Your credibility is one of the keys to profitability. You don’t purchase products or services from people or businesses you don’t trust, and neither does anybody else. Research confirms that consumers make purchasing decisions much quicker if they trust the people and businesses they are purchasing from. In addition, polls indicates that consumers will not only purchase more products and services from people they trust, but they will pay more money for those same products and services purchased from those people and businesses.

 Promote Your Credibility and Attract New Customers

What this means is that by promoting your credibility you can not only attract new customers, but help entice your existing customers to purchase more of your products and services. New customers and more purchases from existing customers will add money to your bottom line and increase your profitability.

Online business directories that display customer reviews and personal recommendations are booming.
