Trusted is thrilled & excited to announce that we are launching our 2nd TRUSTED DIRECTORY in Regina, Saskatchewan on April 16th 2012 ... Trusted Regina the REGINA DIRECTORY of Excellence and local experts!
We have been in the Regina market for a number of months knocking on doors and working especially hard to find businesses who share our philosophies and who demonstrated to us that they operate with the level of integrity in business that we demand to be part of the amazing Trusted network we are building in the fine province of Saskatchewan. We spoke to many members of the public, business community and even members of Saskatchewan Government to find out who to approach with the opportunity to be involved in something different,unique and absolutely 100% customer service focused.
We look for businesses who are local experts, who sign up to share their knowledge with the public ..freely...to help them even if they haven't met them yet....through our Trusted Tips blogs
So Regina watch out and listen for us on that day and EVERY Day after as we hit the airwaves on Big Dog, The Wolf, CKRM, My 92.1 and CJTR Regina Community Radio ...look for us on the Digital Skies Network ...and watch out for the Flyers and Stickers everywhere .....know that when you choose a Trusted business they come with GUARANTEES ..and that Trusted is the SMART & SIMPLE CHOICE we do all the research for you ..so you don't have to .....
www.trustedregina.com has already had a soft launch in Regina as we run on 2 Digital skies Electronic Billboards ( TJ's Pizza & Galon Insurance signs) in the city calling for Nominations.....if you know good business there DO let us know as we are still looking for AMAZING busineses in many catgories..go to the website NOMINATE section HERE ..if you do this BEFORE April 15th you will be entered in the draw to win $1000 cash..which will be drawn that day ( Do not forget to put your name and contact details so we can contact you if you win) ..we also have a 1/ 2 page ad in both the Regina and Saskatoon sections of the 2012 Tourism Saskatchewan Discovery Guide that has 175,000 copies province wide!!
As well as the newest and in our opinion BEST Magazine in the Province PINK magazine ..which is a locally published Saskatchewan Women focused Publication..the half pages run under a Column by the Trusted founder Sara Wheelwright ...who shares her thoughts on being a Woman entrepreneur in Saskatchewan
So you see..we do things differently at Trusted ...from beginning to end and everything in between....and nothing demonstrates that more than our SABEX Application for Marketing that we submitted ..and then uploaded the whole thing to our YOU TUBE Channel
See how we " THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX " here at Trusted in this video ..ENJOY!!!
Stay Trusted my friends ..SAFE and TRUSTED CANADA.

www.trustedregina.com is pleased to announce a new partnership with www.kinderbuzz.com . For those of you Mothers, Fathers and Families that haven't heard of Kinderbuzz yet, we can tell you that www.kinderbuzz.com is the most comprehensive online publication for families in Regina and surrounding areas. They have a good following on Facebook ( Click here to FAN ) where they aregreat at keeping you updated on whats going on .....you can follow them here on Twitter too. ...or just click on their lovely banner ad on www.trustedregina.com home page!
Trusted saw immediately that the demographic of Kinderbuzz is very similar to the demographics of people that are drawn to and will use Trusted...Our Facebook fans are predominantly female in Saskatoon and we imagine that will be the same in Regina ..and most fall in the 25-45 age bracket......most are busy parents, who like to have centralised places to provide answers rather than trawling all over town ( or the web..which can take just as long sometimes) trying to find stuff out.Kinderbuzz offers great opinions, insight and up to date news and info for everything family and they love the whole Trusted Idea...like Trusted it was founded by women ..and currently it is also an all women team..we have so much in common and we look forward to promoting and endorsing them across our social networks...and sharing their successes and supporting them in all they do!
