What is your business credentials score with consumers? See the video.
We want to remind all businesses and contractors of the importance of accurately listing their credentials on our site. When consumers search for a business or contractor, they rely on the credentials listed to make their decision. It is crucial that businesses and contractors guarantee the accuracy of their credentials.
Consumers can easily search for a business based on their credentials, such as registration, licensing, and years in business. Similarly, contractor credentials, like worker’s compensation, liability, and written contracts, provide consumers with the necessary information to make an informed decision.
It is essential that businesses and contractors understand that their credentials can be viewed and searched by consumers. The site will not score or validate credentials; consumers make their own decisions. Therefore, it is crucial that businesses and contractors take responsibility for ensuring the accuracy of their credentials.
By accurately listing your credentials, you can establish trust with potential customers and stand out from your competitors. Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring the accuracy of the listed credentials.
The credential score for hotels and restaurants is the composite review done by Safe and Trusted Canada. All the review sites form the composite review, and that average is the credentials score for that business. The composite review may be available to the consumer if it is completed. Hotels and Restaurants will retain their scores because this is an average of all review sites as Information Only profiles.
In all cases, consumers will evaluate and make their own decisions.
The business is in the first tier of the database. See the video
Display of the business occurs above Information Only Profiles, Basic Subscriptions, Plus Subscriptions and Standard Subscriptions, Advanced Subscriptions and any others who may have signed up for the Professional Subscription after your business in your region or categories. The Professional Subscription is listed according to our Business Order of Display.
The Business Owner measures every View. The measured views are secured in the content management pages for the business and are not displayed for public view. See More
Bypass your competition. Simply link your profile on Safe and Trusted Canada, and your linking bypasses the competition. See the video.
This means that the user does not have to search you out as a business on the Safe and Trusted site, which could also mean that your customers won’t see your competition. This advantage could be huge for you as a business owner in many ways.
Use your profile to augment your website. You can add material to your profile more easily than on your website; more importantly, the user doesn’t see your competition in the process. Imagine all the material on your Safe and Trusted Canada profile that is not on your website.
You can also link to all your local affiliations and any business category affiliations that show why customers should pick you. Affiliations add to the overall credibility of a business. Go to the content management area in the Basic area, and list each of them under affiliations. Place the affiliation’s name, then add the link to your listing with that affiliation. Place the full link next to the name of the affiliation. If you have a professional subscription, all the affiliations automatically shorten. This also works for your website and links back to certain parts of your website. Using Links in Your Business Presentation.

One of our platform’s benefits is that businesses can place their contact information, social media links, business credentials, and all their review sites. They can highlight what makes them different and even specific links to their website. They manage their own reviews and send all their information to a potential client in one link. This allows the business owner to give their clients the whole picture.
Your subscription allows customers to leave reviews. See the tutorial
See the video about reviews.
All reviews are monitored and posted by the business owner. You can request the deletion of a corrected customer review or ask for the deletion of a review that is not from your customer. As a business, you are not allowed to review your own business. Your advantage as a business owner is that you are always on top of your business.
One of the problems with reviews is that a negative review often blindsides a business. Never be blindsided again. See the video.
One of the problems most businesses experience is not asking for reviews. They are worried about negative reviews and are not proactive in asking for feedback.
The Safe and Trusted Review system allows the business owner to proactively ask for customer feedback and instantly become aware of issues unknown to the business owner.
Use proactive reviews to identify issues quickly for the business owner. This will enable the business owner to quickly mitigate issues and resolve customer problems before they escalate out of hand with reviews on websites or even complaints to Better Business Bureau.
Present Your Business Basics First. We call them credentials. See the video.
Safe and Trusted Canada is looking for businesses with an advertised name registered and meeting licensing requirements for the business’s physical trade area. Years in business matters on our website. We are looking for businesses that can clearly articulate their credentials, increasing their overall credibility score with consumers.
In addition to the Business credentials, if you are a contractor, The Site allows the contractor to indicate that they have liability insurance, worker’s compensation, and warranties in writing. We are looking for businesses that can clearly articulate their contractor credentials, increasing their overall credibility score with consumers.

What causes an alert? As with all subscriptions, the company must be responsible and accountable. Business owners with subscriptions must ensure the accuracy of credentials in their profiles. The business owner can ask all the customers for reviews, post reviews, and handle private issues. The business owner must ensure that they do not post reviews from anyone connected with their company. See Alerts.
The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled. The company may also be archived.
