    I would recommend that you call Angie and they'll set you up. They have reps that will work with you to maximize your exposure on AL. While you can't pay to get listed, they do offer opportunities for highly rated businesses to promote your ranking to AL members.

    I am now averaging 2 - 3 calls per week.

    I close almost every A-L lead, and my average residential customer spends approximately $300. (For full disclosure, the volume of calls does fluctuate. There are many fewer calls in the winter, closer to 3 -4 per month.)

    Angies list is working great for lots of contractors BUT....
    Have a back up plan in case they go the way of the Dodo.
    They have run into growing losses with growing revenue and have never turned a profit, as a new IPO if this trend continues, there stock will plummet within two years and they will sell or close.

    Here is an article from an investor I follow. You can find many more like it.

    Here are the actual numbers. 49 million lost last year after 90 million in revenue, so it cost them $139million to run it last year

    Here are the losses per share for investors as the stock is a slow rising loss, it actually spiked today and trades on Nasdaq

    we use them, and have won the Super service award, they are great and bring in quality leads. But we may need to search for alternatives so we are not caught off guard if they dissolve.

    I currently have 40+ reports with no negative remarks. I have never paid A-L anything - except for decals for my vehicle. I've gotten the Super Service Award every year they've given them out - at least around here - 2008, 9, 10 and 11. The awards are given the year after they're won.

    Thanks Bill, I'll be sure not to invest in Angie! LOL I'm sure at some point, if they don't start making money, someone will buy them.
