How do I find trusted recommendations using the Circle of Trust?
The Circle of Trust app is easy to use. Simply sign up, log in, and connect with your friends and family, and quickly find their recommended businesses by searching for a sector or service.
I’m a small business owner. How will the Circle of Trust help me?
Individuals are always on the lookout for trusted recommendations. Research shows that people are 90% more likely to trust and buy from a brand recommended by a friend*. So, we’ve created a place where individuals can access recommended businesses from the people they know and trust at the click of a button. The Circle of Trust is full of people looking for trusted businesses like you.
Search results don’t favour businesses with the biggest advertising budgets. Visibility is determined by the quality of your work and the number of people who choose to add you to their circle. You can increase your visibility within search results by inviting your current customer base.
Is the Circle of Trust easy to use?
Absolutely. We have built the Circle of Trust in a way that anyone can use it. Once you have set up your profile, in just a few simple steps, you can access recommendations from those you trust. Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve got you covered.
There are so many ways to find recommendations. How is the Circle of Trust different from Googling or texting a friend?
Finding reliable recommendations isn’t always easy. It often involves endless searches and group texts, and still, the results don't always hit the mark. The Circle of Trust changes the game by granting you instant access to recommendations from people you trust, all with a simple click. You can even ‘pin’ businesses for future reference.
Trust the person. Trust the recommendation.
What sectors or services does the Circle of Trust cover?
The Circle of Trust has been created for all sectors and services. From hairdressers to marketing agencies, to plumbers, and gardeners. Whatever businesses or services you are looking for in your personal or professional life, we’ve got you covered.
What if I own more than one business, a chain of businesses, or have more than 250 employees?
If you operate multiple businesses or a chain of them, we strongly suggest creating individual profiles for each business or branch. This will make it easier for customers to recommend you and new customers to find you.
If you are a large organisation with over 250 employees, please get in touch via our contact us page, our team will be happy to discuss your requirements and create a bespoke plan that works for you.
Is there a cost to creating a business profile?
You can create a profile safe in the knowledge that you will not need to sign up for a paid subscription right away. Creating a profile now means that you can upgrade to a paid subscription when you are ready to do so.
A paid subscription allows you to use the Circle of Trust functionality as a business. The subscription will allow your business to appear in search results, be visible to customers and potential customers, and allow people to add your business to their recommended circles. Customers can also ‘pin’ your business for their future reference.
