Angie's List

How well does Angie's List work for you guys ?

We've tried it before, it took awhile but eventually it started working really well once we had a lot of good reviews.

Angie's List has been an incredible asset to our business. We spend tens of thousands every year in print, internet, direct mail, etc., but Angie's List, at about a thousand dollars, is our number one source of leads.

Explain how you spend a thousand dollars on angies list? I thought its 100% user reviews and you can't pay to be placed or altered on it.

We advertise on it, both online and in the print. We're the top rated landscape company in the New Orleans area. But, to confirm what you said, you don't HAVE to advertise to be on it.

I guess if you get a certain rating you can pay to advertise on it.

How do gauge the effectiveness of your advertisement as opposed to just being a listed vendor ?

My wife is a member and did a search for lawn care and yard work in my market. I am on the third page, below some that have no reviews. I have a couple of good reviews. Angie's list, if you pay, will make sure you appear on the first page. You rotate spots, meaning you may be listed first one time and 12th the next time. You can't buy the first spot. In my market, the price is higher than $1000.00 for the year, but not a significant amount more. I am a bit leery of doing it, however, as what happens if you get a BAD review and you've paid to be on the list.
