12.24.2011 · Posted in Business News Article

As long as bartering has been part of human economic activity, crooks have also existed. Unfortunately, they also go with the territory in today’s economy. Every day brings stories of people who have been caught up in pyramid schemes or been victims of identity theft. Sometimes it seems that you need to know people personally in order to trust their motives. Yes, it is unjust and unfair, but it’s also an inevitable part of modern life. There will always be people trying to make an easy buck.rnrnFinding a reliable business that isn’t out to rip off its customers can be difficult. So it’s natural to be a little cynical about the supposedly wonderful deals and heavy discounts offered by many companies today. In the past, you could trust that a person would deliver on a promise that had been made; a person’s word was his or her bond. Nowadays, it seems that promises can be easily made, and just as easily broken.rnrnOn a positive note, the Internet has provided the means to find out the trustworthiness of people, businesses or products. Review sites on the web enable us to learn about the real-life experiences that people have had with particular companies. Such sites are freely available and people can be very frank in their opinions. You get to hear the truth of the matter, not a story that has had a positive spin put on it.rnrnYou can also find websites that provide information to consumers about which companies have good or bad ratings. Not all companies out there have intentionally ripped customers off; unfortunately, some simply haven’t provided a good enough service or product. Taking contractors as an example, some contractors will do a great job within a reasonable timeframe; others will take forever and still generate second-rate work.rnrnThat’s why websites like Angie’s List and Super Pages were created. They wanted people to be able to talk about what companies and products are good, which aren’t, and which are total scams. This way we know we can get what we want the first time. We can also know which companies we can trust. This way we know we are getting quality products and services.rnrnThe Internet has definitely been proven to be a powerful resource. There’s so much more that we can use it for than just checking our email. Having the ability to read reviews on things before we buy them can save us a lot of frustration and money. We can know that the product that we are buying is quality and that we will get what we pay for. Or sometimes we find that a product that we wanted to buy is a total waste of money. Either way knowing what we are getting ourselves into is really important.rnrnIt’s sad to say, but it’s hard to find an honest company these days. Most companies and CEOs are only looking for themselves. Their only goal is to make as much money as they can. Sometimes this means producing low quality products, or cutting corners to save money. But thanks to websites like Angie’s List we can see what a product is like before we buy it, or what we can expect from a company.rnrnThere are still honest and decent companies out there, companies that still believe in quality and who value their promises. And thanks to reviews available on the Internet we now have a way between distinguishing the two.
