What is Brand Trust •  Trust is the most critical component in building and maintaining a strong, emotionally driven and enduring brand. •  Brand trust bond is based wholly on strong emotional connections as a result of the perceived shared values between the brand and the customer. •  Honesty, integrity, sincerity are the essential attributes that contribute and reinforce customer trust. This involves not only the amount and accuracy of information that is shared with customers, but also how sincerely and appropriately it is communicated.  •  Trusted brands have empathy, never fail customers and are transparent.   TRUST is a mutual confidence between two or more parties | #evolve24TRUST |
