LOL..... I do try to get the most from it.
Classic Cleaning.... I've been a member for 2 year now. The 2nd week I got a call from a Manager of an Apartment complex to come and bid exterior vinyl siding cleaning. I ask, "Where did you get my Name and number?" "BBB website" was his answer. That was a 10 hour job for 3 guys and grossed $3550. I decided then that my yearly fee was paid for the next 10 years.
Our BBB may be different. They list its members on the website and in a printed directory that gets distributed to about 200,000 locations. Also, around town, there are billboards that advertise that people do business with a BBB Member.
I can only guage how well it has helped based on whether or not they found me through the BBB. However, I believe there may be some sales that I got because I had the symbol on my proposal sheet. I can't really tell if it is an edge over another bid that might only be less than mine by $10.
For $370, I don't see how it can hurt unless you just really don't have the money to spare.
FWIW, I am the only Member in my area because the others don't want to come off that $370.
