How lead-gen sites use the McAfee SECURE trustmark

Even if you’re not selling a product directly through your site, trust is still the foundation of your relationship with customers. Many businesses don’t sell directly, either because their products are very expensive (like cars), highly personalized (like insurance), or because the product is a service (like web design).

If you’re in this type of business, it’s likely you generate leads through a request-for-information (RFI) form where you ask for a name, email, phone, or all three—and that’s where trust comes in.

In a world full of robocalls and spam, consumers are naturally hesitant when sharing their personal information. Or worse, they don’t want to put their personal information at risk of being stolen and used for identity theft.

If you operate a business that requests contact information from your visitors and you want to prove you can be trusted, then consider adding a trustmark near or around these types of forms. Take a look at how the below companies are using the McAfee SECURE trustmark to generate more leads on their websites.

Mate1

Mate1.com helps people discover the dating platform most suitable to their needs and situation. Customers fill out relevant dating information—such as age, occupation, and photos—and are then directed to the platform most relevant to them.

Because they’re collecting personal information, Mate1 displays the engagement trust mark directly on their home page, which is almost exclusively an RFI form. The engagement trust mark is designed to be used in areas where customers have the most concerns about their security and privacy. Placing it front and center helps banish those thoughts on mate1.com

They also include the engagement trust mark in the footer of their non-RFI pages, such as the “About” and “FAQ” pages. This provides visitors with a consistent message: Mate1 is a secure business, and is dedicated to protecting your information.

Wrapping up

Asking for personal information can be a tricky process to get right.
