Create a brand personality and generate trust
Building trust takes time, it can be created through numerous touch-points and establishing relationships. In the window and construction industry, PR is the most powerful method to deliver news and information that produces a brand personality and illustrates trust.
A common mistake made by many businesses is confusing marketing with lead generation. Customer and client trust can’t be achieved if your whole marketing strategy is concentrated on sales-ready leads. Producing trust begins much earlier in the process, way before the homeowner is ready to buy. When homeowners actively engage with your brand in a non-sales environment and have a positively rememberable experience, they are much more likely to buy from your business when it’s the right timeframe for them to be looking for home improvements.
Nevertheless, it’s not to say that lead generation isn’t important in the business model, it is crucial. But building a successful, sustainable and valuable company begins with trust. That’s why you need a marketing strategy that creates a trusted brand that works in parallel to a robust lead generation strategy.
In a competitive B2C market, double glazing and conservatory installers have to work harder than ever before to build trust to position them ahead of their competitors. This is because the purchase is often a one-off and the industry has a tarnished reputation. This wider influence is exacerbated by high profile failures, like the recent Safeglazo fiasco and the current question marks regarding some Insurance Backed Guarantees.
