We built Verified in partnership with you in the trade; and we need your help to help it grow. Here’s how…

Share your advice with homeowners.

Rather than a subscription/lead fee, all we ask is that answer just 2 homeowner questions a month on Verified. We’ve explained the techy stuff below, but just know that your answers to these questions are important; they are what help homeowners find Verified on Google.

Share the love for Verified.

Whether you have a friend that you’d like to invite to Verified, or a family member that’s looking for a trade, make sure you tell them about Verified.

It’s the little wins that will help Verified succeed.

Have a question about Verified?

We keep Verified free because we make our money supporting brands in our industry with their marketing and sales. The more trades we support with Verified, the more value we can drive to our partner brands. It’s a true win-win.

We can’t give away all of our secrets, but we can tell you this…

We look at a number of factors when determining where your business ranks on Verified; the ones that you control are: the number of reviews you have, the number recommendations you’ve collected and the number of homeowner questions you have answered.

Hint: Do these as often as possible. 

Yes. We know that because we’ve done it before.

Tool Talk, a place where trades just like you can go and review tools, launched just over 2 years ago.

That website now gets over 100,000 views a month on Google because of the reviews published by you in the trade, so we’re using the same trick for Verified to help you win work for free.

But rather than reviewing tools, we’re asking you to answer questions from homeowners.

Why? Homeowners go to Google to undertake research before hiring a trade.

So, when a homeowner searches on Google: “how much is a house rewire?”, they’ll find the Verified website with advice from 1000’s of trades, and they’ll then be prompted to hire a trade from the community; in other words, they’ll be prompted to hire YOU.

Very. It takes 3-5 minutes to join. All you need to do is add your business details, add a company description, select your skills and send across your public liability insurance certificate so we can make sure you’re insured.

It’s easy to collect reviews/recommendations on Verified. You can send the person a link to your profile, or you can use our app to send a pre-populated message via text, email, Facebook or whatever you use asking them to leave a review/recommendation on your profile.

Reviews come from homeowners, recommendations come from trades.

Lot’s of trades work together with other trades, and we think it’s only fair that they, like homeowners, can write what they think about you and your business too.

We post regular updates in the Expert Trades Facebook Group, but the best place to keep up to date with what’s going on with Verified is by listening to our podcast Trade Talk, where we talk about everything from the number of trades on Verified, all the way to how well we’re performing on Google.
