Trust is an integral part of your business plan. Building opportunities, contacting new partners, and even maintaining old relationships relies on your ability to have a trustworthy relationship.
“Trust” is defined as “a firm belief in the reliability, strength, or truth of someone or something.” This invisible confidence could be the one thing propelling your business ventures to the next level.
What is the best way to build trust with people and organizations you cannot see every day? For businesses located outside of the United States, this poses a significant threat. How can you gain trust if you are not able to build it yourself?
In the event that you are not able to present yourself to build these new relationships, Local Managers are excellent resources to creating a physical presence in the United States.
Local Management not only gives you the ability to have a low-cost solution to your local American business, but it also provides assistance in creating trusting relationships.
Psychology research confirms we are more likely to trust individuals who are familiar to us.
Local Managers act as that familiar face to bring your business to the forefront of growth.
Why are Local Managers trusted more than international company representatives?
Local Managers look similar to your business counterparts.
Opposites attract? Not in this case. Psychology research shows you are more attracted to individuals who share similar facial features. In fact, we are more likely to trust people who exhibit similar features and less likely to trust those who do not.
Local Managers have the same shared background and experiences as your business partners.
Shared experiences have a way of bringing people together. One study states the more significant the experience, the greater the group interaction post experience. Being able to share backgrounds with your new business partners strengthens the trust bond between organizations and individuals.
Physical presence positively affects your business goals in the United States.
Studies show that physical presence initiates significant correlation to cooperation. A single moment of physical contact, such as a handshake, between individuals increases the chance of cooperation compared to those who have never met in person. A handshake can go further than you expected!
Trust building relationships are a center pillar to your success. If you are unable to make these relationships yourself, having someone to serve as that trust-partner for you is just as effective!
