Virtual Conference: Digital Marketing
DAY 1 | ALL TIMES IN CT
Opening Keynote | Authentic: The Truth Sells
Trust is the lifeblood of sustainable (and profitable) customer relationships. Unfortunately, today’s age of bias and misinformation has created a trust problem for marketers. People no longer know where (or whom) to turn to for reliable information, and it is getting worse.
The 2023 Edelman Trust Barometer found that trust in U.S. for businesses was at 55%. The 2023 PwC U.S. Trust Survey found that 84% of business leaders think customers highly trust their companies when only about 27% of consumers do. That’s a 57-point gap!
Why is this important? Trust is a powerful motivator for consumer behavior. Do what you say. Say what you do. Only then will your customers truly trust you.
- An understanding of why trust is essential in building killer brands
- An actionable framework to develop credibility with their audiences and accelerate revenue
- Tangible examples of successful implementation of frameworks
