Shoppers Look for Trust Signals before They Buy
Shoppers Look For Trust Signals Before They Buy
In a recent survey, nearly 1,700 people from the US, the UK, and Australia were asked what they thought were the most important trust signals in determining whether or not to buy from a website.
According to the survey, 82% said they are more likely to buy if a website displays Positive Ratings and Reviews, and 76% said they are more likely to buy if a website displays a Security Seal on their checkout.
These two trust signals are vital to any e-commerce business’s success, and if you don’t have them, then you are really missing out.
If there’s any company in the world that understands the importance of these two trust signals, and how they work together to significantly increase online traffic, clicks, and conversions, it’s Trust Brands.
At Trust Brands, we’ve specialized in both ratings and reviews and online security for nearly 15 years. Shopper Approved® is one of the largest rating and review platforms in the world, and Trust Guard® protects thousands of businesses and millions of consumers from hackers every single day.
From a business owner’s perspective, Shopper Approved provides the Social Proof necessary to get customers to the checkout page, and Trust Guard closes the sale.
You need both products to really maximize your results - especially right now with the COVID-19 issues putting everyone on a high-security alert.
Now more than ever, cybercriminals are working overtime trying to hack sites, skim credit cards, and hold websites hostage for ransom demands.
In fact, here are some recent news articles from major publications…
Bottom line, if you don’t have a highly trusted Security Seal, like the Trust Guard Checkout Seal on your checkout page to alleviate your customer’s security concerns - especially right now, then you’re potentially missing out on 20% or more sales that are being lost to cart abandonment due to a perceived lack of security.
When combined, Shopper Approved and Trust Guard will increase your online visibility, your traffic, and your conversion rate more than any other product on the market.
Here’s what some of our clients have to say...
