What is your business credentials score with consumers? See the video.
Consumers can easily search for a business and select the business they want based on credentials.
Is the Advertised Name registered? Is the business licensed for the business category and city or town? How many years they have been in business is also a factor. You must guarantee that the listed business credentials are correct if you are a business owner. Your credentials can be viewed and searched by consumers. The Site will not score or validate the credentials.
If you are a contractor, in addition to the above, do you carry worker's compensation and liability insurance and do you provide written contracts and warranty? So, in addition to the subscription level, contractor credentials provide the consumer with the separation needed between one business and another. A business must guarantee that the listed contractor's credentials are accurate. Your credentials can be viewed and searched by consumers. The Site will not score or validate the 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.
In all cases, consumers will evaluate and make their own decisions.
The business is in the third tier of the database. See the video.
Display of the business occurs above Information Only Profiles, Basic Subscriptions, Plus Subscriptions and Standard Subscriptions and any others who may have signed up for the Standard Subscription after your business in your region or categories.

Bypass Your competition. 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 the business can place their contact information, links to their social media, business credentials, and links to all their review sites.

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 request the deletion of customer reviews or even ask the customer for a new review. As a business, you are not allowed to review your own business. You can ask for reviews from all your customers without worrying about what the review will say. Your advantage is that you are always on top of your business.
One of the problems with reviews is that, too often, a negative review 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 ask for feedback from their customers proactively 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.

Our content management system allows businesses unlimited options, including managing, marketing, and growing 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 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.
