Consumer says trust is their deciding factor in online shopping

Consumer says trust is their deciding factor in online shopping

Did you know social media commerce platforms have an 85% trust rating?

Why is this relevant?

Because in a survey result shared by Digital Commerce 360, trust is the deciding factor in ecommerce transactions. What’s more interesting is that trust issues among shoppers weren’t the same as those of sellers.

🖊️ Here are the key findings of the study:

  • Trust issues of shoppers. The main cause of distrust is financial fraud, victimizing 75% of consumers. This is followed by delivery delays (61%), lost payments due to glitches (55%), and frequently receiving damaged goods (42%).
  • Trust issues of sellers. Only 35% of online sellers trust social marketplaces for inventory management, with 70% saying items they sold on social media marketplaces were not delivered in good condition. Other issues include the lack of delivery options (65%) and an overall lack of control over the state of goods (65%).
  • Trust is personal. Because social commerce provides a more personalized online experience than traditional ecommerce, the latter receives a lower trust rating (48%). Understandably, physical stores got a 70% trust rating as products are more easily judged when shopping in person. 🛒
  • Trust varies. 46% of Gen Z were comfortable with buying on social media. However, only 30% of millennials, 22% of Gen Xers, and 0% of baby boomers are willing to do the same.

What do these numbers mean?

Simple—if you plan on selling on social media marketplaces, you have to be reliable and credible. After all, winning customers’ trust is key to running an online business for a long time. 🗝️

4 steps to be a successful affiliate marketer

4 steps to be a successful affiliate marketer

If you’re just starting to build an online business this year, affiliate marketing is a solid starting point. And did you know you can easily do this even without a website?

But first, what’s affiliate marketing?

GetResponse defined affiliate marketing as endorsing products online in exchange for a commission. For instance, Amazon’s affiliate marketing program, Amazon Associates, gives as much as 10% in associate commissions. 💸

If you’re interested in starting this venture, all you need to do is follow these steps:

  • Find a niche. Marketing is easier if you target a specific group, such as teachers, young professionals, fashion enthusiasts, etc.
  • Publish quality content. Content is what keeps audiences coming back.
  • Join affiliate programs. Some pay per sale, while others pay per lead.
  • Add affiliate links. Add your designated affiliate links to your posts. Remember to be transparent about your affiliation to avoid trust issues.

🤔 Should big brand owners do affiliate marketing?

If you already have a proven and tested marketing scheme, you can just stick and polish it. But if you want to experience this marketing tactic, you can hire content creators and influencers as affiliates to promote your brand.
