I had someone contact me today about joining the BBB. Has anyone found this helpful?

I am sure it would be helpful. I just couldn't afford the $250.00 they wanted right now.

I'm a member and I think it's helpful because of the arbitation program they have. Even if you never use it, you can let clients know that it's there if they need it. I also get a lot of people checking me out through the BBB, they let you know when people search for your information.

I looked into it a few years ago. It was too expensive and I had to go to meetings every week at 7am. I couldn't do it with the kids.

I joined. I classify it as "I'm not sure that it helps .... but it sure doesn't hurt!"

Mine cost more than $250 (wow, can I move to your area and get your rate, please?????) but I dont' have to go to any meetings with them.

I do belong to BNI and I have a 7:00 a.m. meeting every Tuesday ... well worth getting up early for that one! thumbs_up.gif

I am a BBB member. I have never had to use their services, but I like hanging the sign up in my store. I think it shows that you are serious about your business and serious about doing a good job. I also get a sign every year to hang up....Complaint free in 2008,etc.
