Trusty's is a services network: a localized directory where users search, browse and sort for service providers based on a reputation, location, price, and quality of service.
Trusty's replicates traditional, small-town, word-of-mouth recommendations by encouraging honest feedback from average consumers. Service providers and small business owners create profiles, manage reputations, and encourage references (reviews and ratings) from clients. Everyone who joins can add insight and share knowledge about which businesses provide good service (and which don't). Members communicate, share advice, seek referrals and build relationships across the community.
Trusty's provides a transparent system for comparing the relative strengths and weaknesses of service businesses, and a social network for sharing feedback and verifying references for anyone seeking reliable help.
