Chances are, you’ve already heard about our Trusted Service Awards, but if you haven’t, here’s a quick rundown.
Every year we reward businesses who are acing their customer service, delivering time and time again, and getting great feedback from their customers.
There are three different kinds of Trusted Service award:
Trusted Service award: For businesses who have collected 50 or more Feefo service reviews between January and December of the previous year, achieving a service rating of between 4.0 and 4.4.
Gold Trusted Service award: For those who have collected the same amount of reviews as above, but have achieved a rating of 4.5 and above.
Platinum Trusted Service award: For businesses that have won the Gold Trusted Service award three times in a row.
Our customers are constantly telling us how much their awards have helped them out; whether it’s been the trust signal they need to guide their customer’s decisions, or a morale boost for their staff.
Here are just some of the benefits of winning a Trusted Service award:
From TV ads to billboards, we encourage you to shout about your award as much as you can. Using your award in all the right places will help guide your customers in the right direction and give them the confidence they need to choose you over the competition.

The key to winning a Trusted Service award is not only delivering exceptional service, but also collecting lots of feedback. If you’ve got a great service rating but haven’t managed to collect enough service reviews to qualify, don’t fret, there are plenty of things you can do to boost your response rates and get more feedback.
One of the most effective ways of improving your response rate is by working on your feedback request emails. There are loads of things you can change on the requests to make them more engaging for your customers and relevant to your business, which in turn will encourage your customers to respond more often. We’ve created a best practice guide to show you all the things you can change here.
Our Campaign Manager Tool allows you to collect feedback at every stage of your customer’s journey, from sale right the way through to delivery and beyond. Not only does this do wonders for your response rate, but you’ll also get a better idea of the strong and weak parts of your service, so you can improve it, get better ratings, and fingers crossed, get a Trusted Service award in the bag!
If you’re already collecting Feefo reviews but haven’t quite got the service rating you need to qualify for a Trusted Service award, the answers could be hiding in your feedback. From our huge range of reports in the Feefo Hub to products such as Insight Tags and Performance Profiling, we offer you all the tools you need to get to the bottom of what’s going on in your business.
Once again, congratulations to all of our award winners – we hope you enjoy shouting about your win from the rooftops – you deserve it! To find out more about our Trusted Service awards, check out our FAQs or get in touch with a member of our team today.
