A Chance to Write About Your Solar Company on Angie’s List


As solar becomes more prominent on Angie’s List, it’s a good time to help increase public awareness of the value of solar to homeowners. The Angie’s List Experts program provides an opportunity to get the good solar word out to a wide audience.


We recently wrote about solar’s increasing prominence on Angie’s List.


Now, the service is giving businesses a chance to express themselves there – and offering cash prizes and a feature in the Angie’s List magazine – through the Spring 2014 edition of the Angie’s List Experts Article Contest.


If you’re at a company that’s highly rated on the list, the Experts program gives you the opportunity to educate consumers about the benefits of installing solar on their home. Articles published at the site carry the author’s byline and a description of why the author is an expert in the subject matter.


Nearly 1 million visitors read Expert articles last year on AngiesList.com. In addition to being published on the Angie’s List website, the articles are highlighted on Angie’s List social media channels, sparking discussion beyond the website. Recently published articles deal with subjects ranging from how to keep ice dams from your roof to how to know when you need a dermatologist for your pets to how to help your kids understand the need to save their pennies.


Let’s add solar to the mix of articles!


The spring contest offers prizes of $1,000, $500, and $250 for the best submissions. Extra credit is given for appropriate (and compelling) photos and videos.


To enter, visit the Angie’s List Experts page between now and March 31 and submit your 300- to 800-word consumer-focused article. The contest is open only to those companies with a recent Angie’s List grade of “B” or better.


For examples of past winners, see the Angie’s List site. Contest rules are also on the site. Winners will be announced in May — just in time for the sunniest time of the year!

Note:  Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska, North Dakota, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, and Vermont prohibit contests like this, so unfortunately, companies in those areas can’t participate.
