CertainShops is an exclusive group of trusted & personally recommended professionals. I talk to their previous clients & ask for your feedback. Only then are the applauded professionals given a CertainShops seal of approval & allowed on.
Just before 'CertainShops - professionals online' was born in November 2006, knowing whom to trust and which professionals we should use to help us start and grow a new business was a problem. Not for long. We decided that the best (and easiest) way to choose who we were going to spend our precious start up funds on was to find out what their previous clients thought about them.
Word of mouth recommendations are great, but hard to get when you are building a business alongside being a full time parent. The solution? To phone up the previous clients of professionals we were considering using. We thought this was a really good way of finding professionals we could trust - but it was time consuming. Wouldn't it be great if someone else had already done the vetting process for us?
As company director, I (Suzy) coordinate the continual evolution of CertainShops as it becomes increasingly interactive and responsive to the needs of our growing client base. We are very strict with the business - all service providers are vetted prior to being allowed onto the site (we phone up previous clients) and they are contractually obliged to maintain a high level of customer feedback.
As the business matures, our reputation for quality continues to grow. Whether it is finding a business coach who really knows their stuff or a copy writer who has a wealth of satisfied customers, we intend to create a web site that empowers the user by making it easy to make fully informed choices about who to use without the restrictions of 9-5 working hours or geographic limitations. An innovative online directory with quality as its cornerstone.
Most of all, CertainShops is a site where the users can give feedback that allows us to monitor and maintain a high calibre of professional service on a consistent basis.

We bet that at least one of the Professionals on CertainShops will be able to help you find a solution to some burning question.
