Safe and Trusted Canada wants to improve the quality of businesses on the Site.  Many businesses are already researched and are accredited with the Better Business Bureau. 

 Other business categories need approval and are regulated by a board approval process.  Businesses that are independently researched by another source are important to the consumer to have as information.  The Plus account which is at $99.00 per year is at no charge as long as that accreditation or business regulation is in place.  If this applies to your business simply apply for the free basic subscription and site admin will automatically upgrade you to the Plus Account.

Business Order of Display

The order of display affects how the consumer will view businesses on this website. 

The order of display is not a factor if the company uses the Safe and Trusted logo on their business website.  Using the logo and code provided gives a direct link from the company to the profile on Safe and Trusted and bypasses our order of display.

The order of display is not a factor where a consumer uses the Credentials Search function of the website, as consumers may be looking for credentials that will impact the order of display.  As an example, if they are looking for businesses that have been in business for ten years or more, that will significantly affect the view.

All subscriptions are at different levels.  The start date of the subscription is now only one factor in that subscription level.  The Credentials of the business are another.  

What is the credentials score for your business?

This ensures that the consumer is always looking at the business with the longest history with the most business credentials at any subscription level.   If the business moves from a Professional Subscription to a Basic Subscription, the business loses not only their subscription level, they also do not retain the date of their original signup.  They do retain their credentials score.  The automatic display will list the business under all other Basic Subscriptions for that trade area, category.  The automatic display works in a similar way going from a Basic Subscription level to a Paid Subscription level.

Consumers can refine their search by viewing the external review sites of the business as well as reviews generated on the Site itself.

No Risk to the Legitimate Business Owner

Safe and Trusted Canada understands that every business owner worries about being in any business directory that may impact their business. 

There is no risk to business with or from Safe and Trusted Canada.

These reasons may give you why we make that claim. 

Information Only profiles contain links to your website, social media, and other review sites that are already available to the consumer.  We include your contact data and other information available to consumers in one profile.  It is as if the consumer did the research and of course, we will be happy to update your information if there are changes.  Archival of the business occurs if the business is no longer in operation.  The business owner can contact us and we are more than happy to inform the Better Business Bureau and Google that your business is no longer in operation. They can contact you directly if required.  

What is an Information Only Profile 

Account Holders can add unlimited content to their business profile. The business owner has an enormous opportunity to add what may be missing on their current website and is a positive way to increase more traffic for the business.  Since the owner provides the content or authorizes our Admin to take current content provided by the business website, there can be no risk to the business owner.  The business moves to an Information Only profile if the business no longer has account access.   

There are only three key areas of concern, but will not affect legitimate business owners.  a) the business owner places credentials into their profile they do not possess, b) the business owner posts reviews about their business from staff or people connected with the business and c) the business is no longer in operation.  In all three cases, we place an alert on the business profile for one year. 

See Alerts. 

Account Holders control the review process.  They must agree that the customer giving the review is, in fact, their customer.  They can post a review, respond to a review or reject a  review and deal with the client in private.  The business has unlimited opportunity to get as much feedback as possible and handle issues promptly while posting reviews immediately when you and your staff have done well.   The business cannot post reviews that are paid or that are directly connected to the business in any way.   

Account Holders can place their business credentials into their profile and users can sort and select companies based on credentials that the consumer is seeking. The user will check the credentials that the company places in their profile.    Now if a company puts credentials into their profile, they do not have we put an alert on your profile. As an example, if you stated you are licensed and legal, and you were not, your business will be flagged with an alert for one year.   Safe and Trusted Canada has to protect the credibility of the website as well. 

The Site provides a free Basic Account to most businesses that are seeking customers and want to expand and grow their business.  We do not refund payments because we provide a Basic Account at no charge, and we see this as a trial account option before embarking to higher account status.    

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The business may also be archived.  See When We Archive a Business.

Why We Provide Links to other Review Sites?

Safe and Trusted Canada currently provides permanent public review links to Safe and Trusted Canada, Google Reviews and Better Business Bureau if applicable.

Supplementary Review Links are temporarily provided to categories providing accommodation, auto service, contractor services and food services and will be published

The Site provides the ability to an owner of the business to add numerous links to other review sites.    Safe and Trusted Canada as a neutral site will add and publish links to supplementary review sites for accommodations, auto, contractor and restaurants.   

Many of these supplementary sites can be found on the first or second page of Google.  Other Supplementary review sites for other business categories will not be published until the business owner does this through their account access

Please Note A supplementary review site can ask Safe and Trusted Canada not to allow any links to their site. Once notified, that review link will be made unavailable for both Information Only profiles and Account holders.

Other Supplementary Review Links with other categories will not be published but may be visible to the consumer if published by the business owner and the following video explains the process. 

All supplementary review sites are controlled by the business through their Plus Account.  The business with an Information Profile can ask for archival of their listing on Safe and Trusted Canada at any time. 

There is no risk to any business as an Information Only profile. 

 The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The business may also be archived.  See When We Archive a Business.

Our Referral Program

The best referrals are from business owners. 

You might think that the best referral is from a consumer, but business owners readily measure the quality of another business owner and know who is good and who is not.  Our system wants the good ones. 

All Premium Subscriptions have the ability to refer others that they consider businesses of quality.   The referred business must become a paid subscription as our referral system applies to paid subscriptions only.  If the business is already on our system there is no referral fee. 

All referrals receive credits at the rate of 25% of the subscription type purchased that can be used towards video production.  The maximum credits allowed per year is $200.00.  

Our Site is unable to reduce subscription renewal costs because many businesses are on monthly fixed amounts.  

So if the business refers business here are the examples of the referral fee gained towards a video.   

The Basic Subscription is at no charge and the referral credit does not apply. 
All other subscriptions are based on what the business paid for the subscription.

Please note that the referral fee is based on what the customer actually paid.  Some BBB Accredited and Professional Businesses have built-in discounts to their subscription type.  The referral rebate is adjusted accordingly.  The business paying monthly does not get a referral fee until one year has been completed. 

The Plus subscription is at $99.00 and the referral credit is $25.00.
The Standard subscription is at 199 and the referral credit is $50.00. 
The Advanced subscription is at $299 and the referral credit is $75.00. 
The Professional subscription is at $599.00 and the referral credit is $100.00

The maximum a business may earn in one year is $250 in referral credits towards a video. This is our way of thanking you and promoting the site to others. 

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The business may also be archived.  See When We Archive a Business.

What is a Region or Trade Area?

The first trade or region for the business must be their physical location for Information Only Profiles and Basic Subscriptions.

Additional trade areas or regions are assigned with Plus Standard, Advanced, and Professional subscriptions.

 

See other Videos regarding our services.  

Provincial trade regions or trade areas are automatic.

Information Only – Physical Location Only. 
Basic  – Physical Location Only
Plus – 5 Trade Areas 
Standard -10 Trade Areas
Advanced – 15 Trade Areas
Professional- 20 Trade Areas 

A business must select trade areas closest to their actual physical location.  

Contractors working another trade areas other than their physical location must meet licensing requirements for those trade areas if projects are being performed in those areas.   

If the business supplies products and wants to advertise directly that the consumer should come to their location, there are no licensing requirements involved.

The following trade areas are now active in Canada, and this is a significant opportunity for businesses to be seen first in a trade area if they have the professional subscription level.  See Trade Areas
