It's not hard to build trust if you have a brand name that everyone has heard of. This isn't easy for a solo entrepreneur, however.

Smaller operations must make the most of the resources they have to build trust with their audience. You just have to be ready to work at this goal over a long period of time.

There are certain behaviors with those who cannot be trusted that set off red flags with people. For instance, you will become suspicious of people that make things look too easy. In the same sense, we all have imperfections, so simply be yourself, and stop trying to act perfect. There's no need to cover up anything - if you make a mistake, admit it, and move on. What will cause people to not trust you, especially in business, is to try to cover-up mistakes.

I've given mini rants about business owners who do not provide any means for contacting them.

Or, maybe they have a support ticket system and an outsourced VA gets back to you at some point. Unless a company is very large, it's usually counterproductive to outsource support and not communicate directly with people. When people on a marketing list are unable to make contact with the list owner, then that really just looks bad. This suggests that the list owner is only interested in making money but not in communicating with people. A marketer who takes the time to reply to emails personally is doing much more to create trust than one who remains invisible or aloof.

Lighten up a little bit when dealing with your prospects and customers. If you're always thinking about work and the daily grind, you may need to inject a little play and humor to your attitude. So maybe be creative and try something different like making every Friday special in some way. Humor is always a good icebreaker, and it helps make people feel more at ease. Readers will take pleasure in this, and it will make your site a little different. Your readers may join in the fun and leave replies as well. Over time, people will feel more connected to you and your site and this builds trust as well.

Business making use of The Big Bang Theroy season 6 episode 2 will identify with those feelings very well.
