Trusted Directories Latest News

The Trusted team are excited to announce that TrustedCalgary.com is coming to Calgary!


What are Trusted Online Directories? 

The Trusted Online Directories www.trustedsaskatoon.com and www.trustedregina.com have been established in Saskatchewan now for over 6 and 5 years respectively. The concept is pretty simple, our team seeks out locally owned, accountable businesses in the cities we serve. Then, after verifying that they are indeed the ' real deal',  with our unique Trusted Verification process, we sign them to an annual contract. By signing that contract, the companies agree to uphold the 5 Trusted Guarantees of Service . 


Once businesses qualify to become Trusted Directory partners, we promote them to the public via a cohesive and effective local marketing campaign both on and offline. Trusted is an awesome service for the public, our founder, an immigrant, had the idea after struggling to find great local businesses in Saskatoon! The public love the ease of choosing a local business from a local, verified and restricted list, without the risk of a bad experience. 

Trusted is a unique branding and sales tool for businesses. Trusted offers quality focused local businesses a unique way to differentiate themselves from their competition, attract new customers, build loyalty with existing customers and increase visibility in their home city. We restrict the number of businesses in each category, which benefits the business AND the consumers who are overwhelmed with choices on Google! 

The Trusted team gets to know our partners, this means we can market them better than anyone else!! Essentially, we are local marketing experts and our products are the businesses we partner with. Trusted has helped businesses across Saskatchewan go from surviving to thriving and we offer absolute and undeniable measurability and results! 


 

We have worked out any kinks over the last 6 years and added some new and awesome features in the last 12 months. Individual listing pages for each business listing, an area to embed a YouTube video in each partners page and more! We have fine tuned our directory marketing strategy too, picking up a display cabinet full of local and international marketing and entrepreneur awards on the way. Most recently our founder Sara Wheelwright was the recipient of a 2017 NEYA Award (Saskatchewan Newcomer Entrepreneur of the Year Award) in the growth category.  We also launched www.trustedmarketingservices.com in 2014, a full service marketing agency that offers support, free training sessions and additional advertising products to the Trusted Partners and others. 


 

The Trusted Online Directories concept works! 

We know what we are doing when it comes to marketing and promoting locally owned and accountable quality businesses. The team feels 2017 is the right time to introduce the Trusted Directories as an advertising medium to locally owned and reputable businesses in cities outside the borders of Saskatchewan, starting with our cousins in Calgary!  We have 100's of success stories to share across the many industry sectors we cover, from retail to service providers. We know that essentially, given the choice, consumers want to deal with trustworthy, local businesses.
