Say you are a really honest used car dealer, a truly compassionate personal injury lawyer, or a lobbyist fighting for a real noble cause…how do you create an image for yourself that is believable and disconnected from the bad connotations that characterize your industry?
Can you overcome the perceptions?
And how do people make buying decisions when they need a product or service from an industry that is tainted like that? Sure, they can ask for recommendations…but in a lot of cases you do not need that product or service too often, and many of your friends may have never needed it either.
It’s a tough one…and one that many small businesses are facing.
Thoughts? Good case studies? Let me know…
