Oct 15 WECafé | Build Back with Trust @ Webinar

Trust goes beyond posting signs about handwashing (though that’s important too!). Every interaction is an opportunity to build relationships and nurture trust, and your brand must work to earn it.

As the province re-opens, consumers as a whole are cautious. Are they physically safe, will products ship on time, can they get the supplies they need, will services get interrupted, will activities get canceled?

On October 15, join Women’s Enterprise Centre for a chat with Karla Laird from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) who will share tips and insights you can use to help customers feel confident doing business with you, such as:

  • The trust barometer and how it sways consumer behaviour
  • Consumer trust before and during COVID-19
  • BBB’s Eight Standards for Trust
  • Practical ways to rebuild trust in your everyday customer interactions

When a business owner is asked about their marketing strategy, too many think about their website, ads or word of mouth.

All those things are a part of marketing, but they are not strategy. They are tactics. Tactics are only as effective as the strategy behind them—the WHY of marketing.

This practical webinar guides you through the process of building a sound marketing strategy for your business to reveal the tactics that make the most sense for your motivation, market and money.
