Unlike many of the commission-based salesmen on the other end of the phone, Bill always has your best interests in mind. If negotiated properly, your Angie’s List experience can be a lucrative one. But, if the salesperson is able to take advantage of you through various “questionable” sales techniques, then you could end up wasting a LOT of money.
