In order to deliver the brand experience to your customers consistent with Trusted Choice, Trusted Choice will reimburse a portion of expenses by Trusted Choice agencies in cobranding advertising and marketing materials, and in creating or updating a digital presence to include the Trusted Choice logo.
This is not meant to replace your agency’s brand, but to complement it by including the Trusted Choice branding in your marketing efforts. Reimbursement will only be made for use of the Trusted Choice logo (not the IIABA association logo, which looks very similar).
There are THREE options for reimbursement provided by the MRP in 2023.
All agencies are eligible for up to a $1,000 reimbursement for co-branded marketing and certain
digital improvements. This is a 50% match base on one allotment per member agency (limited to
one location). Funds will replenish for all members in 2024.
Use of the Trusted Choice logo on consumer-facing advertising. For access
