I am highly disappointed with the services that EMSI Inc. gave me regarding the public reltations services that EMSI was supposed to provide with my book. I paid $3750 for 15 radio interview shows regarding my book. I finished 8 of the radio interviews in which 4 of the 8 interviews were less than 3 minutes and the majority of the interview were on very small stations in which no feedback was received (my book was very controversial and should have been easy to get on bigger stations in which I told EMSI on multiple occasions but they failed to produce. I decided to turn the remaining 7 radio interviews into EMSI getting me over 900 Twitter followers in which they succeeded by getting bogus followers and many spam/porn followers.

Next (before I learned my lesson with EMSI), I paid EMSI $4500 for a newspaper/magazine campaign in which I only received 4 total stories yet I was told that I could continue writing stories until I saw results. I tried to contact EMSI on mulitple occasions after my last story as I was supposed to have another story, but EMSI has up to this point acted as if I do not exist so now I want to expose them for the fraud that they have been to me as I don't want any other author to waste their money with a company such as EMSI. EMSI did follow through with their PR coaching and their customer service was good until they decided that my time was up after 4 stories, and I was clearly told that I would have more than 4 stories.  I'm not a negative person and it takes a lot for me to speak negatively about someone. However, when you feel as if someone has literally stolen thousands of dollars out of your pocket, then at least I feel that something must be said.

I, Shay Dawkins, revoke my previous comments as it was a misunderstanding. Everyone at EMSI, especially Alex Hinojosa, was a joy to work with. EMSI did meet the guarantees of our contract.

EMSI- Disappointed with how things turned out

AUTHOR: cb31 - (USA)

As an author, I invested over $8,000 with EMSI for a radio campaign (15 radio interviews) and a newspaper/magazine campaign. EMSI followed through with getting my radio interviews and in getting my stories with the newspaper/magazine campaign. My disappointment with EMSI is how I was told that I could continue to write newspaper/magazine stories (I received a total of 4 for $4500), yet I was told that my campaign was over after the fourth story and I was not able to continue writing stories in which EMSI would release on my behalf. I didn't receive the results that I felt I would. However, I take responsibility for that and my only complaint is how I was not enabled the opportunity to continue to write newspaper/magazine articles that I feel I deserved and paid for.
