Trust is the currency of relationships and a primary focus for public relations leaders seeking to improve financial results through both purchase and reputation. Increasing distrust driven by fake news, combined with the demand for corporate social advocacy, make understanding trust and participating in the conversation more essential today than ever. Do you want to increase sales? Do you want to improve your brand reputation? Trust is the key that unlocks both goals. Trust has been studied for years, but with new research from a mixed-method analysis, we will learn three proven ways of increasing trust while staying aligned with brand goals. You can use these methods to improve messaging, measure impact and build even greater trust.

In this session you will learn: What are the three trust factors that can improve reputation and increase sales How to most effectively build trust in three different industries (consumer, pharma, B2B) based on primary research How trust research can be applied to create and measure content that influences perceptions and behaviors
