What we recommend
To have a meaningful impact amongst the public and key stakeholders, it is necessary for organizations to take the time to develop and build trust with their audiences. While this should be a key objective of any organization, and those who have been focusing on this will be in a better position today, there is no time like the present to work this into your communications strategy.
To accomplish this, create a familiarity with key audiences by posting content frequently and sharing information from reputable experts in your field on relevant topics. Once trust has been earned it is crucial that it is maintained. As the saying goes, trust takes years to build, but seconds to lose. Continue this trust by providing a steady stream of clear, accurate, easy to understand information backed up by reputable sources.
By taking these steps, you are contributing something valuable and accurate to the public conversation, while also positioning your organization as a thought leader. Audiences will then know they can turn to you for reliable information on particular topics, whether that’s politicians, regulators, the media, voters, or your customers.
