Why was the Trusted Local Directory Created?

Trusted Local Business Seal powered by the Association of Directory Publishers

The Trusted Local Directory™ was developed with you – the consumer - in mind. Today’s customers are more confused than ever with which company to do business with. With so many choices who can they trust? The businesses in the Directory that earn the Trusted Local Directory Seal are the companies that buyers searching for products or services will want to do business with because they have been determined to be trustworthy by the Association and an independent Board of Reviewers.

When companies apply for the Trusted Local Business™ Seal they are thoroughly investigated. Many questions consumers have are answered. Is this business who they say they are? Are they located where they advertise they are? Is this the correct phone number? These are just a few of the many questions. It is only after all the company’s data is verified and the Association believes you can trust doing business with them, that they receive the trusted Seal.
