"My business lives and dies by the trust of my customers, and I want to show potential customers that my website and my business can be trusted," said Ed Coyne, owner of Angelo PC.
Helsinki, Finland (PRWEB) November 3, 2009
WOT Services Ltd, the company behind the reputation rating service Web of Trust, launched the Community Trust Network (CTN), a program that gives websites with superior reputations tools to publicize their trustworthiness and to collect ratings and feedback in a neutral way. The end result for website owners is that they attract new visitors, improve their reputation, and boost sales by increasing confidence and trust.
Today's Internet surfers use online tools like WOT to share their experiences and express their opinions about companies. Candidates for CTN membership already have excellent or good reputations as rated by the millions of members of the WOT community. Businesses without their own mechanism to collect customer feedback use WOT's rating information to establish a fair, unbiased, easy-to-use system to collect and promote feedback and ratings that will attract new customers to their site.
"My business lives and dies by the trust of my customers, and I want to show potential customers that my website and my business can be trusted. The WOT community has rated my site highly in all categories, and with the Community Trust Network, I now have a way to communicate that to all my site's visitors," said Ed Coyne, owner of Angelo PC, in San Angelo, Texas.
The Community Trust Network includes:
- Trust seals & Rate us buttons
- A certificate with real-time WOT ratings and comments
- An easy-to-use feedback tool
- Reputation alerts
- CTN icon to help you stand out in search results
CTN's tools are flexible and easy to integrate into any website. Visitors can submit ratings for trustworthiness, vendor reliability, privacy, and child safety using the WOT reputation rating system, along with detailed comments. To make it open for all, site visitors do not have to be members of WOT to rate the site.
Membership prices begin at $19.90 per month for non-commercial sites. There is a free 30-day trial for new customers.
