Duration - 60 minutes

Key Takeaways

  • Utilize trust badges on your site, as they are highly effective in building customer trust and can significantly increase conversions. Consider partnerships with trusted shops or sites to enhance your credibility.
  • Social proof is crucial at every touchpoint, especially at the checkout. Display trust signals prominently on every page to constantly remind customers of your trustworthiness and the quality of your products.
  • In times of uncertainty, trust signals become even more important. Regularly test and optimize these signals in your checkout process to ensure they are effective.
  • Use well-placed micro-copy to remove potential friction points and obstacles in the checkout process. The right wording can give users peace of mind and encourage them to move forward.
  • Provide immediate feedback, both positive and negative, during the checkout process. This can help users correct errors and feel reassured when they've done something right, improving their overall experience.
