Want to See Our ANGIES LIST REVIEWS
AS BOB BARKER USED TO SAY “COME ON DOWN!” Although ANGIES LIST prevents us from using our customer reviews online for legal reasons (they want to sell you a membership) we can download and keep them in our office. So come on down and read all of our reviews from the beginnning: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. The good reviews are from people we have actually done work for. The BAD REVIEWS are from people we refused to work for, jobs that were outside our scope of operations that we did not work for, or just disgruntled people we did not work for! So tossing those people out that we have not done work for…We have all A’s and a B. The majority of ANGIES LIST members are honest and upright, then you have the people using ANGIES LIST FOR LEVERAGE! LEVERAGE MEANS EITHER GIVE ME A DISCOUNT OR REFUND OR I’LL GIVE YOU A BAD REVIEW.
Oh yeah! We have an F from an out of state customer who tried to pull leverage! Changing his complaint every time we refuted the false claim, even changing the complaintant name. Why does ANGIES LIST allow a member to keep changing a complaint indefinitely and then to change the name and city of the complaint? With ANGIES LIST it’s ALL ABOUT THE MONEY! Even on refuted false claims, ANGIES LIST RESPONSE is that this is the members feeling about your company (even when no work was done). However, ANGIES LIST is QUICK to RESPOND WITH AD BUDGETS SO CONTRACTORS CAN BURY THAT BAD REVIEW! See how ANGIES LIST makes money off contractors bad reviews! GOOGLE COMPLAINTS ON ANGIES LIST!
Why not join ANGIES LIST?
We refuse to pay for REVIEWS OR for ADVERTISING with ANGIES LIST! Since ANGIES LIST went public a few years ago they dumped a ton of money in advertising to create a larger membership. Where does that revenue come from? Over 70% of ANGIES LIST revenue comes from contractors just like us. They encourage contractors to spend ($4, 000 – $50,000 advertising ) to get PRIME PLACEMENT over other more qualified contractors. ANGIES LIST that’s just not right! ANGIES LIST says contractors don’t pay and no conflict of interest.
Here’s our reviews… the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. What are our customers saying? 19 A, 1 B, and 1 F (BOGUS ). These are our customers, people we ACTUALLY HAVE DONE WORK FOR!
THE OTHER ANGIES LIST REVIEWS? NO WORK PERFORMED!
What other reviews? Oh yes, ANGIES LIST customers (not our customers) review contractors when no work is performed. Specifically, when we turn down work and the customer doesn’t like it, or when we no longer do that work (chain link fencing or special custom work). In one case, we talked to the homeowner over the phone and explained we no longer do chain link fencing. He rated us a C! ANGIES LIST says that is their opinion.
NOW REALLY …COME ON ANGIES LIST! So I guess you could call anyone ask for something they don’t do and rate them whatever you want! Is this the purpose of responsible reviews or a disgruntled person. ANGIES LIST…Time to Clean Up Your Act!!!
Reviews where no work is done? … 1 C, 1D, 1F.
ANGIES LIST – BOGUS REVIEW
So, you can see that when work is performed we have excellent reviews. The one exception is a BOGUS REVIEW. where a homeowner tried to force a BOGUS refund threatening a bad review, even changing the complaint 3 different times and then changed the complaint name. Now that one is a stretch, what is ANGIES LIST doing about this BOGUS REVIEW? Google ANGIES LIST COMPLAINTS to see how ANGIES LIST benefits from BAD REVIEWS. Actually ANGIES LIST coerces contractors to push for more A reviews from customers to bury the bad reviews. ANGIES LIST even has a program to pull every contractor’s previous customer’s name, address, and phone number to solicit membership and a positive review. ANGIES LIST also has sales people hounding contractors with phone calls and emails to advertise in ANGIES LIST specials, the BIG DEAL, and also ANGIES LIST magazine to promote selected contractors. Why are they selected? To bury a bad review! COME ON ANGIES LIST…CLEAN UP YOUR ACT and GET BACK TO YOUR ROOTS!
SEE THEM ALL – ANGIES LIST REVIEWS BRYANT FENCE COMPANY
While ANGIES LIST will not let us publish online our reviews, we do have access to all the reviews: the homeowners names, and addresses and their actual reviews. We keep these printed in a folder at our shop for your review…or you can pay ANGIES LIST for a yearly subscription to see them. Be careful if you subscribe to ANGIES LIST you may get billed over and over again even when you cancel! GOOGLE ANGIES LIST COMPLAINTS and SEE FOR YOURSELF the QUESTIONABLE ANGIES LIST PRACTICES.
Now don’t get me wrong, ANGIES LIST served a purpose a few years ago, before the IPO and the high pressure sales tactics. Now with the high expenses of national advertising ANGIES LIST is in a seemingly conflict of interest with over 70% of ANGIES LIST revenues coming from contractors!
How independent is that when over 70% of your revenue comes from contractors you are reporting on? And when there is a complaint, ANGIES LIST is quick NOT TO REVIEW the issue but to sell more advertising to bury the complaint. That is what this ole country boy calls a CONFLICT OF INTEREST or FOX GUARDING THE HENHOUSE!
