7 reasons why people buy a product or service and 6 ways to build trust

26th November 2018

All the way from Sydney, Australia Steve Manning writes about the same theme that we talk about over here in the UK. Why people buy and what can we do to help them buy off us and our competitor?

We believe that there are generally more than one reason that people buy. Steve lists seven reasons and I agree with all of them.

However, with a focus on B2B any one of the seven reasons coupled with building trust will improve your chances of getting your potential customer to buy off you.

In a recent post we gave six ways to build trust and now with Steve’s seven reasons to buy you might just have something that may work for you.
