Occasionally we get asked why we’re not accredited by the Better Business Bureau and we are more than happy to answer that question, and do so publicly On personal opinion we believe that the Better Business Bureau is a bit of an “old boys club” not based on solid information and don’t always agree with the degree of importance that is put on their reviews. Now that is not to say that their mission: to weed out bad businesses that don’t adhere to certain standards, is being questioned or discredited. There are, unfortunately, businesses out there that don’t follow a very ethical code when conducting business and don’t have their customer’s best interests at the forefront of their minds and business model, hence a need for checks and balances to be in place. The point we are reaching is that we believe that being considered a better business isn’t just based off of one companies check and balance system. It is based off a much larger audience’s opinion and that opinion is voiced through social settings such as social media and personal testimonies passed on from person to person.
Regardless of personal feelings, although we are not officially accredited we are excited to share that Parley Consulting has a Better Business Bureau rating of A+ (whatever that means). The factors that raised Parley Consulting’s overall score are the length of time being in business, there are no complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau, and the Better Business Bureau has sufficient information on Parley Consulting.
I am very happy to get asked if we are accredited by the Better Business Bureau because it means people are being responsible consumers and taking it upon themselves to get information on the company that they are looking to work with. I am twice as happy to tell people that we are not accredited because we already have the A+ rating based on what the Better Business Bureau knows. We could pay the yearly fee to become accredited and of course nothing would change in regards to our A+ rating, however, Parley Consulting doesn’t agree with frivolous marketing expenses such as these that would make out business costs and thus client prices higher.
We rely on the testimonials of passed clients and business to business colleagues to perpetuate our positive reputation. We encourage clients and colleagues to discuss any issues or recommendations with us personally because we are dedicated to ensuring clients and colleagues have the best possible experience and result through our company. Yes, it is that simple. We have a transparent and open door policy between our company and our clients which we are very proud of.
