How WordPress sites use the McAfee SECURE trustmark

How WordPress sites use the McAfee SECURE trustmark

As a business owner, you’re more than aware that there are many different strategies to increase conversions on your site, and you’ve probably tried out many of them. But have you tried adding a trust signal to your website?

The McAfee SECURE plugin for WordPress makes it easy for you to add the McAfee SECURE trustmark, which shows visitors that your site is reliable and safe to do business with.

With the plugin, you have the ability to display the trustmark on all pages of your site—from your homepage all the way to the checkout (if you're running an ecommerce site). This gives your customers a secure experience, making them feel more confident and comfortable engaging with your site.

Whether you're asking visitors to opt-in to follow your blog or selling products via an online store, trustmarks can have an impact on the performance of your WordPress site. In this piece, we'll focus on how ecommerce stores are using the trustmark, but the same principles apply no matter what type of site you're running.

There are many ways to implement the McAfee SECURE service. Take a look at how these WordPress sites are conveying trustworthiness to their customers with the following implementations.

Kitchen Pit Stop

Kitchenpitstop.com, sellers of cookware, non-stick bakeware, knives, and other kitchen accessories, lets shoppers know they're secure throughout their shopping experience by displaying the floating trustmark on every page of their website. Take a look at how they've chosen to offset the trustmark so that it does not interfere with the chat window that also appears in the bottom right corner of their site.

The engagement trustmark is often used near areas where customers may be hesitant to continue on down the purchase funnel. You'll notice Kitchen Pit Stop has placed the engagement trustmark on the product page below the 'Add to Cart' button. This reassures visitors that it’s safe to move forward with making a purchase.

The engagement trustmark also appears on their checkout page, reassuring visitors that it's safe to enter in their credit card details. In addition, they display the Shopper Identity Protection trustmark, letting customers know they're protected by a free $100,000 coverage in the event of identity theft. This double placement shows visitors that Kitchen Pit Stop takes their customer’s security seriously.
