Ben Wanner, the owner of Across The Board Inspections, was looking for a fresh new look for his company website. His old site was looking dated, and he felt it didn’t represent his companies character and brand as effectively as it should do. 

” People are going to Google first these days when they want anything, and more and more % of our leads were coming from online rather than word of mouth like they used to. I recently updated the company logo, and knew the website was next to freshen up” Ben Wanner, Owner, Across The Board Inspections, Saskatoon

Sara Wheelwright the Trusted founder is the volunteer Chair of the 2014 Habitat for Humanity Saskatoon $100k in 100days ladies Build.

Check out this video to find out more!



Here Sara talks about it to us and she sends out a challenge to Saskatoon ladies! 



" With your help Habitat for Humanity Saskatoon can raise $100,000 in 100 days, which is the funding needed to build a Habitat home for a family.

-Imagine paying over 60% of your monthly income for rent for a small apartment that is not safe for your family.

-Imagine having to choose between paying the power bill, so that the lights stayed on another month, and buying groceries.

This is reality for too many Saskatoon families. The need for affordable housing has never been greater in our city. It’s not just stroking a cheque....there is more ( if you want it )

Ladies, beyond the extremely generous act of giving ( or raising) the $1000, this initiative is unique, as we also includes many EXTRAS! 

**If you choose to be 1 of the 100 women, in Feb 2015 you will be treated to an exclusive 100 in 100 Red Carpet Extravaganza Party to celebrate achieving this amazing goal ( anyone that knows me, knows I throw a heck of a party! Not to be missed)

**Be part of the build itself – offer your skills ( and / or your families, employees, team members or fellow fundraisers skills ) on build days throughout the year, and work alongside the families that will benefit from this extraordinary fundraiser- as they pour their own sweat equity into building the home they have always longed for !!

BE PART OF THE SOLUTION Last year in Regina $100,000 was raised in just 49 days. ( I think we can beat them …)

Please forward this post and CHALLENGE your friends to join us as part of this exciting campaign.

The 100 days started September, 15, 2015 it end on Christmas Eve 

To show my commitment I pledge $2000 - for Trusted's donation - so myself and Leanna Keyes the Trusted Saskatoon consultant are 2 of the 100...I know that we already have pledges in ..and that as i write this events are being organized to raise money - if you can't donate $1000, i urge you to think out side the box on how you can contribute - share this post on social media , attend the events to raise money BE INVOLVED !

Trusted Directories team share latest stats on Canadian Connectivity - proving the time to get mobile in business is NOW

Trusted Directories team share latest stats on Canadian Connectivity - proving the time to get mobile in business is NOW

posted by Trusted Canada | June 1, 2013 09:29


The Trusted team strives to keep up with the innovations in marketing and advertising as they happen.. we 'WALK the WALK and TALK the TALK' . Trusted is  super active ( and effective) on our many  (SM's) social media platforms, we blog consistently and we have a fantastic new Trusted App.

' New media ' is constantly changing and it is important as a business owner and / or marketing person to take the time to keep yourself informed (and on track) with new developments, so you can see how they may influence and affect your businesses bottom line now and in the future.

When we find great information we share it with our partners and friends here on the Trusted Canada blog and in person, after all, that's what being social is all about.

The Trusted Directories mandate is to make consumers life easier by promoting and supporting GREAT local SMB's ( Small Medium Businesses) because we realize without them in a marketplace offering great service and local accountability we would all suffer...they are the true life blood of the economy, the worms in the dirt, and it's important that they are supported and that they are encouraged to make time to keep up with consumer trends and habits.       


Canadian connectivity and mobile trends...why it's important to have an online AND mobile presence in business today

( and if not plan for it soon!)



  • Canadian consumers are WAY ahead of the rest of the World when it comes to Online and mobile usage- spending on average 17.5hous a week online!   
  • Over 80% of the population has internet access, and more and more Canucks are signing up daily and embracing social media via smartphones. 
  • Canadian watch more videos online each month than any other nation on Earth.
  • The average Canadian consumer is plugged-in everywhere!

In the average Canadian home it is not uncommon to have 10 + points of internet access ( multiple smart phones, desktops, tablets, laptops, ipods, smart TVs, online gaming system's like Play Stations, Digital Media receivers like Boxee's or Apple TV's) . Canadians access the internet on the go, at work, while watching TV, and while shopping ( who hasn't check a bottle of win on an App or done a quick internet scan to price check on an item you are considering buying? ). So it really doesn't make ANY sense that Canadian businesses are still lagging when it comes to integrating ecommerce and mobile marketing into their marketing strategy. If they want to engage with the constantly increasing online Canadian consumers, businesses must take action to increase their online activity to have a chance of ' getting the sale' .

Marketing experts have been telling us for 2+ years now that “mobile is the next big thing.” ..and guess what it is HERE! 


Local SMB's need to Adapt and Grow ..or they will SUCK, because if they aren't where their customers are looking for them,  they will lose the sale to someone that is! Chances are that someone is a BIG BOX that has been waiting for the opportunity to take the business, with a department of marketers who are in step with what's been happening and who have everything already in place to make the experience as smooth as possible for customers to switch their business over or new customers to choose them.

Here is a great Infographic from 6SMarketing that does a great job of laying out EXACTLY where Canadian connectivity was at in 2012..and it isn't decreasing that's for sure! Some truly startling stats ( from GOOGLE ) that really do prove our point!


So what do we know for sure?  

This ' interweb thingy'  isn't going away,  social is vital for business success NOW (and in the future) and mobile IS an important factor and SHOULD be an important consideration in any SMB's marketing strategy (especially in their website design).

Even if you personally don't feel like you and your social group of peers are as connected as the stats we have shared, even if you don't personally like to be online so much, even if it 's not how YOU do business....take heed of this great saying that we use all the time to prospective clients who struggle with our concept and way of doing things..

"The Fisherman doesn't have to eat the worm's not MEANT for him!"
