What is a Professional Subscription?

Safe and Trusted Canada ( The Site) provides the option for The Professional Subscription for $399.00 plus GST for a yearly subscription.  Monthly subscriptions are 35.25 plus GST.  Monthly subscriptions can be cancelled with 60 days’ notice. The daily investment if paid yearly not including tax is $1.09.  See the Application

The business has an option to double their trade areas for their subscription level for a yearly amount of $100.00 plus GST or a monthly amount of $8.33 plus GST
The Professional subscription would increase from 20 to 40 trade areas. 

Payments can be made by credit card, cheque or monthly PAD from your chequing account. There are no refunds for paid accounts as The Site gives the Basic Account at no charge for evaluation purposes of our Site Content Management System.

All our account types are for legitimate businesses.  Your business needs to be registered and licensed and cannot have known issues readily apparent to consumers.    Businesses applying for all subscription types have to be approved by Safe and Trusted Canada taking into consideration years in business and their overall business record.   See other Subscription Types.

This account type provides the account holder with access to place up to 60 subcategories into their profile.  The account holder has the ability to place that profile in up to 20 trade areas adjacent to the business location.  In addition, the business can add up to 10 PDF documents, 24 images and embed up to 10 YouTube videos in their business profile. 

Every View is measured for the Business Owner. The measured views are secured in the content management pages for the business and are not displayed for public view. See More   

If your business has a current accreditation with Better Business Bureau or needs to have a professional affiliation in order to operate as a business then the Professional Subscription has a $100 rebate for as long as accreditation or professional affiliation is current. Your professional subscription is reduced to $299 plus GST for a yearly subscription. Monthly subscriptions are $26.91 plus GST. The daily investment if paid yearly not including tax is $0.81.

The business is in the first tier of the database.  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.  Your listed business credentials also impact the order of display.  The Professional Subscription is listed in the database according to our Business Order of Display

Every business has business credentials.  Is the Advertised Name registered? Is the business licensed for the business category and city or town? How many years have they been in business is also a factor. 

If you are a contractor in addition to the above, do you carry worker’s compensation, liability insurance and do you provide written contracts and warranty?  So in addition to the subscription level, business credentials provide the consumer with the separation needed between one business and another.  A business must guarantee that the listed business credentials are accurate.

All account holders have the ability to bypass their competition and the website by linking their Safe and Trusted Profile directly to their business website.  This means that the user does not have to search you out as a business.  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 on your profile easier than on your website and 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. 

Link to all your national affiliations like BBB and Chamber of Commerce.  You can also link to all your local affiliations, as well as any business category affiliations that show why customers should pick you.  Affiliations add to the overall credibility of a business.  Just go to the content management area in the Basic area and under affiliations list each of them.  Place the name of the affiliation 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 paid subscription all the affiliations automatically shorten.  This also works for your website as well in linking back to certain parts of your website.

One of the benefits of our platform is that the business can place their contact information, links to their social media, their business credentials and links to all their review sites.  They can highlight what makes them different, promotions, now hiring and even specific links to their website.  They manage their own reviews and can send all their information to a potential client in one link.  This gives the business owner the ability to give their clients the whole picture.

Your subscription allows customers to leave reviews.  All reviews are monitored and posted by the business owner.  The advantage here is that as a business owner you are always on top of your business.  You are able to ask for the deletion of corrected reviews from customers or even ask the customer for a new review.  As a business, you are not allowed to review your own business.  There are no more blindsides for your business.  You are able to ask for reviews from all your customers without worrying about what the review will say.  The advantage for you is that you are always on top of your business. 

Are you Hiring Staff?  The content management system to place information into your business profile that you are hiring staff.  The information will be there for every view in all your business categories and trade areas posted for your subscription type. 

The potential new staff will instantly view everything about your company and as a business owner, you will have the benefit of dealing directly with the potential new hire. 

The best part is that the new potential hire will already know based on your overall profile why they want to work for your company. 

You can place content and direction on how to apply for the job opening and in our system, you can even place a link directly to your website or another job hiring website that can give them more information. 

Does your business use discounts or promotions?  Your account management gives the business owner the ability to have short or long term discounts for customers. 

Place the content in the appropriate area and drive more possible customers to your business.  There are a full range of options and all you have to remember is to remove the promotion or discount if it is no longer in place. 

You also have the option to link your discount to your website or other promotions website.  Remember all links become shortened automatically. 

Your subscription also gives your business video opportunities for just $249.00 per video plus appropriate taxes.  Making an announcement about your business just got easier.  Drive your business faster.   This video contains no advertising.  You provide the script and produce the video giving you a link only. There are no graphics to this video for the business.  Provide a message that you give consumers in video format that can be used on your website and social media. 

Do you want a professional video with more than just a link that you own forever without advertising?  This option might be for your business.   A 60-second video for a professional subscription is $449.00 plus taxes.   This video provides key graphics related to your business including your logo, website, and contact information.  You need to provide your logo, script and we ask you to remember to abide by advertising standards in your script.  We don’t redo the video.  The video will be done by our on-camera narrators. We send you an MP4 of the video so you own it forever. 

The video made for your business will be done by our skilled on-camera narrators.   Custom graphic videos are more involved and your investment will be according to the project presented.  These videos are photo montages with a script done in consultation with the business owner.  The owner of the business provides its images and is responsible for copyright issues.  Remember you must abide by advertising standards. See some examples of graphic videos we have done.   See more.

The  Plus Subscription is listed in the database according to our Business Order of Display. 

Every business has business credentials.  Is the Advertised Name registered? Is the business licensed for the business category and city or town? How many years have they been in business is also a factor. 

If you are a contractor in addition to the above, do you carry worker’s compensation, liability insurance and do you provide written contracts and warranty?  So in addition to the subscription level, business credentials provide the consumer with the separation needed between one business and another.  A business must guarantee that the listed business credentials are accurate.  

All account holders have the ability to bypass their competition and the website by linking their Safe and Trusted Profile directly to their business website.  This means that the user does not have to search you out as a business.  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 on your profile easier than on your website and 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. 

Link to all your national affiliations like BBB and Chamber of Commerce.  You can also link to all your local affiliations, as well as any business category affiliations that show why customers should pick you.  Affiliations add to the overall credibility of a business.  Just go to the content management area in the Basic area and under affiliations list each of them.  Place the name of the affiliation 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 paid subscription all the affiliations automatically shorten.  This also works for your website as well in linking back to certain parts of your website.

One of the benefits of our platform is that the business can place their contact information, links to their social media, their business credentials and links to all their review sites.  They can highlight what makes them different, promotions, now hiring and even specific links to their website.  They manage their own reviews and can send all their information to a potential client in one link.  This gives the business owner the ability to give their clients the whole picture.

Your subscription allows customers to leave reviews.  All reviews are monitored and posted by the business owner.  The advantage here is that as a business owner you are always on top of your business.  You are able to ask for the deletion of corrected reviews from customers or even ask the customer for a new review.  As a business, you are not allowed to review your own business.  There are no more blindsides for your business.  You are able to ask for reviews from all your customers without worrying about what the review will say.  The advantage for you is that you are always on top of your business.

Are you Hiring Staff?  The content management system to place information into your business profile that you are hiring staff.  The information will be there for every view in all your business categories and trade areas posted for your subscription type. 

The potential new staff will instantly view everything about your company and as a business owner, you will have the benefit of dealing directly with the potential new hire. 

The best part is that the new potential hire will already know based on your overall profile why they want to work for your company. 

You can place content and direction on how to apply for the job opening and in our system, you can even place a link directly to your website or another job hiring website that can give them more information. 

Does your business use discounts or promotions?  Your account management gives the business owner the ability to have short or long term discounts for customers. 

Place the content in the appropriate area and drive more possible customers to your business.  There are a full range of options and all you have to remember is to remove the promotion or discount if it is no longer in place. 

You also have the option to link your discount to your website or other promotions website.  Remember all links become shortened automatically.

Your subscription also gives your business video opportunities for just $249.00 per video plus appropriate taxes.  Making an announcement about your business just got easier.  Drive your business faster.   This video contains no advertising.  You provide the script and produce the video giving you a link only. There are no graphics to this video for the business.  Provide a message that you give consumers in video format that can be used on your website and social media. 

 

Do you want a professional video with more than just a link that you own forever without advertising?  This option might be for your business.   A 60-second video for a plus subscription is $449.00 plus taxes.   This video provides key graphics related to your business including your logo, website, and contact information.  You need to provide your logo, script and we ask you to remember to abide by advertising standards in your script.  We don’t redo the video.  The video will be done by our on-camera narrators. We send you an MP4 of the video so you own it forever.   

The video made for your business will be done by our skilled on-camera narrators.   Custom graphic videos are more involved and your investment will be according to the project presented.  See some examples of graphic videos we have done.   See more.

Safe and Trusted Canada is looking for businesses that have an advertised name that is registered, as well as meeting licensing requirements for the physical trade area of the business.  Years in business matters on our website.  We are looking for businesses that can clearly articulate that in their credentials in the content management area provided in account access. 

In addition to the Business credentials if you are 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 that in their credentials in the content management area provided in account access.

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.

 

The Site does not offer account options to all businesses.  Some business categories are not part of The Site.  Our current category options are the same in every city and town.   See Saskatoon as an example.  The Site is currently expanding. See other areas.

What is Your Credentials Score?

The implementation of the Credentials Score is now in place for all businesses. 

Whenever we deal with a business in the future through account access, credentials will be part of the overall presentation of the business and will be one more part of giving consumers accurate information. 

The credentials score is the number generated to separate one business versus another.  Hotels and Restaurants will have a credentials score based on a composite review of review sites. 

The credentials score for all other businesses will be a point system based on what the business indicates in their Standard Credentials.  The Standard Credentials ask the business owner to establish their current credentials including licensing, legal requirements, advertised name registration, guarantee that credentials are accurate and that the business has a complaint system directly to the business owner.  The business receives 1 point for every applicable item. 

Years in business matter.  There are three options.  10 or more, 5 or more and 3 or more.  Select only one of the three options.   If you have under 3 years in business your allocation is zero points.  If you have 3 years in business your allocation is 1 point,  5 years in business allocate 2 points and 10 or more allocate 3 points. 

If the business is a contractor then the business owner checks off all the Contractor Credentials applicable to their business.  There are 14 possible areas that separate one contractor versus another.  1 point is awarded for everything checked off.  

There is a form included in the application where the owner can simply check off what applies to their business, or it can be completed with a phone call with the owner of the business. 

Remember the business needs to ensure whatever credentials they check off are accurate.  Alerts generation occurs for false credentials with archival happening one year afterward. 

The credentials score will now affect the business order of display in addition to subscription type and date added to  our database.  This will give great businesses, even more, an opportunity to shine on our database. 

How We List Hotels?

Our mechanism for listing Hotels as Information Only profiles does not follow our normal format for other business types. 

Information Only profiles give the business only one category and one trade area. 

Presentation for Hotels would have to list room and hotel amenities and that would mean that some hotels may have up to 40 subcategories just to give that hotel an accurate presentation of that property.  In some areas of Canada, we have listed Information Only profiles for this business category.

Unfortunately, because there are thousands of hotels in Canada we will not be able to list all of them unless they apply for account status. 

Hotels in one city may be in close proximity to restaurants in other cities and the consumer should be able to view all their options.    We have done this in selected areas. Moving forward hotels will need account status and trade assignments are according to subscription type.  See our business order of display

The Hotel may be listed in our database according to the composite review of all their review sites. will need account status.  

Each account type gives the hotel more presentation options just like other business types.  Trade areas and Categories will not be one of them as the hotel will automatically retain what is listed 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.

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.

Tier 1 – Professional – See Professional Subscription
Tier 2-  Advanced –  See Advanced Subscription

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.
