Better Business Bureau (BBB) accreditation

Anyone accredited via the BBB? How much do they charge? Is it worth paying the fees to be accredited?

Not sure how relevant is the BBB now, considering Yelp, Angie's List, and Google have become mainstays for searching up businesses.

I learned BBB are now utilizing a "review" feature in the likes of Yelp model.

In honesty, when I personally search for a service online, I do not take into consideration whether a business is BBB accredited or not. My main focus is reading the actual reviews on Yelp, Angies List, and Google.

Yeah, I'd say 2015 and beyond will see the BBB mean less and less unless they become the next Yelp.

I've had 1 person talk about the BBB since 1998.... actually since 1995 when I started my first business. But some people swear by the BBB.

The new review system they added tells me they want to compete or stay relevant in regards to Yelp & Angies List.

Perhaps they will fade into obscurity like Citysearch and Yahoo! Local
