Today VeriSign announced a new partnership with MerchantCircle that helps small businesses drive more happy customers to their doorstep (or home page). MerchantCircle is the nation's largest social network of local business owners. Now its 1.3 million members can standout from the competition in local search results and build increased confidence
with consumers by displaying the VeriSign Trust Seal.
Local and small businesses need a high-impact online presence to succeed. They have
built their reputation in their neighborhoods, but often have difficulty establishing trust on the vast online world. The VeriSign Trust Seal helps bring
that same level of trust to these local businesses' online presence.
Small businesses can establish
consumer confidence and credibility by
leveraging the highly recognized and trusted VeriSign seal. As a result, they get more of what all local businesses need:
- more customers coming in (in person or online)
- differentiation from the competition
- ... and ultimately more sales
When a business in MerchantCircle's network purchases the VeriSign Trust
Seal as a part of its membership, VeriSign independently
authenticates the company using a multi-step verification
process. Then members automatically have the seal displayed in their profile and can post the seal on their website.
