Clarity: How to Embed This Trust Signal in Your Content

{ This article is adapted from our ‘Becoming A Trusted Expert’ guide, available here }


Clarity is one of the eight pillars of trust.

As a communication quality, clarity ensures clear, straightforward information your audience understands.

In contrast, humans distrust vague and illogical thinking in business writing.

Ask Yourself

  • Do my customers know what I do exactly?
  • What content could I create to help my audience better understand what I do?
  • Do I clearly articulate important changes and simplify new topics?

In an era of misinformation and ambiguous messaging, businesses that communicate with clarity stand out as trustworthy to their customers.

From writing instructions and routine promotions to crafting high-level mission and purpose statements, your customers will appreciate your effort to communicate clearly.

Plus, they’ll better understand what your business does. Which means they’ll recommend you and, at best, hire you.

Handy Hints

  1. Choose words and phrases wisely
  2. Be sure to define terms your audience could misinterpret
  3. Provide context to help your reader appreciate your topic within the bigger picture
