Our Review Guidelines – How do we rate?

What does it take to get a good rating on our site? To answer that, we need to first understand what “good” means. For us at LLCGeek.com, this is an LLC formation service that has high value for money, is easy and intuitive to use with great customer support, and offers all of the features you’ll need in order to start your business. We rate every company based on these 4 points so you can trust us when looking for recommendations.


The most important aspect we consider is how much bang for your buck you’re getting. We take a look at what each company charges and compare it to the features they offer. If there’s a big discrepancy, then it’s easy to see which one is the better value.

That said, we also understand that everyone has different needs when it comes to LLC formation. Some people are looking for very specific features, so they might have to pay a bit more in order to get them. Other times you may be willing to sacrifice certain things in exchange for saving money or getting exactly what you need. So while we look at the cost of services quite frequently, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the cheapest company is always the best.

User Friendly

Another important aspect we often look at is how intuitive and easy to use the website and its features are. There’s no point in offering a product that you can’t easily access or requires special knowledge just to navigate through it all. This isn’t only about the user interface either. Even if they have lots of great tools, but they’re complicated to use, and that’s not going to help you get your business off the ground.

So we make sure to test out every company’s products and see how easy they are to work with. We also look at things like customer support and whether or not they have any tutorials or guides to make it easier for you.

Customer Support

We know how vital good customer service is when it comes to running a small business. It’s even more important if you’re just starting out and trying everything for the first time, so we make sure that every company on our site has top-notch support.

Whether it be by phone, email, or live chat, there are multiple ways of getting in touch with them and hopefully resolving any issue you may have. We also check to see how responsive they are, both when we reach out for help and when customers leave reviews.

Additional Features

Finally, we take a look at the features that each company offers. This can vary from state to state, so it’s important to make sure you’re getting all of the services you need. For example, some companies might offer registered agent services while others don’t. Or they may have different filing fees depending on which package you choose.

So we list all of the features that each company offers and make it easy for you to compare them. We also highlight any unique offerings they might have, so you can decide if they’re worth paying a bit more for.
