2020 Trusted Choice Marketing Reimbursement Program (MRP)

Trusted Choice will reimburse a portion of expenses incurred in 2020 by Big “I” members for cobranding advertising and marketing materials. This is not meant to replace your agency’s brand, but to complement it by including the Trusted Choice branding in your marketing efforts.

Levels of Reimbursement

There are 2 levels of reimbursement provided by the MRP in 2020:

Option  1: Cobranding with Trusted Choice - Available for new members and first time MRP users only.

Trusted Choice reserves the right to deny any request for reimbursement that uses the Trusted Choice logo in a manner that is not consistent with the Trusted Choice Brand Style Guide or the guidelines of the MRP. Only the Trusted Choice logo is eligible for reimbursement from the MRP.

    If you are unsure about an item or use of the logo, want to get pre-approval of an item or proof prior to printing, or need to check if your agency or branch locations are eligible for any reimbursement, email us at Trusted.Choice@iiaba.net or call 800.221.7917.

    Guiding principles of the Marketing Reimbursement Plan:

  • Allows for any activity involving the Trusted Choice logo in external messaging with consumer impact for new members and first time MRP users; and for an updated digital presence for all members.
  • The application must provide reasonable documentation that an expense was incurred and paid.
  • The nature of the expense is reasonably correlated to the external messaging and promotes the Trusted Choice brand to consumers.
  • The MRP will not reimburse ongoing expenses like directory listings, subscriptions to marketing services, expenses for yellow pages ads, website hosting/maintenance outside of web.com/preferred vendor or other phone book type advertising.
