       Today, I received a phone call from my local BBB asking basically if I will pay to join the BBB...It is like  600-700 to join the BBB and use the logo on my website and it is like 300-400 to just join the BBB and use the logo on print. Is it worth it? Any one  join the BBB? Any benefits? Is it a waste of money?

    I have heard two seperate talking heads of business on the am talk radio station in my area. They both said, don`t waste your time with the BBB unless you have money to spend for very little return.

    They approached me at a tradeshow last year. I investigated the benefits of a BBB logo online, and after talking to several people decided against it.

    I just didn`t see any direct benefit.
