The reputation of a business is an extremely valuable commodity. If customers believe an organization is trustworthy and will do what they promise, that builds the foundation for a successful company. Trusted Local Partners can effectively show directory owners and other businesses their integrity and dedication to best practices with an ADP seal.
How to Use the Trusted Local Partner Seal to Demonstrate Trust
The Trusted Local Partner™ Seal shows a holder has been verified and proven to meet high standards. Placed on a website or listed on the ADP website and on the Trusted Local Directory™, the seal speaks volumes to potential partners. Here’s some ways you can use the Trusted Local Partner Seal to build trust.
Add the Trusted Local Partner Badge to Your Website
A seal can garner immediate trust from site visitors. Companies need to feel confident when working alongside partners. A seal shows that the Trusted Local Partner has been scrutinized and verified to be of the highest caliber. When a business receives the Trusted Local Partner Seal, they receive an embed script via email they can use to easily add the seal on their website.
Promote Your Trusted Partner Profile
Trusted Local Partners are listed on the ADP website, providing much-needed credibility. A business could direct visitors to their profile as a quick way to build immediate trust. Here is an example of how that looks. Appearing alongside other trusted partners and publishers inspires confidence within the industry. Additionally, partners are listed on the Trusted Local Directory. Here is an example of how an optimized listing on the Trusted Local Directory can look.
Include the Seal in Your Printed Marketing Materials
It has become harder to gain attention with printed marketing content. A seal can grab the attention of a reader, showing the material is authentic and that the partner has been analyzed for reliability and dedication to best practices.
Promote on Social Media
Signs of credibility are incredibly valuable on social media. A verification symbol, for example, instantly helps a profile stand out. A Trusted Local Partner Seal can have a similar impact, indicating to users that a business is credible. Adding the badge to your cover art is an excellent way to accomplish this, for example.
