs Tips for Increasing Conversions

ecommerce web design Top 4 eCommerce Website Designs Tips for Increasing ConversionsSometimes online stores get too artsy with their website designs. Some use color schemes that can send wrong signals to the shoppers, while others use flash animations that slows down the browser of the shopper. Creating these elements make a website look very attractive but resolve the usability issues which are of utmost importance for increasing conversions.

Here are four tips on how to turn visitors into potential customers and increase your conversion rates by using simple design strategies.

Make your shopping cart visible
When a consumer adds a product to the cart, he/she wants to have the peace of mind that the product was actually registered. Thus, somewhere on the page during the shopping process, your online store must have an area listing the number of products in the consumer’s cart and other useful checkout information. Having the checkout data readily available and visible even helps ease the transition to check out from online shopping. No matter where the consumer finishes shopping, it is essential to have a link back to the checkout page. However, it is not enough to have shopping cart information on the page. It must pop so that it is easier to find.

Optimize the ‘add to cart’ button
Customers and visitors to the site have been seen to respond differently to action buttons. For example, very few people respond to action buttons that says, learn more, more details or read more. Customers hardly react to indirect add-to-cart buttons. What I have experienced is, call to action buttons that says buy now or get started elicit more positive response from online shoppers. Coloring is even an essential design element. Use colors, which flow with the color scheme of your website.
