Credibility Counts, Ask Around

We’ve all had a point in our lives when we need to purchase something that we know we need but don’t know much about.

Maybe you’re in a store looking for something, with eyes frantically browsing the shelves looking at all the different items. Trying to distinguish the difference between all the various products, versions, and makes. As the choices add up, maybe you decide it’s best to ask for someone’s opinion. Someone who works at the store you’re in happens to be walking down the aisle and you signal for help. It is in this moment that you start deciding if this person has the knowledge to be able to help you or not.

Because after all, they could have just as little knowledge as you about this product.

After having a discussion you discover that it was true, the employee wasn’t as knowledgeable on the product to make you feel comfortable with a purchase. So you head home with empty hands, deciding that you’ll take your questions elsewhere. Somewhere with all the answers in the world.

The internet.

The internet can be an equally overwhelming place when trying to find accurate information about a product. In a world that is becoming more and more connected, the amount of information that is available to us is growing exponentially. How can you sort through all of this information and deduce what is accurate and honest information, especially with people out there trying to scam and get the best of you?

Sites like Amazon and Google try to combat this by showing us user review scores and comments of people who have purchased items. But even these can be manipulated. So when it seems like it’s impossible to find the information, who can you really trust?

How do you know you can trust a product?

Ask around. They say word of mouth is the best kind of marketing and real people who have used the products can give you the most honest answers.
