Please note that this post is sponsored and created by VeriSign As concerns grow about fake websites and identity theft, customers are more reluctant to do business with a site they don’t know – or a brand they’re not familiar with. That’s where VeriSign comes in. VeriSign can help give your customers the peace of mind they need to buy, click, and sign-in to your site. Whether you’re a retailer, service provider, or ecommerce site, VeriSign can help your small business improve its online results. It’s recognized as the #1 most trusted mark on the Internet – a recent study showed the seal has an 86 percent recognition rate among online consumers. What does VeriSign do? When the VeriSign Trust™ Seal is displayed on your website, it means that VeriSign has confirmed your business as legitimate. It also means your web site has passed a daily malware scan, so visitors will have confidence when visiting and transacting with your site. Your customers will have a reason to trust you – and will feel that every point of their online experience is secure. Displaying the seal on your site can help increase sales by an average of 24 percent. The seal can also be displayed in search results to make you stand out from the competition, resulting in more click-throughs and site traffic.
