See the Current Discounts. 

We have had several subscription requests from marketers.  We work with the business owner and not marketers.  Marketers are interested in Search Engine Optimization and backlinks.  Safe and Trusted Canada is interested in an accurate representation of the company including business and contractor credentials.   The business owner can authorize as many accounts as necessary to handle their business interests for one particular company or multiple businesses.  Our focus is on Canada as our name implies. 

Our platform is unique and provides a system for legitimate businesses to market to consumers in a way that makes it easier for both the business and the consumer.

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.  Our system makes it easy for the business.  See the video below.

 

Your business is important to you.  Why waste your time and money.  Let us generate your profile for you so that you can determine what your best options are for your business.  All that is required is an email from the owner of the business. We only deal with the business owner or their designated marketing staff.  The reason for this is we want your profile maximized with you the owner in full control through your account management platform. 

Premium Subscriptions Increase Views

See the video about the Plus Subscription below. 

 

This account type provides the account holder with access to place up to 20 subcategories into their profile.  The account holder has the ability to place that profile in up to 1 trade area adjacent to the business location.   Hotel and Restaurant businesses are increased to 40 subcategories to ensure a full understanding of amenities and menus. 

Payments can be made by credit card, cheque or electronic transfer. 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.

The business is in the fourth tier of the database.  See the video.

Display of the business occurs above Information Only Profiles, Basic Subscriptions, andPlus Subscriptions who may have signed up for the Plus Subscription after your business in your region or categories.  Your listed business credentials also impact the order of display.  The Plus Subscription is listed according to our Business Order of Display

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 

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 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.

What is your business credentials score?  See the video.

  

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.

The credential score for hotels and restaurants is the composite review done by Safe and Trusted Canada.  All the review sites for a composite review and that average is the credentials score for that business. 

Link to all your national affiliations like BBB and Chamber of Commerce.  See the video. 

 

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.  go to the content management area in the Basic area and under affiliations list each of them.  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.      

See the whole picture about a business.  See the video

 

One of our platform’s benefits 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 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.  See the tutorial   

See the video about reviews.

 

All reviews are monitored and posted by the business owner.  The advantage here is that you are always on top of your business as a business owner.  You can 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 can 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. 

One of the problems with reviews is that too often a business is blindsided by a negative review.  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 feedback from their customers and instantly become aware of issues unknown to the business owner.

Use proactive reviews to ensure that issues are quickly identified to the business owner.  This will enable the business owner to quickly mitigate issues and mediate problems quickly with customers before they escalate out of hand with reviews on websites or even complaints to Better Business Bureau. 

Is Your Business Hiring Staff.  We can help you with that.  See the video

 

Since the above video was made, we have made changes to our system. The business will now go to their content management area and select the Now Hiring area.  All the business owner has to do is place content into the area as to what they are looking for in terms of staffing requirements. There is no category assignment.  

If the business has any paid subscription they can place a link along with content into their Now Hiring area.   The link will allow the consumer to place the link in their browser and research further.   If the business has a Professional  Subscription then the link automatically shortens taking the potential consumer to your website or any other link that would highlight further your Now Hiring offer. 

If the business has a Standard, Advanced or Professional subscription they would also be able to add a downloadable PDF for potential hires with even more detail as to applying for a position at their particular business. 

The information will be there for every view in all your business categories and trade areas posted for your subscription type.  All communication between the business owner and the prospective new hire is confidential to each other.  Safe and Trusted Canada does not intervene between the parties involved.   

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. 

Does your business use discounts or promotions.  See the video

 

Since the above video was made, we have made changes to our system. The business will now go to their content management area and select the Discounts & Promotions area. All the business owner has to do is place content into the area as to what they are offering as a discount or promotion to the consumer.  There are no category assignments. 

If the business has any paid subscription they can place a link along with content into their Promotions and Discounts area.   The link will allow the consumer to place the link in their browser and research further.   If the business has a Professional  Subscription then the link automatically shortens taking the potential consumer to your website or any other link that would highlight further your promotional offers. 

If the business has a Standard, Advanced or Professional subscription they would also be able to add a downloadable PDF for consumers with even more detail about the discount or promotion that the business is offering.  

The information will be there for every view in all your business categories and trade areas posted for your subscription type.  All communication between the business owner and the consumer is confidential to each other.  Safe and Trusted Canada does not intervene between the parties involved.   Businesses are reminded to abide by the Advertising Standards of Canada

We send you an MP4 of the video, so you own it forever. 

Present Your Business Basics First.  We call them credentials.  See the video.

Our content management system allows the business unlimited options including the ability to manage, market, and grow their business. 

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 profile. The business owner can ask all the customers for reviews, post the reviews, and handle private issues.  The business owner must ensure that they do not post reviews from anyone connected with their company. See Alerts.

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. 

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The company may also be archived.

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 the subscription type and date added to our database.  This will give great businesses, even more, an opportunity to shine on our database. 

The Site automatically reduces the subscription to an Information Only profile should the subscription be cancelled.  The company may also be archived.

Grow Your Business Faster for Your Accommodation

Safe and Trusted Canada developed a system for displaying accommodations and hotels.   As the Site intends to present truthful and transparent information to consumers here is how it works. 

The Site can list any accommodation as an Information Only profile. The Information Only profile may be removed or modified at any time if the business is no longer in operation.   See our application.  Grow your Business Faster

The Site develops the profile with information already present on the internet.  This includes links to the accommodation including review links and social media links. Safe and Trusted Canada places more categories into the profile as well as trade areas.  Some hotels may be in up to 50 trade areas so that the consumer can choose an area rather than a specific location.   This also gives smaller trade areas equal opportunity to attract guests from major population areas.  See example

 

Safe and Trusted Canada may complete a composite review about the accommodation based on all the review sites.  Our composite reviews generally show that most review sites are generally close to each other in terms of the overall rating of the accommodation.  The composite review is instrumental in the positioning of the accommodation as it becomes the credibility score of the accommodation. 

Your hotel may not have a credibility score in place as there is insufficient information or our staff have missed this for your business.   Please send us an email so that we can handle this promptly for your business.  Credibility scores determine placement in the Safe and Trusted database and those without a score are seen last in our database.  The consumer will still be able to see links to multiple review sites for the property. 

Our content management system allows the business owner to change the content at any time through their account.  If we receive approval from the business owner, then we transfer appropriate data from your website into our system.  This saves the business owner time, money and most of all gives it an instant presentation.  All that is needed is an email from the actual business owner or the assigned marketing representative by the owner. 

 

The accommodation may apply for a Basic Subscription.  If it does then the accommodation can display key elements about their business including their logo, what makes them different, who their ideal client is and much more.   The Basic Subscription is at no cost.  This will move the accommodation ahead of all other Information Only profiles.  The accommodation is displayed according to their credibility score.  See the Basic Subscription

The Plus Subscription is at $99.00 Canada-wide.  The accommodation has the ability to remove any review sites in their profile with the exception of Google and Better Business Bureau.   This will move the accommodation ahead of all other Information Only profiles and Basic Subscriptions.  The accommodation is displayed according to their credibility score.  See the Plus Subscription.  

The accommodation may apply for the Standard Subscription.  If it does then the accommodation can display everything that is included in the Basic Subscription and Plus Subscription for $199.00 Canada-wide.

The accommodation may apply for the Professional  Subscription.  If it does then the accommodation can display everything that is included in the Basic, Plus and Standard and Advanced Subscriptions for $599.00 Canada-wide.

This will move the accommodation ahead of all other Information Only profiles and subscription types.  As there are now more categories available the accommodation may also access the Jobs and Promotions categories.    The accommodation is displayed according to the credibility score.  See the Professional Subscription.
