Follow these 7 seven guidelines for building trust with customers - and definitely delight them!
1. Delight Employees
Delight your employees, and they will delight your customers. Build trust with your employees, and they will build trust with your customers. The bottom line: Happy employees = happy customers.

Develop team principles that all employees follow. These principles should reinforce the notion that the most important thing is solving for the customer.
3. Empower Employees
Make sure every employee can identify a customer at the buyer persona level. This will help you understand who you’re trying to delight.
Listen pre-sale and post-sale. It’s all about collecting data - both qualitative and quantitative - about the inbound experience. It’s going to help you improve, innovate, and better educate your employees.
5. Ask Questions
Go exploring with customers. Ask questions to learn more about their problems. (Open-ended questions are the best.) Be sure to collect all of the responses.
6. Help & Educate
The businesses that are the best educators will be the most successful. It’s a pre-sale and a post-sale activity.
Always make sure you follow up with customers to ensure you’ve solved their problems. Every interaction warrants some type of follow-up.
