Trust and credibility
When customers approach you for the first time with a business inquiry, they don't know you or how you operate. One of the most effective ways to attract them, reassure them and win their trust is through certification.
Certification can open doors to job opportunities. And if the certification comes from a well-known awarding body, then the customer will feel like they know what to expect, which will make them more comfortable.
Stand out from the crowd
If your field doesn't require certification, then you can use it to your advantage to stand out from the competition. When there are many other practitioners offering similar services, it can be challenging to compete for that same customer pool.
While you may want to channel some of your budget into marketing, there are other routes to consider. Professional development, and in particular, certification, can differentiate you from other companies and give you an edge.
Improve the way you work
Achieving certification is about more than just saying what you've done. Any tests you complete or courses that you attend will have their own benefits. Understanding what the best practices in your industry are will give you a new appreciation for your profession, and how you can support your customers.
