Trust Guard’s parent company, Global Marketing Strategies, has been busier than usual securing websites, making online consumers safer than ever, and helping e-commerce business owners make a lot more money than they would without us – guaranteed. Here are three of the accomplishments we achieved in 2017:
For the second time in as many years, Shopper Approved, our rating and review software, was named by Inc. 500 as one of the fastest growing American-based companies. That is quite an honor for just one year. But to do it in two consecutive years shows how many business owners around the world have benefited from more positive ratings and reviews than any other brand.
Free from Record-Breaking Hacks
While 2017 experienced the worst and most data breaches so far according to identityforce.com, Trust Guard’s daily security scanned customers, however, have remained free from such breaches. According to the article, here are just a few of the popular companies that have been hacked: ESEA, XBox, PSP, IHG, Arby’s, River City Media, Verifone, Dun & Bradstreet, Sax Fifth Avenue, FAFSA, and Chipotle. The total number of hacked sites surpassed 10 million. If you want to do everything possible to protect yourself from hackers, upgrade to daily PCI compliant scanning. If you haven’t already, you can do so through your Trust Guard member control panel.
100,000 New Clients in 2017
New Live Chat Mobile App
We’ve also created a new Android app to accompany our live chat and help desk software called Rhino Support. Now, business owners can answer live chats at home, the beach, the store or anywhere else they happen to be. We’ve got the best customer service platform at the best price – starting at only $15 a month! Look for our iOS app in spring of 2018.
There are a lot of other things we’ve achieved, like helping an orphanage in Guatemala build a housing unit. This allowed siblings to live closer together. It’s been a good year for us and we want to sincerely thank our employees, partners and customers who have made it all possible. We appreciate your loyalty and look forward to an even better year next year!
