S & E Trusted Online Directories founder shares a business tip with small businesses in Saskatoon and beyond. How to do advertising effectively and why to advertise period!
S & E Trusted Online Directories was a finalist for Marketing for the prestigious Saskatchewan Chamber of commerce ABEX Awards 2012, and it was their innovative marketing strategies they use to advertise www.trustedsaskatoon.com and www.trustedregina.com that saw them recognized across the province after less than 18months in business.
The Trusted group of local directories www.trustedsaskatoon.com and www.trustedregina.com really are the smart and simple choice.
So what is Sara Wheelwrights, our founders background?
Here she shares some of her story and some big goals!
" I've been immersed in the wonderful world of marketing, advertising and business since 1992. I persuaded business owners to buy Yellow pages, Internet, Pharmaceuticals and Radio over the years, very succesfully, before I decided to take the leap and start my own marketing/ advertising company. I founded S & E Trusted Online Directories in 2011 after thinking about the idea for years.
At Trusted we ONLY promote and do business with trustworthy locally accountable businesses. I am confident that before I created the Trusted concept, that these wonderful local businesses had no where to turn to in the advertising world that really understood how great they are, and truly valued the really important qualities of honesty amd integrity above the endless quest for MORE SALES and advertising revenue.
My primary goal is to ensure that all the Trusted partners are well represented by my Trusted team, and that the public in the cities we service are informed about and directed to Trusted businesses as the preferred choice! My company communicates daily to the public via many platforms and we help them understand why and how the TRUSTED businesses stand apart from their local competition by being Trusted. We commit to always assisting the public in the cities we serve, by providing quick and easy access to great retail and service providers.
I aim to take Trusted nationwide within 3 years, I never think small it would be a disservice to my 3 children, my supporters, my clients and to the concept of 'being' Trusted "
The Trusted Team is absolutely THRILLED, Excited & Proud to announce that S & E Trusted Online Directory - the business that owns the www.trustedsaskatoon.com , www.trustedregina.com online directories and www.trustedcanada.com has just been announced as one of the 5 FINALISTS for the 2012 ABEX award for Marketing -These are the Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce awards for excellence in business!
