I read a recent article about the Social Trust Factor and it provided some very good points that we all need to consider: http://tinyurl.com/7oynrpl
But, I would like to suggest that one more tip needs to be included. “show up”
By that, I mean that if you just continue to “show up” you will build a certain amount of trust, just because people know that you will be there. They hear your opinion, hear your voice, and you change from a stranger to a friend.
This could mean if you are a member of a group or team or organization, “show up”. Make it a point if at all possible to attend the meetings. Members of the team will learn to trust that you can be counted on to be there.
If you are doing a blog, or have a page on Facebook, or some other form of social media, make it a point to “show up”. Post regularly, (whatever that might be for you), and your readers will know that they can count on you to be there. You will become someone who they can count on to post.
Just being there, helps to develop trust.
What other ways do you suggest to develop trust.
