Using CSR to create trust and confidence in e-commerce

Confidence is and always has been the base for success for whichever company: if the client doesn’t trust you, they won’t buy from you. This is a reality which few of us are willing to dispute and neither did our grandparents dispute it when all the shops were “offline” and when the idea of “online” was more a question of science fiction than an actual reality.

Of course now, times have changed and many of those business which reached their customers on an “analogical” level now have become “traditional businesses”, whereas those who have digital tools as their foundations are modern and current businesses. And in this context, what happens with the confidence and trust? Well, it keeps playing a crucial part.

confianza_onlineIf before the trader had to make every effort possible for the buyer to believe their word and trust in them, now it is the entrepreneur dealing with digital projects which has to gain the confidence of their customer; which, if you think about it, is perhaps even more difficult. Online businesses are not able to see the faces of their clients, they don’t speak directly with them, and they can’t interpret their nonverbal language. Even with that being the case, they still have to gain the confidence of their customers.

In this context, making a special effort to create an image which reduces legitimate doubts which the customer may have prior to making an online purchase will be essential for the businesses’ success.

CSR becomes a tool which humanises a “digitalised” company, to show that they also have a heart (just as the trader had from the shops of 20 years ago where everyone used to go).

E-commerce users want to have faith in their online shops, they want to trust them. It will be hard for them not to trust them if these businesses show that they have a real involvement in the society which they have developed in, and if they show that they work ethically and represent their values.

The first step to build confidence is to show commitment and CSR is an exceptional way of doing exactly that.

Nicequest joins “Nobody left outside” campaign

capcelera_acnur

With the beginning of the new year, Nicequest starts a new solidarity campaign so that their users have the opportunity to continue collaborating in cooperation projects through their participation in different kinds of surveys.

Throughout 2017, the company will respond to many of the social causes and humanitarian emergencies that require attention and are linked to the United Nations sustainable development goals, such as guarantee access to safe drinking water, eradicate poverty or the prevention of the environment.

Their first challenge is related to providing assistance to more than 65 million people who are out of their homes, 50% of them are children.

 Did you know that every second, 24 people become displaced?

It is a record data of human displacement. In a few years, the number of refugees has increased dramatically due to the crisis in Syria and the conflicts in South Sudan, Central African Republic, Burundi and Central America.

In front of this situation, Nicequest has joined to the worldwide campaign “Nobody left outside”, leaded by UNHCR. The project seeks to shelter 2 million people who have been forced to flee their homes and who do not have a shelter.

 

Through the donations from Nicequest, 13 emergency shelters for homeless refugee families will be distributed in UNHCR camps, giving access to a home to 100 people.

CSR in e-commerce: 4 small actions which can produce big results

The fact that Social Corporate Responsibility is taking centre stage in companies is a reality that digital businesses, and of course, e-commerce businesses cannot escape. To be aware that companies operate in a society and a surrounding which they need to take care of is key to carry out whichever activity.

Sometimes, however, CSR can be seen from certain businesses as something which is not achievable for everybody, and that it is something which implies big investment of time and capital. And what if, in reality it is simpler than what we believe it is?

Here are 4 ideas of CSR actions you can take, which without needing a great investment, can produce big results for the business and the society in which it operates:

  1. Honesty, transparency, and confidence when dealing with a client.

What defines a business is the way it connects and interacts with its clients. In e-commerce, also, generating confidence between the organisation and client is essential to overcoming the barriers which can sometimes come about with online shopping.

Basing this relationship on values such as honesty, transparency and confidence is the first step to make the business a socially responsible organisation, and also, the business will earn more!

  1. Non-discriminatory policies when employing people.

In a society which does not discriminate, businesses should support the non-discrimination. To not refuse entry of a talent into a business for discriminatory motives will not only nurture the business with better professionals, but it will also provide the atmosphere of the business with a more open and just way of thinking.

  1. Involvement in social projects.

There are many ways for a businesses to play a simple part in social projects. The widget developed by Worldcoo, for example, allows e-commerce clients to donate a small amount of money to a particular project. Simple, transparent and socially responsible.

  1. To take responsibility for faulty products.

In e-commerce it is essential, as we have already said, to rely on the client’s confidence. To give the appropriate response to potential errors when providing a service or when selling a faulty product is not only a socially responsible action to take, but it also ensures the best possible offer for the customer and, therefore, a higher level of satisfaction and a bigger success in the businesses’ results

In Spain, 1 in 3 children suffer poverty and social exclusion

capcelera_educo

Dreivip, one of our e-commerce with cause, has finished his last project. Thanks to them, NGO Mumbai Smiles will be able to educate 30 children under 6 years old and prevent them from falling into exploitation networks. If you want, you can remember the project HERE.

Its next challenge, which starts today, is to end child malnutrition in Spain, a very important purpose if we consider that today more than 2.6 million Spanish children are at risk of poverty and social exclusion. Since the beginning of the crisis, the risk of poverty has increased to 33,4%.

logo_dreivipThrough EDUCO, Dreivip users will have the opportunity to collaborate with the “Lunchroom Scholarships Educo”, which aims to guarantee, at least, a complete and healthy meal a day to children of Primary and Secondary Education in Spain in situation of Risk of poverty and exclusion.

Thanks to their collaboration, 8 children will receive a daily meal in their school during one year, distributing 1.320 meals totally.

E-commerce, leader in the presence of women in management positions and reconciliation

The E-commerce sector is to be congratulated, since it the sector that commits most to reconciliation policies, and also, it is the sector which has the biggest feminine presence amongst its workforces and with the most women in positions of management.

The fact that digitalization assumes for these businesses the role of a fundamental tool for the development of business, has supplied that most of its procedures are digitalized, which, therefore, makes it simpler to apply policies which favour reconciliation: flexible working hours, teleworking … These are methods which are already a reality in many ecommerce businesses and it is to be seen in the figures: 74% of businesses admit to offering the possibility of a flexible working timetable to its staff and 44% have the option of teleworking.

7_posteng-01

This great possibility of reconciliation coincides with having a higher proportion of women in the workforce, and of course, in positions of leadership and management: 12% of the CEOs in e-commerce are women, which is 7% more than in other companies in other sectors, according to the observatory of professional women ‘Women at’, and 21% of women in the ecommerce sector work as acting directors.

They are figures which not only shed light on a society which calls for a change regarding reconciliation, but it also sheds lights on some business figures. So much so that a study by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis shows that businesses that commit to reconciliation achieve better results and that in their teams, those who perform best are women with two or more kids to look after.

Reconciliation could be, in fact, the first step towards a more equal society, one in which women have a presence which is increasingly closer to that which men have, and a society in which management positions of companies don’t just simply fall to male characters. A society, in which men and women are able to receive the same opportunities and one in which they are judged more on their merits than their genders.

It seems like in the world of ecommerce, the first step has been taken and that results are already showing, just as much in incorporating women into the working world as the level of economic results of the businesses.

Congratulations e-commerce!

E-commerce, 4 reasons to get started on CSR

worldcoo_engCorporate Social Responsibility is nothing new. Today the majority of businesses commit to promoting a positive impact through the actions they take in the society they work in. Working in terms of specific politics of CSR is not only beneficial for the surrounding community, but also for the business itself.

How does applying CSR policies benefit the business itself? Here are 4 reasons for why you should start being socially responsible.

  1. Employees prefer responsible businesses. According to recent studies carried out by Regus, 43% declared that when choosing between two similar job offers, they would choose the business which gets involved with charitable projects. Also, 47% of employees considered it very important that the businesses which they work for carry out these kind of activities.
  1. To improve the image of the brand: making it responsible and coherent. Every brand has values which they identify themselves with and those which they want to be linked with. In order to do this, however, the company must be coherent, and act accordingly. There is not a better way to communicate what you believe in with regards to the environment than carrying out the relevant actions, and this is only one example!
  1. Your reputation: We human beings believe that a lot of the time, seeing is believing. Don’t settle for simply saying the good things you do, actually do good things for your community. Your audience will realise what you are contributing and it will boost your reputation. Creating a strong reputation is a matter of work well done.
  1. Your CSR can be in your product or your service. Take advantage of what your business offers. Involve your product or service in your CSR strategy, you will not only achieve projecting a positive of your brand, attracting better professionals and building a strong reputation for yourself, but you will also make your product or service known and you will make people talk about it.

Have you still not decided? Get your CSR strategy under way and you will see all of the advantages it will have on your business.
