Angie's List

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, first post here but I've been a lurker for a little while. Lots of good info here! Anyway, I've been contacted by Angie's List a few times now about advertising on their site. Cost would be under $200 a month and the Charlotte area has about 44,000 members. Has anyone ever advertised with them and was it worth it?


Thanks in advance,





*Edit- as of now we have 17 reviews with them and have an "A" rating, a few of my current, high ticket customers have found us through Angies List.*

They are always trying to get me to advertise with them. I haven't spent any money with them because there isn't much of a following for me in this area and I don't have many reviews so it wasn't worth my money. If you have a bunch of reviews, I would strongly consider it because people are already reviewing you anyway.

I get their stuff in the mail all the time. I really don't think it amounts to much. The way I see it, the type of people who take the time to write their complaints down are the same type that are not going to become regular customers. A small portion of the general public that go to these sites to review your shop are the cautious type. They are probably still going to come into your shop.... regardless.


If the wacko's out there can write to the BBB or other places like Angie's list about how bad the industry is... I sure as hell can write about the wacko's that come into my the business. Two can play at that game. LOL Sometimes you've got to see the realism from both angles and not just from a list.

      A recent study, done by Harvard Business School, concluded that the real problem with attracting and retaining employees has more to do with the workplace environment, not pay or benefits. While the study did find that an adequate pay plan and offering an attractive benefits package did help with recruiting and retention, it’s not enough to satisfy the needs of employees, especially those of front-line workers.
      The study also stated that in 2021, many companies were convinced that giving raises, sign-on bonuses, and other perks would solve the worker shortage problem and prevent people from quitting. However, this strategy did not work. So, what does work regarding attracting quality people and keeping them employed?
      Essentially, it all comes down to the culture of your company.  Management: do all it can to consider the individual needs of your employees. Your employees want to feel that they have a voice, that their opinion counts, and that their role in your company is both respected and recognized. Yes, pay and a great benefits package will go a long way toward making your employees feel secure, but that’s only financial security. People want more than money.
      To attract and keep top talent requires creating a company that people feel proud to work for. You need to reach the hearts and minds of your employees. Become a leader that people are enthusiastic about working for. You want your employees bragging to their friends and family that your shop is a great place to work!
      Step one to attracting and retaining quality employees: Create an amazing workplace environment for your employees!  Trust me, happy employees make happy shop owners too!
