Just wondering if any other contractors are getting referrals from Angie's List?
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 have Angie's listing but I don't get anything from it. I have found it very difficult to update and it is probably not set up.
Anyone want to help me?
Those are great numbers , do you have the average revenue formula for that ?
Text me anytime for question 480-522-5227
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.John how many reports do you have?? I find that is probaly the most important factor, also do you pay to be listed on the first page??
do you have the super service award these are all very important.Another way to get great exposure is the big deal.
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.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.
You have to keep a B+ or better rating to be able to even have the option to get better placement. Tony, give them a call tomorrow and talk with them. They can shine more light on this subject. When you call tomorrow tell that that you wanna join and they will tell you no. You can't just sign up.
