Angie�s List operates a consumer-driven service for members to research, hire,
rate and review local professionals for critical needs, such as home, health
care and automotive services. Our ratings and reviews, which are available only
to our members, help our members find the best provider for their local service
needs. We allow local service providers who are highly rated by our members to
advertise discounts and other promotions to our members. As of December 31,
2012, we offered our service to more than 1.7 million paying members in 219
local markets in the United States.
We help consumers purchase �high cost of failure� services in an extremely
fragmented local marketplace. These services, which include home remodeling,
plumbing, roof repair, health care and automobile repair, are typically
expensive and carry a high cost to the consumer if performed poorly.
