Angie’s List has recently removed their paywall. This means that you can now become a member without paying their annual fee. Also, reviews are now accessible to the general public. Now that reviews can be seen by all, not just paying users, what actions should you consider?
It’s not just contractors, landscapers, roofers, and others in the home improvement and repair arena who will be listed. You would expect that other types of businesses will begin to be represented on Angie’s List. While no one knows with certainty what industries will begin appearing on the site, it seems reasonable to consider listing your business. After all, it is free. Plus, it is a backlink from a site with high authority which will be of benefit to your SEO efforts.
Your reviews need to be monitored. Angie’s List has always had pretty in depth reviews and it is likely that will continue to be the case. If you have a bad review you’ll want to be aware as soon as possible. That way you can respond promptly and work to minimize any bad publicity. NOTE: If you are using a review monitoring tool, check to see if is pulling in the Angie’s List reviews.
