If you enjoy engaging business podcasts with a dynamic host, we strongly recommend checking out the Ben Baker podcast: The YourLIVINGBrand.live Show.
The YourLIVINGBrand.live show is about what makes you unique as a brand. What you do, why you do it, who you do it for, and why you are valuable to them. Every brand has a story. Something that sets them apart and engages their audience in a positive way. Every week, we have another guest that tells us their story and how they find ways to interact with their particular audience.
Actually, it was my absolute privilege to serve as as guest on a recent episode: eCommerce Strategies with Curt Anderson.
On top of being an incredible podcast host, Ben is a Branding Expert, consultant, speaker, author and strong family man.
Before we dig deeper, check out this outstanding video from Ben on developing “Powerful Personal Brands”:
Ben Baker Shares Strategies on Building Trust

On the podcast, Ben shares outstanding tips on how he manufactured his successful career and business by Building Trust with his clients.
Do yourself a favor and click here to listen to this fantastic conversation with Ben and Dennis.
For a quick background, Ben Baker delivers a wealth of experience serving as:
- President of Your Brand Marketing
- Host of YourLIVINGBrand.live podcast
- Author of “Powerful Personal Brands: A Hands-on Guide to Understanding Yours”: (You can grab a copy of this excellent book on Amazon – You will love it!)
Throughout conversations, Ben preaches that Building Trust requires:
Ben also recommends asking yourself and your team poignant questions while working on Building Trust with customers:
- What do we do?
- Why we do it?
- How do we do it better?
- What do we do differently?
What Problem Do You Solve?
Another powerful suggestion from Ben, a dedicated team and organization should always be asking: “What problems do we solve”?
Ben says solving that problem consistently and better than anyone else, while demonstrating a deep understanding for your customer is critical with Building Trust.
Additionally, Ben makes an excellent point to not only understand your customer but also gain a clear understanding of your customer’s customer.
Another takeaway, Ben Baker focuses on being authentic rather than attempting to define yourself against your competition.
As Ben points out, we all have competitors. Even great companies such as Coke and Apple face fierce competition.
Therefore, striving to deliver the best products and services results in Building Trust.
Lastly, Ben recommends delivering a strong and consistent message. Stay in your lane.
After developing a relationship through LinkedIn, Ben graciously and generously shared a few additional quotes on Building Trust:
- “Be the person who does what they say and says what they do”.
- “Great leaders make safe space for others to learn how to succeed.”
- “Take time to understand how you can help others….then go out and do it.”
- Lastly, ask yourself, “How do you want to be thought of when you are not in the room?”
Thank you for sharing these incredibly valuable tips Ben!
