10 strategies for building credibility

I recently conducted a webinar on 10 Strategies for Building a Credible Sustainable Brand in conjunction with Sustainable Life Media. While I’ll never again agree to develop an hour’s worth of new content with 1 week’s notice (!), I appreciated the opportunity to pull together a fairly comprehensive set of strategies that help brands build credibility from the ground up and minimize the risk of greenwashing. The 10 strategies include:

1. Be proactive

2. Be transparent

3. Know your limits

4. Be relevant

5. Borrow credibility

6. Leverage brand strengths

7. Create a brand strategy

8. Be consistent

9. Educate

10. Engage

This list gives some good fodder for future blog posts, so stay tuned.

  1. Hi Jennifer

    Just watched your presentation – really interesting and thorough. All of your strategies are relevant to brand building, not just sustainability brand building. I’m building a new b2b brand in the telco space and can see how all 10 strategies are essential to a successful launch.

    Congratulations on the presentation and thank you for sharing it with the world!

    All the very best…Ian

  3. We must also consider the social viability of our brand to rank organically and gain influence that favors our brand in our niche market. We see a lot of e-commerce and e-service sites adapting to the open ended social platform to take advantage of social influence sharing.
