So, listen, the simple trick to making friends is being kind and helpful. Why is "making friends" used instead of "make friends" in the sentence? Is "the trick to..." always following by the "ing" form of the verb? Thank you for the reply.

Yes, the phrase 'the trick to...' is always followed by the -ing form of the verb. It is just one of those standard English usage 'rules' that do not always seem logical.
