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. 

See other Videos regarding our services.  

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.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE PLACE THE FOLLOWING CONTENT INTO EVERY PROFILE

  • Information Only Profiles are as advertised to the public on the internet. 
  • The Site as a matter of policy does not recommend, accredit, suggest, promote, or validate any business. Consumers do that through reviews.
  • The Site provides public links to review sites that permit us to publish those links.
  • The Site provides private links to all other trademarked review sites about the business directly to the business only through their account access.     
  • Subscription types give business owners different advertising options, but the Site does not suggest that credibility determines subscription level.  
  • Users can use the advanced features of the Credentials Search to determine the degree of reliability for each business.  
  • It is the responsibility of the user to check the credentials advertised by the business.  
  • Notify Site Admin immediately where the business is advertising credentials they do not have, or information is not current.
  • The company and the consumer entirely determine transactions with each other. 
  • Safe and Trusted Canada does not mediate complaints, issues, or concerns.  
  • Seek legal advice for complex transactions.
  • Protect your interests as removal of the business may occur at any time.

Account Holders Can Add Optional Custom Video

Our system allows a business to purchase a custom photo montage for their business or a media release up to 60 seconds in length.

Video investment for your business is one of the best marketing tools you can use for your business.   

The cost of the video ranges from $599.00 to $450.00 in Canadian dollars. The Plus Subscription is at $599.00, the Standard is $549.00, the Advanced is $499.00 and the Professional is at $449.00.   The higher your subscription the lower you video price will be. 

The size of your video can be anywhere up to one minute in total length.   The video is yours forever at no extra costs.  You can place it on your video channel, your website or your social media. This makes perfect sense for your business and the video is sent to you in MP4 format after your approval and payment. 

It is your responsibility to ensure you have your script and content.  

Please be advised that we will not do videos for everyone.  We work with credible businesses and our ideal client is a business owner that understands their ideal market and what makes them different from their competition. 

A 30-second video normally has 5 to 6 lines of text with 12 images.  A 60-second video has about 10 to 11 lines of text with about 15 images.   The business must supply their own images.   

The client is responsible for their content, but we will assist if required. Video engages the client.  Some indicate that that video increases the overall profile on Google.  See Link.  

The client is responsible for all uses of logo use and should consider what logos they use in their video.  Placing a logo in a video that you are no longer able to use could cause you problems as a business owner and ultimate loss or your investment.  

Safe and Trusted Canada gives video credits to businesses that refer other businesses to our Site and that referral becomes a paid subscription type for one year.  

See Samples of our videos that we have done for clients.

 

 

 

How to Increase Views for Subscriptions

Our system offers increased traffic to your profile regardless of subscription type.

The number of views for your business profile is always private to the business account holder only. 

Traffic to your profile increases if you have the following 

  • Professional presentation of your business.
  • List your business credentials and contractor credentials. 
  • Link your website your profile on Safe and Trusted Canada.
  • Ask customers to review your business.  
  • List all your affiliations. 

See the video tutorial for more information. 

You will be able to find the embedded code in your content management area.  You have the link in your live business profile that you can send to all your customers to gather more reviews,  You have the ability to maximize your business profile and ensure that all your business credentials are known. If you are a contractor this is essential.  Place links to all your affiliations. 

Although we know that paid account subscriptions bring more traffic to your business, the Site does not market itself based on guaranteed views. 

Should you be concerned about value we suggest that you start out with a free Basic Subscription.  If you are concerned with the value of a paid subscription we suggest you purchase a monthly subscription that can be cancelled with 60 days notice.   The Site never wants to be in a position where you are paying for any services where you as a business owner do not see the value. 

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.

When Do We Archive a Business?

A business in the marketplace has links to social media, review sites, and business directories, affiliations, and of course the website of the business.

Safe and Trusted Canada provides links to everything that we can readily find about the business.   The links could show excellence or need for improvement.  

Safe and Trusted Canada allows the consumer to make their decisions on the quality of the links as well as the quality of the content.  There is no interpretation nor does Safe and Trusted Canada endorse, validate, recommend or suggest a business.  We provide a system where the consumer sorts and selects companies based on the criteria the user feels important to them.  

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 Better Business Bureau and Google that your business is no longer in operation. They can contact you directly if required.    

Account Holders – To protect consumers, other businesses, and the integrity of the Site, Account holders have higher standards and greater responsibilities as a business.

The reason for this is that the company is now placing content on our Site and has control over reviews, placement of now hiring links, links to affiliations, and can place their credentials into their business profile. 

Should an account no longer be in operation, the business changes from account status to an Information Only profile?  If the firm develops an F-Rating with Better Business Bureau, or reviews show that the company profile shows concerns, the business profile becomes an information Only profile.  

The company develops an alert if they place credentials into their business profile they do not possess or post reviews on their profile from people connected directly or indirectly with the firm. Archival cannot happen if the business has an alert. See Alerts. 

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.
