Subject: Saskatoon Website Business Nomination

Comments: I visited Saskatoon recently and heard your radio ads, as i thought your website sounded like an excellent idea...when are you coming to Calgary? I stayed at The Delta Bessborough and had an excellent experience at The Damara Day Spa...as good as anywhere I have been, and they are new, you should have them on your site . Thank you for providing Trusted it really is an excellent resource for visitors and i am guessing residents alike. Your city really is starting to have a buzz! A Happy tourist from Alberta.

We also get a lot of feedback from the public after they choose a Trusted business...see below..

Saskatoon Website Comments from: Trish Voldeng

Comments:. I take auto repairs to Glenwood, they are fantastic. Rob just put on a ladies car care clinic and all the staff were really encouraging to us ladies to do some hands on with our vehicles. I trust these guys completely with my auto needs. Thanks.

Trusted appreciates when you take the time to tell us about good businesses…either through the website’s contact us/ nominate a business http://www.trustedsaskatoon.com/nominate.aspx or through our social media on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Keep the positive spirit going, and remember that our belief is that good businesses deserve promotion…by doing that Trusted will eventually influence all businesses in all of our Trusted cities to raise their standards!

Talking about great businesses we have 2 new Trusted Saskatoon businesses to brag about today, which all definitely deserve the promotion and exposure to the public that we are going to shower upon them.

Galon Insurance our 2nd Trusted Saskatoon Insurance listing

Insurance is one of those things that most people don’t like spending money on right? Who thinks that they are going to have an accident or a flood or a crop failure….you get through the year with no incident and then you feel like you paid that premium again for nothing….and anyway, all the brokers offer the same service and coverage and it all costs the same everywhere doesn’t it?

Trusted is here to tell you NO is the resounding answer to all of those questions… It really is worth your while doing research on the Insurance company you are currently with, to see what they are doing for you …and we would definitely recommend you putting Galon Insurance on your short list in Saskatoon!

If you check out their trusted Saskatoon listing here, you can read the testimonials from Galon’s happy clients, the most telling of which is the one that said “Unlike my previous experience, Galon showed me rates from a number of companies, finding me the proper coverage at a better rate than I had ever paid!” . It is not all about price for a lot of people, in fact price becomes less of an issue if the experience and level of service is outstanding, and we are happy to say that Galon Insurance ticks all of those boxes too… Galon Insurance Brokers are a family business now into the 3rd generation, and Jeff Galon has just as much passion for the business as his Grandparents John & Eleanor Galon did when they started it in 1963…they now have 2 locations in Saskatoon and 2 in Regina and the Galon family are dedicated to providing the best possible experience for their clients…doesn’t matter if that is for farmers crop insurance, motor license issuing, home and commercial insurance or even passport photos …they offer wonderful extended hours to meet their clients busy lives and they are open 7 days a week ..in fact they are only closed 3 days a year!!!! They even offer Mortgage broker services too!

Welcome Jeff Galon and the Galon team, we are proud to brag about you! Click here to see the great pic of John & Eleanor Galon with their family in the 60’s and beyond. http://www.galoninsurance.com/AllAboutUs/tabid/132/AlbumID/542-4/Default.aspx

Stay Trusted my friends..SAFE and TRUSTED of course!

 

Plan for tomorrow today . Trusted tips from our experts on Trustedsaskatoon.com, Saskatoons directory of choice..and some interesting facts on the Internet.

The colder weather is drawing in , and the days are getting shorter in Saskatchewan..Summer is over, and what a Summer it was.....best in years ..and people definitely made the most of it!

Trusted monitors webtraffic on our websites and others, and knows that the Summer ( generally early June- beginning of September) is the 'slowest ' time for internet traffic as a whole...think about it ..would you rather be sat on the deck in the sun after work , or sat on the computer....weekends are spent at the lake or just outside soaking up the warmth..most internet useage happens at work in the Summer...or perhaps at home on a rainy weekend ( thankfully we didn't have many of those this year!) .....as the fall turns to Winter people begin to gravitate back to their laptops and computers at home ..to source entertainment, engage in socialmedia ..and to do RESEARCH on products and services BEFORE they purchase.

95% of Canadas 25million internet users do research online .....and it takes up ALOT of time to do that research..  

If the future is digital, it seems Canadians are ahead of their time. Canucks spend more time online than anyone else on Earth, according to new data from Web research firm comScore. And it’s not even by a small margin – the average Canadian spends 43.5 hours a month on the Web, almost twice the worldwide average of 23.1 hours. Both male and female Canadian Internet users spent much of their time on directory sites (the single most popular category for men, followed by photo sites and online trading). However, women visited photo sites most often, followed closely by directories and music entertainment sites....and it's not jst under 30's either as by far the fastest-growing demographic when it comes to Web usage in Canada is the 55-and-over crowd. While every other age group’s online engagement levelled off or even declined between the end of 2009 and the end of 2010, the number of older users or SILVER SURFERS jumped by 12 per cent!*

Trusted is here to save people some of that extensive research time, so you can spend more time doing the fun stuff...and we wanted to share some tips with you from some of our experts on www.trustedsaskatoon.com ..specifically when it comes to planning and researching renovations to your home. 

It seems that alot of people are talking about doing renos and improvements next year ......perhaps with tax return money , or simply because it is time to update that kitchen or finish that basement..so where do you even start the process ? Trusted was talking to Kevin, the owner of KTS Custom  ,who specialise in 're-facing' kitchens and is one of the  Trusted kitchen listings on http://www.trustedsaska Cabinetstoon.com/listings/kitchens.aspx , and she told us that most people he deals with take 6months from deciding to do ' something ' to their kitchen , to actually booking the job...so what are people doing in that time? ...well first they look at the options based upon the budget they are thinking of...and as a refaced kitchen from KTS ( when the layout of the kitchen is not altered , the cabinets themselves are kept then the doors, countertops etc..are all changed for a really ' magic' transformation) is less costly than say, a Custom Kitchen from Kevin Samms, the owner of  KTS Custom Cabinets who will design a kitchen based on your unique needs from scratch and your old kitchen will be totally removed and replaced with a stunning new one.. the TIME the reno might take may be an important factor for people to consider..refacing can take place in a few days with minimum disruption to the household, where a custom kitchen is going to take longer and involve more work..everyone is different...and the reasons you choose the option you choose is based on your unique set of needs...if you are doing other renos in the house like basement developments or even exterior work like decks , siding, roofing  etc.. the time frame from thinking about it, to deciding how to go about it, choosing the right option and then contacting the chosen Contractor or business is still not going to happen in a few days, but more likely in a few months , as we all have busy lives to work around too. 

Sara the Trusted founder was speaking to a very smart lady last week ,she had gone to Trusted to find someone to do renos on her home, she said she had read the listings on  http://www.trustedsaskatoon.com/listings/renovations.aspx over and loved the fact that there were REAL client testimonials to read, she had already had wonderful experiences with other Trusted businesses and she especially liked that all the Trusted Saskatoon businesses were contracted to the 5 Trusted Guarantees....When choosing a contractor to do a big reno , the fact that Trusted contracts them to GUARANTEE that they will

1. CHARGE THE PRICE QUOTED WITH NO SURPRISES and

2. COMPLETE THE JOB ON TIME

Means that it takes the 'risk' out of selecting a company....and also in the listing of the renovator she chose to contact it stated that the company would never rush one job to start another...and it would be smart to book in advance to ensure that you get the dates YOU want for the work you want doing.....she is planning on the renos in late Spring..and she is booking her contrator in OCTOBER..a full 6months before, and by PLANNING today she ensure that she has the contractor she wants, who she can trust, and on HER timelines. If she had done all the research then tried booking someone in April for May, chances are she would have missed the boat, and may have paid dearly for that. Contractors that can do big jobs with a few weeks notice may NOT be as good a choice as one of our Trusted Saskatoon contractor/ renovations options 3 n' 1 Construction.  

So, in conclusion, as you start researching on the internet for ideas and options..make it a priority to decide which contractors or renovation companies are part of your short list ...call them asap....as the Winter sets in they will have more time to sit down with you and offer alternatives that perhaps you weren't even aware of ( a few of Ken Eade of 3'n1 Construction's  clients told us he offered great options that they ended up going with...without his input they wouldn't have know existed)   ....try getting them to sit down with you when the snow begins to melt and the first jobs (the smart people who pre booked well in advance) of the season are starting and you may be just pulling your hair out!    

 

 

TRUST Trusted to help in the selection process..we stand behind our Trusted businesses and endorse them...not for $cash ,but because they passed our very strict application / verification process and they live by the 5 Trusted Guarantees....we find them so YOU don't have to ...WE are the ONLY directory that works for you!  

 

Stay Trusted my friends..SAFE and TRUSTED of course
